My Approach to Helping
We all have strengths that we can develop, as well as challenges from which we can grow. Each crisis in our lives is an opportunity for healing and growth. As your therapist, I will use a variety of techniques to help you achieve your personal, professional, and spiritual goals. My primary approach is relational, meaning I focus on the healing power of the therapeutic relationship. A dynamic, interactive, and empathic therapist, I offer advice and support when needed, and I share my own experiences when I think they will be helpful. Though I have extensive, in-depth training, I rely greatly on intuition and humor in my work.
More Info About My Practice
In addition to providing Individual and Couples therapy, I am certified in Psychoanalysis (contemporary relational approach), and I provide Consultation to licensed clinicians. I am licensed in MD, DC, and VA.
Group therapy is a wonderful way to develop and improve relationships with significant others, family members, friends and colleagues. I am currently forming (2) groups that will meet weekly starting in December:
1. Men's Group: Open to all self-identified men, this group will explore men's and other life issues in a supportive and gently challenging environment. This will be a mid-day group, scheduled to meet Tuesdays at 12 pm. Adults of all ages and cultures welcome.
2. Mixed Group: Open to adults of any gender, this group will explore gender and other life issues in a supportive and gently challenging environment. This will be an evening group, scheduled to meet Thursdays at 5 pm. Adults of all ages and cultures welcome.
I am a provider for all BlueCross BlueShield plans (including CareFirst, BlueChoice, Federal Employee Plan and Anthem) and Medicare (current clients only). I file claims for all of my clients who are using insurance, even if they are Out Of Network. I use a Sliding Fee Scale for clients whose insurance I don't accept.
My Downtown Bethesda office is accessible via Metro and bus and there is free parking on the premises.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have--I look forward to hearing from you!
