If you are dealing with stress, relationship issues, mood disorders, career/professional concerns, or life transitions, you may be feeling overwhelmed and imbalanced. When this happens, everything else suffers from your personal to your professional life, and including how you feel. You may find it challenging to find the right therapist who can help you heal. Just know that you are not alone. It can be difficult to seek therapy, especially if you tried it before and felt like it didn't work. Individuals of all backgrounds and diversities, youth, adults, couples, and families are welcome.

In a non-judgemental, respectful atmosphere I accompany people along their journey to living richer, more meaningful life. I encourage people to broaden their awareness into their thoughts, feelings, reactions and behaviors to identify strengths and whats working and challenges and how they are getting in the way. Recognizing the the mind-body-spirit connection, understanding healthy and antiquated defenses and increasing capacity for feeling a greater range of emotions at a deeper level is an important focus of the psychotherapy process. Identifying feelings, understanding reactions and learning better, more effective means of communicating with others is integral as well.

Imagine being able to manage the stressors that continually weigh heavily on you. When you have tried to resolve these issues on your own, but haven't found the result you are looking for, it's time to reach out for support. It's not about working harder, but smarter. My job is to provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment to allow you to find the balance and improvement you have been seeking.

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

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