**Flexible evening and weekend appointments available.** Therapy should have lasting impact and help you to create meaningful change in your life, for the long-term. I approach care with humor, compassion, and an open-mind. Change is hard, developing insight can be painful, and avoidance seems like a better idea on paper than it typically is. As a therapist I value your needs, your pace, and your goals. We can get there.

I have one goal in therapy: your transformation. Why cope with a problem if you can eliminate it? Healing both the problem and its root cause creates lasting change. While traditional talk therapy can produce positive results, I have a broader therapeutic toolkit to help you rapidly heal troubling thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. In a first session, you can expect me to connect with you quickly and get to the root of the issues that concerns you. My style is relaxed, non-judgmental, I'm active in sessions and focused on producing significant, impactful results in the shortest time possible.

As a licensed clinical psychologist I enjoy helping individuals, couples, and families from myriad backgrounds see their strengths and overcome their challenges in order to achieve the highest level of functioning possible. I particularly enjoy challenges and have shared success with clients and families in situations and coping with problems which had seemed insurmountable or had lasted for many years. Using an integrated approach, I make sure that whatever I do is in the best interest of the client and is effective, adaptable, and most of all realistic with respect to where the client is and their goals in treatment.

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.

My goal as a therapist is to help you understand and resolve the things that block you from happiness and emotional well-being. I work in a collaborative, interactive style that is both compassionate and challenging, and I ensure a safe and respectful atmosphere. I will work with you on practical solutions to immediate crises and problems; as well as understanding and changing maladaptive patterns of thinking, behaving, or feeling that stem from past experiences.

I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in helping children, adolescents, and their families. I have extensive experience working with preschoolers, school-aged children, and adolescents with social, emotional, behavioral, and educational challenges. My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, social difficulties, learning disorders, divorce, and loss. Kids are sometimes sad when they sit by themselves at lunch. Others may be frustrated when they are not picked for games. Children may not have the social language skills, impulse control, social judgment, and/or abilities to develop and maintain friendships. I help children and adolescents develop these skills in individual and group therapy.

Are you going through a transition in your life? Feeling stuck and find it difficult to move forward? Many times, when things do not go as planned or the way we hope, it can feel stressful, confusing and sometimes overwhelming. I specialize in helping individuals, particularly young adults, teenagers, and school-age children, in navigating these challenging transitions (e.g., struggling in school, failure to progress in college, experiencing anxiety or depression, etc.). I work with people who need more than just “talking” with a therapist. My approach to therapy is unique.

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.

The idea of going to therapy can be daunting and challenging for many…but it doesn’t have to be. (It can actually be pretty fun!) You tell me what you want, and I do what I can to help you achieve it. Sure, there may be challenging moments because I may push you out of your comfort zone at times, but I’m great at listening and understanding what my clients want and need.
