Sees Clients In:

Join me at Bethesda Therapy as your guide in navigating the complexities of relationships and personal emotions. As a Licensed Graduate Marriage and Family Therapist (LGMFT) seeing clients in Maryland. I am committed to helping couples rediscover connection and individuals manage emotional challenges.

Couples Therapy

My approach with couples involves Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a method proven effective in strengthening emotional bonds. I understand that each relationship has its unique dynamics and challenges. In our sessions, we’ll explore not just the surface-level conflicts, but also the deeper emotional needs and patterns that fuel these disagreements. By focusing on fostering emotional intimacy and understanding, I help couples move beyond cycles of conflict to a place of mutual understanding and renewed connection.

Moreover, in recognizing that every couple’s journey is different, my therapy is tailored to meet your specific needs. Whether you’re navigating a rough patch, facing communication hurdles, or seeking to deepen your bond, our work together will aim to establish a foundation of trust, empathy, and resilience. The journey is not just about resolving conflicts; it’s about building a relationship that thrives on understanding, respect, and love.

Individual Therapy

In my work with individuals, I specialize in managing anxiety, offering a holistic and integrative approach. Utilizing techniques from psychodynamic therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and meditation, my goal is to help you understand the root causes of your anxiety and transform your relationship with your emotions. We’ll work together to identify patterns, unlock deeper self-awareness, and develop coping strategies that resonate with your personal experiences.

I believe in a therapy that adapts to you – one that acknowledges and respects your individual journey. Whether you’re dealing with stress, facing life transitions, or exploring aspects of your identity, our sessions will provide a safe and supportive space for self-discovery and growth. It’s not just about managing symptoms; it’s about empowering you to live a more fulfilling and balanced life.

A Supportive Journey

In every session, whether for couples or individuals, my focus is on creating a nurturing and non-judgmental environment. I am committed to supporting you in your journey towards emotional well-being and stronger, more meaningful relationships. Let’s embark on this path together, towards a future of growth, healing, and personal transformation.
