How the hell did I/we end up here? When are things going to finally shift for me/us? Life, relationships, job: Could be worse, but could be waaaay better. If any of these statements capture where you're at - welcome to therapy. Whether it's your first time looking for a therapist, or your second decade in treatment, with me, you can bring your whole self - with its questions, stuckness, fears, longings, uncertainties - and find ways to move through. Described as "warm" and "direct" by clients, my work is strongly grounded by anti-racism, critical multicultural theories, and affective neuroscience.

Life can be painful. Therapy doesn't have to be. Many people see therapy as one sided, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience each other as real people. I want to help you achieve the solutions and life changes you are looking for while enjoying the process as much as possible. Calling a therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a deep breath) to call and see how I can help. Life is too short to surrender to bad relationships, hold grudges, let trauma control us, or be anxious all the time. I want you to be free of emotional pain and able to deal with life on your terms.

I remember being in high-school; the world seemed both exciting and overwhelming. What I love about working with teens the most is that I get to witness their impressive resilience, refreshing sense of humor, and inspiring idealism. Adolescence can be a turbulent time for young people and their families. High school students struggle with the effects of social media, body image, fatigue, friendship issues, academic pressures; they don't always know how to reach out for support. The most valuable thing that I can offer is my unconditional positive regard for my teen clients and their families.

Award winning transformation focused therapist Licensed in Virginia and D.C. Losing a loved one can be the most difficult time in your life. Emotions are often surprising in their strength or mildness. Grief often breaks a person completely from the inside out. Grieving is hard work, you can get worn out, and feel battered. It can take a lot longer to work through grief than most people realize. People around you may think it’s helpful for you to not talk or cry or focus on your loss but actually, this is just what people need to do. The goal is to not stay stuck, to move through it—and this is part of the process.

Traumatic experiences can and will affect us in various ways. Loneliness, negativity, abandonment, rejection, and our reactions can severely impact our mental health. Ironically, it is often easier to push away people than deal with difficult feelings. Unfortunately, we choose this path by abusing substances, alcohol, and other types of addictions. When we run away from our feelings and challenges, we are not allowing ourselves to heal and recover. Essentially, we are hurting ourselves and others. Together we can work through these difficult experiences and navigate around the painful emotions to feel better and find joy again.

Relationships. We never really explicitly learn how to "do" this whole relationship thing, at least not in school. Are there rules for relationships? How about guidelines to help guide us? We know about general advice like when your aunt sits you down at the family reunion reminding you to just "be yourself," but how helpful are these generalities? If you're baffled, confused, frustrated, or simply wish you had a better relationship, you're not alone. In fact, you're part of the majority. And based on neuroscience, attachment theory, and ancient wisdom, you can improve and experience a better relationship.

Online Therapists

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
