**Tweens and Teens only/Sólo adolescentes y pre-adolescentes* You're tired of blank-stare professionals who treat your kid like they're a diagnosis and not a unique human being. You're ready for a therapist who can relate equally to you and your tween/ teen . You've sat across the table as well-meaning professionals described your child as "defiant" and "disrespectful." You may be feeling this way about them too. You're ready for something different. Quick fixes have only gotten you so far and your family is ready for emotionally transformative experience. This is where I come in.

It is from this core relationship that a child, adolescent or young adult with self-esteem, anxiety, anger management, or other issues, can begin to feel comfortable and trust the process of therapy.
I am trained in a psychodynamic and relational approach that includes the use of play therapy, art, music, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness. I have spent the last 20 years working clinically with children and adolescents in school settings in Baltimore City, Montgomery County and Prince Georges County. I currently combine my work as a school counselor in a special education facility with private practice.

This may involve concerns about an underachieving or acting-out teen , a young adult child experiencing a "failure to launch", or a divorced person struggling to co-parent with and ex-spouse.
In my practice, I work with a diverse clientele: children, adolescents and adults from all backgrounds. My approach is practical and conversational as we explore together the stressors of daily living, relationship concerns, parenting issues, and in some instances, severe psychiatric disorders. Often, clients seek short-term interventions, though for some difficulties therapy continues for an extended period. I allow my clients to set the agenda for our work together and decide what sort of help is needed.

I provide affirmative, directive, solution focused, relational, insight-oriented therapy to services to adult and older adolescent populations and incorporate clients' faith/religion/spiritual beliefs.
I work with clients to understand and resolve the psychological impact that early life experiences have on self-esteem, relationships, identity/culture, trauma, and anxiety and/or depression in the present. Through a process of identifying, understanding and evaluating emotional states, thinking and behavior patterns we eliminate and replace unproductive habits with more adaptive patterns toward an increased sense of well-being and ability to thrive and function in a variety of settings, situations and relationships. I use theoretical approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), person-centered therapy and more.

From child or adolescent therapy to couples or group therapy, we offer the services that will help you and your loved ones lives improve dramatically.
How does anyone choose a therapist? The variety of options are daunting, and while many, many people have been to or go to a therapist, it is not a topic easily discussed, so it can be hard to find a recommendation. Many people resort to picking the person whose face looked nice, or went to a school they recognize, or work in a convenient location or accept their insurance. Often these techniques are sufficient, but when they are not it is a great loss, as it takes so much courage to look for a therapist in the first place.

Every day is filled with parenting battles that leave you exhausted and guilt-ridden, having lost your temper too many times. You ache for a more peaceful home and a loving relationship with your child or teen , but you don’t know how to get there. General advice and tips sound good on paper but they are not working with your child, and you don’t know why. Your energy and resilience are taking a serious hit. Worst of all, you are afraid that your child will be emotionally harmed by all the turmoil that goes on from day to day.

While the treatment needs for each adult, adolescent or child may be different, the goal is the same; that is, to understand better the meaning of one's thoughts, feelings and behaviors and through understanding, a chance for more lasting happiness and satisfaction in work, school, friendships and intimate relationships.
I have been in practice for over 20 years, working with adults, children and adolescents in psychodynamic therapy and psychoanalysis. The frequency and duration of each treatment depends on the unique needs of every person; for example, a college student may be seeking short-term therapy to deal with the transition from home to school or an adult may be seeking longer term treatment to understand a pattern of failed relationships. Children are often referred by family members or school counselors, who provide valuable background information to help determine the best treatment. Ongoing collaboration with parents and professionals is essential.

In my work as a therapist for the past 25+ years I have witnessed the incredible strength and resilience in people despite life's hardships, losses and traumas. I work with adults, teens and tweens to deal with life's challenges such as relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, adoption,parenting, and divorce. As people gain deeper understanding of themselves and their behaviors , they are often able to make changes to improve their self esteem, strengthen their relationships, cope with life's ups and downs,and achieve deeper satisfaction in their lives.

Are you or a loved one anxious and unable to find the words to explain? That anxiety may cause us to struggle with our communication, lash out in anger, act on impulses, get lost in our emotions, avoid tasks, distract us from success, and disconnect us from support systems. This is especially prevalent in the adolescent and young adult population among other struggles such as depression, ADHD, life transitions, chronic illness, OCD, and lack of self esteem. As a passionate therapist working with this population, I aim to help my clients win these battles so they can begin creating a life story that is meaningful & limitless.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Silver Spring and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
