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.

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.

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.

We all have a unique journey in life, as individuals and as couples, and I believe that our resilience is as unique as our journey. I work with clients to help them overcome distressing cycles that make them feel stuck and empower them to find stability, create healthier relationships and live an enriched life. Together we explore underlying emotions and find new ways of coping with past traumas, difficult life transitions, loss, relational distress and other mental health issues. While EMDR, mindfulness and cultural sensitivity are at the core of my practice, I also integrate Psychodynamic and CBT interventions.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is central to effective therapy. Using an approach built on empathy, openness, and warmth, I provide an environment where you can say anything that comes to mind and be yourself more fully and authentically. When we have our experiences heard and validated by another, it enhances our understanding and acceptance of ourselves. Working from a psychodynamic framework, I believe it is important to learn about our early life experiences and how that impacts our current emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and relationships.

Working from an integrative, psychodynamic approach, my clients generally find that therapy goes beyond symptom relief, and that over time, it helps them to develop a more vibrant and authentic sense of self--leading to healthier relationships, clearer thinking, and a deeper sense of meaningfulness and engagement in life.
Life is a journey, and often we get lost along the way. Psychotherapy is a transformative process that helps you to locate your internal compass, so that you can live a more fulfilling and productive life; navigate difficult periods and transitions; and ultimately feel more comfortable in your own skin. As a clinical psychologist, I have years of experience and training working with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, career obstacles, self-esteem, family discord, grief and loss, defeating patterns of behavior, and the process of coming to terms with difficult and traumatic life situations.

My training has primarily been psychodynamic and thus I believe our past has an impact on our present, however I draw on other approaches as needed including EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing).
Anxiety and depression are concerns for people of all ages and frequently contribute to feelings of stress. I work closely with individuals whose struggles are getting in the way of developing safe, loving relationships and achieving objectives as well as those who are facing major life transition and feeling overwhelmed. Providing a warm, supportive relationship, I work with clients to identify and change patterns of behavior that are troubling them. For all of us, within the context of major stressors and recent or distant traumas, opportunities are present for identifying and building on our strengths.
