Individual Therapy
Initial Consultation

Finding the right therapist can be an overwhelming process. To make the process more comfortable and to ensure that we might be a good fit to work together, I offer free initial phone consultations (15-20 minutes).

 

During the initial consultation, I will have the opportunity to learn more about you, your background, and the concerns you would like to address in therapy. You will also have the opportunity to ask me questions and get a sense of what it might be like to work together. If we decide to work together, I will explain my process and we will plan for next steps. If after the consultation it is determined that I am not the best match for your treatment needs, I would be happy to provide you with referrals and recommendations for treatment in the Washington, D.C. area. 

My Therapy Style

I strive to provide a nonjudgmental, supportive, and affirming space for all clients, regardless of who they are or what concerns they have.  From the start, I work collaboratively and creatively with my clients to provide an individualized therapeutic experience that works for them and their lives.  

 

​My approach to therapy is integrative, drawing from a variety of evidence-based theoretical approaches including Interpersonal/Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. In practice, this means that I offer a combination of warmth, honesty, and clinical expertise. I work with clients to help them understand themselves, think in new ways, learn valuable skills, and feel accepted and understood. ​

 

​People come to therapy for many reasons, some with specific goals in mind, some feeling stuck, some wanting to explore themselves, and others seeking a safe space to freely express themselves. My goal is to understand the unique constellation of your life and employ the most effective approaches to meet your needs.
