Educated at Harvard College and George Washington University, I work to create a caring, empathic, thoughtful relationship so that we can collaborate in our understanding of feelings, patterns of relationships and the problems of living. I have more than 30 years in private practice and have been privileged to know many people in a deep way, as they have shared their lives and most important feelings with me.

Good psychotherapy can give a sense of balance and steadiness that can make you more comfortable with increased confidence and self-esteem. Good therapy can help with using talents efficiently and creatively. Your relatonships can gain in depth and will continue to improve after therapy is over.

My office is private and secluded, and not shared with anyone else. I also have many years of experience with teletherapy, using Zoom, Skype, FaceTime and phone and Skype for therapy and have found these ways of working very useful. I am licensed in Virginia, Colorado, the District of Columbia, Florida, Maryland and Washington.

The following are some of the issues I can help you with:

  • Overcoming Anxiety and Panic Attacks
  • Decreasing Depression and Irritability
  • Coping with Grief and Loss
  • Coping with Separation or Divorce
  • Finding Ways to Cope with Loneliness
  • Increasing Self Confidence
  • Smoothing out Mood Swings
  • Improving and Deepening Relationships
