I view therapy as a process that can facilitate healing and change, as well as understanding and fulfillment. Whether stuck in a conflicted relationship, feeling lost, struggling with depression or anxiety, adjusting to a transition or life change, feeling unable to break unhealthy patterns or resolve past issues and pain, it can be difficult to know where to start. Together, we can explore the issues you face and identify the direction you want your life to take and the steps needed to get you there. Once established, our relationship can provide the foundation and safety for this process.

There are times that you might feel stuck in patterns that make life feel unsatisfying and empty. Maybe you feel depressed, anxious or in chronic pain. You may be negotiating a relationship or trying to adjust to a new job.

My approach is collaborative, thus giving you the space to reflect carefully. I work with you to develop better coping skills and help you to understand & manage complex feelings of anxiety or sadness.

Got COVID stress? Or were you feeling stressed and anxious before the pandemic? If you live or work in the DC area, you are very familiar with stress. Chances are your work-life balance isn't at all balanced. Maybe you are a perfectionist always trying to do more. Maybe you are a people pleaser who struggles to say "No". Meaningful pursuits such as fulfilling relationships, personal interests and staying healthy are harder to navigate because now you have to stay home. All these factors can intensify your level of stress and anxiety.
