Specialties include: psychotherapy with adults , adolescents, relationships; life transitions around adolescence, mid-life and seniority; sexual identity, orientation, dysfunction, harassment, paraphilia; personality assessment; legal reports.
People often seek counseling or psychotherapy to change and to resolve difficulties or problems. Seeking consultation is personal and it takes some courage to initiate contact. Sometimes the impetus comes from within; sometimes your circumstances or others close to you provide a nudge. Finding the 'right' therapist for you may take some exploration. Some people simply seek to talk privately about a subject or an issue. This may involve one's direction in life, career, management role, or decision-making. Some people seek to address deeply personal thoughts, emotions, behaviors, relationships, spirituality, or other concerns.

I've been extremely privileged to help those in my sphere of influence, both adolescents and adults , during times of trial and transition.
We are all coming out of a storm, in the middle of one right now, or looking at clouds beginning to form on the horizon. But the good news is that we don't have to go through any of that alone. There is help, and there is hope. The way things are today is not the way things will remain forever. Whether you are facing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addiction, spiritual questions, life transitions, military or post-military challenges - let's make sense of this part of your story, together.

For six years I enjoyed working with adolescents and young adults as a social worker and soccer coach in the public school setting (FCPS and Arlington Public Schools). Given the transient and dense population of the Northern Virginia community, our school aged population puts immense pressure on themselves to succeed socially, academically, and athletically. Many of the individuals that I've worked with are dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, relationship issues, or something else.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 30 years of experience working with adolescents, adults , families, and couples in a relaxed, safe, and caring environment. People enter my office because they feel stuck or lost. Clients recognize that they are unhappy and often know what makes them unhappy, but they don't know how to change. Many people in these situations are feeling depressed, anxious, and may be involved with self-defeating behaviors. Together, we examine these issues with non-judgmental dialogue.

I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults , and families.
It is safe to say that no person is the same as another, and no one should be. My focus in therapy is to use supportive, therapeutic, and collaborative approaches that are tailored to you. Together we will ensure that you integrate deep-rooted insights and self-awareness in your behaviors patterns, so you can form processed and healthy emotional reactions. In therapy, I will assist you to overcome the difficult life experience that won’t seem to resolve itself. You will learn how to gain control over your choices, heal from the past, and develop coping strategies to overcome the obstacle and progress to your full potential.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
