I am trained in many techniques, including Cognitive Therapies, EMDR, Accelerated Resolution Therapy, Brainspotting, Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Gottman, Imago , and Grief Counseling.
When you are looking for a therapist, that decision often comes during times of crisis. This loss of balance and connection makes it hard to make decisions or trust anyone. But as you take this first step, I will honor your trust with a relationship that is free of judgement and focused on finding your foundation. Whether you are coping with trauma, depression, stress, anxiety, life transition, relationship or marital issues, we can work together to make things better. I bring to the table a deep knowledge of a diverse set of treatment methods that allow me to tailor your therapy uniquely to your personality, challenges and life.

I have been in private practice for 13 years in Columbia Maryland, and provide individual, couple and group psychotherapy to adults and adolescents. My personal philosophy has always been to be of service to others. I have created a process to bring in to conscious awareness patterns of limiting beliefs and blockages in a place where healing and personal growth can flourish in an environment that is safe, confidential and free of judgement. The journey to the authentic self is one that requires courage, determination, self-reflection and unconditional love of yourselves.

Have you lost interest in sexual intimacy? Do you feel disconnected from your partner? Is it challenging to resolve conflict? Has communication become dull and non-existent? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it's time to reconnect, rebuild and reignite your love life. Sharing intimate challenges can be tough. As a couples therapist, I'm comfortable navigating uncomfortable sexual problems. I'll help make it easier for you and your partner to share intimate details of your lives.

*Start via a free 20-min. consult* You want a deeper connection with your partner but it feels so awkward to have the conversations that need to happen so that you might be better known by them. It seems they don't care about you. How to begin to change your relationship quality is overwhelming and it feels like you are stuck with a person who just doesn't get it. Your relationship lacks good energy and it feels like you are just problem solving together but not enjoying the best parts of life together - romance, sex, and closeness. Something's got to change you can't zombie through life together anymore!

Traumatic events from years ago can cast a shadow over your life now. You might have disturbing memories or dreams, feelings of insecurity, or overreactions to certain situations. Frequent bouts of sadness may trouble you, as well as relationship troubles. You may have developed coping patterns that helped you for years, but that now interfere with experiencing happiness. I will help you tap into your natural ability to heal and change by providing a supportive environment where you feel that someone else is truly listening. This often decreases the intensity of traumatic feelings within a relatively short period of time.

These often include relationship challenges and sexual problems such as lack of desire/low libido, difficulty with arousal, erections, premature ejaculation and trouble reaching orgasm. Anxiety about sexual performance, lost intimacy, sexual abuse, infidelity, menopause, illness and aging can also interfere with sexual satisfaction. Sex therapy may address problematic or illegal sexual behaviors, sexual compulsivity, paraphilias and fetishes. Clients can benefit from exploring issues surrounding sexual orientation, gender identity, asexuality, polyamory and kink.

Imago is a theory used to help couples establish a connection as I help guide and facilitate a dialogue to help them connect and discover better ways to communicate.
No matter what life has thrown your way or what you have experienced over time, you can recover. Healing occurs through a reparative therapeutic relationship, which helps you connect to the relationship first with yourself, family and friends, and the world surrounding you. I am enthusiastic about working with adults and couples. I offer an open, brave, and safe space to help support my clients in their healing to become the best version of themselves. I am gentle in my approach. However, I do confront matters to help you dig a little deeper to help you connect with the insight for your healing. For couples, l utilize Imago therapy.

Imago Therapists
Imago Relationship Therapy is a form of marriage therapy that takes a relationship approach rather than an individual approach to problem solving in a marriage. Imago therapy is a wonderfully effective and safe approach to helping relationship partners grow into understanding each other more fully and relating more honestly as they evolve into greater wholeness as individuals within the relational context they share. Imago is also relevant for single individuals as we are all in many relational contexts.
