I have been providing psychotherapy for over 30 years to individuals, couples, and groups.Throughout one's life, feelings such as depression and anxiety can create a sense of loss of control. Life events such as the death of a loved one, divorce, or interpersonal conflict can feel overwhelming. My clients would say that I treat every one according to their particular issues, with respect, and with great support and understanding. I also teach at George Washington University Medical School and I am on the National Council of the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University. I provide supervision, as well, to other psychotherapists.

I believe we come to be fulfilled in life through our relationships--to ourselves, each other and the world around us. Emotional distress is a signal that one of those relationships is in trouble and needs attention. My approach to restoring wellbeing emphasizes empathy, compassionate communication and thoughtful action. A person who reaches out for professional help is making an important first step in the process of healing, learning and growing as a person. Collaborating with a therapist means establishing a trusting and respectful relationship and then exploring together a path to personal wellbeing. I'm committed to that.

"Picking up the telephone to make an initial appointment to see a psychologist, can be difficult for many people for various reasons. One may be feeling wounded, lost, or stuck. I am dedicated to helping children, adolescents, and families begin to heal and get "unstuck" by freeing themselves of distressing and sometimes debilitating feelings such as depression, anxiety, and feeling out of control. I believe awareness and insight into your child's feelings and behaviors and your feelings and behaviors, is the great gift of psychotherapy. At its best, psychotherapy is a rewarding, productive, and at times, fun experience."
