Are you new to the Washington, DC area? Are you starting a new degree program or a new job? Have these changes and transitions caused change to your relationships, or caused you to feel more isolated? Whether you’re feeling down, overwhelmed, or stuck, my goal is to help you navigate these feelings and discover a renewed sense of self. Life presents many challenges, but understanding the connection between our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, can significantly impact our well-being. I strive to provide an authentic and positive environment where you feel safe and empowered to create meaningful change.
I offer a warm and holistic approach to therapy for students, young professionals, and adults. Our work together may involve self-reflection, mindfulness practices, and/or exploring creative solutions to current obstacles. Whatever your therapeutic goals, we will collaborate on what works best for you.
Call or email me today. I’m accepting new clients. My office is just steps from the Tenleytown/AU Red Line metro station. I look forward to hearing from you soon! My on-site clinical supervisor is Erika Bugaj, LICSW.
