I am a Clinical Psychologist and Organizational Consultant. In private practice for 32 years, I see adolescents, adults, couples, and families. My therapeutic style combines family systems, psycho-dynamic theory, and brain-based/cognitive behavioral therapy to promote change. To be effective, I believe a therapist must build trusting relationships and see each client as a unique person in their own complex environment. I provide training and staff development to child welfare and mental health programs, teach Family Therapy and Clinical Assessment at The University of Maryland School of Social Work, and serve on the editorial board of the Journal of Family Strengths.

Relationships can be some of the most meaningful aspects of life. So, why are they often so complicated? My office is a place where individuals, couples, families and more can talk through all kinds of relationships with a healthy dose of warmth, encouragement, kindness and humor. I take an active approach, meaning I offer honest dialogue rather than passive listening. I pro-actively help connect the different threads of your life–because no one’s troubles exist in a vacuum. I also respect that while I have expertise in my field, you are the foremost expert on yourself. Whether or not you've been to therapy before, you are welcome.

My experiences living in Africa, Europe and the USA (moved here in 1997) have fostered my keen appreciation for various teaching, learning, and developmental approaches to counseling/therapy. My counseling style is direct, compassionate and interactive. I believe the most critical aspect of therapy requires a therapist to go beyond just sitting and listening. I believe in establishing trust in order to truly be able to have a positive impact.

All clients are unique as are all therapists. Research has shown that clients benefit the most from therapy, when there is a strong match between client and therapist. I encourage my clients ability to unpack and explore their worldview in a safe place. I am sensitive, to how considering new perspectives can be both scary and challenging. Courageously re-framing severe distress as a logical, biological and psychological response to environmental conditions, guides my practice. I work with adolescents, adults, individuals and families.

Are you, or is your child, feeling distressed and frustrated ... do you feel stuck , prevented from meeting life's inevitable challenges? During 40 years as a psychologist, I have been generously "trained" by hundreds of individuals, families, couples, children and adolescents seen in my practice. These experiences have taught me to approach treatment holistically, giving equal attention to the psychological, biological, social and spiritual aspects of life. While respecting the importance of scientifically validated therapeutic techniques, I also appreciate the fundamental role of the therapeutic relationship - a relationship grounded in trust, respect, compassion, and (hopefully) wisdom borne of experience.

Being a human can be really hard sometimes. Maybe it’s hard because there’s an area in our lives where we struggle, like in our careers or relationships. Perhaps, we’ve experienced some painful times that we haven’t fully healed from or find ourselves engaging in problematic behaviors. Whatever our struggles, I’ve found that psychotherapy can help reduce our suffering and help connect us to the joy of being alive.
