Waitlist for new clients
I am currently operating on a short waitlist. New clients could expect to begin working together beginning mid-February 2022. Located in NoMa, Washington, DC, I specialize in gender and queer topics. The clients I enjoy working with the most are teens, adults, couples, 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.

I hold a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Duquesne University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in LGBTQ Healthcare.
Psychotherapy can help you make sense of complicated feelings, gain insight into relational patterns, and begin to move forward in areas of your life where you feel stuck. My focus is to help you untangle struggles, set meaningful goals, revise problematic narratives about yourself, and re-orient you toward your values. My integrative approach is informed by psychodynamic, feminist, multicultural, relational, and behaviorist theories. Above all, I value the therapeutic relationship and your personal growth.

My primary focus is on helping couples and individuals with sexual issues. In working with couples, I find dissatisfaction with partnered sex is often linked to deeper relationship difficulties and the two can be intertwined. In other instances, the therapeutic focus is primarily on enhancing technique and increasing desire rather than improving the relationship. I also work individually with women to eliminate barriers to sexual wellness and increase acceptance. I enjoy working with gay, lesbian, and heterosexual clients and have respect for sexual fluidity and variance in erotic interest.

I have a special interest in working with LGBTQ individuals, those dealing with adjusting to a new a culture, and individuals for whom cultural differences create challenges in family relationships.
Feeling different? Do you have a sense that people don’t get you? Do you travel a different path than everybody else? Are you living your life very differently from what other people expect you to? Life can be tough when you feel different. Different can also mean isolated, lonely, and misunderstood. But you can be different and still fit in. That's where I can help.

In a world full of judgment, you need to trust that your therapist is affirming and ready to hear your "deep, dark secrets." With that, you can then talk about what's really going on and address your true concerns. I have experience helping people with all kinds of issues, including relationships, sex and sexuality, addictions, gender identity, physical/emotional/sexual abuse, as well as general questions of self-worth. Together, we will explore any issue that is important to you. We will discuss your past when relevant, and what you're currently thinking and feeling.

I treat individuals and couples who present with a range of needs, from debilitating eating disorders to mild anxiety and to issues that cannot be described in five words or less. I see the whole person rather than a group of symptoms with the recognition that people are complex and that most of us have difficulties in one or more areas of our lives. I work to help people become more integrated which, I believe, helps them lead more fulfilling lives. Life isn't so easy sometimes, but through insight change is possible.

MY PRACTICE IS FULL AT THE MOMENT - NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. I believe that in order to make changes in our lives we need to start by looking at our relationship to ourselves, to the world and to people in it. Some of our patterns of relating were set in motion long before we had any awareness of or language for our emotions. In my practice I have found that a compassionate, respectful and mutually trusting approach can lead to meaningful change and ultimately a more authentic and fulfilling life.

At its core, therapy is a conversation. Like a greenhouse, this specially crafted conversation we call “therapy” aims to nurture and ripen our words, thoughts, images, emotions, and sensations, all "vitals" of the mind, so that they can become useful in our growth journey, both inside and outside the therapy room. Within the protective bounds of therapy, we find a rare space to talk, enhanced by the luxury of time and undivided attention, an array of choices, the chance for “multiple takes,” and a pause button. It is also in this space where the invitation to discover our innermost self or play a completely new role lives.
