I teach communication skills that help with difficult relationships. These skills include helping my clients improve their power, voice, and contact with significant others. I employ many approaches in psychotherapy, including psychodynamic, gestalt, somatic experiencing (SE), accelerated experiential dynamic (AEDP), cognitive behavioral (CBT) and emotionally focused couples therapy (EFT).

I am trained in a variety of approaches, to include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy through the Beck Institute, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and others.
Hello and welcome! Successful therapy is so often about finding the right “fit” between therapist and client. With over 25 years’ experience in providing therapy I have had time to master multiple approaches to treatment, which means that I can customize your treatment to fit your needs. I take a collaborative problem-solving approach to treatment, where we establish an alliance to facilitate beneficial therapeutic change. As a therapist I value your experiences, desires, and goals. A major focus of my therapeutic work is with clients with anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship problems.

I work with adults, adolescents and children in psychodynamic therapy and psychoanalysis. The approach taken respects each person's individuality and the work is done in ways that are suited to each person's style and personality. The frequency and duration of treatment depends on the unique needs of each person - for example, a person may be seeking short-term therapy to deal with a school or work transition, while another person may be seeking longer term treatment to understand longstanding emotional pain or a pattern of unsuccessful relationships.

Let's just take a moment and acknowledge how big of a deal this is. You decided to do the thing...the thing that you may have been contemplating for quite some time now. Yeah, looking for a therapist. And that alone can require mustering an enormous amount of courage. So, I'm excited you've taken some action and made it here. The work is not always easy, in fact, it can be downright hard. The work does not always feel as though there is a steady pay off. So why even bother? Well, for those who continue despite the discomfort, the uncertainty, the fear, and the pain there is the hope of transformation, healing, and self-empowerment.

When I see a new patient for the first time, I try to assess what he or she wants from life or from what each person is struggling. I do this with individuals or parents so together so we can determine what is best for him or her or their child at the current time. Sometimes people want to work on one problem and then develop a curiosity about how their minds work. Often in those situations, I work more intensely and more frequency to search for what is meaning to people and how they wants to navigate in the world in a freer way.

"Adulting" can be complicated. If you're in your teens or twenties, you know what I'm talking about - the pressure is real. Yes, it can be a time of new and exciting experiences, but it can also be fraught with anxiety, confusion, heartbreak, and unexpected forks in the road. Whether you're struggling with problems at school or work, difficult relationships, or just the sense that something is missing from your life, therapy may help. Creating lasting and meaningful change can be challenging but you don't have to do it alone.

Adrian is a counseling student. She uses a Narrative approach to therapy that helps clients externalize their problems, make meaning from ambiguity and grow using natural strengths and assets. By illuminating forgotten or under-utilized special skills, clients can find more control over their lives and grow their tolerance for discomfort and change. Narrative Therapy guides clients in taking back authorship of their story and challenging dominant narratives that may have corrupted their ability to move forward. Clients will synthesize their goals for change and learn to celebrate complex ways of looking at the world.

Are you or a loved one anxious and unable to find the words to explain? That anxiety may cause us to struggle with our communication, lash out in anger, act on impulses, get lost in our emotions, avoid tasks, distract us from success, and disconnect us from support systems. This is especially prevalent in the adolescent and young adult population among other struggles such as depression, ADHD, life transitions, chronic illness, OCD, and lack of self esteem. As a nuerodivergent and LGBTQI+ affirming therapist, I am to tackle these struggles by empowering my client's to find and use their unique strengths, beliefs, and passions.

I specialize in sex and internet pornography addiction. I work one-on-one with men and women, with those attracted to minors, and with couples. My primary treatment goal is to help the sexually addicted individual overcome the addiction and find inner healing. Additionally, I work to promote healing within badly damaged intimate relationships. Initially, I aim to help clients gain immediate relief from the feelings of overwhelm and distress that brought them to counseling to begin with. Subsequently, my primary treatment goal is to collaborate with clients to heal the deeper sources and causes of their suffering and addiction.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Chevy Chase Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
