I pursued advanced clinical training in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Stanford so that I could learn and implement the most current, effective treatments for anxiety and eating disorders.
Throughout my training I pursued clinical experiences that provided me with a solid foundation in understanding, assessing and treating individuals and families. I have worked with infants, children, adolescents and young adults with diverse challenges. I collaborate with families in a non-judgmental, open and compassionate manner. I draw upon my knowledge of evidence based practices that have scientific support for their effectiveness to provide treatment that is well matched to an individual's or family's strengths.

I am a clinical psychologist practicing in Tysons Corner, Virginia and the Friendship Heights area of Northwest Washington, DC, and treat adolescents, adults, and couples. My approach is interactive, hopeful, and supportive. Some of my specialty areas include depression, anxiety, self-esteem, relationships, and adolescent distress (including parent/ teenager communication). I work in a collaborative and flexible manner. I help clients to gain greater insight into their behaviors, thought patterns, and emotional reactions. As self-awareness develops, clients report an increased sense of control over their choices, improved self-worth and, as a result, more rewarding relationships and fulfilling lives.

I team with adults, children, and parents to create solutions and awaken aspects of themselves they would like to grow. We work together to heal past pain, strengthen, and to build a fresh start. Our sessions will allow you to take time for yourself to step away from the expectations and pressures of the outside world so that you can feel, see, and build a stronger self. Taking a break from work, school, and life for one or two sessions a week allows for clarity of mind, strengthening of self, and a generation of a new mindset. I will work as your guide in providing you the tools you need to live your life more fully.

People seek psychotherapy feeling unhappy or helpless to bring about change in their life or fulfill their dreams. Patients are overcome with symptoms of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse or other problems, which in reality are unconscious defenses, blocking repressed feelings about something that went wrong, often in childhood, which is not yet resolved. These defenses once were adaptive, by protecting and helping them survive, but are no longer effective. I help people work through their underlying grief and face their feelings (sadness, anger, disappointment, yearning, powerlessness) surrounding trauma or loss, enabling them to engage in more free, authentic, satisfying lives.

I enjoy working with individuals who are struggling to become more authentic and present in their lives. Often, they have been marginalized for being "different" from those around them, causing them to deny parts of themselves to "fit in." Many of my clients have experienced emotional, physical, and sexual traumas that caused deep wounds and profound losses. Most find their way to my office after years spent trying to ignore, numb, or avoid the inevitable pain associated with their psychological and emotional wounds. Some also seek my help after more recent disruptions in their lives, such as divorce or immigration.

My approach is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in focus, as it is best supported by research, children and adolescents respond to it very positively, and because I have found it to produce immediate and long-lasting improvements in functioning.

My belief that the therapeutic relationship is the key element of successful treatment informs my practice. This working relationship, based on mutual trust and shared goals, allows for self-exploration and ultimately personal growth. In working with individuals, couples, families and/or groups I think that connecting the dots between past and present allows the client to have a better grasp on what is influencing her/his feelings and life choices leading to greater empowerment and life satisfaction.

In my practice, I combine a scientific approach to therapy in the context of compassion and empathy for my clients. I try to express the Rogerian triad: empathy, congruence, and unconditional, positive regard of my client. Using this foundation, I customize the treatment to the specific needs of the client which are unique. My techniques are drawn from a variety of theoretical positions, primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) supplemented by insights from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Friendship Heights, Washington and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
