About

I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in Bethesda, Maryland.  I have worked in mental health for over two decades serving individuals and families.  I trained and worked in both public and private clinics, substance abuse facilities, psychiatric hospitals, and emergency rooms in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

I believe that the core principle of psychotherapy is about partnership.  I work in an interactive way with patients to assist them in exploring their life difficulties and becoming "unstuck" .  This is important so that patients can break out of the negative patterns that have prevented them from progressing in life and hurting less.  My core method is a cognitive behavioral approach.  This means that in therapy we will look at your thoughts, feelings, and actions to see how they impact how you respond to yourself and others.  I enjoy helping others and seeing them hurt less and move forward to a happier place in their lives.  

My office is conveniently located at 4400 East West Highway in Bethesda, Maryland.  I welcome questions and can be reached by phone at
