With 20+ years in the helping professions, I have been both a teacher and social worker in various capacities for many years now. I work especially well with young people... teens, college age, and young professionals; moms who are expectant, new, and experienced; adoptees and their families; LGBTQIA individuals and families; trauma survivors; families and individuals going through separation and divorce. A growing specialty for me is working with people who identify with the Christian faith, who may have had trauma or negative experiences growing up in the church.

We are a group practice comprised of five therapists who offer therapy to children, teens, college students, professionals from all walks of life, expectant mothers and families. Check out our therapist page to see who may be the best fit for you: https://www.dandelionpsychotherapy.com/therapists

Too busy to come in? You don't have to... you can take me with you on your phone or computer! I offer video counseling to residents of Washington, DC and Maryland. Our two offices are conveniently located just steps from the Red Line Tenleytown and Takoma metro stops. Call 202-686-7000 or email hello@dandelionpsychotherapy.com to schedule an appointment!
