Would you like to make a change for the better in your life? Life presents each of us with daily challenges, perhaps in the form of circumstances beyond our control - the loss of a loved one, sudden unemployment, failing health. Or, our difficulties arise from within - anxieties, depression, anger, addictions. My approach is empathic, client centered and solution-focused. One's ability to navigate mindfully through stressful situations is key to living a more joyful life. I believe we each have the power to live happier lives through conscious choices and practical actions. For 25 years, I have worked as a therapist and coach, assisting many people find relief from non-productive anxiety and discover their authentic voice.

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.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Friendship Heights, Washington anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Friendship Heights, Washington.
