Sex and relationships are an integral parts of our lives. However, miscommunication, self-perceptions, and misguided expectations can prevent us from having the connections we want. Although our frustrations can seem insurmountable at times, change is possible. Looking for a therapist is a positive first step. Whether you are looking to gain personal insight, develop coping strategies, or improve your relationships and sexual functioning, we can work together to achieve your goals. I work with individuals and couples and am licensed in VA and DC.

My philosophy of therapy is that individuals heal through the relationship they develop with an experienced therapist in a warm, accepting environment. Life can be difficult and we all develop ways to help us cope. Often the ways that we learn to cope can do more damage than good, over time. In these instances, it’s important to learn new ways of managing oneself in tough times. Therapy can help you learn alternative ways of coping and taking good care of yourself. It can also help to change any distorted perceptions you may have developed of yourself through past, difficult experiences.

Art Therapy makes it possible to express what is difficult, and sometimes impossible, to communicate with words. Using art creates the opportunity to delve into the unconscious and parts of the brain in which words do not exist. Art Therapy has a unique way of healing old wounds, and we believe in working with you, first and foremost, to find the path to wellness that is best for you. There is no “one size fits all” approach to therapy, and we love co-creating the therapeutic experience with you.
