My Approach to Helping

Through an empathic, supportive, and collaborative therapeutic approach, I will focus on helping you understand what is getting in the way of you feeling more fulfilled in life. Perhaps you question your ability to sustain meaningful and lasting relationships. Or you worry about how others see you, spend too much energy trying to please people, and doubt your attractiveness and worthiness to them. I believe therapy can help you to develop a more authentic relationship with yourself, allowing you to be more clear in your communication with others. I have ample experience and enjoy working with clients struggling with relationship issues, depression, anxiety, griefloss, and career concerns.

I work mainly from a psychodynamic perspective; my focus is on helping you to understand your current symptoms or concerns by examining both current and early life experiences and problematic relationships patterns. I believe insight gained through this process can allow you to make healthier choices and improve the quality of your life.

More Info About My Practice

I specialize in working with relationship and couples concerns, as well as multicultural and LGBTQ issues. I completed the Couples Therapy Training Program at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis. I have also completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship at The George Washington University. In addition to private practice, I work for Georgetown University's Counseling Center.

My office is located in Dupont Circle (about two blocks from the Dupont Metro station), and I offer day and evening appointments. I do not work directly with any insurance companies, but I provide my patients a weekly statement that they can use to submit insurance claims for out-of-network benefits. Please feel free to contact me via phone or email to schedule a complimentary phone consultation so that I can answer any questions you might have about my services and the therapy process.
