"Alleviating symptoms of emotional distress (such as anxiety or depression) is only the 1st stage of healing. Once people heal, they automatically start to expand their perspective on what they truly desire to be fulfilled. I help my clients to gain more fulfillment by empowering them to develop intuition into their own healing and fulfillment needs. My mission is to help people use emotional challenges as insight for self-growth and evolution. My holistic approach shows people how to get more Balance, Connection and Trust in themselves and life path in order to heal from the past, open to presence and reinvent their future."

"TeleHealth Offered** As a counselor, I provide a safe place where one can explore problems, questions, issues in a way that has the potential to lead to new emotional, practical, or other insights. I bring a sincere interest in others and respect for diverse life paths, choices, and challenges. I am a very good listener. As a therapist I am in a position to be objective, I am not a friend and therefore have no ego in counseling conversations. I seek to understand the problem in your own words, and help create collaborative windows for exploration and change. Eventually, everyone has to be to themselves, I don’t overstep my role. "

"Grief is a natural response to a bereavement or a loss of any kind, but the distress you understandably feel today need not be incapacitating or unnecessarily prolonged. My approach will help you come to terms with your new reality, while retaining a healthy and positive psychological relationship with the loved ones you have cherished, but who are now no longer physically present. We will work together to establish new strategies for living a fulfilling and joyful life - a life that can be continually enriched by the happy memories of times gone by. A life of gratitude, rather than regret."

With a therapist's help, however, our symptoms can also become an opening to a new way of living, even an opportunity for a new beginning. Our symptoms ask us to seek help with the hope that we may learn to better help ourselves. With proper support we may come to see that our symptoms and difficulties were the first steps of a healing journey, the first sparks of a lifelong process of learning. "

No matter how difficult your past, though, I believe that it is not set in stone. I lead with compassion and offer a space where people can begin to explore their internal world, not as something to be afraid of or dismiss, but something to acknowledge and tend to. As a result clients report feeling more comfortable being authentic in relationships and experience a sense of connection to themselves and to the world around them. "

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 District of Columbia, 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 District of Columbia 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.

Please discuss with the professional the app you'd like to use e.g. Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Professionals sometimes prefer HIPAA tailored apps such as Zoom, VSee or Doxy.me.

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

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