Hello. Thank you for visiting my page. I believe that you have the potential to heal and grow regardless of your age, gender, social status, experience, and depth of pain. My goal is to help you acknowledge and trust your own strengths to overcome any struggles. When individuals come to therapy, they may feel out of balance with difficult feelings, perceptions, behaviors, and/or thoughts. With a holistic view of a person as a complex being with different facets and strengths, I aim to facilitate my clients' self-awareness, self-regulation, self-expression, and self-exploration toward recreating wholeness.

The events of the past few years have taught us that we can't handle everything alone. We experienced unprecedented unemployment, isolation, and health issues. These experiences led many to depression, anxiety, anger, and fears. Many experienced hardships that they were ill-equipped to handle and turned to mental health professionals for the first time. Asking for professional help in mental health is slowly becoming as common seeking professional help in physical health.

Living with purpose, meaning and happiness calls for self-compassion as you work to heal and grow. I believe we each have the innate ability for personal development that is enhanced when we are in a safe and supportive relationship. It can be hard to ask for help so I work to establish a strong, trusting relationship where needs, experiences and goals can be explored and worked on without fear of being judged. I work with adults experiencing a broad range of concerns including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, relationship issues, attention/concentration issues, and changing life circumstances.

The days are getting shorter. We will soon be losing an hour. Less sleep, less daylight. I love winter, but it can be dark. Seasonal Affective Disorder generally waxes in winter and wans in spring. This is a gentle reminder to make sure that you're covered with therapy and your medication. For medication management, give us a call. Provide us with your full name and your email address. We will schedule an appointment for you as soon as possible.

On the outside, it looks like you have it all together. You have a good job, a stable relationship and a strong network of friends. But on the inside, it’s a completely different story. You’re always comparing yourself to others and feel like you never measure up. You feel like a fraud at work and are sure that someday you’re going to be found out. To make up for all the flaws you’re sure you have, you go out of your way to be accommodating and dependable. Putting other people’s needs before your own has become second nature. And you’re exhausted.

Our culture, identities, experiences of marginalization, and familial roles impact how we navigate the world and can make living authentically complex. Our unique experiences can leave us feeling misunderstood, alone, and plagued by worry. Life’s challenges can cause sleep issues, struggles with concentration, and increased guilt, shame, and irritability. Becoming empowered and confident comes with challenges, like isolation and changes in your relationship dynamics. I know how hard it can be to find someone who understands how your minority identities intersect and how your culture and upbringing impact your struggles and healing.

I CAN HELP YOU HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIP. PREMARITAL AND COUPLES COUNSELING. "Why does my partner overreact?" "Why do I get so triggered?" "How come the punishment doesn't fit the crime?" “Why can’t he be more supportive?” “Is anything I do ever enough for her?” While you are feeling hurt, you have an added layer of confusion. You simultaneously love your partner and even hope to stay in this relationship to keep your love, family, and dreams intact. You are torn in a tug-of-war of emotions and desire to feel understood, accepted, and embraced by your partner.

I have experience offering trauma-informed therapeutic services for survivors and alleged perpetrators. And I have offered counsel to many emerging adults struggling with fundamental childhood pain related to their upbringing and connected their experiences of racism, their ethnic origins, sexual orientation, gender identity, neurodivergence, and the many other multi-dimensional ways we can identify and be made to feel othered. As I understand trauma can be relational, as so should be healing. So where you may find value in intimate partner, familial, or group healing, I am happy to meet you and other willing participants there.

Because no two patients are alike, therapy should be tailored to each patient, rather than trying to treat everyone with the same theoretical approach. I believe that a therapist’s job is to guide the patient as they learn to change the behaviors and thinking styles that may have once been helpful, but are now getting in their way. Most importantly, I believe it is a therapist's job to teach their patients the skills necessary to eventually function independent of their therapist, allowing them to eventually leave therapy instead of being stuck with having weekly sessions for the rest of their lives!

What type of Silver Spring 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 Silver Spring?
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.
