My Approach

I believe that everyone deserves therapy and an objective ear. I provide a variety therapy for all problems, whether they seem big or small.   


I see it as part of my job to help you understand the way you think and feel so you can have more meaningful relationships with the people around you.


I utilize a psychodynamic approach to therapy, which means that the thoughts and feelings you have can be understood through old patterns and habits - typically unconscious until pieced together and appreciated in a way that is productive for you.


Together, we'll make sense of the things in your life that are troubling you and explore ways to cope in order to help you feel less overwhelmed.


Go ahead and schedule your first appointment today, so we can see if we’re a good fit. I will get back to you within 24 hours.

About me

I’m a practicing psychotherapist in Washington, DC. I received my Master’s Degree in Counseling Education from the University of Florida,  followed by a 2-year advanced training program at The Washington School of Psychiatry in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Group Psychotherapy.


I specialize in helping powerful and accomplished individuals in their 20s and 30s thrive.


In my downtime, you'll likely find me at a spin class or a barre studio, or wandering through The District in search of the next best coffee shop. And, every once and a while my little Maltese pup, Theo, will come with me to the office ready for snuggles. 


We all go through things, and life is full of ups and downs. Discussing our issues with a professional can help us work through our problems and deal with them in a positive way. Why struggle alone?
