I also draw from lived experiences with marriage , divorce, solo parenting, and alternative romantic relationships.
I love working with couples and individuals with difficulty in romantic relationships (i.e. sexual issues, communication, infidelity, divorce), adults who come from dysfunctional childhoods, as well as those with anxiety, impulsivity, and addiction. I also enjoy working with those in non-traditional romantic relationships (i.e. ethically non-monogamous, polyamorous). I am LGBTQIA- affirming and sex positive. I work best with clients who are engaged, thoughtful, and motivated for change. My style is empathic and direct, with a sense of humor. I believe strongly in the therapeutic alliance and the client/therapist fit.

I believe that my role as a therapist is to provide support for clients who have decided to enter therapy due to any number of concerns. Addressing life's many challenges can be a daunting experience. Finding the right "fit" with a therapist can prove central in attaining the most positive outcome in a therapeutic relationship. I strive to provide an environment rich in understanding and empathy while helping clients achieve personal goals and reduction of emotional symptoms such as anxiety and depression. My goal is to provide clients with a strong sense of self- awareness while building on individual strengths.

It is necessary to be compassionate and patient with yourself as you approach this challenge. It takes work to transform ourselves into healthier beings.

Has there been something big that's happened that you want to talk through? Are you and your partner having the same fight over and over again? Have you lost your voice, or are you simply trying to find it in this crazy, loud world? Therapy provides a chance to help you explore who you are and how you relate to others. The knowledge you gain can help point you towards the life you long for. Finding the right therapist to do this with is so important. You should feel comfortable and safe, without worrying about being judged.

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.

At Elite Behavioral Therapy, I believe you are the author of your own experience and the expert on your own life. But sometimes even experts need advice. Perhaps you have wondered why there isn’t a how-to manual for your own life. Or thought that others seem to know the secret ingredient to the recipe for a successful relationship. There is no magical formula for happiness. But I can be your guide, and help you dispel the myths and negative stories that you have told yourself that's getting in the way of your happiness. Worries, stresses, joy, and hopes? I can help you better manage the conflicts everyone struggles.

It is common to feel frustrated and misunderstood at times within our significant relationships, particularly with an intimate partner. When we repeatedly feel unheard and blamed, feelings of resentment may build, contributing to chronic feelings of rupture and disconnection. Over time, this dynamic can become emotionally and physically exhausting. What once felt like a perfect union, may start feeling like a pattern of never-ending conflict. Many couples can fall into this frustrating cycle of miscommunication, feeling misunderstood and resentment.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in North Bethesda?
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.
