Urban living has its unique challenges, which can lead to stress, depression, anxiety, feelings of emptiness, a sense of loneliness and other highly charged feelings and experiences. Are you in transition, a "transplant" to the area or maybe you have lived here all of your life? Are you having relationship problems? Going through a break-up, separation or divorce? Are you experiencing difficulty in connecting with others? Maybe you are experiencing a crisis in your career, feeling mismatched/unfulfilled? Or are you feeling unhappy but can't figure out the source, the "why" you are feeling this way?

I understand that reaching out to schedule the initial therapy session can be intimidating. For this reason, my priority in session is to provide a safe and confidential therapeutic space for my clients in which they can share their challenges and feel heard and understood. My counseling experience includes assisting individuals with life transitions, anxiety, communication skills, depression, stress management, relationship difficulties, and addictive behaviors. I have worked in a variety of settings, including private practice, hospice care, mental health agencies, schools, and out-patient substance abuse treatment settings.

Typically, I work with clients ranging in age from 12 through adulthood. Many of my clients are facing challenges with depression, anxiety, job or school performance, relationship issues (couples, parenting, family of origin, and work). Often people come to a juncture in their lives when they know something must change. My work focuses on the desired change each person brings. Together we address reducing symptoms, removing obstacles to growth and increasing life satisfaction. Techniques including NLP, non-verbal presence, mindfulness are offered. Executive coaching, leadership and team building, masterful communication, and conflict mediation skills are offered to organizations.

I believe we come to be fulfilled in life through our relationships--to ourselves, each other and the world around us. Emotional distress is a signal that one of those relationships is in trouble and needs attention. My approach to restoring wellbeing emphasizes empathy, compassionate communication and thoughtful action. A person who reaches out for professional help is making an important first step in the process of healing, learning and growing as a person. Collaborating with a therapist means establishing a trusting and respectful relationship and then exploring together a path to personal wellbeing. I'm committed to that.

My role is to work with you to help free you of old relationship patterns that have become destructive.
A patient wrote this to me: "You are someone who knows the song in my heart, and could sing it back to me when I had forgotten the words." In my over 27 years of psychotherapy practice, I have learned several things: one is, in meeting with patients, to clear my mind (at least to try hard!) of all the theories and clinical orientations I have absorbed and to allow my emotions, mind, body, and considerable life experience to be present in our interactions. [Please note that I do NOT accept CareFirst BlueCHOICE, just PPO and Federal.]

I listen empathically to each partner and strive to gain a complete picture of the relationship .
Some commonly believed myths about couples counseling are (1) it’s the first step to divorce or separation, (2) a partner is going to feel outnumbered and gained up on, and (3) it involves nothing but tears, sweat, and pain. I am passionate about helping couples heal and rebuild trust after experiencing hurt, neglect, or an affair. I am all about helping couples find their spark again developing habits and communication patterns that help connect them and feel understood by one another. Couples therapy can be fun! Humor lowers tensions and brings a sense of lightheartedness into therapy, reminding us all that we’re only human.

Creating an engaged therapeutic relationship is where we start. I became a therapist because I believe in the power of relationships. Moved by my own experiences, I wanted to guide others to push past perceived limitations, obstacles, and fear to live a full and meaningful life. We all have the ability to grow, heal, and move forward. I have over 20 years of experience providing individual and group therapy, focusing on parent coaching, family systems work, and navigating depression and anxiety. I have sat across and heard many stories of loss and courage with an open heart - let's work together to explore yours.

With over 12 years of providing quality professional mental health services to children, teenagers, adults, and families, I look forward to helping my clients thrive in the midst of incredibly challenging situations. It has been said that life is a beautiful struggle. Often, the struggle - whether it arises from life transitions, loss, trauma, or everyday stressors - overshadows the beauty of life. It is in these times I seek to walk alongside my clients and provide the space and time for them to develop insight and skills, grieve losses, process traumas, and rediscover joy and hope.

My focus is on building a connected and trusting relationship , so you receive the support and guidance you need to navigate life's challenges.
Often, people realize at some point in their lives that they would like professional assistance in order to successfully navigate or cope with overwhelming situations, strained interpersonal relationships, or distressing emotional responses to their environment (e.g., sadness or excessive worrying). In addition, most people are also confronted by situations in which past experiences inform their current reactions, responses, and behaviors. Therapy can help individuals to develop awareness and insight into their emotions and behavior, feel hopeful, enact change, and live a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for an Old Town, Alexandria relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Old Town, Alexandria.
