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.

Do you wake up most mornings feeling depressed or anxious? Are your moods swinging- you have a short fuse- or are you shutting down? If yes, you could be suffering from depression & anxiety. The cause could be chemical-due to a family history or it could be situational-due to a loss or traumatic event. Traumatic events include becoming a caregiver to a family member with mental illness.

I think that it is really important to find a therapist who is a good fit for you with your unique needs. I tend to be pragmatic and problem solving while also helping my clients develop a deeper understanding of themselves, their relationships, personal strengths and behavior patterns. My style is professional, yet relaxed. I'm appreciated for being both compassionate and having a sense of humor in my work.

I work primarily with adult individuals, couples and groups. My work with couples is informed by training in the Gottman Method and Imago. For couples in which one partner is leaning out, considering divorce but not completely sure it's the best path, I offer Discernment Counseling.

We all face stressors in life that can become overwhelming. Feeling stuck with our own negative thoughts or anxiety about new changes; repeatedly engaging in the same fights with our partner or spouse; worrying that we cannot support our children in the way we want - these are all universal experiences. Everyone faces obstacles, but not everyone has to remain feeling helpless, hopeless, or stagnant. It is at these times when it makes the most sense to reach out for support and when therapy can be most effective.

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.
