My intention is to help you support your own well-being, health, and happiness with the tools you acquire through our wellness and counseling services. As a licensed acupuncturist, clinical psychologist and counselor, I have provided integrative, holistic practices in acupuncture, body therapy, life/wellness coaching, and counseling since the 1980s, and have been cited in Washingtonian Magazine as being among the most highly regarded practitioners in my field. I see you as a whole person instead of merely a set of symptoms, working with you to cultivate and support your inner self-regulating mechanisms that help to maintain harmony in your well-being, health, and personal and professional relationships.
In psychotherapy, I provide a calm, welcoming setting to give you space to explore your feelings, emotions and behaviors, gain awareness, process problems, develop practical coping techniques, and help increase your capacity for growth and wellness. In couples therapy and relationship counseling, I help you and your partner find better ways to talk to each other, discover effective methods to help you decrease contention, and to build a solid relationship foundation that can strengthen respect, esteem, fulfillment, intimacy, tenderness, and mutual support.
My comprehensive methods honor the body-mind connection. I use a wide range of complementary therapies, focusing on essential qualities that amplify the strengths that are already within you, to help you flourish and become successful in handling life’s challenges.

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 32 years experience serving the LGBT community. I am included in Washingtonian magazine’s list of “Top Therapists.”
