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.

Hello! I am a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor in Maryland. I graduated from Thomas Jefferson University with a Master's in Community Trauma Counseling. My work primarily focuses on trauma, sex addiction, women's issues and codependency. I support adults who are struggling with relationship issues and sexual acting out behaviors. I believe that we all face barriers and struggles throughout our lives and we deserve to be seen, heard, and validated in these experiences. In therapy, we can help challenge and process these behaviors and experiences.

Couples counseling is my specialty and what I offer almost exclusively. Whether your relationship is experiencing a major crisis (infidelity or threats of divorce) or whether you just feel stuck and disconnected over a communication issue, I am at home. I've been helping couples re-connect and rediscover that "spark" for over 20 years. My style is warm and engaging and I customize therapy approaches to fit your specific relationship. You'll get feedback from me which is what couples indicate they like best about working with me.

The process of finding a therapist can be daunting, but I believe it is a sign of courage and strength to seek help for lasting personal growth and for stronger and more fulfilling couple and family relationships. My overall perspective about therapy is to show acceptance, compassion and care to all clients; to build safe, warm, trustworthy, and collaborative therapeutic relationships; to apply evidence-based and culturally-competent therapeutic concepts and skills to address clients’ specific needs; and to build upon client’s strength for change. I can speak both English and Mandarin and accept Maryland clients.

We are seeing our individuals and couples in tele-therapy through the COVID-19 crisis. As a "Top Marriage, Family and Sex Therapist" in Washingtonian Magazine in 2009 & 2012, my focus is on helping couples address their emotional and sexual ruptures in their relationships. If you feel far apart from or in conflict with your partner, therapy can help you to feel close again. As an couples relationship and certified sex therapist, with over 30 years of experience, couples learn to unravel their dance and a structured communications tool, which fosters listening, understanding and empathy. Sexual and emotional intimacy are restored.

I enjoy working with dissatisfied couples, Highly Sensitive People, men with difficulty expressing emotions, adult children of dysfunctional parents, sex issues, and high achievers.
Do you like to make progress quickly? I have often been told that clients make more progress with me in ONE session than in months of past therapy. We examine your past, as there cannot be genuine lasting change without insight into how patterns developed, but we are focused on creating the life you want NOW. I work best with clients who are motivated, intelligent, and verbal. Teletherapy only. Visit drpsychmom.com or listen to The Dr. Psych Mom Show (Spotify/Apple) for more insight into my approach. I get you in right away, we don't want to slow down the momentum that brought you here. I can also refer to any of my colleagues!

I have a warm and accepting style and very rarely have clients decide to go elsewhere after they have met me. I was trained by Drs. Aaron Beck and Albert Ellis, the 2 creators of CBT. I enjoy working on gay and lesbian issues and also working with adolescents and young adults. CBT teaches clients to recognize their dysfunctional thoughts and to change them allowing them to eventually become their own therapists.

Sex Therapy
Sex therapists in North Bethesda offer help with sexual concerns by educating, using talk therapy, offering homework exercises and resources for further exploration to either individuals or couples. Sex therapy helps couples talk about sex with each other. A sex therapist feels comfortable talking about sex and is aware of how anxious you might feel talking about this intimate subject with each other and with a near-stranger. They will help set you at ease and guide you into talking about sex. While sex therapists can help with many problems, low sexual desire and frequency disagreements between partners are two of the most frequent concerns they address.
