You do not need to suffer to heal. As we understand the parts of our personality, we learn to relax our defenses by connecting to the vulnerability and inner wisdom behind a present challenge triggering our attention towards our inner protectors or vulnerable parts. Our wounds often present on the surface of everyday life, professionally, personally or with the ones we love as conflict, sadness, anguish and loneliness. In therapy, over time these moments become an invitation towards healing and profound inner connection.

Welcome, I am a clinically trained practitioner who has worked extensively in the mental health field for the past 25 years. I have a dedicated interest in helping clients deal with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and other issues that impact our ability to lead more fulfilling lives. Over the course of my career I've been able to help clients make meaningful changes and develop greater insight into what are some of the underlying dynamics behind their difficulties. There has been no greater reward in my experience than assisting someone with becoming more self-actualized in their life journey.

I believe in the sacredness of a thoughtful, co-constructed relationship between client and therapist. Empathy and non-judgement are foundational to my clinical approach, and I also believe in therapy as a dynamic process. As such, I encourage clients to embrace challenges, welcome humor, and acknowledge their humanity. Your history, needs, and desires are unique – your therapy should be too.

My work is built on the belief that people naturally want to heal and grow; sometimes we just need someone to help us channel those instincts for change. We need a space to hear our thoughts outside of our heads, a space to observe and examine our feelings and what we hold true about ourselves. You are the expert in your life, and the question I ask myself as a therapist is how can I provide a space and relationship that you can use for personal growth. Some of the most important values that I focus on bringing to that relationship are trust, openness, and curiosity.

My clients come from all walks of life. Some are young and some are seasoned with life's experiences. I have had the opportunity to work with individuals and couples who were struggling with identity issues, mental health issues, addiction issues (including sex, alcohol, drugs, work, porn, food, etc). Typically my clients come to therapy to find relief from their issues or the pain and discomfort their issues are causing them and/or a loved one. They need relief and help with handling their responsibility for the issue and addressing whatever they have the power to handle so that they can continue with a "good" life.

Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. Life can be overwhelming at times and it can feel as if you are not properly equipped to handle the difficulties you have to face. I believe that we all try to do the right thing, but sometimes old habits persist, unwanted feelings intrude, and we can feel like we are doing it all alone. If you choose to explore working with me, I hope to encourage your natural curiosity about your life, your relationships, and your current circumstances. I hope to encourage connections that lead you towards lasting change.

When we are struggling with emotional or physical pain, hope can be tough to come by. If you are considering psychotherapy, there is good reason to be hopeful. As an evidence-based clinical health psychologist, I feel fortunate to practice at a time when the science behind psychotherapy is in full bloom. I am particularly passionate about mind-body approaches that combine modern cognitive and behavioral therapies with the wisdom that ancient contemplative practices have to offer.

I am a licensed graduate art therapist and counselor and am excited to work with you using art therapy and other therapy modalities. My goal as a therapist is to support clients in making meaning and finding peace. My approach may involve anything from us working together to soothe your anxiety, to sorting through unspeakable trauma. I aim to create a space that is warm and devoid of judgement. I will walk beside you and explore with you, and other than the occasional gentle nudge, I won’t push you where you aren’t ready to go.

It can be hard to change our habits and ways of relating with ourselves and with others even when old patterns are causing significant emotional pain. For real change to take place, something beyond motivation and a commitment to change is often needed. What can make a real difference involves finding a receptive person and an accepting environment that fosters a deeper understanding of one's self. I strive to provide such a receptive and safe environment to my clients with the hope that they feel listened to, understood, and recognized in their desires to get to know themselves, to connect with others and to feel alive in the world

Feeling listened to with care, respect, and curiosity helps you gain clarity and self-understanding. Patients tell me they feel stronger and more confident through our work, and their relationships and careers often show the benefits. Together, we can examine and explore your life. We can untangle your strengths, conflicts and questions. We can identify things you keep doing even though they're not working for you. When we find issues interfering with your goals, passions, or relationships, we can work together toward change. More info at tppsych.com

I believe that therapy works best when there is a safe and supportive therapy relationship, where you can explore the issues that brought you into therapy, in a nonjudgmental environment. I also know that many people come to therapy to make some changes. For this reason, I combine traditional talk therapy with skills-based methods that teach you specific ways to address your concerns. I will work with you to meet your goals while also helping you to understand yourself better, and to understand the patterns that might sometimes get you stuck.

Searching for a counselor is the first step towards building the life you want. I believe therapy is best when it is a collaborative process targeted to help you achieve your goals in an effective and practical way, and I’ve seen first-hand how rewarding and empowering this journey can be – regardless of how challenging one’s circumstances may seem. Working together I can help you resolve unwanted symptoms, establish healthy coping skills, develop self-compassion, and achieve your personal goals. I look forward to exploring how I can support you through this process.

Could your eyes use a break from screen time? Would outdoor therapy help you reset your week? As a Certified Nature-Informed therapist, I integrate nature-based therapeutic methods into my work with clients. This approach supports rejuvenation through connecting with the present moment and with the senses in the natural world. Majority of sessions are held walking and/or sitting at parks and on trails in Takoma Park. Pushing beyond traditional confines of a physical counseling office or telehealth, together we can utilize space and time in nature to help work through stressors, anxieties, and life transitions.
