I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor and work together with you to develop a treatment which incorporates your strengths, needs, and life's experiences. I also respect your wish to work on a specific area of concern short-term and/or to address a variety of complex issues over time. During the treatment, my clients report that they feel safe, supported, and challenged by me and that their lives are greatly enriched by the experience (see Healthgrades reviews by clients)."

"Often the circumstances that bring a person into therapy feel monumental and shameful. Other times the reasons for seeking therapy are unclear or hard to identify. Regardless of magnitude, life's struggles matter. They are real, and, because we are human, they are complicated. The relationship my patient and I build is the most important aspect determining the effectiveness of the therapy we do. When it feels restorative, shared, and caring, the relationship provides a uniquely valuable context in which we can take on struggles and uncertainties together, while we learn about the patient's individual needs, values, and difficulties."

"I've served patients in the Washington, D.C. area for nearly four decades, helping men, women and couples resolve conflicts arising from the many changes and transitions they experience -- especially during the "middle years" of adulthood, from one's 30s onward. My holistic perspective integrates psychoanalytic understanding of developmental origins of conflicts with recognizing how social, cultural, gender and career experiences shape our view of ourselves - including our emotional troubles; feelings of limitations about change; our values. All can impede our capacities for positive, loving relationships, growing hidden dimensions of our personalities; and achieving success and meaning in work."

"When I see a new patient for the first time, I try to assess what he or she wants from life or from what each person is struggling. I do this with individuals or parents so together so we can determine what is best for him or her or their child at the current time. Sometimes people want to work on one problem and then develop a curiosity about how their minds work. Often in those situations, I work more intensely and more frequency to search for what is meaning to people and how they wants to navigate in the world in a freer way."

"As a therapist I provide support, feedback, and space to be heard in order to help you address the challenges in your life. Much of my job is to help you think about yourself and your problems in a new way, so that you can get "unstuck". I use a trauma-based approach which acknowledges that we have all had difficult experiences in our lives. Instead of asking "what is wrong with you?" we explore "what has happened in your life?". In this way you have the opportunity to learn more about yourself and be empowered in your continued growth."
