My Approach to Helping
For many people, the decision to enter into therapy can be daunting-- they may be unsure of what to expect, they may be uncertain if it will be helpful, and they may be fearful of the idea of sharing a side of themselves with someone they do not know. I am empathetic to these feelings and strive to create a safe and supportive environment for my clients. I believe that the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is essential to the healing process, and I collaborate with my clients to create a trusting environment.
I believe that our early experiences continue to influence our present lives and therapy can assist in gaining a fuller understanding of oneself. This can allow clients to make more satisfying choices about their relationships, career, and an authentic experience of themselves. I have experience working with adolescents and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, low feelings of self-worth, trauma, and relationship conflicts, with additional training in couple's therapy. I am conveniently located in Bethesda, MD and look forward to speaking with you about your personal journey toward healing, discovery, and growth.
