I have been a psychotherapist in private practice for fifteen years. I see individuals (adults and adolescents) and couples. I work from a relational model having completed a three year post graduate program with the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. I realize the importance of the therapeutic relationship and encourage clients to choose a therapist that they feel safe and understood by but also challenged by during the session. For the initial session, I offer 50% off of my rate to allow for people to determine if I am able to provide that type of treatment for them.

With couples, I use a developmental model based on self-psychology. I use the Gottman model to help improve couples' communication. Lastly, I encourage couples to consider the mind-body relationship. I provide pre-marital counseling that focuses on models of marriage, expectations, finances, sex and communication in four sessions.

I specialize in working with women and couples on reproductive health issues. I provide the George Washington Hospital Fertlity Clinic psychosocial assessments for those clients pursuing infertility treatment.
