I am a child, adolescent and adult psychoanalyst.
In addition to my work with creative and ambitious adults, I work with young children and adolescents to increase harmony, pleasure and satisfaction in life. I treat people who are underachieving in work or school despite clear talent; overachieving in work or school yet at a high price; people who are highly anxious; people who feel hopeless about change; people who are trying to achieve greatness in sports or career; and people who know they deserve so much more but for whom it feels elusive. Let's strengthen your capacity to hear yourself better so your relationships and creativity can continue to flourish.

I have expertise in child/ adolescent psychology, neuropsychology and culturally-contextualized approaches, as well.
My focus is on helping children, adolescents, adults and couples develop effective and meaningful approaches to living fulfilling lives. I provide a person-centered environment combined with evidence-based understandings of emotion, cognition and behavior to effectively address life's challenges. I have worked in hospitals, clinics, schools, and universities with diverse populations and recognize how attachment histories, problematic thoughts, feelings and actions, and traumatic events are related to concerns like sadness, worry, relationship or health difficulties, and developing a sense of identity.

Much of my work has focused on family and relationship conflicts, young adult life transitions, and traumatic experiences, such as domestic violence and child and adolescent sexual assault.
The decision to seek therapy takes courage. I aim to provide a non-judgmental space that allows you to feel comfortable and understood. The best outcome in therapy comes from a trusting and collaborative relationship between the therapist and you. In my work, one of the main outcomes is for you to appreciate your strengths, how you have used your strengths to overcome previous challenges, and how you can use them to face current and future situations.

You may be: a teenager confronting challenges such as anxiety, depression, peer comparison, gender identity or sexual orientation; a family that needs support with general discord, crisis, estranged spouses or LGBTQIA challenges; or a woman feeling stuck or lost, managing anxiety or depression post-college, or during pregnancy, postpartum or infertility.
If you’re considering therapy, you may be in a time of stress or transition. My goal is to ease your access to psychotherapy by providing you or your family with confidential online therapy, from the comfort of your own home. While I work with clients of all ages in any stage of life, my specialties include teen and family LGBTQIA issues, prenatal/postpartum challenges and working with women who feel “stuck.”

As a licensed psychologist, I provide individual therapy to adolescent and adult clients looking to better understand themselves and their relationships. People often seek therapy to address symptoms or problems that they want to change, but ironically, this felt need for things to be different can often create more stress. I believe people are more than their problems, and so my aim is to create a safe, nonjudgmental space to explore the connections between your past experience, relational patterns, and current behaviors to help you a achieve a meaningful sense of self-awareness, thereby giving you more freedom and choice.

Have you, or your teenager , felt overwhelmed by anxiety? Are persistent feelings of sadness interfering with your ability to function at work, in school, or at home? Do you have difficulty getting sleep or do you feel nervous all of the time? Many of us are challenged by emotions that we have difficulty handling. In therapy, you can expect me to bring the best tools to meet your needs, building your coping skills, and improving your ability to manage those difficult emotions. If you experienced trauma in the past, I can help you understand the effects of that trauma on your life and help you function in your everyday life.

I am eager to walk on the journey to freedom with you, your child, or your teen .
Beyond fear and anxiety is FREEDOM. As a counselor, I believe we all desire to be seen, known, and understood, and I aim to create a space where individuals experience just that, freedom. I believe understanding all thoughts can be life changing. So, we'll work on helping you consider whether your assumptions are true and make the tweaks that help you go for the life you want. Perhaps you'll learn that you are just as deserving of the life you want as every other person out there.

Upon entering each new developmental phase of our lives, there is often a momentary pause, an unsettling of the ship as we adjust to new demands, challenges and desires (and this is true no matter our age). Perhaps the Terrible Twos, Tween or Teen years have hit? Could it be that your child is struggling at school and you'd like to support him or her to feel better and have more success? Maybe you are an adult who is feeling overwhelmed by stress and the demands of life. These moments are great opportunities for growth and I believe I can help.

While the treatment needs for each adult, adolescent or child may be different, the goal is the same; that is, to understand better the meaning of one's thoughts, feelings and behaviors and through understanding, a chance for more lasting happiness and satisfaction in work, school, friendships and intimate relationships.
I have been in practice for over 20 years, working with adults, children and adolescents in psychodynamic therapy and psychoanalysis. The frequency and duration of each treatment depends on the unique needs of every person; for example, a college student may be seeking short-term therapy to deal with the transition from home to school or an adult may be seeking longer term treatment to understand a pattern of failed relationships. Children are often referred by family members or school counselors, who provide valuable background information to help determine the best treatment. Ongoing collaboration with parents and professionals is essential.

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.

Is your Child or Teen having problems with anxiety, depression, or self-esteem issues? Is your family having significant parent-child conflict? I want to help you & your family achieve a healthier life. Adolescents and young adults have unique challenges that can be difficult to navigate. During these critical periods in life, many may face peer issues, family conflict, self-esteem difficulty, parent-child conflict, and difficulty with transitions (e.g., high school to college; college to career).

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 Washington and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
