My Approach to Helping

I have been a therapist for nearly 30 years and believe in the thoughtful attention to the genuine relationship we create.

Therapy provides you the place to consider your deepest questions or to resolve difficult issues in your life. Sometimes our session is about exploration of your history and how that impacts your current situation. Sometimes we consider how to create a work/life balance, often an important challenge in the Washington area. And most often we find our focus is on constructing happy and satisfying relationships with your partner, family, children and colleagues. We stay attuned to your feelings and use those to find strategies to become your best self in all sectors of your life.

More Info About My Practice

In the past few years I have become fascinated by two unintentional intertwining areas: Interpersonal Neurobiology and Dog Assisted Psychotherapy. We can understand positive and negative responses to others by knowing more about our very basic neurobiology, that is, how our (neuro) 'brain' impacts our (biology) by emitting hormones that actually bond us or repel us in virtually all interpersonal relationships.

Dogs change our neurobiology too, just by having them in the room with us. Stella (a nine-pound Shih-Tzu) has been trained as a professional therapy dog. She is likely to greet you at the door with a wagging tail and is always in sessions. The impact she has can be notable. Although mostly, she stays in her chair, she will sometimes sense something in you and sit by your feet or look at you to pet her or play. She changes the levels of tension, can be soothing, and is always there to hear and witness a difficult story or moment.
