Sex and relationships are an integral parts of our lives. However, miscommunication, self-perceptions, and misguided expectations can prevent us from having the connections we want. Although our frustrations can seem insurmountable at times, change is possible. Looking for a therapist is a positive first step. Whether you are looking to gain personal insight, develop coping strategies, or improve your relationships and sexual functioning, we can work together to achieve your goals. I work with individuals and couples and am licensed in VA and DC.

Over the course of our lives, each of us develops specific ways of thinking and behaving that allow us to cope with difficult life circumstances. Sometimes the habits that were once helpful to us can become limiting and problematic when our life circumstances change. This can lead to a feeling of being stuck or lost and, in some cases, symptoms of anxiety and/or depression. Medications can be helpful to address some of these symptoms but it is also important to understand and re-work old ways of thinking and relating when deeper and more lasting change is desired.
