I work especially well with younger children and their caregivers ages 3 and older, teens and parents, as well as women who struggle with anxiety.
I believe everyone is the expert of their life and as a therapist, I see myself as a humble guide in finding your own voice again and to empower you through your anxiety. I enjoy helping clients achieve their goals by using solution-focused therapy and a client-centered approach. I particularly enjoy supporting all individuals and families who are expectant, new, and experienced, through the perinatal period and beyond, as well as supporting young children in their development. Other groups I specialize in working with are individuals and families with learning difficulties and neurodevelopmental disabilities at school and at home.

I also work with parents and children through parent- child interaction training.
Since childhood, I've had a strong desire to help people. That desire grew to helping people identify what they need to create a fulfilling and enriching life through self discovery and acceptance. As a licensed therapist in Maryland and D.C., certified infant and early childhood mental health provider for over 10 years, I understand that in creating the life you want, sometimes, healing and restoration must take place. Helping people acknowledge and understand the integral parts of themselves through acceptance, self love and security in who they are is the focus of my practice and at the core of the work we will do together.

I also offer play therapy to children in close collaboration with parents.
Knowing when to reach out for help is one of the most important things in life - I'm glad you're here. I work with clients to address anxiety, depression, trauma, and travel phobias; to navigate grief, life transitions, and relationship issues; and to establish a healthy sense of self that doesn't change with other people's opinions. I also work with individuals who aren't sure at first what they want to work on but have a vague sense that they aren't as happy as they want to be. Whatever the concern, we explore it in a safe and relaxed atmosphere and agree together on a plan to move forward.

I see children , adolescents, and adults, including children struggling with their parents' separation or divorce.
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.

In all forms, relationships are a guiding part of our lives and directly impact how we live. My practice is guided by psychodynamic/psychoanalytic theory, and I believe therapist and client thinking together creates insight and deeper understanding, which allows you to learn about your inner world. As you come to know yourself, a positive space opens up to afford you an opportunity to grow, evolve, and flourish. As a psychoanalyst I have studied for many years including infant and young child observational studies, my clinical experience includes trauma, depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships, and life-changing events.

I love working with college and graduate students, professionals, parents of young children , folks living with ADHD, and folks living with chronic illness who are seeking greater work-life balance, belonging, and significance.
Now accepting new telehealth clients! Please e-mail me. Seeking support is a courageous act of self-love. I would love to explore the possibility of working together. Clients often come in with symptoms of depression and anxiety and feel disconnected from themselves and others. My hope is to build a trusting relationship where you can explore the emotional obstacles that are preventing you from reaching your goals, and to help you identify the underlying emotions motivating behaviors such as hurt, sadness, fear, loss, and loneliness. My clients report feeling listened to, understood, and empowered.
