For more than two decades, I have dedicated my service to clients in the Washington, DC area. I offer compassionate, solution-focused counseling and strategies to boost communication skills and increase feelings of trust, good will and connection. I am also a parent who is familiar with the joys and struggles that go along with raising a family in Washington, DC.
Scheduling is flexible in that I can often meet with you within a week or two of your initial email, text or call. New parents are welcome to bring babies and toddlers to our sessions. When we meet we will talk about what brings you here and what’s happening in your life. I consider and honor differences in how people think and feel. You will be comfortable and supported in whatever style suits you best during our sessions
We all feel discouraged sometimes and we all want to be seen and loved for who we are.
Life does not always go where we expect it to – disappointments, losses and transitions do happen. I offer an artful blend of compassion and insight with sound science as our base. Let’s tap into your inner wisdom and together, forge a path forward. This path can include laughter, joy and feeling at home in who you are despite the challenges you are facing.
There is no one right way to communicate, the key is understanding what makes each other tick and learning how to connect effectively.
Adults consult with me for help making sense of their relationships with friends, partners and family. Managing stress, anxiety, self-doubt and sadness are also issues we can work on together. I also consult with parents and families who may have concerns or need help connecting with their child/teen or young adult. As an individual, couple and family systems therapist, I specialize in transitions across the life cycle.
Why not make time for you? The services I offer are listed above to the right. Please contact me for a complimentary telephone consultation so we can talk about how I might be able to help.
We can learn something new anytime we believe we can.”
