Life is full of challenges and sometimes we can get support from friends and family but often that comes with well intentioned but sometimes unsolicited advice or you need to choose what you say or not say in order to protect loved ones feelings. Sometimes you want and need to externalize your thoughts and feelings without having to filter them. I offer adult therapy that is strengths based and solution focused in a warm environment. I can help you identify the root causes of your struggles and implement changes so you feel more content. I also offer parenting work that strengthens parents skill sets.

I accept new patients for Parent -Child Interaction Therapy.
The challenges of early childhood are sometimes overlooked. Common, age appropriate behaviors could be quite difficult to deal with. Moreover, when a child presents highly disruptive and even destructive behaviors, parents may experience helplessness, anxiety and even shame. Loving and caring parents may try to do all the right things and a child might still show signs of struggle. In these days of social distancing and ‘remote learning’, many of our support systems are not available as we wish. In these conditions, managing difficult behaviors could become like another full time job and increase levels of distress in the family.

Welcome. My practice focuses on supporting clients with difficulties that arise as they adjust to pregnancy, birth and parenting . I have a special interest in the communication and emotional needs of infants and toddlers and in helping parents who are struggling to enjoy their relationships with their young children. I also enjoy working with issues unrelated to parenting , including depression, anxiety, trauma, difficulties with transitions or problems in relationships, as well as working with people who would like space to think about who they are, what experiences have shaped them and how they want to live life going forward.

for over 25 years and bring a very personal understanding to the struggles of identity, parenting , and the martial relationship.
There are few things more painful than feeling isolated and alone. Many people enter therapy because they are feeling alone, disconnected and their relationships are suffering. I see therapy as a place where you can feel truly heard, seen, and understood and it is in this safe place that you can begin to make more satisfying and effective life decisions. I work with people to help them understand the unconscious role they may be playing in life decisions and to develop a life of confidence and joy. I work with adults, couples, and families around issues of depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and addictions.

Parenting a young child can be incredibly joyful but also stressful.
I help parents who are struggling with challenges with their young child (0-6 years) around any number of issues, including: sleep, feeding, potty learning, cooperation, getting through daily routines, discipline, challenges functioning in a group setting, developing positive peer relationships, learning to develop self-regulation, and managing sibling rivalry. I help parents understand what makes their child tick and how to meet their needs, especially when it comes to how to discipline using positive, not punitive approaches.

I've learned volumes about parenting from my own children, though no lesson is learned soon enough.
I work with individuals and couples, as well as children, in both DC and Chapel Hill. I do best with adults who are educated or reflective: many are scientists, artists, health and business professionals, or psychotherapists, and some are not pursuing conventional achievement.Some see me for family or work problems, some for help dealing with a chronic health issue or a loss, some to change longstanding emotional and interpersonal patterns involving anxiety, anger, or intimacy. We may try quick and simple approaches first, because sometimes they work, but if not we can go more deeply into the individual's unique personal narrative.
