We use a sexual health model and work with individuals and couples of any sexual orientation & lifestyle.
You may feel like you’re the only one experiencing sexual challenges in your relationship, but difficulties like low desire, painful sex, or premature ejaculation are more common than you think. If you’ve been afraid to talk about your sexual challenges, you probably feel alone, overwhelmed, and unsure about what to do. If you’re in a relationship, you and your partner may have stopped talking about sex, deepening the disconnection and feelings of loneliness and shame. Fortunately, there is a way out of this negative cycle, and you can create the sex life and relationship you desire.

This means that I take into account my clients' emotional and relational history, in addition to observing present interactions. This collaboration of information from both the past and present is important in helping each person realize that he/she contributes to the way his/her life functions. It is my goal to help individuals recognize the impact of their unique roles in the family so that they may improve the quality of their interpersonal relationships.

*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.

Louis, I have been providing therapy to children, adolescents, couples , families and individuals.
As a parent, do you worry about your child's behavior, emotional well-being or social relationships? Has your child struggled adjusting to your divorce, remarriage or a traumatic life event? Are you in an intimate relationship where you desire more closeness and fun? As an individual, do you experience anxiety, depression or the abuse of alcohol or drugs?

My specialty is working with busy Moms' of color, struggling with depression and anxiety along with couples (dating, premarital, married).
I know that asking for help can feel like a burden sometimes. Do you feel like you have to be “everything” to everyone but feel alone when your in need? Are you struggling to say “no” then resent your yes? Do you put everyone before you and then don't have enough time for you or your dreams? Do you feel “stuck” after giving so much and then realize your not making progress in your life? More often than we realize, we tend to lose ourselves giving what we don’t have while trying to manage it all; parenthood, relationships, careers, and life situations. We then become overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, or stuck about our next move.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Gaithersburg?
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.
