I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 31 years experience in a variety of mental health settings, including the Bethesda Naval Hospital outpatient psychiatry department where I interned as part of my graduate studies. After receiving an M.S.W., wanting to deepen my clinical knowledge, I pursued further training in psychodynamic/psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the postgraduate level, in continuing education, and in consultation. I have been treating individuals and couples in private practice for 18 years.
My style is warm, interactive, and collaborative. I provide a secure space for you to develop a stronger, more resilient inner self, as well as more meaning and satisfaction in relationships.
