This is your journey.  For one reason or another you've made your way here.  Whatever the reason is, I want you to know this - your thoughts, feelings and secrets...are safe with me.  Maybe you don't have specific goals defined today.  Maybe you aren't sure where to start in therapy.  That's ok.  What you do know is that you want to feel better.  Consider creating a safe space for your journey today.  You may be surprised at where you can go.  The ultimate goal is to be able to manage one's own personal challenges, resulting in emotional stability, peace of mind, and a better life.  A major predictor of success in therapy is the relationship that develops between therapist and client.  I am not a traditional therapist who sits back and just listens.  I see myself as your agent for change - using techniques such as sensorimotor training, guided imagery, and interactive listening/shared experience.  Please visit my website,, to gain a greater understanding of how I be of help to you on your journey.  Call for an appointment when you are ready at 703-220-0107.
