I am conducting appointments in my office located in Fairfax City and via teletherapy. My teletherapy services are available to individuals located across the 36 states participating in the the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT). Please use the contact page to inquire about services.
Depression, anxiety, stress, and relationship difficulties are some of the most common and uncomfortable feelings that we experience in our lives. Counseling can help you find motivation, perspective, and balance in your life. I work with adults and adolescents presenting a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, physical ailments, life transitions, relationship conflicts, LGBTQ+ issues, and academic struggles. My practice is gender-affirming and I am experienced at working with clients representing different communities. I am holistic in my work and I am able to integrate both mental health and career counseling if this approach fits your needs.
Men who experience stress and anxiety around work, physical health symptoms, relationships, parenting, and intimacy benefit from collaborative and goal-directed therapy. Through our work together, you will enhance insights into your strengths, aspirations, and areas for growth. The self-awareness and behavioral changes you develop through counseling lead you to a healthier and more fulfilling life.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to resolve conflicts and strengthen their emotional connection. Couples therapy is a supportive place to discuss issues and practice effective communication and problem solving skills. I have experience working with partners who identify as LGBTQ+ and I always strive to create a safe therapeutic environment for everyone who walks through my door. Please contact me to see if my practice may be a good fit.
Couples who are considering marriage or who want to strengthen their commitment may benefit from therapy. We work together to enhance communication and conflict resolution skills, discuss important issues that affect the relationship (e.g., finances, household responsibilities, intimacy, religion, career, parenting), and create a plan to further mutual understanding and respect.
Making a career transition requires you to develop insights into your values, interests, personality, and skills. After learning more about you and your needs, we may utilize a variety of career assessments, interactive tools, and self-reflection techniques to take that next step in your professional life. I also provide hands-on assistance with resumes, cover letters, and interview strategies. My goal is to help you to identify career options and develop an action plan to find a meaningful career.
I have been providing evidence-based therapy to individuals and couples in the Northern Virginia and DC area since 2007. I am licensed as a psychologist in Virginia, the District of Columbia, and Maryland and recognized by the National Register of Health Service Psychologists. I served as executive director of the Georgetown University Career Center for 11 years and received training in conducting a federal job search.
I specialize in the integration of mental health and career counseling, depression, anxiety, couples counseling, premarital counseling, and men's health and wellness. My practice is rooted in interpersonal process therapy, developmental, and cognitive-behavioral approaches designed to help you reach your full potential and feel fulfilled in work and relationships. We work together to enhance your self-knowledge and insights, develop strategies to manage your career, and strengthen the skills necessary to have satisfying relationships.
My promise is to help you to create a path to wellness so that you can focus on the aspects of your life that bring meaning and fulfillment. Better therapy leads to a better you.
