About

Working to solve problems first as a lawyer and now as a psychotherapist with psychoanalytic training, I developed skills in listening and creating solutions. By listening in a neutral, non-judgmental way, I provide a safe, confidential space to understand and resolve challenging issues and relationships at home, at work, or in school. Focusing on your concerns as a team, we develop a working partnership and build on your strengths to increase your understanding and acceptance of yourself and your relationships, and develop positive changes. One of my goals is for you to "graduate" and potentially become your own therapist.
I use dynamic, relational, cognitive and psychoanalytic approaches with individuals and couples. I offer patient listening, empathic curiosity, understanding, interpretation, and humor. Together, we look at how your mind works, how you relate with others and what gives your life meaning and purpose. We assess your challenges and develop goals to work toward.
My office has free parking and is near Metro, I-95, Interstate 495, the B-W Parkway, and the University of Maryland. I enjoy working with career-changers, graduate and undergraduate students of all ages, alumni, faculty, and staff. I offer teletherapy during the pandemic, and am gradually adding some in-person sessions, using appropriate safety precautions.
