About

Hello and thank you for considering me as your therapist.

I’m a licensed clinical social worker (LICSW) with experience supporting adult women and men struggling with anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, relationship issues, transition, emotional regulation, grief and loss, and stress management.

By providing a safe space, we work together to deepen self-understanding and self-compassion while helping you gain insight, reduce stress and anxiety, set goals, highlight strengths, plus develop and deepen coping skills. In our sessions, we’ll explore underlying issues and ways to live your best life.

As a mindfulness practitioner, yoga teacher (E-RYT 500), and small business owner with two decades of experience, I bring an eclectic mind, body, and entrepreneurial focus to my work. I’ve been called upon as a wellness expert for US News & World Reports, Washingtonian, various books, podcasts, blogs, TV, and radio.

I’m also certified in applied positive psychology, have written six books, am studying journal therapy and veterinary social work, and hold master’s degrees in women’s studies and social work.

My work incorporates various styles, namely positive psychology, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral, strength-based, and transpersonal, so our session is tailored specifically for you.

Our sessions take place over a cup of tea in a nurturing, Metro-accessible setting in Dupont Circle complete with tangible takeaways and optional homework to consider between appointments.

To schedule an appointment, please call (202.827.5425) or email me. I look forward to connecting and collaborating.
