"Worried Well" describes those who are dealing with life the best they can in spite of anxious thoughts, depressed moods, overwhelming stress, or grieving. Juggling demands of work and home, struggling with relationships or divorce or a loved one's addiction, or experiencing significant losses can make anyone doubt life will get better. Some feel guilty or selfish for experiencing these thoughts and feelings. Many question God or harbor anger and resentment toward others. Some are simply numb and can no longer find joy in the journey. You are not alone!

If you are struggling with an issue in your life and you feel "stuck", you know how hard it can be to ask for help. You may have tried therapy in the past and it had some benefit, but you are ready for a different approach. Have you ever thought, "I get what my therapist says about my anger, sadness, anxiety or trauma, but it doesn't change my pain"? You want to work through your issues because it's draining to spend so much energy keeping them contained, just to get through the day or week. Then you may want to try therapy with me.

There's unexpected opportunity in the current crises to free ourselves from old patterns so we can act effectively in our personal lives & the world . What if you felt inspired & energized to be your best self, instead of feeling even more drained & overwhelmed? Careers, romantic & family relationships are all complicated by new anger, grief & fear. We don't have to settle for the same old thing with partner, children, parents, colleagues/work, even systemic racism & injustice. The surprising truth is it's the web of relationships keeping us stuck. That means we can stop blaming self or others & shift our part for better results.

The goal of every client who comes to treatment is to resolve the existing crisis or trauma, manage anxiety, reduce depressive and other symptoms, and return to a state of being that better reflects their optimal functioning. Clients who come to therapy are arguably the best suited to tell us what their needs are and where the gap exists between their needs and goals for their best life. Living with grief, loss, anxiety, PTSD, psych ache, relationship distress, trauma (including racial trauma), rejection, and mood disorders takes a toll, not only on everyday functioning but also on self-esteem, self-efficacy and self-care.

I have practiced as a professional counselor for a couple of years. However, while serving as a pastor I refocused my private practice toward a clinically-informed Biblical counseling approach about 3 years ago. As a regional pastor for a larger DC Church – where I currently provide shepherding oversight for 2,500 members and attendees – a significant part of my responsibility is the practice of Biblical counseling. My primary counseling areas of focus have been on helping distressed marriages, treating process and behavioral addictions, and emotional disorders such as anxiety and depression. I now help people change from the heart.

I believe in the human spirit and our capacity to make positive changes in all aspects of our lives, even in the face of adversity. By exploring our thought patterns, we can better identify feelings that affect our actions on a daily basis. We can then make effective changes that improve the quality of our lives, decreasing stress, anxiety, and depression and providing us with a more peaceful and joyful life. I also believe in the benefit of human interaction with other loving creatures; you will meet my little Yorkie-Poo therapy partner, Mojo, when you come to visit me. He loves children and adults.

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.

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?
