In my work with adults, children and teenagers, I focus on their strengths and encourage them to think beyond difficulties and identify achievable goals. I coach parents skills to better communicate with their children and become "safely unpredictable," particularly as many children (if not all) become experts in how to push their parents buttons! I have been told by many of my clients over the past 18 years that my warm and directive, confident approach has been most helpful. Many children and teenagers referred to my practice have been in therapy before, with limited success.

I have been in private practice for thirty years. I work well with families and adolescents. I tend to be more directive and confrontational in my counseling methodology. Having been in the U.S. Marine Corps and combat tested, I work well with those suffering from PTSD. I use cognitive behavioral therapy as I believe it gets to the point and allows one to make signifiant changes quickly. There are two things we do - think and behave. Change the way you think and behave to more positive and we have a positive outcome.

How exhausted are you after having negative thoughts? Then you start feeling guilty for having negative thoughts so you feel even worse than before? Often times you might look to avoid dealing with it by distracting or numbing yourself with substances. Does it ever feel like the pain or addictions are taking control over your life or at the very least making it difficult for you to enjoy current activities? You're not alone. I understand how distressing this feels and will help you find peace and balance once again.

If you have felt the impact of life transitions including anxiety, depression, stress, or relationship and self-esteem issues, therapy can be a beautiful step towards a more fulfilling life. Therapy provides an opportunity to process and explore, in a judgement free space, in order to build upon strengths and identify areas ready for growth and change. As a therapist working in Northern Virginia for nearly a decade, I have provided services to both adolescents and adults, assisting with stressors associated with mental health, family and relationship dynamics, communication struggles, life stage changes, and women's issues.

I have a general practice with individuals, couples,and families. People come with the hope of improving their relationships at home and at work. The effort is on managing their own stress levels, learning about self regulation and reactivity in all of their relationships (examination of daily habits, spiritual life, technology management, etc) People often are requesting assistance in managing life's challenges( illness, death, parenting, premarital, marriage, and stepfamily information). They are interested in becoming the best "self" that they are capable of becoming in relationship to others. The relationships surrounding the client are part of the discussion.

All of us feel times of heightened stress, sadness, and worry. For adolescents, this often comes as they navigate increased independence in a world of school, friends, family, and relationships. For adults in the hectic DC area, work-life balance often doesn’t feel very balanced at all, and many struggle for connection with family and friends. For families, there is often conflict and dissonance that arises as we grow and change. Sometimes this becomes just too much to manage on our own. As a therapist with 13+ years experience, I help clients work through these challenges and grow towards a place of security and connection.

So much can get in the way of feeling close to those we love, and sometimes even to ourselves. All the many stressors we experience can leave us feeling like we don't have much left to give, and our relationships and well-being suffer as a result. But strong bonds with loved ones can be an amazing source of strength and healing.

Most of my clients are seeking insight about how to approach their problems in new ways, to acquire new understandings which enable them to see possibilities that may have been elusive to them without the added input of an experienced therapist.

My approach to treatment is positive, strength-based and collaborative. Working in the psychotherapy field for over 25 years has taught me that the wisdom and capacity to heal lies within each of us, but we often need guidance in learning new tools and coping strategies in order to access this self-healing. Many people seek psychotherapy because they feel overwhelmed and because the emotions they are feeling - sadness, anxiety, anger, shame, have become intolerable. I use Somatic Experiencing and Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy to increase the body's capacity for coping and allow for natural self-healing to take place.

Everyone agrees life gets really hard sometimes, yet many of us grow up believing we should dig deep and tough it out. The fact is, sometimes we need a little guidance. Careers, children, relationships, friends, even exercise all compete for our limited energy and attention. No wonder we sometimes feel so overwhelmed and misunderstood that even loading the dishwasher can lead to a fight. But times of challenge--even those as painful as an affair--also offer us the chance to learn who we are and grow closer to those who matter most to us.
