Our relationships form the basis for a balanced life. I empower you and your family to heal, cope, recover, and grow.

I am a fully licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) based in Washington, DC. To learn more about me, click here.

The concept of family therapy is simple. I consider the family and community context of how we develop, manage choices, and build relationships.

When working with children, I also include parents and siblings. I will often even consider history as far back as the womb. It is an adventure that you will author.

I can help you recover you relational balance with yourself, your loved ones, your friends, and those in your daily life. This includes a complete assessment, review of attachments, traumatic or adverse experiences, development of coping skills, and improvement of competence in managing daily life. Those who have benefitted include individuals, couples, children, and families. I welcome all life styles ages, races, religions, and sexual orientations. We all are constantly changing and possess the power to heal.
