Adrian has experience working with clients impacted by disordered eating, psychosis , developmental issues, anxiety, body-image and the impacts of social expectations like perfectionism and individualism on our mental health.
Adrian takes a collaborative approach to therapy, supporting clients to take center-stage in their lives. Clients externalize their problems, make meaning from ambiguity and grow using natural strengths and assets. By illuminating forgotten or under-utilized skills, clients can find more control and grow their tolerance for discomfort and change. Clients will synthesize their goals for change and learn to celebrate complex ways of looking at the world.

I have worked with individuals ages 4-85 with problems ranging from psychosis to mild anxiety.
Clients come to me when they are dissatisfied with their lives and/or overwhelmed by a situation or stressor. I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor and work together with you to develop a treatment which incorporates your strengths, needs and life experiences. I also respect your wish to work on a specific area of concern short-term and/or to address a variety of complex issues over time. During the treatment, my clients report that they feel safe, supported and challenged by me, and that their lives are highly enriched by the experience.

Life can be overwhelming at times. Challenging relationships, work stress, feeling stuck or dissatisfied with life circumstances can all contribute to anxiety, depression or other mental health issues. While there is much in life that we cannot control, it IS possible to find effective ways to cope. My style is honest, collaborative, supportive, and empathic while being constructive and solution oriented. While targeting the therapeutic goals of each client, I take a comprehensive, nonjudgmental approach. Clients like that I do more than just listen. I raise questions, get them thinking, make suggestions, and actively engage.

In my practice, I work with a diverse clientele: children, adolescents and adults from all backgrounds. My approach is practical and conversational as we explore together the stressors of daily living, relationship concerns, parenting issues, and in some instances, severe psychiatric disorders. Often, clients seek short-term interventions, though for some difficulties therapy continues for an extended period. I allow my clients to set the agenda for our work together and decide what sort of help is needed.

After an assessment of 1 or 2 sessions, we will arrive at an initial understanding of your situation and the issues and/or symptoms you'd like to address. We'll look at treatment options and agree on a plan, which may include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), insight-oriented psychotherapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, or couples therapy, as indicated by your particular problem.

Stress and emotional pain are feelings that we all experience and often times it can become overwhelming, especially now! Often we find unhealthy ways to cope with the pain that we are feeling and our problems get worse. With my experience as a therapist, I have helped many young people walk the path to a healthy form of emotional healing. Whether you yourself or your child is struggling with feeling down, having excessive worry, struggling to concentrate, acting out, or drinking/smoking too much, therapy can help.

Do you worry that you are not a good enough parent, partner or friend? Do you have trouble getting to sleep when you are overloaded with thoughts about mistakes you've made? Do you wake up most mornings feeling depressed or anxious? Are your moods swinging- you have a short fuse- or are you shutting down? If yes, you could be suffering from depression & anxiety. The cause could be chemical-due to a family history or it could be situational-due to a loss or traumatic event. Traumatic events include becoming a caregiver to a family member with mental illness.

I work with adults and adolescents with a variety of struggles and difficulties including relationship problems, depression, anxiety, trauma, and loss. I think about treating whole people rather than diagnoses or problems. And, because each person is unique, I believe that close and careful listening is vital as I try to understand each person who comes to see me. I work to create secure and collaborative relationships in which my patients and I can be curious together and work on understanding and shifting patterns of thinking, feeling, and relating that may cause symptoms and interfere with living fully and freely.

I have been in the private practice of psychodynamic psychiatry for over three decades. I provide psychotherapy and prescribe medication only when indicated as an adjunct to your psychotherapy. I offer a safe, warm and trusting environment in which you can discuss your deepest concerns and you can feel that you are being listened to and truly heard. Together we would work to understand the conflictual issues that are contributing to your difficulties and that are preventing you from achieving your goals in your interpersonal, occupational and academic life.

What type of Chevy Chase 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 Chevy Chase?
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.
