Practice Description: For whatever reason you've made your way here. Whatever the reason is, I want you to know this-your thoughts, and feelings are safe with me. Maybe you don't have specific goals defined. Maybe you aren't sure where to start in therapy. That's ok. What you do know is that you want to feel better. The ultimate goal is to be able to manage one's own personal challenges, resulting in emotional stability, peace of mind, and a better life. A major predictor of success in therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. I see myself as your agent for change. When you are ready call for an appointment at 703-220-0107.

Every person is unique. So it makes sense that every person has their own story and challenges. Guided therapy is essentially your journey — a way to tell your story and use its clues to address your challenges. I am your guide on this journey, and our meetings create the space for it to take place. The destination is a better life, and I have a track record of helping people get there.

"Sometimes just the telling of the story is enough to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma; similar to a soldier coming off a battlefield and de-briefing. Other times the telling of the story is not enough. More may be needed. I have specialized training in Sensorimotor psychotherapy. That is the theory that anxiety, depression, and trauma not only manifests in our thoughts, but in our physical body as well. The body feels the thoughts. The body remembers the trauma. It is in developing the awareness, in the moment, of how the thoughts impact the physical body that healing begins. Recognizing how the mind/body connection works is crucial. That's where I come in. I will work with you to develop that awareness and teach techniques that lower the physical level of stress and anxiety. It's then that the mind can better focus on the tasks ahead and make the changes you desire. Or just enjoy some peace and serenity in the moment." Call 703-220-0107
