I’m also skilled in comorbidity / substance abuse issues which often accompany these conditions.
I am a DC native and LPC now taking clients. I see clients with a wide array of mood/emotional/behavioral concerns. I often work with clients grappling with major depressive disorder and anxiety. This is where I have found I am most helpful. Creating a trusting therapeutic relationship with clients is critical to my work and theirs, as we establish goals and identify and challenge negative thinking that stalls real progress. Progress comes through mitigating the severity of symptoms as well as restoring the client to a healthy baseline mood where one's sense of purpose and self -image are restored.

Sex & porn addiction (CSAT), affair recovery, sexuality issues, internet addiction , and substance addiction (CMAT) are my specialties. I also work with trauma/PTSD (EMDR), depression and anxiety.

If they're open to it, I often give my clients specific handouts or homework to do during the week. I don't believe in forcing the client to do something that isn't working. I begin where you are.

I work with clients on issues such as anxiety and OCD, depression, chronic pain, relationship difficulties, substance use, insomnia, health anxiety/health-related concerns, and navigating life transitions.
My goal is to help clients live a full and meaningful life by coping well with stress. I integrate a flexible, person-centered approach with evidence-based practices. Specifically, I collaboratively and non-judgmentally work with clients to identify values and strengths. Together, we explore how to “open up” to difficult thoughts and emotions in order to create a more satisfying life. I use evidence-based therapies and skills, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), as well as mindfulness/relaxation-based and trauma-informed approaches.

Some of my specific specialties are Trauma, PTSD, Depression; Bi-Polar D/O; Bullying, Addiction , and Adolescent/ Parenting Issues.
My therapeutic viewpoint is that all clients can change if they have a supportive therapist in a therapeutic environment that is conducive to change. Additionally, they must have the desire to change, set goals, and work on the skills needed outside of the counseling session to create lasting change.

My background is in mental health, trauma and addiction .
Many of us are looking outside ourselves for love, fulfillment and joy only to find ourselves deeply dissatisfied, lonely and separated from connection and intimacy with others and ourselves. Life can be difficult and is filled with challenges and traumatic experiences that require our attention and care in order to heal. We are skilled at silencing the aching inside via escape hatches: excessive shopping, over/under eating, using drugs or alcohol, sex, gambling, gaming, etc. I believe the therapeutic relationship can offer support as we move into freedom by learning to live in the present moment with all life has to offer.

People of all backgrounds should be able to get the help they need without fear of microaggressions or further oppression by the therapist.

As a sexual health psychotherapist, I treat what is commonly labeled as "sexual addiction " or "compulsive sexual behavior" as a problem of competing motivations - men wanting to both stop and continue their sexual behavior despite harmful consequences.
How do you know if your sexual behavior is out of control? It's a subjective question that many men unfortunately wait until relationship, occupational or medical consequences accumulate before considering. I believe the most important person to evaluate concerns with regulating sexual behavior is the man experiencing the dilemma. I start with two basic questions: "What is your conflict with your sexual behavior?" and "What is your vision for your sexual health?" Since 2001, I have provided a safe, informed and confidential space for sexual health conversations with heterosexual, gay and bisexual men.

I work with clients from a wide variety of backgrounds, who have all come to a shared realization: that their way of living is no longer working for them. Whether they are struggling with addiction or depression or find themselves experiencing relationship difficulties, they all aspire to something new; something more. Together we identify the nature of their particular dissatisfaction, discover how they got there, and develop a more desirable and sustainable reality. I believe that my role is to be a nonjudgmental companion to my clients on their unique journey of self-discovery and profound change.
