I work with individuals, children and families, seniors , and organizations providing bereavement, illness, and anticipatory grief counseling for the death or loss of a pet or companion animal in Washington, DC.
The DC area is home to so many people deeply connected to their pets and companion animals. But what happens when your pet is terminally ill, dies, or goes missing and is never found? What emotional support is available to help you manage these painful and intense feelings? I provide support for people going through this devastating and disorienting experience. Having gone through this experience myself, I understand how incredibly painful and difficult it feels. I am here to help you to honor your pet, process your grief, develop new routines, and take steps towards healing. I also provide grief coaching services.

I strive to help adults and seniors achieve balance through therapy. Through my experience of working with adults and seniors , I am aware of the unique challenges that they encounter during this stage of life. In my practice, I focus on one's strengths and I help clients to recognize their own distinct set of coping skills to live the good quality of life that they deserve to live. I provide Telehealth via Zoom to allow the client to receive support in the comfort and safety of their own home.

In addition to psychotherapy, I also provide eldercare consultations for seniors and families to assist them in identifying community resources and planning for future needs.
My approach to therapy is client-centered, collaborative and compassionate. I work with my clients to help them address the inevitable challenges life brings our way and to help them find the path to recovery, renewal and resilience to empower them to meet the next challenge that they meet on the road of life. I strive to understand each client's very personal story and to support them on their unique journey. I have worked extensively with older adults and adult children who are coping with aging issues in the family.

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, or stress? Just about everyone experiences difficult times in their lives. Sometimes these are temporary, such as during or after a life transition, and sometimes these are more chronic where we become stuck. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, work or school concerns, or something else, I imagine you are seeking help because you are not feeling the way you wish to feel. I also imagine that you have hope that it can get better. I utilize evidence-based therapies (such as CBT) with my clients to help them make positive changes.

In my work with individuals I view the relationship between patient and therapist as central to treatment. The need for trust, privacy, safety, and non-judgmental acceptance is fundamental to the success of treatment. My theoretical orientation is psychodynamic or psychoanalytic, though I rely on an eclectic range of ideas for understanding each person. Patients experience my approach as insight-oriented, dynamic, and interactive. When a person seeks therapy it is because something hurts - a broken relationship, past or present, or deep frustrations with the self - not being able to live up to one's ideals or accomplish goals.

My clinical expertise is in issues related to emotional regulation, trauma, loss, and early life attachment experiences. I have a particular interest in supporting parents of young children (particularly at this time and in relationship to COVID-related school and care transitions). My approach can broadly be described as insight oriented and rooted in attachment, relational, and interpersonal theories as well as self-psychology. My expertise rests on meaningful personal experiences and on continuing rigorous training and teaching.

(Finding a therapist is difficult - I hope that can end here!) Open-minded collaboration and simple trust are my keys to successful therapy. Combining your preferences and self-knowledge with my research-proven techniques, down-to-earth style, and touch of lightness, our work together should be both rewarding and bottom-line effective for you. I employ cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and traditional talk treatments alongside physiology and anthropology. Since therapy is an art and a young science, we will use the science as much as possible while making certain to think outside of the box for your unique situation.

In my practice I am guided by the belief that change is possible and that every person has the capacity for healthy growth and development but may at times need help in accessing inner resources for positive change. I believe a therapist-client relationship that is characterized by empathy, curiosity, acceptance and caring is what facilitates the therapeutic process. I aim to provide an environment where my clients feel safe and free to explore their feelings, thoughts, needs and goals - an environment where we can work together at understanding what is keeping them from living a more fulfilling life.

A great counselor is someone who embodies patience, empathy, emotional regard and respect for others. When working with a therapist, you do not have to face these challenges alone. Coming into my office allows a person to have the support they need to make. Despite age, I enjoy working with clients from different walks of life looking to take control of their lives and focus on the things that make them happy. I focus on building rapport so clients are comfortable coming through the door. I not only want to know how I can help you and the concerns you present, but I am also invested in knowing who YOU are as a person.

Are you overly anxious about Covid 19? Feeling stuck in life? Are you dealing with dueling priorities, such as caring for aging parents and maintaining stability in your life? Many of life's challenges are predictable, but the timing of the events are not. I look to facilitate healthy responses and interpretations to life's events that are discovered during our sessions. I will assist you through life's challenges in a safe non judgmental therapeutic space. I practice cognitive behavioral therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to facilitate progress in areas of concern identified in therapy.

Seeking therapy is no easy feat and I commend you for taking the leap! My goal as a therapist is to validate experiences, provide nonjudgmental support, and guide clients in building their map to navigate life’s journey through these challenges. If you feel like your life is spiraling out of control and there is no-one to turn to; maybe you've been struggling in your peer, familial, and/or romantic relationships, maybe you're processing grief, or maybe you've just received a new chronic illness diagnosis and are having trouble coping; no matter the stressor, you've come to the right place.

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.

The pandemic has challenged our connection to those we love, to finding and sustaining new friendships, to our sense of belonging. For some of us, depression and anxiety are affecting us as never before. How can we get our needs met during this time of uncertainty? I believe that together we can make a plan to live our best possible life, keeping hope in our hearts, connecting with our loved ones, adapting and adjusting to this new world.
