Are you a professional in the DC metro area, thriving in some areas of your life, but feeling "stuck" or "in the dark" in others? Are you grappling with a recent loss, a major decision or life transition, trauma, grief/loss, or symptoms related to anxiety or depression? Do you want more for your life, your career, your relationships? Sometimes the things that happen to us can lead to negative beliefs about our selves/our world-- which seem to get in the way of living the lives we've always wanted. I can help you untangle these beliefs.

Self esteem issues, body image problems, self worth are all originating from early problems that were never addressed. By going to the core of the problem, we can fix the problem that keeps on weighing on the individual and help them find a solution. Digging deep is somewhat needed to understand where it all came from and find a treatment plan to allow the person to let go of the negative and focus on the positive. It is crucial to keep an open communication module between client and therapist so we can both find the best alternative plan that will fit the client needs. I cover all groups, all ethnicity, all races in all my groups.

Life happens! At some point in our lives we are faced with challenges that effect us personally or professionally. Sometimes we have people we can talk to about these minor set backs. Other times, we wish there was someone we could talk to, honestly, about the most troubling aspects of our lives without fear of being judged. Having a supportive person in our lives who is objective makes a difference in getting through these "bumps in the road". This is, ideally, what a counselor or therapist is for.
