Welcome! Silver Spring, Maryland
I believe that people generally do the best they can, and that all of us go through periods of our lives when we can use some extra help. With over 10 years of experience as a therapist, I provide a safe and confidential space where individuals and families can speak openly and honestly about their concerns.
My clients tell me that our work together has helped them to feel calmer, more clear about who they are, and more empowered to make changes in their lives and in their relationships.
Contact me to schedule an appointment. Day and evening appointments are available.
Do you need someone to talk with about what is troubling you? It is time to seek therapy when your troubles are beginning to interfere with your work, your relationships, or your health. I think of individual therapy as an ongoing conversation between the two of us, with a focus on the goals and concerns that are most important to you.
Typical issues addressed in my practice include: sadness, anxiety, losses, life transitions, and relationship difficulties. I treat Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder using exposure with response prevention, the leading cognitive-behavioral treatment for OCD.
Helping Families and Couples
Would you like to improve your relationship with your partner? Does it feel like the two of you are having the same arguments again and again? Do you and your partner -- or you and your adult children -- need to sit down and talk about something important, but you're not sure how to get started? Couples and family therapy can help.
Supporting Family Caregivers
Are you a parent caring for an adult child with mental illness? A grandparent raising your grandchildren? The well sibling of a brother or sister with a disability? I have a special interest and expertise in working with family caregivers. Our work together could focus on issues such as: finding time for self-care, setting limits, empowering a loved one versus enabling him/her, planning for the future, and acknowledging your own complicated feelings.
