I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been practicing in the field of mental health for over 15 years. My concentrations include treatment of mood disorders, relationship difficulties, and life coaching. In addition to private practice, I’m on the faculty in the Family Medicine Residency Program at MedStar Franklin Square Hospital and Georgetown University School of Medicine, where I teach medical students and residents about the integration of mental health, wellness, and health behavior change into primary care.

The fundamental philosophy of my teaching and practice is that people are inherently capable of change. I believe that with mindfulness and support there is limitless opportunity for one’s growth and development. In my experience, I have found that by helping clients increase their awareness of themselves, their interactions with others,and the behaviors that inhibit functioning, they are able to identify and utilize their core strengths and create for themselves a happier and more balanced life.

My approach to treatment includes both cognitive and behavioral methods. Therapy is an interactive and collaborative process and clients are encouraged to actively participate. I create a safe and judgment free environment where clients can gain insight and awareness and focus on solutions.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 15 years experience in supporting people of all ages navigate both distressing and exciting life transitions. I believe that to achieve true wellness and find balance in life, it is necessary to attend to the body, mind, heart and spirit. I also believe that everyone has inherent strength to achieve great potential by overcoming life’s most difficult challenges and healing from painful experiences.

Whether you are seeking a shorter term “tune-up” or a longer therapeutic relationship, I am here to support you. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, depending on an individual’s needs and goals: mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and (shorter term) solution-focused brief therapy. Together, we will explore your values, hopes and expectations as they relate to your therapeutic goals.
