Disappointed. Depleted. Dissatisfied.

Lost. Frustrated. Bored.

I get you. Life is hard. And, on top of that, relationships are nearly impossible. We all need help not only to navigate life’s difficulties, but to find joy in the process. Try therapy. It works. With the right therapist, your life and relationships can be transformed. The lasting changes you desire become possible. I am ready to be that therapist. Because now might be the right time to become the best possible version of YOU.
Imagine no longer knocking your head against the wall. Or, no longer keeping your head in the sand. It’s time to muster the courage to admit the truth – that you need change, and you need help to do it. In our work together, I will bring my unique combination of laser-sharp emotional precision and practical depth. Together, we will thoroughly excavate your life story and discover what it is that is blocking you from getting what you want in life. But, we won’t stop there. You still need a fully stocked emotional and relational toolbox to create positive and sustainable change in your life. Through my direct approach, coated with humor and compassion, we will strengthen your emotional core and set you up for success. It’s time. Time to move past the pain, the fear and the struggle. It’s time to thrive. Dare to have more. Because you deserve it. Call Now (202) 265-5855

About Me

Helping folks become their highest, best self is my passion. We get one shot at this thing called living, and I want to help you ‘kick ass’. It’s time to unlock ‘you’ to the fullest—whether in your personal life or primary relationship. This process will allow your most authentic self to find satisfaction in work and relationships. Furthermore, you know that you can’t do it alone – you’ve already tried that. I am here to guide your path forward and upward. Believe me … we won’t take you and/or your relationship back to the place you were before. I’m not interested in that. I want to take you and your partner to the place you’ve always wanted to go but have never been. Together, we help you get the ‘more’ that you’ve always dreamed of. Wondering where to begin?

Relational Life Couples Therapy

Connection is our birthright. Close relationships keep us healthy, vital and creative. Who doesn’t want that? I do and I’m guessing that you do, too. However, most of us have no clue how to make this happen. We are flying by the seat of our pants, hoping that our relationship “works.” Do something different. Something that gives your partnership a fighting chance to flourish. Whether your relationship…
  • is just starting out and needs a strong foundation…
  • is good but not yet great…
  • is knee-deep in pain and needs a major overhaul to change entrenched patterns…
Or your relationship…
  • is on life-support and needs one last ditch effort to try and save it…
Together we can make build the relationship you desire. During our sessions, we get to the heart of the issues with extraordinary speed and precision. The process of change is accelerated to move you and your partner to a more satisfying way of relating. Read More

Modern Analytic Group Psychotherapy

Imagine character change happening before your eyes, both in you and in those seated around you. Group therapy provides an extraordinary opportunity for a “second chance” family. The setting enables you to not only learn to relate to others in an effective fashion, but works to fill-in missing pieces within yourself. This growth then provides you with a far better ability to realize your potential in life, work and love. Read More
