Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. Life can be overwhelming at times and it can feel as if you are not properly equipped to handle the difficulties you have to face. I believe that we all try to do the right thing, but sometimes old habits persist, unwanted feelings intrude, and we can feel like we are doing it all alone. If you choose to explore working with me, I hope to encourage your natural curiosity about your life, your relationships, and your current circumstances. I hope to encourage connections that lead you towards lasting change.

In my years of working with diverse populations, I've learned what we all have in common is difficulty at times with the human experience. Whether it's a mood disorder or debilitating anxiety or addiction, we suffer and need help at these times. From identity issues to discomfort in one's own skin, we know when we're not living fully. Our innate resilience and joy become buried under layers of defenses, but they're still there. Let's uncover them together. For your busy schedule and convenience, I offer evenings and weekend sessions.

My adult and adolescent clients make rapid progress and love working with me because I use a combination of CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), warmth, and humor. I focus on solutions, not just problems, and am very successful at helping clients with anxiety and depression. Since I'm also a school counselor, I am highly skilled with young adults that have academic, executive functioning, and social/relationship issues. I check in frequently with all my clients to make sure I am meeting their needs and expectations. After all, therapy is an important investment. I want people to get their money's worth!

Individuals can get stuck and couples often bicker over seemingly small stuff. The easy solutions don't work. Why? In many cases, those petty problems are tethered to larger meanings for the individuals. The real solutions need to address these deeper issues. I provide a place where individuals and couples can safely explore and clarify -- what's really going on here? With both individuals and couples, I encourage people to look inward -- how am I contributing to this impasse? How is this related to my history? And importantly, what can we do about it now?

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Takoma Park 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.
