Ever wonder why even the most mundane matters lead into an argument with your partner/spouse/child? Why are they overreacting? Why am I getting triggered and responding the way I do? How come we always end up in this dynamic? Why does it seem that the punishment never fits the crime?! What will it take to finally feel understood in this relationship? Can I ever regain their trust?

Feeling chronic negative emotions such as sadness, anger, anxiety, or loneliness is often a sign that something in our relationships has gone awry. By the time we attend psychotherapy, the task of altering our relationships may feel difficult or impossible to navigate alone. As a psychodynamic therapist, I am interested in how your early relationships impact your personality, worldview, attachment, perceptions, and coping mechanisms. Through compassion, challenge and sometimes humor, I aim to help my patients gain insight, learn new ways of relating, and implement change in order to heal, grow and flourish.

Hello and congratulations on making the decision to take next steps! We all need help sometimes and it’s more than okay to ask for it. Life is really hard and you don’t need to make this journey alone. I am here to listen and walk with you as you go through the process of change. As we come across challenges in our lives, we often find ourselves getting caught up in repetitive loops due to past pains that constantly come back to haunt us. Our wounds can lead us to engage with ourselves and others in harmful ways, which have become a symptom of how we have learned to adapt and cope.

My practice, TogetherWell, was born out of my strong belief that opportunities for healing and growth are significantly enhanced by the strength of therapeutic connection and trust.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 20814, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 20814 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20814 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20814

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20814 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20814 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20814 or family therapy in 20814.
