Anxiety, depression, and other experiences that bring us to therapy are some of life's greatest challenges, but they are also valuable opportunities for growth. With a therapist's help our struggles can become an opening to deeper self-understanding, to new ways of living, and even to new beginnings. Our suffering requires us to seek help so that we may learn to better help ourselves. With proper support we can come to see that our symptoms and difficulties in a new way- as the first difficult steps on a journey of learning and growth.

Throughout life we can experience challenges within our selves and our relationships. We can find ourselves feeling confused, stuck, unhappy, or unsatisfied. We might notice changes in our moods or behaviors, or feel more affected by stressors than at previous times in our lives. I specialize in adult psychotherapy, including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, and LGBTQ issues. Other specialty areas include challenges in navigating transitions in young adulthood, relationships, and identity.

We will begin to develop trust, respect, and a personal connection so that you feel safe and understood. Also specializing in marriage/couples work I am a Certified EFT - Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist.

I am a Clinical Social Worker, licensed to practice in DC, Maryland and Virginia. I work with adults from all walks of life who are dealing with personal issues including depression, anxiety, relationships, identity, and COVID anxiety. I am passionate about the healing power of therapy. Therapy can resolve long standing psychological issues that take great courage to address. It can also be a great support when people deal with unexpected life changes, such as for example COVID, illness, loss of a loved one, becoming a parent, divorce, homesickness, adjusting to a new environment, starting a new career.

Therapy is a choice that may allow for insight, personal awareness and change. Therapy allows you to increase self-awareness so that you can be accountable for you thoughts, feelings, and actions and learn to avoid triggering situations, unhelpful patterns of behavior and overcome challenges you are facing. I firmly believe in a person's potential for growth by integrating aspects of their past into the present in an effort to heal. As you learn to externalize parts of your self, it is my hope that you become more comfortable with vulnerability and present in your daily life.

I'm a licensed clinical psychologist trained at Harvard Medical School. Occasionally, we notice patterns of thinking, behaving, and experiencing others & ourselves, which can feel very familiar and frustrating. Or we can be hit by sudden life circumstances like loss, transition, identity shifts, or trauma that leave us feeling overwhelmed & scared, where existing strengths and coping skills are outstripped. Through a dynamic and collaborative process, I help patients understand & transform their old ways of being to feel more connected, renewed, and, ultimately, to better flourish in their relationships, work, and within themselves.

Seeking help takes courage. I am invested in working together toward making the changes you seek by creating a safe, trusting environment where we can explore the roadblocks holding you back. I practice in a holistic community where many modalities of treatment are used to promote healing. Do you feel "keyed up" most of the time or continue to behave in damaging patterns where you know the "why" but can't seem to make changes? Talk may not be enough.

Welcome, I truly believe that therapy is a brave and courageous choice. I strive to create a warm, empathetic, and safe environment for each client that chooses to work with me. I have a special expertise working with both adolescents and adults with mood disorders. Our relationship will be used as an element of change. Often, I will utilize aspects of our relationship to highlight barriers to change and provide a warm and directive approach to push you towards growth. My approach within our therapeutic relationship tends to be more collaborative and I commonly use interventions including mindfulness, CBT, DBT and attachment theory.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. Together we will face any changes, fears, anxiety and emotions you are experiencing, allowing you to gain more grounding and peace. I will work with you from an integrative, holistic approach to determine together what is needed for your coping, healing and self-care.

I specialize in working with young adults, adolescents, and their families in individual, couple, and family therapy. Sometimes we worry that coming to therapy means something is wrong. I believe it means something is right. Often, my clients find themselves facing more decisions and questions about who they are and what they want out of their lives and relationships than ever before. This is an important time in life when many people ask themselves: How can I feel like what I do matters?

I help individual adults to feel and function better and find far more effective ways to address life's difficulties. I also help couples to restore intimacy (or to part amicably, if need be) by teaching effective conflict resolution skills. The fact is, most people feel ambivalent about starting therapy or couples counseling. By now, you might feel fairly uncomfortable and frustrated, realizing that everyone's friendly advice, the self-help books and web articles, and all of your existing coping mechanisms have not worked for you. You want relief and results now.

I use an active, serious and friendly approach to help you figure out where you are right now and how to move forward. Talking with a professional psychologist can organize your thinking and transform your outlook. You can overcome issues such as anxiety, fearfulness, low mood, career concerns, dating troubles, family problems and more when you move past emotional roadblocks. Problem-solve for 1-2 sessions or take a deeper look at your underlying thoughts and habits. When you understand yourself more fully you can take action to make your life better.

One of the hardest parts of the therapeutic process is choosing the right therapist for you, and I hope to join you on your journey towards greater self-understanding, compassion, and insight. Many people come to therapy after experiencing emotional distress that has led them to feel overwhelmed and as though they have lost direction in, and control of, their life. In a safe and non-judgmental space, I work collaboratively with my clients to explore ways in which they can effectively regain a sense of empowerment, meaning, and control in their lives.

People of all ages and walks of life have felt comfortable opening up in my presence, and many find our work together to be the foundation and structure for new areas of self knowledge and profound emotional growth. I connect with people that are in pain or who have been hurt, people that are confused, overwhelmed or just feeling bad. Through our work, we will facilitate a stronger sense of who you are and a greater ability for relational engagement -- discovering and building a full, desired life. I balance softness and smiles with challenge, deep curiosity and playfulness.
