I am sorry that I am not taking new patients at this time. What I'm especially good at is helping people get clarity about their relationships and their boundaries. This means I work well with individuals in difficult marriages, children and parents trying to establish adult bonds, codependent people, and with anyone who wants warmer, happier, more peaceful interactions in their life. If you can't figure out why your relationships go off the rails, I can help. I like to work with adults, teens and parents, couples, minor-attracted persons (non-offending pedophiles), LGBTQ folks and people who don't know why they feel bad.

Northern Virginia's Vaping and Addiction Specialist. If you believe that your teen is using drugs, you must act quickly. Many parents' initial response to their teen's substance use is to impose harsh punishment in an effort to force their teen to stop using. This approach is not only ineffective but it can irreparably damage your future relationship with your child . We guide parents through every step of our proprietary process to address the root cause of their child 's substance use and help the child stop using while building the skills to return to a happy and fulfilled life.

In my work with adults, children and teenagers, I focus on their strengths and encourage them to think beyond difficulties and identify achievable goals. I coach parents skills to better communicate with their children and become "safely unpredictable," particularly as many children (if not all) become experts in how to push their parents buttons! I have been told by many of my clients over the past 18 years that my warm and directive, confident approach has been most helpful. Many children and teenagers referred to my practice have been in therapy before, with limited success.

It is a time when parent/ child and peer relationships, cognitive and biochemical development all coelesce into a new phase of growth, understanding and even peace.
As a clinical/developmental psychologist I see myself as a facilitator of your natural tendency toward growth and healing. When life's stresses challenge your resources you may feel overwhelmed and stuck, repeating ineffective patterns. I will help you use your existing strengths to develop new skills. Therapy is most successful as a collaborative effort: You bring your own unique blend of skills and life experience; I contribute expertise in psychodynamic, cognitive/ behavioral, internal family systems, and trauma-based techniques. Together we have the tools to clarify problems, find new perspectives and reach solutions.

With children and adolescents: I utilize play and talk therapy to help them learn about themselves and to identify warning signs of their problematic concerns.
As a psychotherapist with expertise working with and understanding children and adolescents as well as adults, I understand that psychotherapy can be useful for people of all ages. My approach to therapy involves giving people the room to express themselves at the most authentic level possible. By respecting that every person is entirely unique, I approach therapy with an attitude of curiosity that I seek to evoke in those with whom I am working. It is an interest in - as opposed to a fear of - ourselves that leads to greater aliveness and ownership over one's thoughts, feelings, actions and reactions.
