Losing a loved one can be the most difficult time in your life. Emotions are often surprising in their strength or mildness. Grief often breaks a person completely from inside out. Grieving is hard work, you can get worn out, and feel battered. It can take a lot longer to work through grief than most people realize. People around you may think it’s helpful for you to not talk or cry or focus on your loss but actually this is just what people need to do. The goal is to not stay stuck, to move through it—and this is part of the process. Grief doesn’t get better by ignoring it and trying to ‘get over it.’

When feelings overwhelm us, it's hard to think through problems. My focus is on the struggles that we all experience at some point in our lives: loneliness, lack of self esteem or meaning, and loss. In working collaboratively, we can understand symptoms of depression and anxiety to alleviate their impact. In time, you will be able to rediscover a sense of confidence and purpose.

*****Very limited availability for new clients; wait list spots available***** I aim to cultivate an atmosphere in therapy that is real and honest - where my clients feel the freedom to cut the crap, not worry about saying the "right" thing, and speak candidly about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, without fear of judgment. The things that we hash through in counseling can be messy, and I deeply appreciate the vulnerability this process requires. I find that a therapeutic relationship like this - one that's safe, comfortable, authentic, and honest - is where so much growth happens.

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.

In therapy, the focus inevitably turns to the balance between self and others. Being responsible for one's own needs while being responsive to others, whether in a relationship, school, or at work is a dynamic, and sometimes confounding, process. How do you find that balance, being true to oneself and a truely caring person? That's the work of therapy. I work with individuals, couples, families, and students. I have a recognized expertise with severe psychological trauma, depression, anxiety, and marital problems including infidelities. I am proud to have been twice highly recommended by Washingtonian Magazine.

People come for psychotherapy when they are hurting or feeling stuck in unproductive thinking and behavior. This can manifest in depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, issues with career and work performance and self deprecating behaviors. Loss, grief and illnesses can be hard to bear and cause feelings of aloneness. What is often needed is a safe environment for the cultivation of acceptance and compassion and the willingness to wisely explore in a trusting relationship. Developing space to have a new understanding of difficulties can open to greater awareness, sense of possibility and the capacity to live more fully.

I am a clinical psychologist working with adults and adolescents in individual psychotherapy. Issues addressed in treatement are wide ranging. Some with which I commonly work include depression, anxiety, grief and loss and relationship problems. By training, I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist: I understand our thoughts and feelings as being governed by our environment, our relationships, and also by psychological dynamics that we have internalized as early as our childhood. These dynamics color and at times shape our relationships and experiences. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a means to change these dynamics when they have led to maladaptive patterns.
