I also help with blocks to the creative process, such as writer's block and stage fright. I provide a safe and caring environment in which we work together to explore and understand your current distress and find a path to greater ease and fulfillment in life. My approach is insight-oriented, collaborative and problem solving, depending on your particular situation and needs. I work with individuals and couples. I prepare forensic psychological evaluations related to trauma.

I like to work with people who find that their usual ways of dealing with problems in their lives are not working as they have before. These problems can involve relationships of all kinds, effectiveness and satisfaction at work, and the changes and stumbling blocks that inevitably come in the course of life. I take an active role in the work; I am not a silent listener. I also want, hope, and expect that YOU will also take an active role in our work and in putting what we learn to use in your life.

“We don’t have to do it all alone, we were never meant to.”-Brene Brown. Therapy provides clients with a safe space to process one’s life challenges, gain a deeper understanding of themselves, and accomplish goals. My role as a therapist is to provide clients with a warm, comforting, and non-judgmental environment; a space that feels safe to share one’s story. I enjoy working collaboratively with my clients, not making changes for you, but rather supporting you in coping with life’s stressors.

We all face stressors in life that can become overwhelming. Feeling stuck with our own negative thoughts or anxiety about new changes; repeatedly engaging in the same fights with our partner or spouse; worrying that we cannot support our children in the way we want - these are all universal experiences. Everyone faces obstacles, but not everyone has to remain feeling helpless, hopeless, or stagnant. It is at these times when it makes the most sense to reach out for support and when therapy can be most effective.

Are you struggling with memories of a traumatic event, anxiety, low mood, irritability, hyper-alertness, sleeplessness, or bad dreams? After a trauma, some people have trouble re-engaging with their lives and their loved ones. When the world just doesn't seem to make sense any more, it can be hard to reach out. Recovering from trauma can be challenging, but there are therapeutic techniques that can help. Finding the right approach and the right therapist are essential to alleviating traumatic stress symptoms and to helping you reconnect with family, friends, work, and life.

You feel like you’ve lost control of your own life. You’re feeling stuck reliving the past and fearing the future. You tell yourself you should “just get over it,” wondering if you’re overreacting. As much as you try to “move on,” the past has a frustrating way of popping back up. You work HARD to reclaim control of your life, yet you’re getting tired of pretending everything is “fine.” Because on the inside, it feels like you’re on an emotional roller coaster, feeling overwhelmed, strangely numb, and everything in between. You’ve lost touch with your own innate worthiness and power. And you just want your life back.

A unique perspective of persons as inherently dignified, supported by philosophic and scientific education and study, informs my holistic view of the person sitting in front of me during the process of psychotherapy. With mindful attentiveness and by gently confronting obstacles and threats to emotional health and relational satisfaction in a collaborative manner, the patients I work with are able to experience an increase in personal resilience simultaneous to undergoing the process of cathartic healing. My use of techniques drawn from an array of professional proclivities creates a safe relationship that nourishes innate strengths

What type of Bethesda mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Bethesda?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
