I am a mental health practitioner providing counseling for adults and seniors .
Challenges occur in everyday life; however, when those challenges seem insurmountable, counseling can be a wonderful way to assist you in moving forward.  I believe there is a power lying within individuals that promotes their ability to draw on their own knowledge and personal strengths to rise above those tough life challenges.

I have been a practicing psychotherapist for 25 years in Chevy Chase, working with adults, seniors , and older adolescents.
If you have concerns, worries or anxieties or feel overwhelmed sometimes, we can look at these together and work toward resolution in a relationship of trust, empathy, insight and honesty. I search for each person's strengths to enable them to have more control over their life. Most people have difficulty in relationships..........with friends, family members, or individuals in their work setting. We work together on improving communication to empower you to be more successful.

I see a variety of people across the life span, ranging from young children to adolescents to adults to seniors .
I am Board Certified in both Clinical and Neuropsychology, and my practice has evolved over the years to a primary focus on evaluations. Psychoeducational evaluations focus on academic skills and functioning, with ADD/ADHD, Learning Disabilities, and Autism Spectrum Disorders being of particular concern. These evaluations often lead to accommodations in schools and colleges and on standardized admissions tests. Neuropsychological evaluations examine the impact of psychiatric and neurological disorders on cognitive and emotional functioning. Cogscreen--AE evaluations are conducted to screen pilots and air traffic controllers.

Are you feeling depressed and anxious? Are you finding your life is in turmoil because you have to make a change? Maybe you are changing careers or jobs, you’re recently divorced, your home is now an empty nest, or you are retiring. These are only a few of life’s transitions that can bring on depression and anxiety. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, the therapy I use most often, states that A (Antecedent action or event) + B (our belief about that antecedent action or event) Consequences, (depression or happiness).

I welcome individuals, couples, and families, whether seeking self-enlightenment, coping, better communication, or unity. Though implied in the text, I extend a special invitation to the men.

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.

Do you live in a culture that is different from your culture of origin? Do you feel it's hard to be fully understood? Are you in the middle of a conflict with others? Sometimes, we feel lonely, lost, and disempowered when going through life transitions, good or bad. Transition could look like a divorce, a loss of a love one, a new cultural/sexual identity, or even an exciting new job. You don’t have to go through those transitions alone. Therapy is a safe space for you to explore the complex emotions come with those changes. If you are not sure what you are experiencing, therapy also allows you to get closer to the unknown.
