Let's Connect (202) 733-6585
I am an experienced clinical psychologist with a PhD from UNC, a Masters degree in child/human development from Harvard. and past experience in the education field. In 25 years of clinical work, I've collaborated with a wide range of individuals and families in their efforts to make positive changes or adjust to life transitions, losses, and trauma. My services are tailored to the specific needs of clients and involve assessment, joint development of goals and plans, and use of best practice approaches to achieve their goals. I provide individual, couples, and family therapy as well as parent consultation.
I have a systems perspective and often encourage the inclusion of family and other significant persons to work as a team in support of change. I find cognitive-behavioral, relational, solution-focused, and parent-child interaction therapy techniques to be appropriate and effective with many clients. My assessment services include intellectual testing and ADHD evaluation.
Many people have uncertainties and questions about seeking psychological services. To explore whether my services might be useful for you, please call to arrange an initial consultation. My office is conveniently located across from the Tenleytown subway station and bus stops and also has street parking available.
