Sometimes our lives can look fine "on paper" but it still feels like something is missing. Not knowing what that something is can be stressful, and even knowing exactly what that something is can be frustrating when knowing isn't enough. Whether you're struggling with your relationship, work, family, self-esteem, or sense of meaning and purpose, that struggle becomes heavier by trying to manage it all on your own. The truth is that nobody does life on their own, so you shouldn’t feel like you have to.

Over the twenty-eight years, my clinical focus has involved working in a collaborative way to identify and treat painful symptoms some of which include depression, anxiety, difficulty managing anger, low self esteem , self critical thinking and addictive tendencies including alcohol and food.
Regardless of age, emotional stress and difficulties can get in the way of reaching one's optimal level of functioning. As a licensed clinical social worker, I provide intensive individual psychotherapy to adolescents and adults. I practice from a psychoanalytic perspective because my professional experience has shown me that this way of working can result in deep and meaningful change that is lasting. I also incorporate other styles and techniques depending on the clinical needs of the individual, some of these include CBT and stress management strategies.

I have been working with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, sex addictions, relationships, grief and loss, self esteem , and more for over 17 years.
Seeking help takes courage and strength. Sometimes we are simply surviving in our lives but desire to thrive. We may struggle with depression, anxiety, addictions, challenging relationships, loss of relationships, loss of self esteem or confidence, etc. I believe there are turning points in our lives when we are ready to work and we need someone who can help us. I have over 17 years working with clients and have been inspired by their strength, persistence, courage, vulnerability, desire to change and hope. Sometimes, when all feels dark and hopeless, we need the help of others. I am happy to help you in your journey.

As an art therapist, I integrate the visual art process with counseling techniques to help clients communicate feelings and achieve their goals. Art therapy can help clients can practice mindfulness, make connections between the art process and their lives, and find meaning in what they make. Together, we can explore how artwork fits with thoughts, feelings, and experiences. I collaborate with my clients to help them grow, and tailor my approach to support each individual. I develop trusting relationships and create a warm, non-judgmental environment to facilitate growth, increase self-awareness, and explore feelings.

Do you have a sense that something about your childhood is affecting you as an adult? Maybe you can put your finger on exactly what it is, or maybe you are just seeing patterns in your life & relationships that have you wondering if there’s something deeper behind it. Past therapy experiences may have been helpful in some ways, but you seem to keep getting stuck. It feels like anxiety and self-doubt are the ones controlling the direction of your life, not what is true and authentic to you. You’re ready to address these things at the source, so you can finally work with your inner critic and regain control of your life.

My services include; anxiety and stress management, depression, grief counseling, self esteem and assertiveness training, working with children and adolescents struggling with interpersonal stress and behavioral issues, and sex offender treatment.
Welcome. Through the hustle and bustle of life it is often the case that we neglect to take the time for ourselves to allow for self care let alone allow time to nurture our mental health. We sometimes forget that in order to do our best for others we must first assure that we are taking care of ourselves. My mission is to assist a wide variety of clients in working through issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, self esteem issues, and general life stressors in order to allow clients to examine and explore ways in which to live their best lives.

I am a Virginia teletherapist based in Boston. I have 12 years of clinical experience, speak at psychology conferences, am a past professor of psychology, researcher, and the author of a forthcoming book about psychotherapy. My clients are conscious individuals and couples who worked hard to achieve a picture of success but struggle privately with relationship issues, trauma and PTSD, self-esteem, anxiety, and unresolved past issues (e.g. childhood and family of origin concerns). Some have even tried therapy or self-help books, but it wasn’t personalized enough, the right timing, or the right approach.

Has anxiety hijacked your body or life? Are you tired of feeling anxious, edgy, overwhelmed, having anxiety attacks? Are fears keeping you stuck e.g., what if I fail? Is fear of being judged, rejected or not fitting in, holding you back? Is your inner critic, making your life miserable, feel like a bad person, & chopping down your self-esteem? Are you tired of blaming, doubting, or comparing yourself with others? Do your feel stuck in a toxic or co-dependent relationship? These alongside depression, low self-esteem, disconnection from emotions, & addictions/problematic use of alcohol/drugs are the primary areas I specialize in.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in Alexandria and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.
