I completed advanced psychotherapy training at the Washington School of Psychiatry and have training and supervision in a variety of approaches (psychodynamic, attachment, and Jungian), and am holistic in my approach.
I am both an art therapist and licensed professional counselor in private practice in Washington, DC. I teach courses to graduate students in art therapy and counseling. Although I specialize in helping both children and adults with issues of trauma, family, and relationship, people bring a wide range of concerns from personal growth to serious mental illness. Before entering private practice, I directed an activities therapy department in an army medical center where military members and their families were hospitalized for personality and mental disorders. At this facility, I also worked with children and adolescents on a medical ward.

I have been trained in Humanistic/Existential, Psychodynamic, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and draw upon these approaches to best address my client's concerns, goals and disposition.
For many, this current period of uncertainty and global distress has increased pre-existing stress and interpersonal issues. I am here to help. I work collaboratively with my clients to honor who they are, help make sense of their emotional responses to daily experiences, and guide them to become more authentic in their relationships. My approach is nonjudgmental, reflective and oftentimes playful. During our sessions, I help clients make connections between current problems and past struggles. Understanding these patterns builds self-awareness and helps create more adaptive ways of coping with stress and relating to others.

"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, adults, 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."

I am primarily a psychodynamic therapist, which means that I focus on better understanding the internal forces and memories that affect our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in ways that might feel confusing and operate outside of our everyday awareness.
People seek out therapy for many reasons, but in my experience most patients enter treatment in the middle of something. Perhaps you're wondering why you feel the way you do or have the same distressing thoughts over and over. Some are curious why they can't seem to stop repeating evidently self-defeating patterns of behavior. Maybe you're anxious about a chosen or unchosen life transition. Or you just feel stuck. Therapy can clarify your current situation, help you gain an understanding of how you arrived at this point, and begin to formulate a healthy path forward. I have three orienting goals to my therapeutic approach. First, we will work on generating and expanding moments of your personal freedom. Second, we will cultivate an enhanced understanding of yourself and those around you. And overall, together we will establish meaningful and durable psychological change.

Upon entering each new developmental phase of our lives, there is often a momentary pause, an unsettling of the ship as we adjust to new demands, challenges and desires (and this is true no matter our age). Perhaps the Terrible Twos, Tween or Teen years have hit? Could it be that your child is struggling at school and you'd like to support him or her to feel better and have more success? Maybe you are an adult who is feeling overwhelmed by stress and the demands of life. These moments are great opportunities for growth and I believe I can help.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Chevy Chase, Washington, 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.
