I use cognitive (thought-focused), somatic (body-focused), emotion-focused, and psychodynamic approaches to promote more effective and satisfying ways of coping with life's challenges.
I am committed to helping people find relief and greater happiness. Twenty five years of experience as a psychotherapist confirms my belief in the power of understanding and the possibility of change. The fear of change can become the excitement of discovery; avoidance and running away can transform into assertiveness; holding back can give way to reaching out; confusion can crystallize into clarity and confidence; emotional pain can transform into patience and wisdom. Together, we can work to help you find the solutions and fulfillment you seek.

Cognitive-behavioral, emotionally focused, narrative and somatic therapy offer helpful tools, as do sex therapy and hypnosis.
We are convinced we have a problem. We're focused on it, worried about it, and it often feels like it defines us. These problems tend to show up or worsen during life and relationship transitions. Attending to what isn't working, as well as being intentional about addressing these problems, is necessary for change. Easily overlooked though, are the jewels - the opportunities hiding behind those problems. Psychotherapy provides a safe space for growth opportunities - offering compassion to those parts of ourselves we don't like or shame us, while allowing for the fluidity, flexibility and movement required for transformations.

My therapeutic approach is heavily based in principles from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Somatic Therapy (EMDR/TRM), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Now more than ever, life stressors can push us outside of our comfort zone to an unfamiliar way of living. Yet the demands of school, work, family and relationships continue. Whether you are experiencing loneliness, anxiety, stress, depression, interpersonal conflict or are too overwhelmed to name what you are feeling, therapy can offer a safe place to begin to create a life worth living.

So many of us present a high-functioning face to the world, but our inner lives tell a different story. Depression, anxiety, and other issues are natural byproducts of the stressful lives we lead. I work with adults, teens (16 and older), couples, and families, ranging from adolescents facing developmental struggles to stay-at-home parents and Beltway professionals. As a native Northern Virginian, I can relate to the challenges of living in this frenetic environment. My previous military and consulting experience give me an understanding of issues that busy professionals deal with like self-care and work-life balance.

In each of us there is a wise and compassionate Self. It is already there, and does not have to be created or developed. Too often, however, our access to this Self is obscured by protective and sometimes conflicting thoughts and emotions. These protections were put in place for a reason, but can become outdated and even dysfunctional as we mature. In our therapy together we will uncover what is being protected, release old patterns and emotions, and create space for this wise Self to take a larger role in your life.
