My adult and adolescent clients make rapid progress and love working with me because I use a combination of CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), warmth, and humor. I focus on solutions, not just problems, and am very successful at helping clients with anxiety and depression. Since I'm also a school counselor, I am highly skilled with young adults that have academic, executive functioning, and social/relationship issues. I check in frequently with all my clients to make sure I am meeting their needs and expectations. After all, therapy is an important investment. I want people to get their money's worth!

You may be: a teenager confronting challenges such as anxiety, depression, peer comparison, gender identity or sexual orientation; a family that needs support with general discord, parenting a child who is neurodiverse or LGBTQIA; or a woman feeling stuck or lost, managing anxiety or depression post-college, or during pregnancy, postpartum or infertility.
If you’re considering therapy, you may be in a time of stress or transition. My goal is to ease your access to psychotherapy by providing you or your family with confidential online therapy, from the comfort of your own home. While I work with clients of all ages in any stage of life, my specialties include teen and family LGBTQIA issues, prenatal/postpartum challenges, parenting children with special needs and working with women who feel “stuck.”

In my years of working with diverse populations, I've learned what we all have in common is difficulty at times with the human experience. Whether it's a mood disorder or debilitating anxiety or addiction, we suffer and need help at these times. From identity issues to discomfort in one's own skin, we know when we're not living fully. Our innate resilience and joy become buried under layers of defenses, but they're still there. Let's uncover them together. For your busy schedule and convenience, I offer evenings and weekend sessions.

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.

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.

All clients are unique as are all therapists. Research has shown that clients benefit the most from therapy, when there is a strong match between client and therapist. I encourage my clients ability to unpack and explore their worldview in a safe place. I am sensitive, to how considering new perspectives can be both scary and challenging. Courageously re-framing severe distress as a logical, biological and psychological response to environmental conditions, guides my practice. I work with adolescents, adults, individuals and families.

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.

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.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Takoma Park and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
