About

During this time of uncertainty, many are experiencing increased stress, grief, depression, and interpersonal difficulties. With over 20 years of experience, I am here to help. I am on faculty at The Catholic University of America and the Washington School of Psychiatry where I continuously both learn and teach the latest findings in effective therapy.
Your time and life is valuable. Therefore, I work in a partnership with my clients to rapidly reach goals and access the root of the problems. Using a number of modalities including cognitive therapy, mindfulness techniques, short-term psychodynamic treatment, and the recent findings in neuroscience, I tailor the treatment for each client.
My approach is active and focused in the current moment. During these challenging times, my background as a Mindfulness instructor and professor give me specific tools to help my clients regulate their anxieties. I invite you to visit my website for more details.
