In my experience of over 30years in clinical practice, I have learned to use a variety of approaches to help people with a broad range of life problems. I began with a grounding in psychoanalytic theory,tempered with an awareness of cultural and socio-economic differences, enhanced by a foundation in medicine. My way of working is to listen carefully to develop an understanding of each person's background, history and world view in order to help that person understand his/her motives, emotions,behavior in order to resolve conflicts and lead a more fulfilled life with more satisfying relationships.

Located in downtown Washington, DC, I specialize in queer topics and behavior modification. The clients I enjoy working with the most are children, teens, adults, and families with identities that are often seen as outside of the “typical”: gender-expansive, queer, blended families, and formerly religious. They are seeking a safe space to process challenges, practice acceptance, gain strength, and secure support, without having to explain their identity, family dynamic, or risk be criticized because of it.

Life is challenging and at times we need geniune help to grow to our fullest potential. As a clinical psychologist, it is my passion to help individuals discover what keeps them from obtaining their life goals. Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, divorce, and/or basic growing pains can negatively impact one's life. My practice is centered around breaking down the barriers that impede on life success, and learning real strategies to combat future difficulties. In addition to traditional therapy, I also provide parenting coordination for parents looking for alternative ways to address co-parenting difficulties.

The symptoms and other problems that bring us to therapy are some of the worst happenings of life, ones we'd naturally prefer to get rid of. With a therapist's help, however, our symptoms can also become an opening to a new way of living, even an opportunity for a new beginning. Our symptoms ask us to seek help with the hope that we may learn to better help ourselves. With proper support we may come to see that our symptoms and difficulties were the first steps of a healing journey, the first sparks of a lifelong process of learning.

I use a warm, integrative approach to help change behaviors and identify patterns that prevent clients from living the way they want. We might start by targeting your day-to-day challenges, exploring the relationship between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to open a path to change. The next step is often to work backwards, seeking insight and acceptance of past experiences that can impact our adult lives in ways we do not recognize. My clients struggle with a wide range of issues like anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and self-criticism, perfectionism, issues with food and body image, and unsatisfying relationships.

No matter your past or present, your haves or have nots, life can be difficult. I believe that people want and need to be understood – to feel validated and acknowledged in the midst of their troubles. Without these moments of understanding, life can feel mundane, lonely, or deeply confusing. At the most troubling times when stress, depression, or relationships overwhelm, change can seem impossible. Yet change is made possible through a trusting therapeutic relationship, and a careful understanding of oneself and others.

I believe each individual is the expert on his or her life and experiences. As a therapist, it is my goal to tap into that and add my own skills, insights and techniques that have helped many others. Working together, we can find solutions to the problems or situations causing stress. I find that, for most of my clients, therapy is a short-term need. You can then use your new skills in similar situations that arise in the future. My goal is to have you leave therapy with a range of tools that work for you.
