I am a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst in private practice in Chevy Chase, MD.  Over the past 20 years I have been successfully helping adults, adolescents and children move through difficult moments and transitions in their lives. I work closely with each of my clients to understand their unique experience and collaborate with them in discovering a pathway through hard times towards a more fulfilling and positive future.

Coming to therapy can have many benefits.  It can help improve your relationships, lead to a deeper understanding of yourself and others, and ultimately resolve the barriers that may stand in the way of reaching your goals, whether in your work, your relationships or your overall well-being.  In therapy, people can discover greater personal satisfaction and the freedom to pursue a full, purposeful and productive life.
