I work mostly with adults, with an emphasis on recovery from emotional, physical and sexual abuse or neglect, recovery from abuse trauma and post-traumatic growth. Trauma survivors often develop creative coping strategies, including dissociation, in order to tolerate abuse and to develop internal resources. These coping strategies are critical to survival and are well-respected in our therapeutic relationship. I also work with circumstances where there is an imbalance of power and lack of recognition of the individual's right to respect and dignity. I strongly believe that every person has the right to be treated with respect in all aspects of life.

Traditionally, therapy has been thought of as an intervention for those who suffer from serious emotional illness. However, therapy can also be a tool used to enhance life, even for those who seem happy and not in need of intervention. Fortunately there are no upper limits on the positive changes that can be made in our lives. My goal is to work with those who want to improve themselves, their circumstances and/or their relationships.

Things have a way of not working out the way they we thought they would. The stories of our lives begin in the families we are given with all of their foibles and experiences. Pages that become chapters of pain, trauma or loss can engulf the one that feels trapped in the narrative. After a plot twist of epic proportions, I left a 16-year career in the intelligence community and began a new chapter. I’ve had to confront the sources, rewrite the narrative, consult the author and find myself in the pages. The refinement process can be a horrific one but in the truth, freedom is found. Together, we can find healing.

Congratulations on taking the first step on your path to personal growth! At any age, seeking counseling requires strength and courage, and it is completely normal that you may be hesitant and have lots of questions. While the views regarding mental health are becoming more positive, the decision to seek help can still produce feelings of anxiety and hesitancy. Just know that the decisions that are often the most difficult or scary for us often lead us to a more positive, fulfilling path on the other side.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 21701, 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 21701 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 21701

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 21701 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 21701 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 21701 or family therapy in 21701.
