We all face challenges in our lives that we may have difficulty navigating through. It may be feeling depressed or anxious, experiencing relational/family conflict and grief, or adjusting to life transitions. Sometimes we need another person to help us along the way outside of our loved ones. That's where I come in. I strive to help you work through adversities, build upon your strengths, and empower you to create new, meaningful, and fulfilling chapters in your life. I specialize in working with individuals ages 18-30+ and couples.

You may have come here because something is not working in your life and you want it better or because you want more from life. I come with my training, my 30 years of experience as a psychotherapist, my many more years of life experience, my mind, good heart and my intention to heal. You come with your issues, your past, perhaps with your anxiety, depression, or guilt. You also come with your strengths, some of which you might not recognize, and upon which we will build. I believe we are equal as humans, just sitting different chairs. I look forward to working with you.

We thrive from emotional connections and sometimes those connections become strained by misunderstandings or disconnected through loss and we are left feeling distraught. Learn to develop effective communication skills, embrace grief, identify ways to cope, build trusting relationships with your significant other and those you care about. After a painful relationship sometimes we become unsure of the next step. Want someone to understand painful past experiences, anxiety, depression or indecision and how this gets in the way of a life you want to live? Take a deep breath, take the next step and call. No need to wait any longer.

Individuals come to see me for many reasons: Trauma, Grief, Anxiety, ADHD, Depression, OCD, changes in family dynamics and other life changes. I want to provide an open, relaxed, non-judgmental environment that allows you to reach your full potential. Whatever your reason, therapy can be the first step.

Did you know that 90% of the people who have had previous therapy do not remember what they learned? I have a sign in my office that says "What did you learn today?" I will work in partnership with you as a therapist and teacher. I work with women and men age 18+ who have depression, anxiety, trauma, self esteem or relationship issues. I will ask your goals for therapy. We will look at three major issues: (1) Both negative and positive patterns in your life; (2) the context of your environment and its impact on you; and (3) life's bumps in the road.

We, as human beings, have our habitual way to think, feel, and behave which may not always help us cope well. We may feel stuck in the past, fearful for the unknown future, and not being able to be present in the moment. We are not able to change the past and we cannot live in the future because future is delusional and non-existent. The present is the only time that we can do something to make a change and feel better. We do not need to deal with a struggle once we stop fighting against it and begin to practice acceptance and let go of the attachment to our habitual pattern so as to respond with a mindful and non-judgmental mind.

I believe in creating a safe, supportive space to understand oneself more deeply. As connection and trust evolve between myself and the client, a frank discussion about their identity, wishes, feelings, conflicts can be facilitated and understood. This can enable them make informed decisions regarding how to better navigate their lives. When a patient comes in crisis, I am also available as support, to help them return to a previous level of functioning. We try to learn the significance of this event, so as to use it as an opportunity to enrich the client's life.

Many patients struggle with the fact that they seek therapy. However, I applaud your choice to begin the significant process of self exploration and growth. I believe that in spite of pitfalls and stressors, we are all faced with the opportunity to choose how we live our life. By validating feelings I help my clients fully accept themselves while encouraging and motivating them to do their best. Together we will gain acceptance of the choices that lead you to therapy, then collaboratively develop and implement a plan that will allow you to seek better and more rewarding opportunities.

What type of North Bethesda 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 North Bethesda?
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.
