Insight. Understanding. Change.
Let me introduce myself

I practice both Psychoanalysis and Psychodynamic psychotherapy. Both treatments offer lifelong relief from depression, anxiety, relationship issues, panic disorder, eating disorders, personality problems, self-esteem difficulties, and chronic emptiness and loneliness. I have a private practice in Bethesda, Maryland where I see patients from Bethesda, Rockville, Kensington, Chevy Chase, Northern Virginia, and DC Metro Area. I also offer online therapy for patients who can’t easily get to my office.

I have been practicing Psychotherapy for over 20 years. I earned a MSW from the University of Maryland in 1992 and have been in practice since 1994. I have completed advanced training at the Washington School of Psychiatry and the Washington Center for Psychoanalysis. At the Washington Center for Psychoanalysis, I completed the modern perspectives program in addition to a year long infant observation. I am currently in study at the Contemporary Freudian Society. Over the last 13 years, I’ve worked alongside several senior analysts and psychotherapists as well as study groups in a continual effort to advance my understanding of theory and technique.

I have training in individuals, families, children and couples. I treat anger, rage, envy, jealousy, sexual abuse,neglect, and trauma. In addition, I am certified in short-term therapies for both depression and anxiety disorders.

I’m a member of NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) and NASW (National Association of Social Workers).
