As a longtime resident of Northern Virginia, I know personally that there are unique aspects to living in this area that can magnify the anxiety and pressure that we feel. I primarily work with adolescent girls (14+) and women who are overwhelmed by their stress at school, work, or home as well as those stuck in a transition - whether that be adjusting to high school, college, post-college life, post-partum life, pandemic life, a relationship or family change, a loss, and more.

Do you or your family worry about your thinking abilities? Have you always wondered whether your diagnosis is accurate or wished that you had a more comprehensive evaluation of your symptoms? I perform neuropsychological and psychological evaluations that integrate various cognitive and emotional traits into a personalized and thorough evaluation. I regularly perform forensic neuropsychological and psychological evaluations for the court system. As a board certified neuropsychologist, I often perform cognitive testing to assess skills such as intelligence, attention, processing speed, executive functioning, language, and memory.

Therapy is a chance to slow down and step into a safe, confidential space away from the external world to explore your inner one. To sit in a quiet room with another human being who is unconditionally kind but honest, and also trained to recognize patterns of unhealthy behavior, irrational thinking, and the invisible blocks that keep you from being the best version of yourself. I invite you to begin your counseling journey with me and start this process of untangling emotional knots and using these insights to make positive changes in your life.

Isolated. Sleeping weird hours. No motivation. Hardly eating or eating a lot. Feeling alone. Lethargic. Waking often or afraid. Poor focus. There’s often more to add to the list – crying or panic, anger or fear. And the worse you feel, the more isolated, the more lethargic, the more unfocused you can become. Where to begin? How to unravel all that is swirling and turn the momentum in a positive direction? The real question is: How can you be, not just feel, but actually be, more connected to the things you value, the things that are most important to you?

I enjoy working with high achievers who are navigating the vicissitudes of life; people who want to understand themselves better; and people who, at their core want to grow in consciousness and heal heart-breaking experiences. I believe that we are spiritual beings having human experiences. The journey in consciousness involves the healing of the heart, soul, mind, and body. Such healing and integration serve to illuminate our genuine selves and brighten our inner spiritual light; a light that illuminates our true selves as soul, and by extension, our unique creativity, work, and contributions to the world.

Emotional/behavioral problems are a part of life and can affect any human being regardless of age, race, social status. There is no shame in seeking help when one is vulnerable as you would if you were suffering from any other illness. Life brings tremendous challenges to all of us and it takes strength to confront them and improve the quality of our life. We can't change our past but we can change our relationship to it. I am partnered up with a physician board certified in psychiatry and addiction medicine to provide comprehensive treatment if medication is needed.
