Your decision to evaluate therapists today is a strong sign change is underway. I work to help individual adults and teens, couples, and families navigate relationship difficulties, behavioral issues, and unresolved emotional needs. My office is a place where clients can speak openly about their hopes, needs, and fears - with warmth, care, and authentic feedback in return. Our work can treat symptoms of grief, depression, anxiety, trauma, and addiction. Emotionally focused repair, cognitive insight, and concrete skills development can each play a role. My training emphasizes clients' experience in family, work, and other systems.

Drawing from evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), I will help you make sense of what makes you you.
Are you tired of starting each day stressed, depressed or lonely? Taking the seemingly simple (but often difficult) step of asking for help is likely to decrease those negative feelings. I work with adults who are coping with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, anger, difficulties in their personal relationships, and challenges in their professional careers.

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.

I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy, which I find particularly effective in my work with couples.
***Email is the best way to reach me*** Sorting through therapists can be overwhelming, and finding the right fit is so important. I want my potential clients to know that I think of counseling/psychotherapy as a collaborative journey of discovery, healing, and connection. If we work together, my goal will be to support you in accessing and utilizing your inherent strengths and resilience, while helping you to identify and resolve obstacles interfering with life-satisfaction. Through this process, my clients discover increased wellbeing and purpose in their lives, as well as transformation in their relationships.

Therapy models that influence my approach include Emotionally Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.
Often we wait until we have exhausted every measure before we seek professional help. You can start on your journey to healing, reconciliation, peace, and joy today. I believe that in times of adversity and struggle, we have the greatest potential for growth. It is often hard to see clearly how the difficulties we face will lead to positive changes, so instead we lose our way and get stuck in places of frustration, despair, and resentment. The change process is a journey-sometimes long and at times short. It is a process that gives us the opportunity to discover new ways of approaching our circumstances.

But as you take this first step, I will honor your trust with a relationship that is free of judgement and focused on finding your foundation. Whether you are coping with trauma, depression, stress, anxiety, life transition, relationship or marital issues, we can work together to make things better. I bring to the table a deep knowledge of a diverse set of treatment methods that allow me to tailor your therapy uniquely to your personality, challenges and life.

I specialize in helping couples navigate relationship issues, family difficulties, life transitions, and parenting challenges using emotionally focused therapy and from an attachment-based and trauma-informed perspective.
“I don't feel cared for.” “When I bring up the ‘hard stuff,’ I’m met with silence." “Whatever I give is never enough.” “Why do I feel so alone?” “We keep having the same fights.” “I just want to be heard.” If these statements resonate with you, I'm glad you've landed on my page! Navigating these struggles alone can be overwhelming. In couples therapy, I can offer effective and compassionate help for your relationship, tailored to meet the needs of your situation. Working together, we can develop the skills you need to move away from a cycle of conflict and frustration and move towards greater connection, communication, and intimacy.

Trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), I have a strong commitment to strengthen couples’ connections, helping partners open up with each other, & build/rebuild or revive their relationship bond.
Relationships are hard work and can be tough to navigate through. Just like our bodies, our relationships require regular maintenance to keep them running well. When life brings about unexpected challenges, it is best to repair them as soon as possible to prevent further complications in the long run. Oftentimes we can do general maintenance and repairs ourselves. Other times, despite our best efforts, we need someone to look at our relationships, listen to us and help us make the best decisions. I am committed to helping you gain insight into your relationships, resolve conflict and improve your relationship satisfaction.

With nearly 15 years of experience working with adults and couples, my clients regain a sense of control and contentment through the use of evidence based practices like CBT, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Mindfulness and EMDR.
Often times we find reasons to devalue our own needs because acknowledging pain is hard. I encourage you to take this moment to put your happiness and well-being first. People reach out to me when they feel less in control of their lives. When stressful changes in life leave them feeling restless at night; they aren't able to turn off their mind. They often feel on edge, as if they might cry or lose their cool at any moment. It becomes difficult to feel joy from their usual pleasures. When clients sit down with me they want to regain a sense of normalcy and peace.

Suffering from anxiety can be like falling into quicksand—the more you fight it, the deeper you sink. Do you feel lost in your struggle with anxiety or find it difficult articulate how you are feeling? Perhaps you tend to take care of others but can’t figure out how to take care of yourself? I believe you have the power within to change your life story and psychotherapy is the tool to help you lift yourself up. Imagine being the author and the main character in your life story, with the ability to create change and move towards a more meaningful life.

I CAN HELP YOU HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIP. PREMARITAL AND COUPLES COUNSELING. "Why does my partner overreact?" "Why do I get so triggered?" "How come the punishment doesn't fit the crime?" “Why can’t he be more supportive?” “Is anything I do ever enough for her?” While you are feeling hurt, you have an added layer of confusion. You simultaneously love your partner and even hope to stay in this relationship to keep your love, family, and dreams intact. You are torn in a tug-of-war of emotions and desire to feel understood, accepted, and embraced by your partner.

I believe that counseling can help you THRIVE. With compassion, warmth, and humor, I help people who want to change unproductive or unhealthy patterns in their behavior, and in their important relationships. I help individuals desiring to become stronger and healthier - often while experiencing crises or change in their personal or professional lives. My clients often struggle with issues that include anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, co-dependency, substance abuse, work related issues, life transitions. One of my passions is working with adults - partners, parents, ACOA's - who live with anxiety & frustration over a loved one's alcoholism/addiction.

With over 30 years of experience to offer, I'm pleased to say that most of my clients have been referred by their friends who are or have been clients. When mutual respect develops, it ensures the trust and comfort needed to address and resolve most problems. I have always felt blessed and privileged to be a therapist and to sit with someone who is grappling with some of the most meaningful aspects of their lives. When you contact me, I'll be happy to honestly explore whether or not this will be a good therapeutic relationship.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Silver Spring Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
