Much of this work has been for individuals with suicide -related lived experience.
Psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to decrease suffering and increase quality of life. My approach to treatment is both collaborative and pragmatic - we will develop a good sense of why your experience makes sense, determine the best treatment strategies that match your preferences, and track progress over time. We will work to achieve both near-term relief and larger, thematic improvements in your life.

I am a psychotherapist licensed in Washington DC and Maryland working with children, adolescents and adults. As a graduate of the Psychoanalytic Studies Program at the Washington Baltimore Center for Psychoanalysis, my approach is psychoanalytically oriented and psychodynamic. I believe that developing a narrative of our experience leads to personal growth and a more fulfilled life. We heal by telling our stories through words, play or symbols, in the context of a caring relationship.

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.

As a psychotherapist, I am committed to providing a supportive, safe and judgment-free environment for my clients to work through present problems and to address unresolved issues from the past. The goal is to help individuals better understand the causes of their problems and identify patterns, develop better self-awareness and self-acceptance, form healthier relationships and improve the overall quality of their life. Understanding the impact of the past and making peace with it are important components of treatment as one's past can continue to hunt the present time and influence it in ways that are not always evident to us.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Bethesda?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
