I was pleased when one of my clients described our relationship as "a place where it is safe to be unsafe.
I believe it is possible for people to change. For over 25 years, I have been working with teens, adults and seniors, helping them reassess what they want out of life and how to get it, change their approach to work and relationships, and heal the emotional and spiritual pain of loss, anxiety and depression. My areas of special interest include: Couples Therapy: Resolving Conflict and Deepening Intimacy; Grief and Loss: Healing the Pain of Loss and Adjusting to Living--Washingtonian magazine has named me a Top 10 Grief Therapist; Chronic Illness and Care Giving: Balancing Reality and Hope

My special areas of expertise are anxiety, depression, relationship issues and personal development.
Do you feel you are not fulfilling your potential in life and love? Are there things you want to change about yourself, your situation, your partner? I use a multidimensional understanding of a person to quickly identify core issues. All people have strengths and gifts of which they are often unaware. Together we can uncover these strengths, develop new capacities and chart a course for the future. I'm an interactive, engaged therapist. I use a variety of techniques from cognitive, somatic and depth psychology, to promote self-awareness and emotional growth.

I believe that the foundation of therapy is built on a relationship between us, therapist and client.
Are you feeling frustrated, lonely, overwhelmed, or depressed? Does it seem like there must be more to life than what you are getting? Sometimes we just feel stuck in our lives. Old emotional wounds or patterns keep nagging at us, keeping us from feeling free to live authentically. Relationships can be one the most rewarding or distressing parts of our lives. Changing the way we relate to ourselves and to others is key. Therapy is a transformative process that can help us address our concerns about ourselves and others.

I have skill and experience with emotionally frayed or wounded people--who often present with anxiety, depression, anger, and/or relationship difficulties--guiding them towards healing and growth.
Are you weary of feeling lonely, tired, sad? Perhaps you're scared or confused and don't know what to do about your marriage--the two of you are almost like strangers, or you fight all the time, or you're facing infidelity? Maybe you know your child is troubled, and you're not quite sure how to be of help. A special strength of mine is healing connections--connections between people as well as personal connections to the inner self--whether I see you in a couple, a family, or as an individual.

Gradually each partner experiences, in and outside of sessions, a more emotionally open, responsive, and intimate relationship that feels good, healing, safe, rewarding, and energizing.

As a therapist, I am highly empathetic and aim to understand you and your personal experiences, providing a safe space for your work. With time, you will experience an increase in emotional awareness and openness, and improve your mental, physical, and relational, well being.

Deciding to ask for professional help with a personal or relationship problem can be a bit intimidating. Please feel free to contact me for a brief consultation to discuss whether or not I may be the best fit for you. If it seems that I'm not the best fit, I will gladly direct you to other resources. It's important that you feel safe, respected, and in capable, compassionate care. I work with individuals in an eclectic approach; that is, I integrate elements from several theoretical orientations to help people solve emotional problems, change behavior, and cope with stressful life circumstances, including relationship problems, work stress, and life transitions - to name a few.

Much of my work and interest has focused on moving beyond trauma and loss, which we all experience, whether large or small; codependency, women's and relationship issues , and cross-cultural understanding.
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.

Other areas of special interest to me are pet loss issues, adult children of alcoholics, and couples' communication (I am a Certified IMAGO Relationship Therapist).
For the past 4 decades plus, I have specialized in LGBTQ issues. I currently focus on gender identity issues and assist my transgender clients with navigating their often challenging journeys. As an "out" cisgender lesbian practitioner, I strive to help my LGBTQ clients travel from a place of shame to pride. Much of our work centers on self- esteem and the ways in which homophobia and transphobia impact so many areas of our lives-including family, career, and our intimate relationships. I love animals and also do veterinary counseling and consulting. My style is interactive and casual. I highly value your confidentiality.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Silver Spring relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Silver Spring.
