My practice focuses on providing supportive counseling to individuals, couples, and families struggling to cope with the challenges surrounding the end of life, serious illness, and grief . I work with a range of clients, from those newly diagnosed with a life threatening illness, to those struggling to cope with the often difficult effects of medical treatment, to those grieving the death of a loved one, whether the death was anticipated after a long illness or the loss was sudden and unexpected.

In addition to LGBT issues, I have a special interest in providing grief and bereavement work.
I have a laid-back style and focus on creating safe space. My approach is pretty eclectic. Although my primary work is with the LGBTQ community--I have a strong LGBT and social justice background--it is not exclusive. I enjoy working with people willing to push their boundaries and learn about themselves. I also enjoy working with people exploring all kinds of creativity. I focus on what you see as your strengths. Building on those strengths makes the most sense to me when working with you.

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.

For 15 years I have worked in clinical environments helping individuals of all ages and backgrounds, including persons struggling with loss and grief , experiencing voice-hearing, and LGBTQ homeless youth.
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.

I have a relationship-driven approach to helping clients live happier, more fulfilling lives. I rely mainly on psychodynamic, humanistic and existential perspectives. I have experience helping clients process grief , loss and trauma; strengthen relationships; set boundaries; and achieve general life satisfaction. I work primarily with adult individuals, couples and groups. My work with couples is informed by training in the Gottman Method and Imago. For couples in which one partner is leaning out, considering divorce but not completely sure it's the best path, I offer Discernment Counseling.

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.

I see clients for depression, anxiety, pain, insomnia, loss , and stress related to health and the healthcare system.
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 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’ve seen first-hand how trauma, grief and loss can affect the brain and behavior, and how therapy can strengthen resilience and begin healing.
'What worries you, masters you.' Do worries, stress and fears cause imbalance in your life? I work with individual clients to identify and reframe core beliefs and assumptions, and shift challenging patterns and behaviors. 'Love does not dominate; it cultivates.' Relationships require openness, curiosity, and trust. Couples counseling provides a nonjudgmental, distraction-free space to share and listen. Clients explore challenges, identify strengths, and mutually gain deeper understanding of themselves and the relationship. Couples therapy is self-pay only. I am licensed to serve clients living in Maryland and Virginia.

As a hospice social worker for many years, I have extensive experience in working with grief and loss issues, bereavement , family dynamics and challenges connected to caregiving, aging, dementia and chronic illness.
"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 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.

Other areas of special interest to me are pet loss issues, adult children of alcoholics, and couples' communication (I am a Certified IMAGO Relationship Therapist).
For the past 4 decades plus, I have specialized in LGBTQ issues. I currently focus on gender identity issues and assist my transgender clients with navigating their often challenging journeys. As an "out" cisgender lesbian practitioner, I strive to help my LGBTQ clients travel from a place of shame to pride. Much of our work centers on self- esteem and the ways in which homophobia and transphobia impact so many areas of our lives-including family, career, and our intimate relationships. I love animals and also do veterinary counseling and consulting. My style is interactive and casual. I highly value your confidentiality.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
