I use a variety of interventions, from psychodynamic to humanistic to cognitive behavioral therapy, to help reduce self-defeating behaviors, while developing new ways to perceive life events, interact in the world and have healthier relationships.
At times, we struggle through life’s challenges, perhaps feeling stuck or unsure of the path forward. Maybe you’re going through a stressful transition, burdened by emotional pain, or just have an inkling that life isn’t going “right.” Psychotherapy can help you navigate life’s difficulties and cope more effectively. My focus is to understand your concerns, help you consider underlying causes, work on making better choices and increase your sense of control over unwanted behaviors and thoughts. Regardless of the intensity, severity, and frequency of your concerns, nothing is too small or too big to benefit from psychotherapy.

I am a psychodynamic psychologist. As such, I believe that our early experiences shape our later expectations of ourselves and our relationships. I assist patients in examining patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may have begun early in life and continue to generate unhappiness with the goal of helping to relieve the depression and anxiety. As patients gain self-awareness and come to recognize and handle their feelings more adeptly, they often develop a more cohesive identity. While working to mitigate them, I am mindful of understanding what underlies the patient's vulnerability to developing these particular symptoms.

I use a combination of therapeutic approaches, primarily relying on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic theory and family systems theory.
I am a clinical social worker, practicing since 1993, and have accumulated a breadth of professional experience working with children, adolescents, and adults through various stages of life. My approach is warm, engaging, collaborative and positive, with an initial goal of developing a trusting and supportive connection. Together, we will then create a treatment strategy that is tailored to you. Regardless of the approach, I strive to create a safe space that invites honesty, insight, creativity and even humor. If you are interested in exploring the possibility of therapy, I welcome the opportunity to offer my assistance.

I provide a relational approach mostly while relying on cognitive behavioral tools and psychodynamic concepts to help to develop insights.
I specialize in LGBTQ+ issues, though you do not need to be on that spectrum to work with me. Typically clients approach me because of overwhelming stress, difficult feelings, or experiences that are affecting interpersonal relationships, career goals, sense of life satisfaction or fulfillment. I provide practical tools to assist you with managing your anxieties while highlighting aspects of your internal narrative that may no longer serve you. My approach will allow you to regain a sense of control and perhaps normalize what you're experiencing helping you redefine who you are.

My advanced training includes fellowship programs at major psychoanalytic institutes in Washington, DC; and psychodynamic clinical training at the Washington School of Psychiatry.
Do you feel anxious, sad, lonely, or isolated? Do you struggle with pain connected to racism, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or one of the many ways we can be made to feel less than or not ourselves? Whatever the reason, your decision to seek out therapy is courageous because it is filled with significant emotional risk. As we build a relationship together, your thoughts, feelings, experiences, fears, and fantasies will be heard and treated with respect, curiosity, and care. You’ll find a gentle, affirming, and nonjudgmental space where we can better understand what brought you here and how you might move forward.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Dupont Circle, Washington, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
