If you are someone aged 16 or older struggling with anxious or depressive thoughts, history of relationship abuse or sexual assault, grieving a loss or experiencing life transitions including relationship changes, aging related changes, career changes or going to college for the first time, reach out to me.
* Accepting new clients* Pursuing therapy is a courageous act! I recognize the difficulty of this choice and have great respect for each client who presents themselves to me for help. My aim is to make therapy a safe place where you can express your feelings openly, work through difficult issues and develop tools and solutions. My approach to therapy is to start with a strong relationship based on trust and acceptance, identify your goals and use cognitive behavioral therapy tools to teach you how to look at the ways your thinking patterns influence your feelings about yourself and ultimately how you behave in your life.

Are you feeling confused and isolated due to a loss ? It is hard to come to terms with the idea we are grieving. While many people can easily relate grief to the death of a person or pet, suffering, in reality, expands across so many areas that we encounter on a day-to-day basis. Maybe you are going through a breakup or struggling with fertility, or you just found out your favorite coworker is moving to a new company. Perhaps you finished that last sip of wine that you brought back from the trip of a lifetime. There are many reasons to grieve, and unfortunately, when we don't know how to process grief , it can make us feel trapped.

Persons seek therapy when they experience stress, conflict, or loss that cause unhappiness and reduce effectiveness. They are affected negatively by pressure and problems at work, family, and relationships. Individuals come into therapy with their own particular needs shaped by disappointments and failures in some aspect of living in their world. With my guidance, together we create a treatment program which addresses their specific concerns. My approach is interpersonal, supportive and direct. I focus on helping my clients obtain relief from emotional distress and develop strength and awareness to deal successfully with events that confront them day to day.

I work with marital, couples, families and individual adults with interpersonal/intrapersonal conflict resulting in anger, anxiety, depression and grief .
I think the Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney sang it best, "I get by with a little help from my friends". All the interconnections with people, good or bad, have profoundly impacted who we are; the therapeutic relationship is another profound crossing of paths where deep calls to deep, and a little help on the journey is sacred. I work from a dynamic view of personhood and explore the interconnections of mind, body and soul. There is a profound dynamic in the therapeutic process, finding a therapist where one can feel connected to is essential to personal change through an authentic, vulnerable relationship.

"Without awareness, we are not truly alive" - James F. T. Bugental. The purpose of psychotherapy is to awaken the individual and increase insight through exploration of their life, choices, and resistance's. This examination is a personal journey and different for each person. Although difficult and challenging at times, it is a courageous endeavor that can lead to life long positive changes, new ways of being in the world, and a deeper meaning and purpose for one's life.

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a Herndon grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Herndon.
