"We may find ourselves entering therapy or seeking a psychological evaluation for a variety of reasons. We may experience significant life stressors or transitions we were not prepared to cope with. At times, we may simply have negative or distorted thoughts that can contribute to depression, anxiety, or other overwhelming emotions. While there are many different modalities that can be effective in therapy, change largely depends on a good therapeutic match between the client and the psychologist. I hope to offer a space where individuals feel comfortable and safe by creating a non-judgmental atmosphere for us to work together. "

In both short-term and long-term therapy, I work with adults, teens, 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.
