Announcement icon During the quarantine, and until I can return to the office (hopefully soon!), I am offering teletherapy appts. Don't hesitate to reach out!
My specialty is helping individuals to work to remove challenges to achieving satisfaction in their lives. Many times we find ourselves stuck in patterns that are self-defeating but seem difficult to change. These may cause us problems in school and work, as well as in our peer and family relationships, and interfere with the enjoyment of pleasurable activities. These patterns may be due to our early experiences within our families, or as a result of challenges faced in adolescence and adulthood. No matter your age or phase of life, therapy can help.
My style is a blend of approaches, tailored to the individual needs of my clients, although I do pay special attention to developing a trusting, collaborative therapy relationship, as well as providing clients with the tools they need to have more consistent positive experiences in their lives.
Over the past 20 years I have worked with a variety of individuals to address the difficulties they they feel are holding them back, and in 2009 I was honored to be named one of Washingtonian magazine's "Best Therapists." My practice is across from the Friendship Heights Metro and handicapped accessible.
