Leadership & Career Coaching
The best way to change the world starts with getting very clear about who you are, what you want, and what you are willing to do to get yourself there. Through a coaching relationship, I can help you pinpoint your passions, combat your fears, overcome the barriers keeping you stuck, and develop a plan to move forward in your career and in your life.

It's time to unleash you. I can be a powerful asset if you are ready to take that next step in life.
Individual Therapy for Adults
Are you overwhelmed, frustrated or feeling lost in your life or career? Maybe you want to heal wounds that have festered or forge a different relationship with yourself, a partner, a future partner or with a family member? No matter what brings you, I look forward to helping you to find your voice, reclaim your strength, and ignite your spirit.
I believe in the power of empathic relationships to unleash human potential, and I draw from evidence-based approaches that integrate the mind and the body to promote healing. I am trained in Level I Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the treatment of Trauma, brief (ACT), and I draw from Positive Psychology and MB-CBT to catalyze behavior change and support emotional growth.
I take insurance and can also provide monthly statements to help clients get reimbursed by their insurance companies. My office is located right next to the Dupont Circle Metro at 1606 20th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20009.
