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.

These are anxious times for us all. Social distancing may be exacerbating struggles you were already experiencing or perhaps it is creating new stressors. If you were already feeling lonely and isolated you may be feeling even more so now. Struggles in your relationship that were easier to avoid with a busy life may now feel inescapable. Or, perhaps this time alone has given you time to think about changes you have been wanting to make in your life but now wonder if they are possible. The future suddenly feels uncertain. Whatever you are wrestling with, chances are these extraordinary times have made them even more challenging.

I believe therapy can help you develop a more authentic relationship with yourself, allowing you to be more clear in your communication with others. I have ample experience and enjoy working with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, and career concerns.

With a collaborative and supportive approach you will find purpose, confidence, and belonging. My approach emphasizes self- determination and collaboration, drawing on evidence-based talk therapies and mind-body approaches like EMDR, mindfulness meditation, and yoga.

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.

Parenting can be tough. The emotional drama, the power struggles, the bedtime or homework resistance, the clinginess. You love your child, you love being a parent, but parenting is draining. It stirs self-doubt and tests your patience. It requires humility and selflessness. In the darkest moments, you wonder if your mistakes are damaging your child. In short, it really is the toughest job most people will ever do. For children and adolescents, each stage of life comes with different challenges. Even children can feel lost, alone, scared, and anxious during these transitions. You want to help them, but how?

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.
