The decision to seek therapy takes courage. I aim to provide a non-judgmental space that allows you to feel comfortable and understood. The best outcome in therapy comes from a trusting and collaborative relationship between the therapist and you. In my work, one of the main outcomes is for you to appreciate your strengths, how you have used your strengths to overcome previous challenges, and how you can use them to face current and future situations.

All clients are unique as are all therapists. Research has shown that clients benefit the most from therapy, when there is a strong match between client and therapist. I encourage my clients ability to unpack and explore their worldview in a safe place. I am sensitive, to how considering new perspectives can be both scary and challenging. Courageously re-framing severe distress as a logical, biological and psychological response to environmental conditions, guides my practice. I work with adolescents, adults, individuals and families.

I connect deeply and empathically with my clients, and challenge them towards greater self-awareness that leads to happiness and peace of mind internally and within relationships. Individuals and couples inevitably reach periods of frustration and conflict that signal the need for change. Whether these problems are grounded in past loss or current misfortune, outside intervention can offer immediate relief. I specialize in treating mood disorders, couples in gridlock, and adult children with a legacy of trauma, neglect or codependency. Working with adults and couples, I approach difficulties compassionately and non-pathologically. Psychotherapy helps restore emotional balance and well-being.

Individuals can get stuck and couples often bicker over seemingly small stuff. The easy solutions don't work. Why? In many cases, those petty problems are tethered to larger meanings for the individuals. The real solutions need to address these deeper issues. I provide a place where individuals and couples can safely explore and clarify -- what's really going on here? With both individuals and couples, I encourage people to look inward -- how am I contributing to this impasse? How is this related to my history? And importantly, what can we do about it now?

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

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