I enjoy supporting single/solo parents as well as partnered parents who are expectant, new, and experienced, through the perinatal period and beyond. I work with complex attachment systems, with adoptees and their families. Other groups I specialize in working with are individuals who identify as LGBQTIA, survivors of trauma, and those going through transitions such as separation/divorce. I have been both a teacher and clinical social worker in various capacities. I work especially well with younger people ages 12 and older: adolescents/teens, college-age students, and young professionals.

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 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.

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

'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.

What type of Takoma Park mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Takoma Park?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
