I have over 20 years of experience working with those whose lives have been touched through adoption .
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and move forward into the life you long to have. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve the challenges you face. We will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from the life you deserve. I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. This first step is the hardest. Let's take it together.

The decision to begin/return to therapy can be complicated. Some believe they should be able to "fix" problems independently, and place undue blame on themselves for being stuck in cycles of depression/anxiety, disordered eating, malfunctioning relationships, self-harm, etc. Through my work as a Clinical Psychologist, I've come to believe that it takes courage to recognize that aspects of one's life aren't working, and to seek support in making positive changes. During therapy, I work with clients to identify areas of life they'd like to change, and together, we explore past experiences that may have contributed to current struggles.

It’s been my lifelong desire and a source of deep personal satisfaction to be able to assist people who are in distress to find ways to resolve the struggles and challenges they are having, and have enjoyed helping others as I've been helped. From an early age I have known, and have come increasingly to understand, how key psychology – our understandings and attitudes - is to happiness and success, a sense of well-being, and good functioning in all areas of life. If you want that, or just want to stop hurting and feeling bad and to have better relations with the people who are important to you, I would be happy to help!

If you’re considering therapy, chances are there are aspects of your life that aren’t going well. Maybe your relationships are unfulfilling. Maybe you’re having a hard time adjusting to a change or traumatic experience. Maybe you’ve been feeling down, on edge, or defeated. Maybe you blame yourself for your problems. Maybe you’re not even sure why, but you know you’re not as satisfied as you want to be. Therapy is a place where you can better understand the issues that are getting in the way of your happiness, explore options for a more fulfilling future, and get support as you contemplate change or adjust to a difficult reality.

I believe that everyone deserves a space to feel heard as they navigate in a new direction, away from feeling disconnected, stuck, and isolated. I will collaborate with you by helping you identify and shift negative or limiting perceptions, in order to create room instead for empowering perspectives that can better serve you going forward. I provide a safe, supportive, and warm environment as you begin to face whatever obstacles that initially brought you to therapy, and help you manage the conflicting feelings that often accompany this process.

I am a clinical psychologist practicing in Tysons Corner, Virginia and the Friendship Heights area of Northwest Washington, DC, and treat adolescents, adults, and couples. My approach is interactive, hopeful, and supportive. Some of my specialty areas include depression, anxiety, self-esteem, relationships, and adolescent distress (including parent/teenager communication). I work in a collaborative and flexible manner. I help clients to gain greater insight into their behaviors, thought patterns, and emotional reactions. As self-awareness develops, clients report an increased sense of control over their choices, improved self-worth and, as a result, more rewarding relationships and fulfilling lives.
