You're a badass go-getter, motivated by working towards your life's goals, but something feels stuck or slows your progress. Your life is mostly together, but you're dealing with anxiety, low- self esteem , or negative self-talk pretty regularly. Maybe you feel like it's hard to form relationships with others around you. There's a chance social media makes you feel inadequate. Maybe you still feel or notice the effects of a trauma in your past. You've considered talking to someone about these things before, but therapy always seemed drastic or a little too extra. (I promise, it's not!) Email or call if this sounds like you!

I help adults, teens, and couples who are caught in unhealthy and unfulfilling patterns and want guidance and support in the process of changing. These patterns can take the form of low self-esteem, indecisiveness, procrastination, anger, anxious feelings, negative thinking, addictive behaviors, or unhealthy relationships. My clients are not looking for anyone to fix them, including myself, but in the process of therapy many clients gain confidence in healing themselves and living their lives with greater agency, conviction, and self-compassion.

As a solution-focused counselor/coach, my treatment approach is to provide support with insight and feedback to help women address current challenges and self-esteem issues. My specialty area is truly unique but well received by my clients. I take a less traditional route of counseling/coaching and recognize that how we feel on the inside manifests itself on the outside.

In my practice I work primarily with young adults (20-35-millennials) who deal with issues regarding transitions, achievement concerns, self-esteem, body image, relationship problems, anxiety, and depression. Similarly, I have found that many women of all ages suffer with similar issues, as well as trouble navigating life's transitions as we age, stress, marriage concerns and parenting concerns. My goal is to help my clients better cope with the difficult issues they face and ultimately live a happier life.

I reconnect my clients with their innermost authentic selves through building self esteem , healthier relationships, and a renewed passion for life and their purpose. I offer my clients several years of experience providing therapy with successful outcomes. I believe therapy acts as a psychological mirror that helps us access the insights we need to improve our lives as well as see where there are patterns that are causing us harm.

Nobody comes out of childhood without trauma (no matter how beautiful their childhood was!). That's because we all can get overwhelmed beyond our capacity to cope, which means any given moment can become traumatic depending on what we think of ourselves and the other experiences we’ve had in our lives. My goal is to help clients recognize and break out of the patterns of their past so they can build the life they want! I work with adolescents and adults (ages 13+) who have trauma-related concerns (ie. relationship issues, negative self-esteem) and are ready to process through their traumas so they can move forward.

I have experience working with various concerns including anxiety, depression, behavioral concerns, grief, poor self-esteem and body image, relationship issues, ADHD, and life transitions. I strive to provide an environment that is warm, relaxed, and engaging where clients can have fun while gaining insight.

Many of us experience emotional hardships and strains which affect our abilities to create and sustain satisfying connections, or feel like our strongest self. Our emotions can be affected by adjustments, grief and loss, traumas, physical illness, family distress, and life transitions which can have rippling effects across our multiple roles. Taking a step to connect with a trained counseling professional,with whom you feel a strong and safe fit, can be one way to feel support and better. Through individual, couples, and/or group therapy, or appropriate assessment, I hope to offer a range of psychological support.

Life is full of challenging events, decisions, and transitions. Going to therapy does not make a person “less than,” or indicate you are incapable of dealing with challenges/issues on your own. Beginning therapy is a sign of courage and awareness that you believe positive change in your life can be achieved. I work with adult individuals helping them cope with and work through a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, drug/alcohol use, stress reduction, anger, life transitions, coping with uncertainty, increasing self-esteem, as well as developing and maintaining healthy relationships.

Hi! I'm a psychologist who has lived in the Washington DC area for nearly thirty years. I know that life in this region can be stressful, with traffic, high-pressure jobs, and interpersonal demands. I help people find ways to cope with these pressures and life's many challenges, including relationship concerns, self-esteem issues, self-defeating behaviors, emotional reactivity, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and life transitions. I believe that a therapeutic relationship offering confidentiality, safety, respect, curiosity, and a little humor, provides the most fertile soil for self exploration, healing, and growth.

If you are having a personal crisis, I am here to help you make those changes.
