Areas of focus include, life transitions, grief and loss, depression , anxiety, family and relationships issues, and care.
I believe therapy is a safe space where you feel seen, express and process emotions, and develop the tools to live a liberated life. Life can present a host of challenges that may make it difficult for us to thrive but this does not have to be your truth. Many of these challenges may have even existed before you were born, which has been described as generational trauma. In therapy, you can develop an awareness between the cultural and social context of your life and the psyche.

The clients I see generally have concerns around relationships, anxiety, depression , social phobia, grief and bereavement, academic performance, and self-esteem.
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.

Metro area's best psychotherapists for PTSD (Washingtonian Magazine), I specialize in recovery from trauma (childhood abuse/neglect, accidents, violence), relief of anxiety and depression , and successful movement through life transitions (young adulthood, midlife issues, divorce, loss, cross-cultural adjustment).
My goal is to provide a safe, supportive environment in which clients can let go of old baggage and move forward in their lives with optimism and confidence. I work in a collaborative style that enables clients to draw on their own strengths and experiences, as well as on my expertise. My approach is pragmatic, drawing on whatever tools will help my clients to most effectively meet their goals. I delve into the past only as needed to improve current functioning or to help my clients make sense of their own stories.

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!

Anxiety, depression or panic attacks signal the need for mental health services; analytic methods get at the underlying issues to resolve the symptoms.
My work begins with taking the time to understand each, unique individual. This collaborative, compassionate yet thought provoking process is called "the talking cure," and it can be life changing. I am a curious listener, and through our weekly conversations you will learn to reflect on what you are experiencing differently - this is why psychotherapy works. I am always sure to provide a safe and respectful environment in order to change maladaptive patterns of thinking, behaving or feeling that stem from past experiences and underlie presenting symptoms, while working on practical solutions to immediate problems.

I work with teens and adults to untangle and simplify your responses to life, clarify what is most meaningful, and make changes. You have worked hard to succeed, to be your best, but you never feel like it’s enough. It’s exhausting! We gently explore areas such as past or present relationships, depression , anxiety, chronic pain, burnout, trauma, unhealthy alcohol use, grief. As we work together I’ll help you hear yourself, teach you new skills, and support you to change patterns that are no longer helpful. I am also available to complete forensic psychological evaluations for purposes of immigration cases.

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.

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step". For many people therapy represents a first step toward changing their lives for the better. Life's challenges and unexpected obstacles can create stress, anxiety, depression , and relationship conflict. I work collaboratively with individuals, couples and families to help them weigh options, increase self-awareness, change destructive habits and pay closer attention to their feelings and behaviors. My office provides a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental environment that allows clients to feel safe and to genuinely express themselves.

I believe the most important thing about therapy is empowering you so that you can make conscious choices about your life. My style is active and involved. Working collaboratively, I can help you define your goals and see what is causing your pain, anxiety, depression , low self-esteem, and problems in relationships. As a child, you learned ways of coping with your environment that were safe for you at the time. Those coping behaviors became habitual but, as an adult, no longer work for you and interfere with your happiness and your ability to function at your highest level.

As a psychotherapist, I have more than 30 years experience providing clients a safe, non-judgmental environment where issues can be explored and difficult feelings can be identified and expressed. I specialize in working with individuals and couples whose difficulties in early relationships have created corresponding difficulties in the present, including feeling locked into negative patterns of relating, depression , anxiety, and loneliness.

I work with clients struggling with anxiety, depression , trauma/vicarious trauma, relationships, adjustment issues, self-esteem, grief, or problems at school/work.
My approach is geared towards helping clients make choices and relate to others in ways that reinforce their feelings of autonomy, fulfillment, and peace. We engage to explore current situations and the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and then develop strategies to help better manage situations or make decisions. Strategies we explore may include short term action plans as well as longer term resilience building to manage ongoing challenges. I will work with clients to develop new ways of interpreting difficulties, understanding others, and communicating that are in line with their own values and hopes.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Takoma Park. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
