Are you a professional in the DC metro area, thriving in some areas of your life, but feeling "stuck" or "in the dark" in others? Are you grappling with a recent loss, a major decision or life transition, trauma, grief/loss, or symptoms related to anxiety or depression? Do you want more for your life, your career, your relationships? Sometimes the things that happen to us can lead to negative beliefs about our selves/our world-- which seem to get in the way of living the lives we've always wanted. I can help you untangle these beliefs.

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 believe individuals come to talk to a therapist when in emotional pain-- sadness, fear, loneliness, depression, traumas, and uncertainties. I want to help people express their deep concerns and learn what emotional conflicts and transitions are causing discomforts. Understanding inner experience is very helpful with a psychoanalytic therapist who creates with you a trusting place for speaking. Knowing oneself deeply can bring about transformations in the way you feel, have a relationship, and are able to work and create. I look forward to speaking with you and listening to what you need to talk about.

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.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 20814, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20814 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20814

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20814 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20814 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20814 or family therapy in 20814.
