My goal in therapy is to create a safe place where you can comfortably identify, process, and work through the challenges that are making it difficult to build the life you want. I work with adolescents and adults dealing with life transitions, relationship challenges, difficulties at work or school, and those experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress. In our work together, I will approach you as an individual and draw from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, mindfulness, and strengths-based perspectives.

I strongly believe in working with people of all ages, since our stages of life change.

When is anxiety normal and when is it time to get help? You can't turn off your brain at night? Are you avoiding situations that make you nervous? Do you not want to get out of bed and face the day? Are you feeling exhausted with by all of the worry? These are the signs that anxiety is taking over your life. But you already know that, right? I'm not telling you anything new. The thing about anxiety is that it does not go away on its own and so often people turn to medication. Unfortunately, medication just numbs the symptoms temporarily, it doesn't make anxiety go away.

I listen carefully and compassionately to your special needs, and consider them in the context of your experience and present situation—a holistic approach that recognizes both your needs and their roots. Often these roots are cultural, a fact I know because my own life spans several cultures. I am committed to empowering those affected by trauma and other adverse life experiences.

TELETHERAPY AVAILABLE. Ideally, I want to create an environment that allows my clients to find their way, learn about themselves, and grow to be leaders in their treatment. The approaches I use give clients the ability to take the initiative, evaluate and then make a plan of action. Making the decision to enter into therapy is a challenge in itself. But in the end I want to meet the client where they are at and go from there. Where applicable I use Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, play therapy, career/coaching and other modalities in practice.

I work from the perspective that all of us can bring certain strengths to bear and that we can benefit from self-understanding in order to use our strengths to the best of our abilities. Through a collaborative framework, I help people cope with the pressures of everyday life, transitions that are challenging and/or stressful as well as longstanding concerns such as learning difficulties, anxieties, mood problems, interpersonal concerns, and life transitions.

I feel strongly in the client driving the therapy process. Each client is the best expert on themselves. We all have innate strengths, even those that present as barriers at times. Learning to understand and utilize these strengths can be life changing. I will partner with you to find a methodology that you connect with best. I believe the trigger or concerning behavior/experience that brings a person, a couple or a family to therapy, is a part of the puzzle, not the whole problem. We will work together to identify patterns that no longer serve and embolden the inherent strengths within the person or their relationships.

One of the most critical components of effective therapy is developing a connection with your therapist. My top priority is making people feel comfortable in sessions and working towards achieving the different goals they have for therapy. My clients are able to share their thoughts and experiences through a non-judgmental and safe environment that I strive to cultivate. I often hear people in therapy say “I don’t know what to do. My anxiety is controlling my life.” Others have said, “My depression is so debilitating” or “I just need someone to talk to because I feel my relationships are spiraling out of control.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Rockville are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Rockville then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Rockville, or Child Psychologists in Rockville.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Rockville psychologists specializing in EMDR.

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. Psychologists in Rockville specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. 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?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
