"Feeling heard -- with thoughtfulness and curiosity -- and being challenged, helps you develop insight and strategies for life changes. Patients tell me they appreciate the rewards of our collaborative process, and their relationships and careers often show the benefits. Together, we will explore your life, deciphering your questions and building upon your strengths. We will look at problematic behaviors and patterns, identify blockages to your goals, and work together to achieve happiness and success. In addition to relationship issues and mood disorders, I was voted as one of the areas' best therapists in a recent Washingtonian Magazine."

"Life's not going how you want? When I first went into therapy, I thought I was going to find out terrible things about myself. What I discovered was that I was simply a human being. I mention this so you will know that working with me is not a blame game but an exploration of what is working well in your life, and what is not. Then together we develop strategies for you to create the life you want."

In my work, I help people develop the skills they need to let go of pain, to pursue their goals, to strengthen relationships, and to live fully.

"All relationships have their difficult times. When partners come to a counselor, they often feel worried and discouraged, hoping that things can change in a positive way. Helping couples to strengthen their relationship, develop more effective ways of communicating and finding greater satisfaction are goals of our work together. Sometimes, partners are trying to decide if their relationship can be saved. We work together to discern the level of commitment each partner has to staying in the relationship. If there is a decision that this is not sustainable, we develop ways of separating that are constructive for all involved."

"Often we wait until we have exhausted every measure before we seek professional help. You can start on your journey to healing, reconciliation, peace, and joy today. I believe that in times of adversity and struggle, we have the greatest potential for growth. It is often hard to see clearly how the difficulties we face will lead to positive changes, so instead we lose our way and get stuck in places of frustration, despair, and resentment. The change process is a journey-sometimes long and at times short. It is a process that gives us the opportunity to discover new ways of approaching our circumstances."
