Washington, DC and Alexandria, VA Locations
I enjoy working with people of diverse backgrounds, cultures and orientations. The clients I have served include troubled adolescents, undergraduate and graduate students, military personnel, working adults, single mothers, and people suffering from severe and persistent mental illness. My areas of specialty include anxiety, depression, relationship problems, development of self-esteem, trauma/PTSD, insomnia, fertility concerns, childhood abuse, ADHD, eating disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. I also have experience coaching individuals through career changes as well as other life transitions.
I use an integrative approach that is tailored to every individual’s, couple’s and family’s needs. My training includes psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and experiential methods. I am also a student of mind-body practices, including Buddhist meditation, and I am searching for new ways to incorporate alternative medicine with western practices.
I have been working in the Washington DC metro area’s mental health field for over 10 years. I have held positions at Fort Meade and Fort Eustis health clinics, The Women’s Center, The Counseling Center at the Catholic University of America, the Fairfax County Juvenile Detention Center, St. Luke House, the Rock Creek Foundation, and the Holy Cross Hospital Adult Daycare Center.
I received my Bachelor of Arts degree at Georgetown University and Masters of Science in Psychology from University College London. In 2005, I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology from The American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University.
