I also incorporate mindfulness meditation techniques in my work as more recent research has indicated the efficacy of these techniques in treating anxiety, depression, and other difficulties.
I have 25+ years of experience in treating anxiety disorders (such as OCD, panic disorder, and phobias), depression, and difficulties related to psychological trauma. For the past 13 years, I have also been treating eating disorders and trichotillomania. I work primarily from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. This involves my client and me working as a collaborative team to determine what skills it would be useful for my client to learn and practice. This process tends to reduce distress and facilitates achieving a greater sense satisfaction, happiness, and meaning in life.

I take a holistic, interpersonal approach in my work with clients, drawing on cognitive behavior therapeutic (CBT) interventions and motivational interviewing methods while integrating mindfulness and breathing strategies.
Living with purpose, meaning and happiness calls for self-compassion as you work to heal and grow. I believe we each have the innate ability for personal development that is enhanced when we are in a safe and supportive relationship. It can be hard to ask for help so I work to establish a strong, trusting relationship where needs, experiences and goals can be explored and worked on without fear of being judged. I work with adults experiencing a broad range of concerns including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, relationship issues, attention/concentration issues, and changing life circumstances.

I believe every person has the innate ability to heal and grow. I believe that we can best do so when accompanied compassionately along our journeys. Through increasing self-awareness, cultivating our inner and external resources, and understanding the interconnected influences of mind and body in our daily lives, we can transform through painful times and arrive into greater and deeper capacity for relationships to ourselves and with others. I specialize in working with adults through trauma healing, grief and loss (including that of beloved animals), LGBTQIA+ identities and relationships, depression/anxiety, and life transitions.

I am glad you've decided to 'take the leap' and get support. At some point in our lives, most of us find ourselves caught in unproductive habits or patterns that are difficult to change. We are often hard on ourselves, but most people change more easily with support and compassion. I'm happy to offer that.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Silver Spring with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Silver Spring can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Silver Spring MBCT therapists.
