Announcement icon I offer teletherapy by Zoom video or phone to Virginia clients during this time.
Many stressors can interfere with your mental well-being, even without the added weight of the coronavirus, the economy, and social distancing. Telehealth therapy by video can help. Many people who are overly anxious, depressed, self-critical, worried, or socially awkward have been helped by Cognitive Behavioral, interpersonal, or solution-focused therapy. These can help professionals, healthcare providers, young people, working adults, and parents manage anxiety, mood, behavior, and other problems. My approach involves thoughts, feelings, and behavior, presented with empathy and informed by evidence-based advances in psychology..
My clinical psychology PhD from George Mason U., backed by a neuroscience background from the University of Chicago, teaching medical and grad students, and over 25 years of professional experience helps me relate both brain and mind to people's well-being.
Each client should be heard with understanding and helped with challenging issues like anxiety, panic, depression, parenting, or difficult behavior. My publications in Psychology Today and The Atlantic discuss teletherapy, anxiety, panic, stress, neuroscience, technology, and cultural differences. I offer a free 10-minute phone consult before scheduling.
