Most individuals come to me when new or stressful life circumstances have overwhelmed their traditional coping strategies. We work together to understand the circumstances that they are facing, the distress that they are experiencing, and explore strategies for reducing their distress and enhancing their well-being. Together we form an understanding partnership that enables them to face the world with more effective coping strategies and improved relationship skills. My theoretical approaches include cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy and positive psychology. My clients describe me as warm, empathetic, wise and practical.

Clinically I am trained in Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Jungian, and Transpersonal psychotherapies.
I am more interested in what you are experiencing than anything I could tell you about myself. Generally people come because they have reached some sort of personal impasse or difficulty and feel the need for an outside perspective or help. My job is to provide that perspective.

I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and mindful techniques to help individuals in each therapy session.
One of the most critical components of effective therapy is developing a connection with your therapist. My top priority is making people feel comfortable in sessions and working towards achieving the different goals they have for therapy. My clients are able to share their thoughts and experiences through a non-judgmental and safe environment that I strive to cultivate. I often hear people in therapy say “I don’t know what to do. My anxiety is controlling my life.” Others have said, “My depression is so debilitating” or “I just need someone to talk to because I feel my relationships are spiraling out of control.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Rockville, 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.
