About

People seek therapy for a variety of reasons and at various times throughout their life. The decision to see a therapist may be centered around a recent crisis that is causing emotional stress, a desire to address long-standing symptoms or simply a wish to make a change in one’s life. Whatever the reason, I see psychotherapy as an opportunity for you to get to know yourself better and work towards leading a more meaningful life.
My approach is primarily focused on psychodynamic therapy, which means working together in a way that allows us to gain insight into the underlying factors that may be at the root of some of your struggles. I work with adults and adolescents who experience anxiety, depression, grief/loss, relationship issues, work & school difficulties, and life transitions.
I specialize in working with individuals who have experienced trauma. I am committed to providing a safe environment so that we can think and talk about the things that matter to you most. I completed the Psychoanalytic Studies Program at the Washington Baltimore Center for Psychoanalysis.
