I am committed to helping individuals and couples gain insight and make behavioral changes to enhance their lives. My focus is on relationships (whether with friends, family, romantic partners or work) as I believe fulfillment in these realms is an important aspect of living a satisfying and purposeful life.
I also work with those struggling with addictions, compulsions, and self-destructive behavior (especially eating disorders) and the competing demands of life. My professional strengths are reflected in a nonjudgmental stance and an ability to help people examine themselves and make the changes necessary to live in a more fulfilling life. My understanding of people and the psychotherapeutic process is psychodynamic. My method of practice focuses on forming a therapeutic relationship with each client. Through this process, I learn more about the individual, what may be effective in alleviating their distress and helpful to them in leading a satisfying life.
I work with adults individually, in couples, and in ongoing (co-ed and single sex) psychotherapy groups. I believe a setting in which a client feels secure, respected, and understood is critical to a positive outcome in therapy. I was included in the Washington Magazine list of Best Therapists.
