Primary focuses of my treatment include: Child and Family Therapy, Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), and more insight-based and relational therapy such as through an Intersubjective approach.
ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. IN-PERSON AVAILABLE. In-home sessions available for children and families 0-8 years old. Just as each individual is unique, I see treatment as unique as well, meaning no single therapy approach can claim to be the solution to every individual that walks through my door. For as unique as you are, together we can make sense of your concerns, work towards your goals, and the quality of life you want and deserve. I have experience working with individuals across ranges of age, race, gender, socioeconomic status, and reasons for treatment.

As humans, we all experience hurt, overwhelm, and uncertainty at some point in our lives. Usually, when someone comes to therapy, it’s once they have tried everything and nothing has worked. They feel defeated and lost. My calling is to serve those who are in the dark and need assistance finding the light. I believe that unresolved trauma and other issues can hinder progression in life and cause us to become trapped in areas of our lives that we are unsatisfied with. Because of this, I work diligently to help connect the dots between past and present experiences to facilitate understanding, acceptance , and growth.

In addition, I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), a mindfulness based cognitive therapy.
There are times when things are not going as well as we'd like in our family, social or work relationships. You may feel alone, depressed, anxious, or have conflict or discomfort with those you care about. In my psychotherapy practice I help couples, individuals & families restore their sense of well being and connection. People learn how to be more present and intentional about their interactions and decisions, in accordance with what is most important to them. Partners learn to be safely available to each other through a dialogue process that teaches more effective listening, deeper understanding and empathy.

I utilize an integrative approach drawing from Cognitive Behavioral and Acceptance and Commitment therapy.
Does worrying keep you up at night or prevent you from feeling present in everyday activities? Is it a struggle to shut off the thoughts that take your attention away from the things that matter most? Or do you frequently feel you are engaging in life with a "smile" on your face that does not match what's going on inside? These overwhelming feelings of anxiety or depression could be due to a recent life change or they may have been weighing heavily on you for some time. In a warm and supportive environment we will address these concerns together.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Rockville or for a Rockville ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
