My Approach to Helping
The essence of my practice is warmth and caring. I strive to help each client feel safe, secure and trusting, which is the foundation for intra-psychic work and personal growth. With mutual trust, we collaborate to help you or your child gain an awareness and understanding of the challenges and issues. With greater insight, I help my clients build the capacity to best achieve the life they desire.
As a professional psychotherapist for 25 years in Arlington and McLean, I have experience, knowledge and training in multiple treatment modalities to help clients build capacities. Yet, paradoxically to my clinical experience, when I work with children and teens, my affect is still very energetic and youthful so that engagement and positive working relationships develop easily.
