When your own best thinking isn't helping you move forward through a challenge, finding a skilled therapist is a courageous thing to do. As a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, I work with individuals and couples of diverse backgrounds and experiences to identify life patterns that get in the way of positive growth. I have the experience of over 20 years of practice informing all I do. I work best with individuals and couples who are motivated to take an active role in their therapy experience and apply what they learn outside of the therapy hour.

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.

Breathe! I got you...In a world filled with constant change and uncertainty it is easy to forget to breathe, slow down and check-in with yourself. The daily grind, career dissatisfaction, family demands, strained relationships, past and current trauma, self-doubt…the list goes on. Let me be your guide on a journey into true freedom and overall satisfaction in all areas of your life. We will explore your historical blueprint and recreate a design that is authentically yours. A blueprint guided by fearlessness and healing rather than fear, self-doubt and recycled patterns that no longer serve you.

I help people to live more engaged and fulfilling lives. I will help you to understand and change unhealthy patterns of behaving that you have developed because that is how you've always done things. Together, through inquiry and exploration we will think about what you know about yourself that you do not let yourself KNOW.

As someone that struggles with unwanted or intrusive thoughts, feelings, sensations, or urges, you often find yourself spinning in circles. You are constantly hounded by doubt and spend most of your time just trying to keep your head above water. You know that you are being illogical, but just can't seem to shake the feeling that something bad is going to happen. It can be scary to reach out for help. You may worry that you will be judged if you tell anyone about the content of your thoughts, so you suffer in silence. So often it seems that you have to carry this burden alone.

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.

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 specialize in working with the passionately curious, fast learners, and the overthinkers. Does this sound like you? If so- keep reading. You’re naturally good at what you do, but underneath the public successes are often deep personal struggles. You are known for your strengths, but haven't necessarily learned how to work with your areas of difficulty. Does it feel like you’re only one struggling with these issues? Connecting with others who are knowledgeable about what you are going through can be incredibly healing. I’m here to help.

You are capable of creating the change in your life that you want to see. Sometimes we need help along the way but this does not negate the fact that we all hold our own keys to the solutions we look for. Therapy could be one way to access that assistance. It is all learning and unlearning, and the beautiful thing is you can’t get this wrong. As a therapist, my goal is to support you in the next stage of this growing process. I provide a safe and non-judgmental space to unpack traumas and triggers as well as discover untapped or likely forgotten gifts and strengths.

Sometimes we need an objective, non-judgmental person to listen. Family and friends can be wonderful sources of love and support, but sometimes it isn't enough. I understand that the idea of sharing your very personal and painful thoughts and experiences can be uncomfortable. For that reason, I take a compassionate and empathetic approach with all my clients. I strive to build a strong, collaborative, and trusting relationship that allows my clients to feel comfortable and relaxed.

My clients would likely say I am open-minded, down-to-earth, and empathetic. 20 years of experience have taught me that respectful understanding is key in working with clients who seek to understand their circumstances, proactively engage in their lives, and feel better. My main area of work has been supporting adolescents and adults with emotional difficulties, traumatic events, decision making, and coping skills for life transitions (school, career, "adulting”). I work in tandem with clients as they identify their challenges, needs, and goals. My approach, while kind and interactive, encourages self-reliance.

What type of Rockville 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 Rockville?
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.
