When patients ask, “What can you tell me about your practice?" I say I am very comfortable working with adults-18 and older, couples, children and families. The patients I see in my practice are wanting help with issues of anger and stress; anxiety, panic and phobias; grief and depression; life-cycle changes; relationship issues; career challenges; and self-esteem. Coordination of care with other medical professionals is an important part of my practice and allows for opportunities to develop a comprehensive care approach to your treatment.

No, you're not crazy and there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with you! Relationships require work but maybe you’re working harder than ever and still coming up short. Still left feeling overwhelmed with emotion or anxious, angry, and confused. I get it, it's challenging, but it doesn't have to be a constant balancing act in which you’re trying to effectively manage your career, social life, family, or dating, constantly shifting yet never feeling steady. Maybe you’ve had some life transitions –a new job, recent relocation, the loss of a loved one. Change shouldn't have to feel like you'll break down at any moment.

Do you find yourself struggling to understand or help with your child or teen's emotions or behaviors? Do you sometimes feel like what you’re doing is not enough? Children and teens are developing at a rapid and different pace than adults are. They have different ways of understanding their own world, expressing and managing emotions, and interacting with others. While at times, guardians may feel stuck, the child or teen may feel the same way, yet struggle to process and understand how they’re feeling. Without proper coping tools, support, and warmth, they may find themselves struggling further. This is where I can help.

What type of McLean mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in McLean?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
