Are you regularly feeling overwhelmed? Experiencing intimacy or communication problems in your relationships? Feeling run down and uncertain how to get going again? Let's work together to re-discover your strengths and improve how you feel about yourself and others around you. Our approach to counseling combines Cognitive-Behavioral therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness practices. CBT is a widely used form of therapy with which you will learn (1) to tune into your self-talk, (2) recognize how your self-talk impacts your feelings and decisions, and (3) how to re-frame those unhelpful thoughts into more positive ones.

My approach to therapy is creative and collaborative. I believe each individual – no matter their age or gender identity – is unique and should have a therapist who is genuine, practices unconditional positive regard, and has empathic understanding. In session, I will approach the client where they are and with what they may currently be experiencing. My approach starts with building a positive, warm, and trusting relationship. This will provide a foundation of support, encouragement, and connection, and after that the work can truly begin. I do not expect a client to work harder in our relationship than I am willing to do myself.

I specialize in sex and internet pornography addiction. I work one-on-one with men and women, with those attracted to minors, and with couples. My primary treatment goal is to help the sexually addicted individual overcome the addiction and find inner healing. Additionally, I work to promote healing within badly damaged intimate relationships. Initially, I aim to help clients gain immediate relief from the feelings of overwhelm and distress that brought them to counseling to begin with. Subsequently, my primary treatment goal is to collaborate with clients to heal the deeper sources and causes of their suffering and addiction.

When feelings of irritability, fear, worry, anger, sadness, isolation, and emotional ups and downs become overwhelming, it can interfere with your ability to engage at work, at home, and in your relationships. Sometimes, there are deeper issues underneath. Sometimes, there are even events in your past that are impacting your ability to move forward. But you can make it through. In therapy with me, you will experience a safe and comfortable environment to work through these issues together to develop strength in the face of difficulty. Restoration, renewal, and resilience are possible.

Are negative thoughts, anxiety or depression stealing your peace of mind? Are you constantly overthinking or thinking the worst? Do you tend to really be hard on yourself? Has stress and worrying taken over your life? Are your relationships causing you pain and strife? If you answered yes to any of these questions, please know that you no longer have to suffer through this alone. I would like to help you work through these challenges. Having a therapist to talk to who is non-judgmental and caring can be exactly what you need to decrease your frustrations, lift your spirits and help you find the peace of mind that you crave.

Living a life of peace, free from chaos and dis-ease is what most people strive for. But often we are confronted with anxiety, depression, mood shifts, trauma, stress, anger, grief, isolation, etc. My goal is to help you to restore health and well-being. There are some circumstances of the past that cannot be changed but improving your understanding of past events will help as we work together to create a better present (the here and now), that will lead to a better future.

As a person experiencing anxiety, a stressful life transition, overwhelming emotions or symptoms of trauma, you are motivated to feel good again and reclaim your life. You’ve tried to fix it on your own, but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You’re worried things might get worse, or maybe they already have. You know healing is possible, but it seems out of reach. Choosing to start, or restart therapy can be scary! You want to make sure you select the right person who you can really connect with and feel confident has the expertise to help.

As I start working with my clients, I seek to thoroughly understand their problems and difficulties, the need for psychotherapy services at this time in their lives, and their expectations and goals of therapeutic treatment. I also explore how past events and experiences from their life contributed to the present problems/difficulties and current ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. My ultimate goal is to help clients better understand the root cause(s) of their current difficulties, work through their specific issues or concerns, experience new ways of being with other people, and live a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

BlueCross BlueShield Therapists
BlueCross BlueShield insurance provides coverage for behavioral health services in Kensington. BCBS HMO-style plans cover in-network providers while PPO plans provide a benefit that can be applied to either in-network or out-of-network providers. Blue Cross Blue Shield may not require a referral from your primary care practitioner for covered behavioral health services.

Some BCBS Therapists in Kensington only have room for a few insurance slots in their schedule, so it's important to confirm in-network availability when you book your first appointment.

Blue Cross Blue Shield companies are independently owned and community-based healthcare insurers. BCBS is the largest health insurer in the US, covering 110 million members in 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. Nationwide, more than 1.7 million health care providers contract with Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies.
