Recently voted "Reader's Pick, Best Family Therapist" 2014 in Bethesda Magazine, I believe the therapeutic relationship (between client and psychotherapist) is the most important element in the interpersonal and relational interventions of therapy. My goal is to meet you where you are, and to help you get to where you want to be: as an individual, a couple, and/or as a family.

Life may be harder than you expected. You may feel stressed, depressed, or anxious. You may be struggling with a decision. Relationships with your family are complex. You may want to improve communication with your partner. Parenting is tough. You may have suffered a loss, & you don't know why it still affects you. You may have put a dream on hold while you attended to family matters, & now you wonder if you are still capable of fulfilling that dream. You may feel you have been given gifts, but you aren't using them to their full potential.

Through individual, family, and play therapy, you and your family can feel healthy, empowered, and connected.
Among families, kids, adults, and couples alike, feeling healthy, happy, connected, and confident can be hard. For so many people and families today, the pressures of the world, fast changes in life, and challenging or traumatic experiences interrupt the connections we wish to have. Maybe for you or your family, this means more and more conflicts, feeling alone and unsupported, being unsure how to make things better, or not knowing what you want or need. Whether you feel lost and disconnected, frustrated, overwhelmed, angry, scared, or lonely, there are ways to restore your feelings of connection, purpose, confidence, and direction.

My specialized training in family systems theory and practice enables me to help people not only problem-solve specific issues but to do so with an understanding of the context in which they manifest themselves; be they associated with one's family of origin, relationships, work or some other source.
Utilizing a competency-based approach, I assist my clients to reframe how they perceive the issues in their lives; to work through emotional conflict and learn new behaviors to manage and enrich their experience. My style is direct, compassionate and interactive. Having begun my career as a teacher and having raised four children, I have an intimate knowledge of child development and educational needs. Through thirty years of practice and specialized training, I have expanded my background to include personal coaching, couples/family counseling, addictions recovery, men's health and management of chronic conditions such as mental illness and cancer.
