I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a BA degree from UNC Chapel Hill and a MS degree in Clinical Counseling from Johns Hopkins University. I have over 20 years experience in the field working with children, adolescents and adults. My career includes In-Home Therapist in Northern Virginia then private practice in Washington, DC.
As a psychotherapist, I believe in the strength of the therapeutic relationship and work to create caring, respectful and trusting relationships with each client so he or she can feel comfortable sharing thoughts and feelings. Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) I challenge my clients to explore alternative ways to behave and think about their issues so they can improve their lives. I work with children, adolescents and adults on a variety or issues including anxiety, depression, self esteem, grief, trauma and relationship issues.
I am the founder and clinical director of District Therapy Associates. After serving as a sole practitioner for over 15 years, I expanded my practice in order to serve more clients in the DC metro area. My associates are a diverse group of therapists of different backgrounds and genders, who focus on a variety of clients including children, adolescents, adults and couples.
