My Approach to Helping

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths

- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

More Info About My Practice

Do you constantly worry- about work, relationships, family- seemingly everything? Are you often tense, anxious, on edge? You know "logically" you have little reason to worry, but you feel powerless to control it. You can't sleep because you're trapped by racing thoughts, rehashing things you said yesterday, reviewing tomorrow's to-do list?

You just want to be free to live your life without the shackles of worry or the foggy darkness and I can help! I have experience working with a range of issues, and specialize in treating anxiety & OCD, relationship difficulties, and sexual trauma. I work collaboratively to help you identify problematic patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and guide you in learning and implementing strategies to change these cycles. We can explore why these issues developed to better understand how to overcome the patterns learned long ago. I offer support, guidance, and authentic feedback, challenging and empowering you to live a more fulfilling life.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

My primary goal is to provide a safe, comfortable space for you to explore your issues. By integrating methods that are supported by scientific evidence within both individual and couples therapy, I have helped many clients make changes to reduce and manage problems through a balance of self-acceptance and change. Many of my clients find that therapy helps them feel less anxious, become more confident and empowered, and develop more intimate and satisfying relationships.

Because I feel it is important to find a therapist that you connect with, I offer a 30 minute phone consultation to answer any questions you might have and get a sense of how I might be able to help you.
To offer flexibility, I practice in 2 convenient locations: Tyson's Corner and Arlington, just 1 block from the Rosslyn metro.
