In my experience of over 30years in clinical practice, I have learned to use a variety of approaches to help people with a broad range of life problems. I began with a grounding in psychoanalytic theory,tempered with an awareness of cultural and socio-economic differences, enhanced by a foundation in medicine. My way of working is to listen carefully to develop an understanding of each person's background, history and world view in order to help that person understand his/her motives, emotions,behavior in order to resolve conflicts and lead a more fulfilled life with more satisfying relationships.

For over 30 years, I've worked with a wide range of clients to help them identify, understand and address the causes of their distress. Together, we explore the themes and patterns in your life, past and present, that may be interfering with your personal satisfaction and growth. We work to expand your perspective, increase understanding of yourself and your relationships, enhance and develop more effective coping strategies and communication skills. I believe that therapy is most effective in an atmosphere of safety, empathy and collaboration and I strive to foster that through active engagement, openness and flexibility.

Located in downtown Washington, DC, I specialize in queer topics and behavior modification. The clients I enjoy working with the most are children, teens, adults, 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.

People often seek therapy when emotions become too distressing, relationship or life circumstances are unsatisfying, and support and new strategies are needed to help the person feel and behave differently. Working with a therapist can enhance your ability to tolerate difficult situations, and make the process of personal growth and change more productive. Therapy is most effective when a collaborative relationship develops between therapist and client. I aim to create an empathetic and supportive environment, where exploring difficult issues will feel safe. Together, we will identify what has created negative emotions or life dissatisfaction, and work actively towards positive change.

I work with clients who are distressed or confused by why they engage in the behaviors they do, whether it's addiction, anger, illegal or anti-social behavior, or relationship difficulties and challenges. I believe this is because my stance is non-judgmental and I genuinely believe that all behavior is rational given past experience, even if it is not helpful or healthy in the present. I work to help clients navigate how these behaviors may have arisen, to develop self-compassion, and then to provide support and strategies to do the hard work of adopting new, more helpful behaviors.

I think therapy is like a puzzle, you put the pieces together to create a full picture. I focus on helping you develop a deeper exploration of who you are and how you can feel whole again. By understanding what's working and what's not working, we will be entering a deeper exploration of the self. The ultimate goal of therapy with me is to develop greater self knowledge, self acceptance and be able to change the things that need changing. Bring your patience, this is hard work and it takes time. I welcome the opportunity to work with you.
