My specialties include trauma counseling using mind/body healing modalities such as EMDR, somatic processing and art as well as talk therapy approaches.
Do you feel depressed, anxious or disconnected to others? Does hurt from your past haunt you or disrupt your day? Do feelings of shame or engaging in maladaptive ways of coping make life that much harder? Sometimes life events have overwhelmed our mind and body's capacity to cope and to feel stuck in how to move forward. This can be due to past trauma or relational harm, all while battling heavy emotions. Whatever it is that has led you to this point today where you are seeking support, you are one step closer to connecting to your worth as a human and the freedom that can come from releasing the pain of your past.

If talking in therapy is difficult, I use a more experiential approach through art or sand tray therapies.
Are you struggling with anxiety or depression that is impacting your relationships and quality of life? Are you having difficulty balancing your life's responsibilities? Is your child or adolescent struggling with self-worth, trauma reactions, or problematic behavior? Whether you're a parent, a child, a student, a couple or a single adult, my goal is to empower you to look inward and grow from your experiences, as well as discover your strengths. I will seek to work with you to move you from a place of distress to a place of believing in your strengths, worth and resiliency.

If words seem inadequate, using art can help you discover your goals, strengths, and internal wisdom.
You’re doing the best you can do; it doesn’t seem to be enough. Sometimes you need extra support and guidance to meet the life’s challenges. During our sessions we collaborate to find the questions and answers to your concerns through a lens of self-compassion and self-acceptance. Taking a non-judgmental approach to psychotherapy, we explore your feelings, emotions, and thoughts. As you take this journey, you may find unhealthy patterns that influence your choices and actions. These can undermine your self-esteem and serenity.

I enjoy using Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Mindfulness, CBT, Play, Sand Tray, and Art Therapies; Theraplay, TF-CBT, and Attachment-Based Parenting in my work.
My clients are smart, successful people who want to create change in their lives. Does your life look good on paper, but you don't feel happy or fulfilled? Experiencing mild to moderate anxiety or depression? Maybe, like many, you suffered trauma, now interfering with your quality of life. You want insight and action, process and results, to feel and perform better. Maybe you are the concerned parent of a child, seeking help for emotional or behavior problems. You want a trusted therapist for your child who will include you in their treatment, and who will provide you with information and realistic strategies you can use at home.

I am trained as both a counselor and an art therapist. I like to work with clients who have difficulty identifying or expressing their emotions. Art therapy is a way of working that helps you to express and experience thoughts and feelings when words fail. You do not need any artistic skill to do art therapy - just a willingness to explore with a sense of curiosity. I am certified in Internal Family Systems and integrate this approach into art and sandtray therapy.

Taking the first steps toward change can be hard and I want to team with you every step of the way. I believe each person has the innate capacity to heal, and that a trusting relationship with a therapist can be a support in that journey. Therapy should be a collaborative process, where you feel comfortable asking questions and can build clarity as you work toward your goals. In my practice, I strive to provide a space where you feel truly seen and can share openly. I tend to weave self compassion, mindfulness, and art creation into therapy, as ways to cultivate emotional resilience and deepen self discovery.

Major life changes can be tricky! You feel like you're in a whole new world--it can be disorienting. Sometimes you don't know where to turn and you start questioning your past, and even who you are. Art therapy can help in these critical times, and I can help you navigate through regrets, doubts, and negative self-talk. Art is messy. Grief is messy. I’m willing to get my hands dirty and delve in with you. The best thing about art therapy is you don't need any art talent OR previous experience.

It may look like a craft class, but art therapy in Silver Spring is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. Silver Spring Art therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss.
