Supportive Psychotherapy

Gender: Female

Languages Spoken:
English

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. Together we will face any changes, fears, anxiety and emotions you are experiencing, allowing you to gain more grounding and peace. I will work with you from an integrative, holistic approach to determine together what is needed for your coping, healing and self-care.

I specialize in living with illness and/or caregiving, experiencing grief, navigating relationships, dealing with anxiety and coping with unhealed past traumas. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

Often when things are difficult your best-intentioned loved ones struggle to help you fully. Outside support provides you with the objectivity and safety you need. I provide a warm, nonjudgmental presence where you can speak freely about what is occurring in your life. Together, outlining patterns and changes, we will pave a way forward.

My office is located very close to the Dupont Circle metro. If you would like further information about me or my practice, please do not hesitate to reach out. I am more than happy to set up a complimentary 20 minute phone consultation. I look forward to meeting you.
