In a non-judgemental, respectful atmosphere I accompany people along their journey to living richer, more meaningful life. I encourage people to broaden their awareness into their thoughts, feelings, reactions and behaviors to identify strengths and whats working and challenges and how they are getting in the way. Recognizing the the mind-body-spirit connection, understanding healthy and antiquated defenses and increasing capacity for feeling a greater range of emotions at a deeper level is an important focus of the psychotherapy process. Identifying feelings, understanding reactions and learning better, more effective means of communicating with others is integral as well.

Why does it seem that the punishment never fits the crime!? Why do mundane matters lead into an argument with my partner or my child? Why are they always over-reacting? Why am I over-reacting!? How come we end up in this ongoing cycle? What will it take to finally feel understood in this relationship? Can I ever regain their trust? If you ever asked any of the above questions you need MORE than just counseling, you need therapy. WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE? Counseling are tips, techniques, and tools for immediate relief. They are helpful, but only serve as a "bandaid" on your relationship. You deserve deeper healing...

2020 has been a tough year as we face this challenging time in our history. We’ve had to grapple with the longevity of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and the uncertainty it brings. Challenges, which are further confounded by a complicated and divisive political climate make this a time of grief, trauma, loss, and difficult transitions for many. Physical distancing measures, forced adoption of new technology, and disruption of our routines, though necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19, bring additional struggles with preventing isolation, remaining engaged with social supports, and coping with stress and anxiety. Please talk with a provider if you are finding yourself overwhelmed or if you are experiencing changes in sleeping, eating, or irritability, whether or not your challenges can be explained by current situations We have immediate openings for therapy and medication management appointments.

Many challenges in life can feel like they are uniquely yours to bear alone; however, this is rarely the case. People visit me concerned about how they feel and function in key life and professional relationships. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families on a variety of overlapping issues such as anxiety and depression, self-esteem, parenting children with special needs, setting limits with adult children, work/life balance issues, and sexual desire issues in committed relationships. Often these issues can be helped by addressing the common denominator of individual development within a family or relationship system.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Silver Spring using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
