Professional statement

Finding a therapist is difficult, so I hope that can end here! Open-minded collaboration is my key to successful therapy. In working together, we combine your preferences with my relaxed style and research-proven techniques that include cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and traditional talk therapies. Given that your situation will be unique to others, I make sure to complement these standard techniques with other approaches and creative thinking to make sure you move forward. Overall, we aim to explore, understand, and most importantly, take action on your issues, as well as prevent them from returning later.

We can do therapy on a short- or long-term basis. While I want you to be self-reliant, some clients choose to work with me continually for sticky challenges, maintenance, prevention, or ongoing improvement. Please call or email me for a free 15-minute consultation. If I'm not the best therapist for you, I'll point you in the right direction!

About me: I grew up in Maryland and Washington, DC. After working in a variety of fields, I became a therapist in 2017. I enjoy road trips, running, good food, and good company. I hold a BA "magna cum laude" in psychology from Duke University, master’s degrees from Johns Hopkins University and USC, and both American and European perspectives on mental health.


Message to clients

Finding the right therapist is important and a win-win for both you and your therapist. I'm happy to schedule a free 15-minute call or Zoom consultation to help you determine if my style is a good fit for you. These discussions are very open-ended. This said, I often cover the following topics with potential clients:

• General questions about therapy, its benefits, its limitations, related logistics, etc.

• What you're facing & my clinical experience with those issues

• Type of therapy you prefer (clinical or common-sense language welcome!)

• Type of therapist/personality/approach you prefer

• Building upon or reorienting from past experiences in therapy

• Working together for a limited vs. indefinite timeframe

I'd be happy to discuss these and any other questions you may have. Please do reach out!

Rob
