In my private office in Fairfax I am currently treating clients suffering from depression , anxiety, bipolar disorder, stressful work and school environments, relationship issues, marital problems and retirement issues.
I have always been a helper. In the first grade my compassion got me into trouble for reassuring a classmate that the teacher wouldn't mind if he removed the tape over his mouth to eat his recess snack. Needless to say, she minded. In high school I was the "go to" person for friends who were having all sorts of relationship problems. This pattern continued through college. I guess it is no surprise that I now help people solve their problems for a living.

My clinical experience includes helping clients address anxiety such as phobias and obsessions/compulsions; depression ; self-esteem improvement; identity development; and behavior concerns.
I believe that psychotherapy is a process in which an individual can grow and address difficult emotions and/or experiences in a safe environment. Individuals learn effective coping strategies and how to modify unhealthy ways of thinking for application in their every day lives. With a supportive therapeutic relationship healthy and productive lifelong changes can happen.

I work with people with anxiety/ depression , grief/loss, boundary issues, parenting issues, & couples facing infertility or other issues.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I specialize in psychotherapy for individuals, couples, and families. People often come to me because, despite their efforts to change, they end up in the same cycles...cycles of anxiety, depression , disordered eating, relationship struggles, isolation, procrastination, workaholism...the list goes on and on. People often wonder "why can't I just *change*?" These cycles of behavior are driven by our life experiences and sense of ourself and others. Together, we will explore these ideas so that you can begin to create newer positive cycles of peace, calm, joy, contentment, intimacy, health, and fulfillment.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Fairfax. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
