I believe that our most important periods of growth come out of our most painful moments and circumstances. I have chosen this profession because I believe in the power of working though pain to a better end. I consider it a privilege and an honor to participate in your journey to wellness. I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore, in-depth, the reasons for unwanted emotions or circumstances, allowing you to overcome your challenges and to be able to better cope.
I am truly a generalist, trained to help with a wide range of concerns. However, I do have a few particular specialties. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, and disordered eating. I also specialize in couples therapy and in the treatment of children and adolescents. I am a certified Gottman couples therapist, and I use Play Therapy techniques when treating children. I am also trained in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family Systems, Psychodynamic Treatment, and Trauma-Focused CBT.
Please reach out to see if I might be the right therapist for you or your loved one.

More Info About My Practice
I offer late evening and weekend appointments. I do this because I understand the demands of daily life that are upon you, and I want therapy to work with your schedule.
I also offer two office locations for your convenience: one in DuPont Circle and one in Rosslyn.
In addition to in-person treatment, I am now offering video chat therapeutic services for Virginia residents, if and when needed.
Please reach out to inquire as to what kind of treatment might be best for you and your lifestyle.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I love my work, and I care deeply about the people I serve. I love to give others tools that increase well-being and alleviate suffering. Nothing is more important than our quality of life and our personal happiness. I cannot imagine a better way to serve others than to help them reconnect with their joy.
Each person I have worked with has taught me something, and in return, made my life fuller. I feel lucky to have learned their stories. I am someone who does what I love, and I believe that it shows in my approach to treatment.
