I provide individual therapy for adults and adolescents. As a generalist practitioner, I treat a wide range of psychological disorders and presenting concerns. I welcome clients of all sexual orientations, gender identities, faiths, nationalities, and ethnic backgrounds.
My approach to individual therapy is to listen, help you express all your thoughts and feelings, support you in tolerating those feelings that are particularly distressing, and promote insight into the problems for which you’re seeking therapy. At times, I may also call attention to the therapeutic relationship as a way of better understanding how you respond to and relate with others. The goal is to help you feel better at work, love, and play, and to face life’s ups and downs with resilience and freedom.
I provide counseling to couples who would like to improve communication and address issues in their relationship. The goal of couples counseling is not necessarily to keep you in a relationship or help you leave a relationship. Rather, we will work towards better self/other understanding, identify strengths in the relationship as well as barriers to intimacy, gain insight into maladaptive relationship patterns, and find more effective ways to meet each partner’s needs.
All therapy sessions are 50 minutes long, by appointment, Monday through Saturday.
If you are considering therapy, you are welcome to call me for a free consultation at 202-854-8369. If I cannot offer the services you need, I will gladly provide referrals to other professionals in the community.
