As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in private practice in Bethesda, MD, I work with adults who are struggling with their personal relationships or experiencing symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression.  I offer counseling services for individuals, couples, parents and groups in a warm and supportive environment.

I strive to develop an honest, open and trusting relationship wherein a client feels safe and understood, and able to express themselves without fear of judgment. I encourage my clients to face what they find most uncomfortable: change.  Together, we identify goals and explore strategies for reaching those goals.  In this way, I help my clients learn to manage any challenge that  comes their way.

Groups

Group counseling is a powerful way to learn about yourself, and gain insight into issues of concern.  It allows you to learn from others how to manage a particular situation, as well as to share your own strategies and solutions.   By joining with others who are having similar experiences, group members learn that they are not alone in their feelings or experiences.  They gain comfort from connecting with others in similar situations and exchanging ideas and strategies.
