When working with kids/teens, I integrate a family systems approach and work with parents to help them learn the most appropriate response to their anxious child.
Deciding to see a therapist can be a difficult decision, whether it is for yourself, or your teen/child. In my practice, I use a supportive, non-judgmental, cognitive behavioral approach. My work will be practical and oriented towards results. It will ultimately increase your self-confidence. I have had great success working with people of all ages on their various fears using CBT.

I believe that therapy is most effective when provided in an authentic and nonjudgmental setting between two equals. My best work is done with clients who want to better understand themselves and come with an open mind; I believe the therapy space allows for shared laughs as well as deep reflection and curiosity. Our sessions together will blend here-and-now approaches informed by CBT (changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviors) and exploration of deeper parts of you that created these, informed by an Internal Family Systems approach. I also offer Neurofeedback (this is helpful for many issues such as anxiety, depression, focus).

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.

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.

My client-centered, strength-based approach empowers and motivates my clients to direct the pace and trajectory of therapy. I assist my clients with identifying their goals for treatment, as well as the constraints preventing them from achieving them. As the therapeutic process unfolds, we work together to determine how to remove the constraints—and sometimes explore how they got there in first place. I am knowledgeable about and comfortable with a wide range of therapeutic models and interventions, all of which offer useful tools for understanding how problems originate, as well as how to effect positive change here and now.

I am a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner committed to mental health treatment promotion and prevention. With a psychodynamic foundation, I integrate Internal family systems ( IFS ) and attachment theories to my treatment approach. This approach is successful with clients seeking help with adulting, relationships, families, and parenting as well as individual therapy. As an open and affirming Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner I've learned that the integration of these talk modalities are helpful for navigating life processes. Talk therapy undergirds the treatment relationship and when necessary may be complemented with medication management.

Is your day to day life reactivating old childhood wounds or creating greater stress? Do you need solutions fast so that more time isn’t lost to overwhelm, self-doubt and failing relationships? What if you had the confidence and comfort within yourself to face it all? Start moving in a new, more positive direction with a Transformation Therapy Intensive (TTI). Imagine how creative and unstoppable you could be if you were to keep the wisdom gained from past challenges, but lose the associated pain. A TTI is to regular talk therapy what a plane ride is to a bike ride, getting you much further much faster, and living with joy.

Using IFS , Sensorimotor, mindfulness, psychodynamic and other modalities, I am available to work with people of any age around most concerns.
Having witnessed and participated in twenty years of clients' progress, I have great confidence in this powerful process. We all want to feel optimistic and enjoy our lives, with minimal stress, doubts, anxiety, depression, and confusion. Most of us have strong and centered parts that were buried or muted as a result of trauma, loss or other painful experiences. Learning to empower these healthy parts helps us manage inevitable difficult thoughts and feelings more calmly and effectively and to enjoy healthy relationships. Depending on individual situations, short term therapy or Skype sessions may be possible.

Accepting NEW Clients! The people I work with want to change the way they are feeling and relating to others. They struggle to cope with triggers, emotions or experiences day to day, and tend to judge themselves for this and its impact on their lives. Whether acute or chronic trauma, relationship issues or emotional challenges, I work with clients to process physical, emotional and mental symptoms that cause them to feel stuck, isolated and unworthy of healthy connections. Building on your strengths, we will work together towards an outcome of added joy, aliveness and connection to self and others.

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.
