Compassionate Focused Therapy
for Individuals & Couples
My practice offers inclusive and compassion focused individual and couple counseling and consultation. I help people learn how to observe their thoughts and feelings with less judgment. Mindfulness, empathy and self-compassion training is also offered. For couples, the Gottman method is an evidence-based approach to help you connect and communicate effectively to build a joyful connection and friendship with your partner.

My style is active, warm, non-judgmental with a little gentle humor, as well. I consider and honor differences in how men and women think and feel. Should you decide to consult with me, you will be comfortable and supported in whatever style suits you best. There is no one right way to communicate, the key is understanding what makes each other tick and learning how to connect effectively.

We all want to be seen and loved for who we are. We don’t want to feel stuck or worried or stressed. My practice includes counseling and support for individual adults, couples, interfaith couples, co-parents, new parents, families, mothers, fathers, teens, and women who may be struggling with the symptoms of postpartum depression. I also consult with parents who may have concerns about their child/teen and adults who want to make sense of their relationships with their own parents.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and family therapist with more than twenty years of ongoing training and clinical experience. I offer research-based strategies to increase feelings of trust, good will and connection.

In addition to my private practice, I am also a writer, editor and community builder. I have lived in the Washington, DC area for more than thirty years. As a family systems therapist I specialize in transitions across the life cycle.
