Life transitions are the focus of my practice. All of us are learning new ways of managing our fears and adapting to the limitations that the COVID 19 outbreak is placing upon us. My client experience includes significant work with individuals experiencing school/work and life balance challenges as well as pregnant women and new mothers who are adjusting to parenthood. Couples who are questioning whether they want to stay together and co-parents seeking assistance with parenting plans or parenting coordination benefit from my unique background in mental health and the law.

Individuals, families and couples realize, at some time, they need assistance to effectively deal with overwhelming life events, strained relationships, loss, anger, and life transitions. For over 20 years I have successfully helped people break self-defeating, unfulfilling patterns of relating and behaving so they can experience more joy, happiness and success in their personal and professional lives. I use a blend of psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioral and family systems therapy. My clients find me to be a very direct, open and engaging therapist, who provides safe space for even the most difficult issues and conflicts to be addressed and resolved.

Dealing with difficult life situations is harder when decision making is clouded by emotions that make us feel stuck or act in ways that lead to unwanted outcomes. By learning to think clearer and to safely express emotions, you will discover healthier ways to respond. I work with people whose blocked feelings cause physical and/or emotional pain. I help couples who are caught in problematic relationships develop clearer boundaries. I encourage self care. I help you challenge what gets in your own way. I also have expertise in helping ailing people facing end of life issues and welcome those who need to explore these concerns.

I believe in creating a safe, supportive space to understand oneself more deeply. As connection and trust evolve between myself and the client, a frank discussion about their identity, wishes, feelings, conflicts can be facilitated and understood. This can enable them make informed decisions regarding how to better navigate their lives. When a patient comes in crisis, I am also available as support, to help them return to a previous level of functioning. We try to learn the significance of this event, so as to use it as an opportunity to enrich the client's life.

Though your life may be good objectively; inside you are struggling and unable to enjoy it. You are sensitive, intelligent, and creative, but instead of valuing these parts of yourself, you've been self-critical. You compare yourself to others, and believe you don't measure up. Work is often stressful and unsatisfying. You may have relationships with a partner or friends, but you still feel lonely and isolated. Therapy can help you understand yourself better, and learn how to communicate in relationships -- both authentically and effectively. The goal is to help you feel more connected to yourself and to the people in your life.

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.
