I am your last stop. If life has disappointed you. If you are depleted. If you are lost. If your relationship is hopelessly leaving you unsatisfied. If your partner is complaining about your internal emotional desert. If you are one step from calling it quits or calling the lawyer. If you are out of ideas at how to make life and relationship work. If therapy has not worked for you in the past ... ... get ready. Your story can take a different turn. Give me a call and let's get started giving you the life - and the relationship - you desire and you deserve. I can help you have more and better.

I am passionate about working with moms to understand these wide range of powerful emotions and how to best manage them. As parents, we often reach out for help when it comes to support for our children but neglect our own struggles. I believe that one of the best things we can do as parents, is to understand how our own dysfunctions play a part in our children's lives.

Anxiety? Depression? Stress? Life Changes? With over thirty years of experience in private practice, I have noticed how sometimes long-standing behaviors can actually create personal problems, cause relationship difficulties, and undermine the achievement of life goals. Working together, we can explore and identify these behaviors and change them. Individual Therapy helps to build confidence as you begin to understand and take steps to modify personal challenges. Couples Therapy identifies and builds upon personal and relationships strengths to repair interpersonal distress.

You may be feeling exhausted from trying to balance work and home life, yet feel like you just can’t get things right. Again and again, it feels you are somehow falling short. Resentment builds.

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.
