In my experience of over 30years in clinical practice, I have learned to use a variety of approaches to help people with a broad range of life problems. I began with a grounding in psychoanalytic theory,tempered with an awareness of cultural and socio-economic differences, enhanced by a foundation in medicine. My way of working is to listen carefully to develop an understanding of each person's background, history and world view in order to help that person understand his/her motives, emotions,behavior in order to resolve conflicts and lead a more fulfilled life with more satisfying relationships.

In a non-judgemental, respectful atmosphere I accompany people along their journey to living richer, more meaningful life. I encourage people to broaden their awareness into their thoughts, feelings, reactions and behaviors to identify strengths and whats working and challenges and how they are getting in the way. Recognizing the the mind-body-spirit connection, understanding healthy and antiquated defenses and increasing capacity for feeling a greater range of emotions at a deeper level is an important focus of the psychotherapy process. Identifying feelings, understanding reactions and learning better, more effective means of communicating with others is integral as well.

For over 30 years, I've worked with a wide range of clients to help them identify, understand and address the causes of their distress. Together, we explore the themes and patterns in your life, past and present, that may be interfering with your personal satisfaction and growth. We work to expand your perspective, increase understanding of yourself and your relationships, enhance and develop more effective coping strategies and communication skills. I believe that therapy is most effective in an atmosphere of safety, empathy and collaboration and I strive to foster that through active engagement, openness and flexibility.

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.

Located in downtown Washington, DC, I specialize in queer topics and behavior modification. The clients I enjoy working with the most are children, teens, adults, and families with identities that are often seen as outside of the “typical”: gender-expansive, queer, blended families, and formerly religious. They are seeking a safe space to process challenges, practice acceptance, gain strength, and secure support, without having to explain their identity, family dynamic, or risk be criticized because of it.

I work with clients who are distressed or confused by why they engage in the behaviors they do, whether it's addiction, anger, illegal or anti-social behavior, or relationship difficulties and challenges. I believe this is because my stance is non-judgmental and I genuinely believe that all behavior is rational given past experience, even if it is not helpful or healthy in the present. I work to help clients navigate how these behaviors may have arisen, to develop self-compassion, and then to provide support and strategies to do the hard work of adopting new, more helpful behaviors.
