I have been providing psychotherapy for over 30 years to individuals, couples, and groups.Throughout one's life, feelings such as depression and anxiety can create a sense of loss of control. Life events such as the death of a loved one, divorce, or interpersonal conflict can feel overwhelming. My clients would say that I treat every one according to their particular issues, with respect, and with great support and understanding. I also teach at George Washington University Medical School and I am on the National Council of the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University. I provide supervision, as well, to other psychotherapists.

Therapy isn't education, and it's not advice-giving. Because people are different, elements of therapy require different healing for different people. It's the ability to speak your mind safely to someone who listens, listens intelligently, and cares is important. I believe a successful counseling experience depends on the therapist ability to understand and respect the unique concerns, background, and context of each patient. I am committed to achieving such an understanding in every counseling relationship.

I believe in our innate power to heal and grow from difficult life experiences. Whether you've experienced a trauma recently or many years ago, these experiences may continue to impact you in the present: physically, emotionally, psychologically and relationally. I offer a gentle, collaborative and affirming space to access and work through past events, however they show up, as well as for self-exploration and personal growth. I pay attention to the ways in which issues of identity (race, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, ability, size, etc.) may impact your experience.

I have been practicing for decades now - and still love my work as much as when I started. I specialize in individual, group, couples, and trauma therapy. Since we are born into groups and are both healed and harmed in groups, I often encourage people - eventually - to consider one - or not. I have long had a special interest in the existential issues we all face, such as how to create a meaningful life in the face of an increasingly isolating culture. My stance is mainly psychodynamic and existential, but I tailor my approach to the best interests of my clients.

I work collaboratively with my clients to honor who they are, help make sense of their emotional responses to daily experiences, and guide them to become more authentic in their relationships. My approach is nonjudgmental, reflective and oftentimes playful. During our sessions, I help clients make connections between current problems and past struggles. Understanding these patterns builds self-awareness and helps create more adaptive ways of coping with stress and relating to others.

Deciding to begin therapy can be a difficult step, but by building a supportive therapeutic relationship, we can understand what’s painful and troubling to you in a way that feels manageable. Maybe you’re not where you want to be in your life; you find yourself repeating familiar patterns and feeling stuck, or you feel overwhelmed by life transitions, anxiety, relationship struggles, loss, or addiction. You might find that talking to your family and friends isn’t helping you cope with your challenges as much as you'd like, and you realize you need a different kind of support.

Finding a therapist with whom you have a good fit can be a daunting task, especially when you are experiencing painful emotions and major life changes. I strive to create an environment where you can feel safe to express your most intimate thoughts and feelings. I believe psychoanalytic therapy and psychoanalysis can lead to deep and lasting change, and can help you resolve a wide range of issues. Learning more about yourself and how your past impacts your present can have many benefits, including more satisfying personal relationships, greater acceptance of yourself, relief from distress, and a richer experience of life.
