I often incorporate many mind-body approaches into therapy--including guided imagery, meditation, EMDR and relaxation.
I AM CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Over the past two decades as a therapist, I have witnessed the transformative power of therapy. The key ingredients are often the collaboration and connection in the therapeutic relationship as well as the willingness of clients to consider novel ideas and possibilities for their lives and then try out new behaviors/coping skills. I work well with adults of all ages, older teens, couples and even families, when it is helpful to include a larger system to discuss problems, consider changes or improve communication.

I work with each client to discover what they need to empower themselves using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Attachment Style and Inner Child work, mindfulness, & more.
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.

My primary modality is talk therapy (primarily cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic) but I am also trained in trauma treatment techniques such as EMDR and Somatic Experiencing.
My clients are adults, usually midlife or older. They come to me for help with a variety of issues, including: life transitions, parenting, caregiving, or relationship difficulties, mental distress such as depression or anxiety, alcohol or drug problems, or a desire to resolve past traumas. I am comfortable and experienced with clients who want to strengthen their own spiritual resources in therapy and welcome diversity of all kinds.

Traumatic and stressful life experiences have made it challenging for you to live life the way that you want. You find yourself struggling with thoughts like, " I'm not good enough", "I'm a failure", or the feeling that "something is wrong with me". You've struggled with anxiety or depression for as long as you can remember. Living this way is exhausting, and you want something different. Regular talk therapy can be helpful, but sometimes it's not enough. Brain- and body-based therapies, such as Somatic Experiencing, Brainspotting, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ( EMDR ) can help.

I do EMDR , CPT, CBT, and Schema therapies.
It's hard to know how to choose a counselor. I'm happy to meet for an hour or two at no charge to make sure it is a good match. Be aware that I accept Maryland and Federal Workers' Compensation. It starts with feeling at ease with someone, and feeling understood. I'm willing to be helpful for people who struggle with addiction, but I may need people to see an additional counselor for more focused help on this. One's thinking and beliefs are important, and certainly there is an emotional component. I find that people feel a lot better when they feel their lives are moving forward.

I am a certified EMDR Therapist.
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.

Trained in EMDR and other modalities, I have been able to provide counseling with very successful outcomes for adults in grief, anxiety, stress, relationships, past traumatic events, and family members working through death by suicide of loved ones.
When something in your past has an effect on your perceptions of your present situations and creates stress in your life you can benefit by talking about and working through your experiences which leads to understanding your thoughts, emotions and behaviors. You can begin to recognize, appreciate and use your strengths to work through those thoughts that bring hurt, pain or stress to you. When you recognize your strengths, you can learn how to use them to make the changes you desire in yourself so your life becomes more satisfying and fulfilling.

Lastly, I am trained in therapies most effective for healing trauma ( EMDR , CPT), restoring your hope.
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.

Hi, I'm a clinical social worker licensed in Maryland. For over 20 years, I’ve worked with individuals of various ages, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, who have suffered from mild to severe mental health disorders. I have an eclectic and conversational treatment style. I believe treatment relies on strong therapeutic relationships. The aspect of my treatment that I believe consistently helps my clients to achieve their goals, is my ability to use humor, strength , transparency and kindness to make it safe for them to be honest and kind with themselves about problematic patterns of behavior and thought.

I utilize play/expressive therapy and sandtray to enable children to express and work through their inner dynamics; teach mindfulness to increase regulation; work with feelings and sensations in the mind and body to help develop self-awareness and release and integrate distressing thoughts and emotions; and use EMDR .
I work with children and teens and their families. I address issues including problematical attachment with parents and/or caregivers, negative self-image, trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, oppositionality, poor communication and social skills, acting out behaviors, sibling problems, and difficulties in school. As a therapist, I establish a safe "container" in which to work with children and parents together in order to strengthen a child's positive sense of self, reinforce the family system and bonds of attachment, and promote behavioral and emotional regulation. I work with teachers and school administrators to help children learn and thrive in school

I work with clients primarily using EMDR , internal family systems, and cognitive therapy to do the repair work.
What if I told you that you can stop having anxiety, intrusive thoughts or that pit in your stomach feeling? You might think, ‘Doesn’t everyone feel like this? This is just life, right?’ The answer is no! You don’t have to carry this yuck around with you anymore. Change is possible with EMDR therapy. We all have life experiences that impact us in minor and major ways that leave a lasting impression on us. Imagine a life where you have lessened anxiety or depression symptoms. You can have less inner conflict, better decision making, and enhanced self-control.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Silver Spring or for a Silver Spring EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.
