I encourage people to choose a therapist with whom they "click", because the relationship itself is essential to transformation.
I connect deeply and empathically with my clients, and challenge them towards greater self-awareness that leads to happiness and peace of mind internally and within relationships. Individuals and couples inevitably reach periods of frustration and conflict that signal the need for change. Whether these problems are grounded in past loss or current misfortune, outside intervention can offer immediate relief. I specialize in treating mood disorders, couples in gridlock, and adult children with a legacy of trauma, neglect or codependency. Working with adults and couples, I approach difficulties compassionately and non-pathologically. Psychotherapy helps restore emotional balance and well-being.

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.

How do you go from feeling overwhelmed and lost to clarity and a solid sense of self? Contemplating this journey informs my work as a psychotherapist. In my experience, the single most important factor that leads to significant change is the development of a trusting client-therapist relationship . This allows trust in new possibilities,and seeing yourself differently and considering this new sense of self. I liken therapy to reorganizing heavy furniture in a room and in some cases getting rid of pieces. The furniture represents the client's view of self. With acceptance and empathic curiosity, change can begin.

I am a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner committed to mental health treatment promotion and prevention. With a psychodynamic foundation, I integrate Internal family systems(IFS) and attachment theories to my treatment approach. This approach is successful with clients seeking help with adulting, relationships, families, and parenting as well as individual therapy. As an open and affirming Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner I've learned that the integration of these talk modalities are helpful for navigating life processes. Talk therapy undergirds the treatment relationship and when necessary may be complemented with medication management.

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.

Life events and transitions can hit you hard. You don’t have to keep putting yourself last, feeling guilty for not meeting expectations, or let the fear of failure or change keep you stuck. Are you starting/ending a relationship , beginning/graduating from school, working on "adulting", having a baby, making a job/career change, grieving, retiring, or experiencing any other change? You can build resiliency and believe you are worthy of the life you want by learning to practice your values, self-compassion, simple coping skills, and gaining a new perspective. You are already taking a brave step forward by seeking help.

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.
