Do you feel alone or misunderstood? Are some days especially hard to feel hopeful? I believe every person has strength that can sometimes feel difficult to find. I approach therapy in a way of helping you identify your strengths and make sense of your past experiences so that you can live more fully in the present and begin building the future that you want. I specialize in providing trauma-focused psychotherapy to adults who have experienced or are experiencing trauma/PTSD, are having relationship issues, and/or facing low self-esteem.

Specialites: Licensed clinical social worker (DC, MD, VA), Certified clincial trauma professional (CCTP), Trauma systems therapy, (TST), Trauma Focused CBT (TF-CBT), Brief Solutions therapy, Eclectic therapy, Motivational and Person-centered.
Patients come to me with several different concerns. I see families, adults, seniors and couples (out-of-pocket) interested in enhancing their lives and building upon what they already use to guide them. I use different modalities to help address those concerns. First, we assess the concerns and develop a plan together. Then we begin our sessions by getting to know each other through a "therapeutic relationship." Followed by methodically working our way through psychoeducation and mixed modalities to address each concern. Periodically, we reelevate your progress and adjust based on your personal needs.

Therapy is a unique experience for each person. It helps you learn yourself, your relationships (past and present), and how you interact with the world. It is a place of self healing and understanding. It is a place to find safety and refuge to manage stress,anger, guilt, anxiety, overwhelming feelings, trauma, interpersonal conflict, and significant life events. I work with youth and adults to help address these issues. I am trained as a psychodynamic therapist, practicing from a relational standpoint. I use several clinical approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment theory, and trauma focused therapy as needed.

I'm trained in Trauma Focused -CBT, The Neurological Effects of Traumatic Stress, Group Psychotherapy, and DBT.
When things seem out of your control, it can be difficult to stay focused and feel empowered to make good decisions for yourself and create the life you want. If you are a capable, driven individual and you are wondering why you feel stuck, or unhappy, you are not alone. We all need help at times accessing our own voice, working through the ways we are stuck, and finding happiness through the choices we make. I am currently offering tele-health (secure video chat) intake, and therapy sessions for those needing extra support right now, and those not wanting to wait to seek help until after the COVID-19 situation has eased up.

I am privileged to have a diverse training background in structural family therapy, trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and the male trauma empowerment recovery model.
I view my engagement with individuals who are focused on building a life worth living as a core passion that supports a positive treatment experience. I enjoy working with teenagers, adults and couples who are navigating life issues that are preventing them from fulfilling their highest potential or accessing their best self. I also take pleasure in partnering with individuals on their journey as the therapeutic process can be just as enriching as the realization of the identified treatment goal.

Simply put, an ideal client is the one who just shows up. Whether or not you have been gently encouraged to seek therapy or you have made the decision on your own, it takes courage and intention to move forward on your journey towards growth, self-awareness, and healing. I tend to work well with clients who appreciate elevating and employing their level of introspection and insight. Ideal clients prefer and are open to delving deeper beneath the surface while at the same time understanding and appreciating the importance of behavioral based tools, techniques and interventions that ultimately help practical functionality.

A therapist for the last 23 years, I spent the twenty preceding years in large firm law practice in SF, DC and NY. At almost. the last minute, i grabbed hold of my life, and turned it upside down. This turned out very well. Now, every day I get to delight in working with people in a frank and open way, with the aim of changing their lives for the better. Life is difficult — there’s no way around that. But when you and your therapist are a good fit, the therapy relationship can expand your world, deepen your knowledge of yourself, improve your relationships, and release you to a life you can enjoy more fully and freely.
