I specialize in helping individuals heal from the emotional wounds that can be created by traumatic experiences. I work with children, adolescents, and adults, meeting my clients wherever they may be in their journey toward healing. My theoretical approach is eclectic, rooted in relational, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioral theories. I prioritize being goal-oriented, having a clear treatment plan, and regularly measuring progress during therapy. I value your perspective on our progress and will invite your feedback regularly, as well as objectively measuring progress with standardized psychological measures.

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.

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, attachment issues and sex addiction. I support adults who are struggling with relationship issues as well as sexual acting out behaviors. I also support adults struggling with anxiety and depression. 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
