All psychological issues are ultimately existential in origin, entailing a confrontation with death, loss, meaning, purpose and value. All that we do (knowingly or unknowingly) is dedicated to deciphering these daunting and irrepressible demands of existence. Few are successful in resolving or even clearly conceptualizing these existential issues and their minds inevitably descend into despair, depression and anxiety. Some seek to assuage their suffering with psychoactive substances (illicit and licit) and this leads only to addiction and abdication of autonomy over one's authentic self. My System offers a solution.

Got COVID stress? Or were you feeling stressed and anxious before the pandemic? If you live or work in the DC area, you are very familiar with stress. Chances are your work-life balance isn't at all balanced. Maybe you are a perfectionist always trying to do more. Maybe you are a people pleaser who struggles to say "No". Meaningful pursuits such as fulfilling relationships, personal interests and staying healthy are harder to navigate because now you have to stay home. All these factors can intensify your level of stress and anxiety.

I have provided individual, group, couples and family therapy in both school settings as well as private practice settings since the onset of my career. I utilize behavioral management tools, cognitive behavioral therapy, and creative therapies to encourage and teach children as well as adults, how to increase their sense of self and learn how to celebrate their strengths and weaknesses. I feel strongly that children respond best when they are free to explore their feelings creatively as opposed to solely participating in talk therapy. I help clients feel accountable and more importantly, recognize they have the ability to grow.

If only the image you have perfected projecting were true. Everyone seems to buy it; that you are as calm, confident, and competent as you portray yourself to be. Meanwhile, you walk around feeling like a little girl wearing her mother’s heels. The worst part is always worrying about being “found out” as the fraud that you know yourself to be. It makes it hard to be really emotionally available and honest in your relationships and you always end up feeling so alone. All the success in your professional life just makes you feel like you have that much more to lose when someone really sees what you are desperately trying to hide.

*****Very limited availability for new clients; wait list spots available***** I aim to cultivate an atmosphere in therapy that is real and honest - where my clients feel the freedom to cut the crap, not worry about saying the "right" thing, and speak candidly about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, without fear of judgment. The things that we hash through in counseling can be messy, and I deeply appreciate the vulnerability this process requires. I find that a therapeutic relationship like this - one that's safe, comfortable, authentic, and honest - is where so much growth happens.

People often seek therapy when emotions become too distressing, relationship or life circumstances are unsatisfying, and support and new strategies are needed to help the person feel and behave differently. Working with a therapist can enhance your ability to tolerate difficult situations, and make the process of personal growth and change more productive. Therapy is most effective when a collaborative relationship develops between therapist and client. I aim to create an empathetic and supportive environment, where exploring difficult issues will feel safe. Together, we will identify what has created negative emotions or life dissatisfaction, and work actively towards positive change.

Having witnessed and participated in twenty years of clients' progress, I have great confidence in this powerful process. We all want to feel optimistic and enjoy our lives, with minimal stress, doubts, anxiety, depression, and confusion. Most of us have strong and centered parts that were buried or muted as a result of trauma, loss or other painful experiences. Learning to empower these healthy parts helps us manage inevitable difficult thoughts and feelings more calmly and effectively and to enjoy healthy relationships. Depending on individual situations, short term therapy or Skype sessions may be possible.
