Through evidenced-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ) -- the "gold standard" of anxiety treatment - I help people overcome panic, worry, phobias, and OCD.
*I'm not accepting new clients at this time* Are stress and anxiety are getting in the way of the life you want to lead? Do you feel tense, overwhelmed, and stuck in your head much of the time? Maybe you struggle with physical symptoms like headaches, insomnia, and digestive problems. But you don't have to live like this forever! The right treatment can help you move beyond the fear and worry that is holding you back. In therapy, I can help you understand how anxiety hijacks your brain and body and how you can stop it from getting the upper hand.

My approach to practice focuses on a combination of a problem-solving perspective, cognitive behavioral therapy as well as structural family therapy.
My calling to this career began when I was young and discovered a passion for helping others. My desire to grow and develop in a people-based service has only matured as I have. One of the most important aspects of this industry for me is the creation of a safe space where both me and my clients can bring their authentic selves to sessions. Through my experiences in life and as a social worker I have developed skills necessary to create a safe and productive environment for children and adults alike.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and Sex Therapy.
*I CURRENTLY HAVE LIMITED OPENINGS* Feelings of anxiety, depression, and grief are totally normal responses in these difficult times. My goal as a therapist is to guide clients through whatever is keeping them from living their happiest lives — whether the issue is more recent/due to COVID-19, or a deeper issue that has been draining someone’s energy for years (or a lifetime). I operate from a collaborative, strengths-based perspective to help clients understand their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I help clients develop strategies to mitigate anxiety, depression, and trauma/PTSD symptoms that interfere with their well-being.

I lean toward a cognitive -behavioral approach, always keeping in mind that individuals are part of larger systems of relationships.
Sometimes it helps just to have a caring nonjudgmental person to talk to and bounce ideas off. Sometimes, people need a gentle push along with clear steps to take to make things better. After over 35 years working with clients from children to adult, public and private settings, I have learned what differences to respect and what common themes and needs to honor for all human beings. Throughout my career as a counselor/psychotherapist, my strength continues to be my ability to understand human nature. I share with my clients knowledge, respect, and guidance. It is a two way learning process.

We will also develop tools to change behaviors and thoughts that keep you stuck ( CBT ).
Adversity, while a common experience, is not easy to navigate. Due to ongoing problems, life transitions, or acute events you might feel anxious, depressed or distressed. Experiencing isolation, distraction, sadness, changes in appetite, sleeplessness, irritability, worry, and/or other changes can take a toll on different areas of life. Relationships might be the source of your problems or are being negatively impacted by your stress. Our work together will improve how you feel, increase understanding of yourself, and identify long-term solutions.

I have been in private practice for thirty years. I work well with families and adolescents. I tend to be more directive and confrontational in my counseling methodology. Having been in the U.S. Marine Corps and combat tested, I work well with those suffering from PTSD. I use cognitive behavioral therapy as I believe it gets to the point and allows one to make signifiant changes quickly. There are two things we do - think and behave. Change the way you think and behave to more positive and we have a positive outcome.

I draw my therapy techniques from researched and empirically supported theoretical approaches; namely, Cognitive Behavioral, Emotionally Focused, and Solution Focused Therapy approaches.
As humans, we experience pain, loss, or difficulties in our lives as individuals and in our family relationships. We make our best efforts to cope, adapt or resolve these trying experiences on our own. But sometimes, we get stuck or they are too great to endure alone. I believe the therapeutic relationship is a safe place, free of judgement, invested in exploring, healing, and growing. Together, we can work on the interpersonal, emotional, psychological, and spiritual issues that hinder you and your relationships from reaching full potential.

Exhausted adults raising worried and distracted children are welcome here! I truly enjoy working with parents, helping them truly see and understand the special spark their children possess. Working with children and adolescents energizes me - their words, actions, or inactions powerfully communicate if we are curious enough to wonder. I employ a humanistic approach with a down-to-earth style, engaging in talk, play, art, and movement as well as cognitive behavioral interventions. I believe in educating my clients through the therapeutic process and am committed to bringing the best evidenced based approaches into our work.

If you are new to therapy, reaching out for help is an act of courage and a demonstration of your inner strength and hope for a better tomorrow. If you are experienced with therapy, you have developed your lists of likes and dislikes based on your experiences in therapy. I know that therapy works from my own life's journey, and I have confidence therapy will work for you. Now the task is finding the right fit. I want to meet with you for a "no cost," 15 minute chat to see if I am a good fit for the situations in your life that are motivating you to seek help.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Silver Spring or for a Silver Spring CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy.
