I have tremendous respect for people who make the difficult decision to enter in to psychotherapy. I work collaboratively with older children, adolescents, and adults, in individual, couples, and family therapy. My goal is to explore collaboratively the troubles that have led them to seek treatment at this time. I try to provide a safe, non-judgemental environment, where one can develop insight to better understand and ultimately change behavioral and relational patterns that get in the way of happiness and fulfillment. I have extensive experience working with depression, anxiety, and trauma, as well as relationship difficulties and life transitions.

Teens and young adults are faced with more stress than ever in our fast paced world, let me provide a safe and relaxing space for you so that you may process, reflect, problem solve, and self discover. We can talk about anything you'd like, from school stress, friends issues or family concerns. If you're an adult you may be looking for support around big life transitions like a serious relationship, college, graduate school, new jobs, moving, or revisiting past issues that now seem to be popping up again. I also work closely with new and expecting and hopeful mothers struggling with issues of anxiety or depression.

Hello. If you are considering psychotherapy, a good "fit" with your psychologist is essential. I have been a practicing clinical psychologist for over forty years. During that time, I have also been a psychology professor at Montgomery College. My theoretical orientation is a pragmatic blend of cognitive, humanistic, psychodynamic and behavioral, but I am also a firm believer in the value of positive psychology. I try not to diagnose people, but rather work with the entire individual, especially with their strengths. I am not the "silent, blank-screen" kind of therapist.

*I am temporarily not accepting new clients* Post-traumatic growth, a term meaning that, not only was a person resilient in their ability to heal from an adversity, but that they were actually able to benefit from an adverse event by growing their psychological capacity to empathize, reframe and thrive after trauma. As a trauma specialist, I aim to focus on the beauty that can come after ugly things happen. It is my hope in the therapy room to encourage healing through curiosity about the self, expressive approaches to therapy and being an empathetic listener.

Having been trained to work with people across the lifespan has enabled me to integrate an understanding of the origins, development and resolution of behavior and relationship patterns which are presently holding the client back from important accomplishments or feelings of well-being in their lives, even though these patterns may very well have historically originated out of a functional need.

As a person experiencing anxiety, a stressful life transition, overwhelming emotions or symptoms of trauma, you are motivated to feel good again and reclaim your life. You’ve tried to fix it on your own, but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You’re worried things might get worse, or maybe they already have. You know healing is possible, but it seems out of reach. Choosing to start, or restart therapy can be scary! You want to make sure you select the right person who you can really connect with and feel confident has the expertise to help.

Out of Network Therapists
An out-of-network Therapist in Bethesda has not agreed to any set rate with your insurer. Your plan may require higher co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance for out-of-network care and you may need to pay the difference between your insurer's allowed amount and what the Therapist charges.

The costs for a Bethesda out-of-network Therapist also depend on your type of plan:

In a Health Maintenance Organization, or HMO, or Exclusive Provider Network, or EPO, you generally have to pay the full cost of any out-of-network care.

In a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Point-of-Service (POS) plan, you will usually have to pay a higher deductible and or a higher co-pay plus a higher percentage co-insurance plus, the difference between the allowed amount and your provider's actual rate.

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