Grief is a natural response to a bereavement or a loss of any kind, but the distress you understandably feel today need not be incapacitating or unnecessarily prolonged. My approach will help you come to terms with your new reality, while retaining a healthy and positive psychological relationship with the loved ones you have cherished, but who are now no longer physically present. We will work together to establish new strategies for living a fulfilling and joyful life - a life that can be continually enriched by the happy memories of times gone by. A life of gratitude, rather than regret.

Seeking out therapy is the first step in your journey to healing and understanding. Through therapy, I will work with you to address present challenges, identify tools to navigate current and future difficult situations, and make changes to patterns of behavior or thoughts that are causing distress. Throughout our work, we will focus on broadening and deepening your awareness of yourself.   The foundation of successful therapeutic work is the therapist-client relationship. I understand the importance of this relationship, and I strive to establish a collaborative working connection filled with warmth and understanding.

I work with clients who are distressed or confused by why they engage in the behaviors they do, whether it's addiction, anger, illegal or anti-social behavior, or relationship difficulties and challenges. I believe this is because my stance is non-judgmental and I genuinely believe that all behavior is rational given past experience, even if it is not helpful or healthy in the present. I work to help clients navigate how these behaviors may have arisen, to develop self-compassion, and then to provide support and strategies to do the hard work of adopting new, more helpful behaviors.

I view therapy as an invitation to bring awareness to the here and now. For many of us, we press forward, through, and over difficult feelings when they arise in our daily lives. Often they show up as unwanted thoughts or images. They not only fill us with dread, but we will go to great lengths to avoid them. On the other hand, what if moving toward our feelings actually reduces the influence they have over us, allowing us to attend to the very things we value, thereby creating meaning and purpose in our lives.

"I'm struggling with something, but what can I do about it?" "Why is it so easy for everyone else?" "I just want out of my head, and back into my life." As your therapist, I will listen to and learn about your challenges. I believe successful therapy is a collaborative effort that helps you build a real, authentic, and happy life. Therapy can be helpful when sensitive topics and difficult challenges feel intimidating and overwhelming. For many, simply being in distress and discomfort is hard, tiring work. We'll find a pace that works for you and I'll help you keep your goals in focus.

I am currently licensed to practice and supervise in Virginia and DC. I provide clinical supervision for those seeking their LPC, LCSW or CSAC. I provide this in person as well as through Skype, etc. I am board approved in the state of Virginia. I am also a person-centered therapist and believe in treating all people with unconditional positive regard. My ideal client is one who is aware that they have a problem and are willing to seek help with that problem. I have found that many people already know what they need to do to bring about the changes they want; they just need some specialized help getting there.

And, with Free Consults for new DC and FL clients, you can decide before you even begin. The goal is to end therapy quickly! My experience is with adults, couples and families; my emphasis is outcomes looking at what works and what doesn't. My specialty is eclectic - using science and paradigms to effect change. Not everyone needs a therapist "just to talk." Counseling is about change. It's about you getting better, even if creatively realized.
