Wherever you are in your journey with your child or parent, I offer compassionate and affirming counseling and support. I am a licensed independent clinical social worker (LICSW) who offers specialized services for parents & families and their transgender/gender questioning children, teens and young adults. As an individual, couple and family therapist, I specialize in transitions across the life cycle. Contact me so we can talk about how I can help you.
I believe that successful therapy brings about concrete change, not mere insight. I use a practical, active, goal-focused approach called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I will guide you in applying a variety of strategies, skills and techniques in your daily life that will help you achieve your personal therapy goals.
I will help you discover your vicious cycles of thoughts, feelings, behaviors and core beliefs that result in depression, anxiety, relationship and/or career problems. We will jointly design weekly therapeutic homework to help you break these vicious cycles and achieve your personal goals.
It is my aim to help you become your own personal therapist so that you can continue using the strategies, skills and techniques that you learned with me to meet future challenges and achieve further goals on your own.
Anxious? Shy? Unassertive? Nervous? Self-conscious? Embarrass easily? Public-speaking fear? Avoid socializing? Difficultly meeting people? Uncomfortable in groups? Pee shy? A specialization of mine is helping people overcome social anxiety: an overblown, debilitating fear of judgment, embarrassment or rejection.
I am a licensed clinical social worker with 29 years experience serving the LGBT community. I am included in Washingtonian magazine’s list of “Top Therapists.”
We are proud to be the first locally sourced caterer in the Washington DC area, with strong support of local farmers, bakers, cheesemakers, fisherfolk, and other producers. Our meat, vegetables, fruit, dairy, and bread are purchased directly from farmers within 200 miles of the city. Active since 2007, Eat & Smile Catering continues to grow as a boutique business, working with clients to create unique events that meet their culinary and budgetary needs, as well as embracing green business practices. Rather than create set packages that include services you don’t want or need, we provide our services a la carte, allowing you to pick and choose what you want us to take care of, and leaving off what isn’t important to you. We want your event to reflect YOU in every way, and love curating special events such as weddings, birthday parties, mitzvahs, and other celebratory social gatherings.
