9 Years Experience
Marriage and Family Therapist
23 Years Experience
Families usually come to me because they're ready for something different. Their kids have outgrown the blank-slate nice therapist who has a picture of rocks or lotuses on their website. Let's cut to the chase: I am passionately curious about angry children. Kids with anger issues have more untapped potential than any other population I've encountered in my 16+ years of working with children and teens. I have seen them in daycare. I have seen them in K-12 schools. I have helped them apply for college. I have been their substitute teacher, their private tutor, their babysitter, and now, their therapist. Today, I am their fiercest cheerleader. Their parents are often battered along the way with harsh judgement and fractured connections with their children. I am also the parents' fiercest cheerleader. If you're ready to dive deep into your angry kid's inner world and join me as I help them learn to love themselves and use their fiery spirit for good, hit me up. I can't wait to meet you!
8 Years Experience
Psychologist, MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology
I was trained in Child and Adolescent Psychology at Duke University, and did a child and adolescent internship at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. For many years, I have offered individual, family and group psychotherapy for children and adolescents in the Washington, DC metro area. I also work with their parents and I coordinate with their schools and universities, as needed. Now I work globally with online networks, so I am not constrained by distance. I have led groups for children of divorce as well. I offer regular free zoom seminars every few weeks, which are appropriate for adolescents and adults. My approach involving relaxation, music and imagery can provide a way of healing for children of all ages using their imagination. Over the years I have dealt with bed-wetting, encopresis, nightmares, learning disabilities, autism and Asperger’s, selective mutism, behavioral and school problems. Children are often resilient and respond well to psychotherapy. Please feel free to call for more information: 301-229-8000.
