Are you worried about your daughter? Have you noticed a change in her behavior patterns? Has she lost interest in doing the things she usually enjoys? Is she acting out in ways you don't undersand? Has she turned your household upside-down? If you are finding it hard to understand your teen or college-age daughter, I can help. I help teens and young women to increase their self-esteem, improve their body image, and make positive changes in their relationships. I also offer support to parents to help implement lasting changes for the whole family.

I am the director of a growing group practice comprised of therapists who provide compassionate counseling to meet the diverse needs of busy Washington, DC families raising children. We love supporting our clients via our team approach, throughout the lifespan of the family.

Too busy to come in? You don't have to... you can take me with you on your phone or computer! I offer text-based and video counseling to residents of Washington, DC and Maryland independently as well as through the Talkspace platform. Our office is conveniently located just steps from the Red Line AU/Tenleytown metro station in NW DC.
