Are you having trouble with managing life’s responsibilities or “Adulting”? Are you troubled by your teen’s mood, decision-making skills, or grades? Do you have concerns about your child’s development, learning, or behavior? Adults respect and appreciate my honesty and creative approach to conquering life’s ever-changing paths. Teens like that I can speak in plain language with them, about issues they face growing up in a technologically-advancing world. Parents appreciate that I work from a strengths-based and empowerment approach. I offer support to parents who struggle with how to help their children with these difficult issues.

Therapy is the process of rediscovering clarity, purpose, and joy. While starting therapy can seem daunting, I offer a warm, nonjudgmental space in which we'll explore your concerns together. I use compassion and humor to help you move through pain and worry, so that you can be more fully present in your life, relationships, and community. I will work hard with you to release unhealthy or frustrating ways of thinking or behaving that stand between you and the life you want. I strive to meet my clients with empathy and authenticity, backed up by over twenty years of experience and a commitment to research-based methods.

Whether you're feeling inundated by challenging life experiences, navigating life transitions, or struggling with a relationship that's depleting your personal resources, I welcome the opportunity to work with you. You don't have to figure this out on your own. The fundamental value of therapy is being able to speak with an empathic person about what is happening in your life. It is an opportunity to be heard and recognized in the midst of whatever is occurring for you.

My approach is geared towards helping clients make choices and relate to others in ways that reinforce their feelings of autonomy, fulfillment, and peace. We engage to explore current situations and the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and then develop strategies to help better manage situations or make decisions. Strategies we explore may include short term action plans as well as longer term resilience building to manage ongoing challenges. I will work with clients to develop new ways of interpreting difficulties, understanding others, and communicating that are in line with their own values and hopes.

My belief that the therapeutic relationship is the key element of successful treatment informs my practice. This working relationship, based on mutual trust and shared goals, allows for self-exploration and ultimately personal growth. In working with individuals, couples, families and/or groups I think that connecting the dots between past and present allows the client to have a better grasp on what is influencing her/his feelings and life choices leading to greater empowerment and life satisfaction.

Many of us are looking outside ourselves for love, fulfillment and joy only to find ourselves deeply dissatisfied, lonely and separated from connection and intimacy with others and ourselves. Life can be difficult and is filled with challenges and traumatic experiences that require our attention and care in order to heal. We are skilled at silencing the aching inside via escape hatches: excessive shopping, over/under eating, using drugs or alcohol, sex, gambling, gaming, etc. I believe the therapeutic relationship can offer support as we move into freedom by learning to live in the present moment with all life has to offer.

Life can be hard sometimes, leaving us with bumps, bruises, and wounds that are difficult to heal on our own. Therapy is a space where you can better understand yourself so that you can heal and find a different and more meaningful way of being in the world. In the context of a safe and empathic therapeutic relationship, you are able to listen better to yourself, understand your emotional pain, and see the ways that it has impacted your life. It is through this process that the work of therapy can be both hard but ultimately rewarding.

I am a Licensed Graduate Social Worker (LGSW) currently practicing within the District of Columbia. Children, teens, and young adults are the foundation for our future society. This population and their families are the bulk of the services that I provide. My therapeutic sessions focus on relieving stress by simply solving problems. My approach is to be honest, direct, while creating an environment for openness and collaborating with clients on their goals. Cognitive Behavior Therapy is the theoretical approach of preference. I believe that everyone can change, and that your journey should not be compared to anyone else.
