My Approach to Helping

I offer a safe space, without judgment, and without pressure. I’m informal, friendly, kind, approachable, caring, competent, and compassionate. My number one goal is to help you feel relief, and more connected to the real you.

Every day I help my clients cope with issues like:

Overwhelming stress
Anxiety and depression
Infertility, pregnancy loss, and prenatal & postpartum mood disorders
LGBTQ relationships and family building
Creating and maintaining healthy relationships
Learning to be okay with being vulnerable

Many of my clients have never seen a therapist before. In therapy, you get to talk about whatever is on your mind. It’s a freeing experience. You can be you, unfiltered. I’ll ask you questions. We’ll find some options.

More Info About My Practice

At Rock Creek Counseling, we love therapy! We're enthusiastic therapists with years of experience and we're also mental health researchers! I love to geek out on therapy, human behavior, social work interventions, and brains! I'm always excited to talk about the how's and why's of therapy. Beyond that, I see the evidence that therapy works because people heal. My approach is compassionate and kind. I love to laugh with you and I will be there to explore your darkness together. Therapy is a journey of self-discovery where we explore how issues impact your life in the here and now, and we find tools that make sense for who you are as a unique individual. No cookie cutter approaches here! The best indicator of success in therapy is that you feel comfortable with your therapist! Please reach out so we can chat and see how we can best partner in getting you to where you want your mental health to be!

My Therapy Focus

I am a good listener and I love sharing the ins and outs of how therapy works. I'm always excited to talk about how and why different therapies work! My approach blends cognitive, behavioral, and psychodynamic therapies with solution-focused, person-centered, and trauma-informed approaches. We'll find the tools that make sense for the unique person you are and the unique circumstances you bring.Together we will laugh! Sessions deal with serious issues but we don't have to take ourselves too seriously. We bring the intensity when it's needed and take a breather from emotionality when you want to. We will talk about whatever is on your mind.
