Psychotherapy for Adults in Falls Church, VA


I am committed to helping people find relief and greater happiness. Twenty-five years of experience as a psychotherapist confirms my belief in the power of understanding and the possibility of change. The fear of change can become the excitement of discovery; avoidance and running away can transform into assertiveness; holding back can give way to reaching out; confusion can crystallize into clarity and confidence; emotional pain can transform into patience and wisdom. Together, we can work to help you find the freedom and fulfillment you seek.

In my work with people, while exploring the immediate causes and the deeper roots of problems, I use systematic approaches to help people develop emotional resilience, see new perspectives and implement new skills. I use cognitive (thought-focused), somatic (body-focused), emotion-focused, and psychodynamic approaches to promote more effective and satisfying ways of coping with life’s challenges.
