Are you a professional in the DC metro area, thriving in some areas of your life, but feeling "stuck" or "in the dark" in others? Are you grappling with a recent loss, a major decision or life transition, trauma, grief/loss, or symptoms related to anxiety or depression? Do you want more for your life, your career, your relationships? Sometimes the things that happen to us can lead to negative beliefs about our selves/our world-- which seem to get in the way of living the lives we've always wanted. I can help you untangle these beliefs.

What do you hope to gain from seeking therapy? Do you want quality service where you work together with an experienced clinician on a plan to help you reduce your mental health symptoms and live your best life ever-not just someone asking you each week "how are you doing today?"... or someone who wants you to "find your own way..." Maybe you are someone who values your privacy to the point where you do not want your employer/HR dept/insurance to know you are getting services? Whether you are in one or the other, or both categories, I am the clinician for you. I am experienced, outcome driven, value your privacy and nonjudgmental.

We all experience ups and downs in our life. At times, though, our challenges become overwhelming and difficult to manage alone. Unresolved trauma may be affecting your overall mental and physical wellness. Or, you may be struggling with relationship and marital challenges; facing difficult life transitions; or dealing with symptoms related to anxiety or depression. It is important to know, however, that you are resilient and you have ability to heal, improve self-awareness, and make healthier and positive changes in your life.

Welcome. At various times in our lives we all end up feeling sad, angry, anxious, or lost. Sometimes we end up in unhealthy patterns: doubting our self-worth, obsessing about the past or the future, lashing out at others, or isolating ourselves. So many of our unhelpful behaviors protect us in the short-term, but leave long-term costs. I'm a clinical social worker and I provide help with these and other issues. The core of my training has been to meet you where you are--mentally and emotionally--and help you find effective techniques to overcome adversity, feel better, and move on with your life.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Bethesda or for a Bethesda EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
