Having witnessed and participated in twenty years of clients' progress, I have great confidence in this powerful process. We all want to feel optimistic and enjoy our lives, with minimal stress, doubts, anxiety, depression , and confusion. Most of us have strong and centered parts that were buried or muted as a result of trauma, loss or other painful experiences. Learning to empower these healthy parts helps us manage inevitable difficult thoughts and feelings more calmly and effectively and to enjoy healthy relationships. Depending on individual situations, short term therapy or Skype sessions may be possible.

You've spent much of your life doing the things that you "should," so you wonder, "why don't I feel happier?" People may see you as "put together" and accomplished from the outside, but inside, you feel numb, chaotic, anxious, or even broken. I help people who've been through traumatic experiences feel in charge of their lives again without being held back by painful memories from the past. If you feel angry, stressed, depressed , guilty, or self-loathing, I want you to know that there is a way through this to a meaningful and happy life.

My specialty includes the treatment of individuals with anxiety, depression , and maladaptive, interpersonal relationships.
I realize that for an individual to take the first steps toward looking inward at various psychological conflicts may be an anxiety-provoking process in and of itself, may even be a sense of relief, or a combination of the two. Through my professional training and experience in various treatment settings, I have had the honor to work with individuals and provide them the respect, privacy, and confidentiality that I believe every human being deserves. I focus on providing a safe, trusting, and confidential environment in which one may gain insight and understanding and ultimately grow through this therapeutic relationship.

I have over 10 years of experience as a psychotherapist working with patients who have anxiety and depression . My expertise is in working with emerging adults as they transition out of college and face an enormity of challenges. There is so much uncertainty facing young adults as they establish independence, begin their careers in earnest, and work to define who they are. I also have additional training in working with mothers and parents transitioning to parenthood. The current estimates are that between 1 in 5 to 1 in 7 moms experience postpartum depression and anxiety and it's the most common complication of childbirth.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Dupont Circle, Washington. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
