Most of my clients have had addiction issues. I have learned that many people become addicted because they have had very painful experiences in their lives. Often those painful experiences are related to their substance use. Using drugs or alcohol helps ease the pain of their most painful memories. Unfortunately, using creates a whole host of other problems as well. Therapy can help identify, address, and potentially resolve those issues without drugs. EMDR therapy in particular has been shown to help greatly in reducing the pain of our most painful memories. I offer a friendly, nonjudgmental attitude to users, friends, and family.

My therapeutic process is rooted in principles derived from a long-standing meditation practice combined with traditional time-tested attachment and analytical approaches. Although my process is tailored to each client’s uniqueness, the fundamental aspects involve enhancing personal insight through developing a heightened awareness of both mind and body. I also place a strong emphasis on the the impact of your family system on your present self, so we're likely to explore these aspects of your life as we work to process, integrate, heal, and thrive.

We often feel that we are simply surviving, as opposed to living our full lives to our greatest potential. Clients come to me when a major shift or catastrophe has taken place in their lives. Whether this is the loss of a loved one, or any loss in general, I will provide a safe harbor where we can go to the depths of the soul and fully contemplate the meaning. The goal is to ultimately arrive at a place of acceptance. In learning how to live through these changes and then build anew is my specialty. I help guide you in an existential framework, in which we seek to find your soul's purpose.

Sometimes even the smartest and most capable women I know feel stuck. It could be moving beyond an issue in a relationship, anxiety, perfectionism or it could be an eating disorder or traumatic memory. You may feel like you are underperforming in life and relationships or just completely overwhelmed with everything going on. When we do not have the social support we need or just not sure how to use our social support, it can be helpful to talk to a professional and get objective feedback. To be asked thought provoking questions. To get ideas with how to move forward and start thriving in life!

Are you a human who struggles with life? Do you find yourself "going through the motions"? Do you feel like you're constantly in survival mode, going from one crisis to the next? Do you find yourself feeling anxious, depressed or increasingly alone? Does your mind race at night, does it replay all of your mistakes? We all struggle with these kinds of thoughts/feelings because of how our mind works. Imagine if you didn't have to struggle and you were engaged in your life in more meaningful ways. You can become more active and engaged in your life and be who you truly want to be. You can LIVE more and struggle less.

What type of Frederick 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 Frederick?
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.
