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 at any stage of their relationship who would like to improve communication, address an issue, or live more authentically with one another. Couples therapy can help you and your partner:
- strengthen communication
- address concerns with physical intimacy and sex
- process emotional or physical infidelity
- better understand yourself and your partner
- gain insight into maladaptive relationship patterns and barriers to intimacy
- find more effective ways to meet each partner’s needs
- make decisions about the future (e.g., relationship status, family planning, shared goals)
To accomplish any number of these tasks, it is crucial to build a safe, nonjudgmental space in which we can take a look at your experiences (both internal and external) with openness and curiosity. If you are ready to begin this process, please call me to set up an initial appointment.
As of 2020, I have completed an advanced training program in couples therapy from the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis in Washington, DC.
All therapy sessions are 50 minutes long, by appointment, Monday through Friday.
