The primary goal of psychotherapy is to help you to understand what you want and need to make your life more productive, meaningful and fulfilling. Through the process of treatment, you will be able to know yourself better; address and identify current and long-standing difficulties; experience less pain and suffering; alleviate self-defeating behaviors; build and maintain healthier relationships; become more resilient and adaptable to change; and begin to develop a more accurate understanding of your past and what you want for your future. Ultimately, psychotherapy will allow you to become more equipped to lead a healthier life.

***I am no longer accepting new clients at this time.*** Psychotherapy can help you make sense of complicated feelings, gain insight into relational patterns, and begin to move forward in areas of your life where you feel stuck. My focus is to help you untangle struggles, set meaningful goals, revise problematic narratives about yourself, and re-orient you toward your values. My integrative approach is informed by psychodynamic, feminist, multicultural, relational, and behaviorist theories. Above all, I value the therapeutic relationship and your personal growth.

I'm a licensed clinical psychologist trained at Harvard Medical School. Occasionally, we notice patterns of thinking, behaving, and experiencing others & ourselves, which can feel very familiar and frustrating. Or we can be hit by sudden life circumstances like loss, transition, identity shifts, or trauma that leave us feeling overwhelmed & scared, where existing strengths and coping skills are outstripped. Through a dynamic and collaborative process, I help patients understand & transform their old ways of being to feel more connected, renewed, and, ultimately, to better flourish in their relationships, work, and within themselves.

People often seek therapy when emotions become too distressing, relationship or life circumstances are unsatisfying, and support and new strategies are needed to help the person feel and behave differently. Working with a therapist can enhance your ability to tolerate difficult situations, and make the process of personal growth and change more productive. Therapy is most effective when a collaborative relationship develops between therapist and client. I aim to create an empathetic and supportive environment, where exploring difficult issues will feel safe. Together, we will identify what has created negative emotions or life dissatisfaction, and work actively towards positive change.

Having witnessed and participated in twenty years of clients' progress, I have great confidence in this powerful process. We all want to feel optimistic and enjoy our lives, with minimal stress, doubts, anxiety, depression, and confusion. Most of us have strong and centered parts that were buried or muted as a result of trauma, loss or other painful experiences. Learning to empower these healthy parts helps us manage inevitable difficult thoughts and feelings more calmly and effectively and to enjoy healthy relationships. Depending on individual situations, short term therapy or Skype sessions may be possible.

I am a psychology associate under the supervision of Dr. Maury Joseph (license number: PSY1001241). In therapy, I seek to provide a warm and non-judgmental space for you to process your concerns. Life is hard, and we often find we find ourselves caught up in challenges in our relationships, in our personal lives, and at work. We want more-- more freedom, more purpose, or more peace. Whether your life feels overwhelming or underwhelming, I believe that the care, courage, and curiosity that you find in therapy can go a long way in helping you find new possibilities and solutions that work for you.

Most people that I see in my practice do not have an emotional or psychological illness but are faced with professional or relationship issues that are causing personal distress. These issues when not understood and dealt with can create symptoms of anxiety, depression and a loss of satisfaction in personal, professional, and intimate relationships. They can also interfere with the full expression of a person's unique abilities and the fulfillment of his or her goals.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Dupont Circle, 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
