I received my Bachelor's degree from Cornell University and my Masters in Marriage & Family Therapy from Virginia Tech.
Life is filled with crossroads-marriage, divorce, a new baby, an empty nest, a boomerang child. Even the most joyful ones can be challenging and at times we find we could use some support. In my practice I work to help you tap into the strengths that are within you and find your voice - your creativity, courage and compassion - so you can make healthy choices for yourself and your relationships. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families and consider it a privilege to provide a safe, non-judgmental space to help you rediscover hope and work toward your goals.

I use a variety of frameworks with an emphasis on Internal Family Systems (IFS), Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) but ultimately your needs drive my interventions.
Why am I acting this way? Why am I like this? Can I feel better? I understand how painful and disconcerting feeling like this can be. And yet, I believe you deserve to truly know, accept, appreciate and love all of you. I will guide and support you in your therapeutic journey, and you will learn the skills to understand your past, face your present with more confidence, and ultimately look forward to enjoying your future. Self-discovery and healing are essential to leading a fulfilled life and they are a long-term investment in you and your loved ones.

Very few adults, let alone children or teenagers, jump at the chance to start seeing a therapist. Difficult circumstances might have brought you to this point: communication problems with family members, frequent arguments, feeling stressed out, or having intense feelings of depression and anxiety. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for my clients. My approach is personal, practical, non judgmental. I work in a variety of ways, depending on your or your child's needs and preference, using cognitive behavioral therapy, art therapy, and play therapy.

Are you tired of making attempts to improve the quality of your personal, family , or your kids' lives without getting the results you want? Many of us feel stuck at some point in our lives. Sudden life changes, challenging relationships, children, stressful jobs often make us feel emotionally vulnerable and helpless. This affects our ability to problem-solve and make decisions. Children and Adolescents also experience similar challenges as their high social, academic, and family expectations often trigger feelings of inadequacy, often leading to low self-esteem, anger, anxiety, and sadness.

Selected as one of the top therapists for marriage and family therapy in the 2009 and 2012 Washingtonian Magazine.
One of the key beliefs that I hold regarding therapy is that clients generally know what is best for them. Rather than telling clients what to do, I help explore options, loosen possiblities, examine potential consequences and empower clients to make decisions that will ultimately lead to healthy relationships. This is done in a supportive, respectful and collaborative environement.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
