Life often throws curveballs. I work with everyday people experiencing rough patches in their lives and in their relationships. New situations, old patterns, feelings and behaviors can be worked on in a collaborative, guided and insightful way. As a psychologist, I help people with their images of themselves and assist clients in integrating new definitions of themselves. My focus is on clients in late adolescence through adulthood.

Loneliness and anxiety are pervasive in our society today. Many of us feel overwhelmed with the stressors of daily life and that overwhelm is compounded by depression, anxiety, past trauma, abuse, or current marital and parenting difficulties. We long to not feel alone anymore and to talk with someone who can understand and help.

Welcome! I specifically enjoy working with adult women and their partners who have a history of childhood trauma, and are looking for more insight into their thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns. Maybe it seems like everything is against you, that life will never get better, or that everyone else seems to have it together except you. Perhaps you have struggled for a long time with controlling your impulses, relationships never seem to stick, and chaos and crisis seems to follow you wherever you go. We can address feelings such as shame, distrust, overwhelm, panic, irritability, anger, and depression without judgement.

*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS 18+ RESIDING IN MD & VA* Therapy can feel like uncharted territory. It is normal to feel nervous, apprehensive, and unsure if this is going to work. My job is to be your tour guide as someone who has expertise in helping people just like you on the journey towards healing. You have heard of getting a heart, liver, or even lung transplant, but you will never hear of someone getting a brain transplant. This is why taking care of your mind is so important. Starting at our very first session, we will work together to create a road map for where we are going, and identify how we will know once we have arrived.

What type of Gaithersburg 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 Gaithersburg?
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.
