I work in a cognitive behavioral conceptual framework and use a range of skills and tools to help people feel better, improve functioning, and better cope with life's difficulties. These difficulties may involve stress, anxiety, depression , insomnia, bipolar disorder, OCD, anger, coping with cancer or other chronic illnesses, marital distress, interpersonal problems, or trauma/PTSD. In the process of our interactive work together, we will clarify what processes are disruptive and help you learn ways to better adjust, cope, and deal with those difficulties. In this way, stress is reduced and life satisfaction is enhanced.

My clients have experienced profound transformations as we identify the root of their issues, process painful memories, develop healthy beliefs, and amplify their strengths. Chronically depressed client started seeing life "in color" and severely anxious client drove cross country. Couples on the brink of divorce renewed their covenant and a divorced couple remarried one another.

So many of us present a high-functioning face to the world, but our inner lives tell a different story. Depression , anxiety, and other issues are natural byproducts of the stressful lives we lead. I work with adults, teens (16 and older), couples, and families, ranging from adolescents facing developmental struggles to stay-at-home parents and Beltway professionals. As a native Northern Virginian, I can relate to the challenges of living in this frenetic environment. My previous military and consulting experience give me an understanding of issues that busy professionals deal with like self-care and work-life balance.

It can be a difficult decision to seek help when your life is feeling off track or stuck in patterns that are not serving you. Particularly in our current climate of increased anxiety and rising levels of depression , it’s crucial that you have a sense of comfort and emotional safety with the person with whom you work to explore the issues that confront you. I implement an individualized course of therapy for each client using a combination of psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and relational techniques. I offer a free consultation in order for us to decide if I might be a good fit for you.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in McLean. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
