Ages range from 20-40. There is no theme, and it is ongoing and open-ended, meaning that no topic is off-limits. The therapist will often times bring group members to their here and now experience in an attempt to encourage engagement in real time with other group members. All members are required to either be in their own individual therapy or have spent a significant amount of time in individual therapy as it is a high-functioning group meant to challenge individuals and create discomfort. This is not a support group, but rather a safe space to examine oneself internally and externally in the presence of others.
I enjoy working with adolescents and adults presenting with concerns around relationships and attachment, self-esteem, life transitions, and identity. Although I work primarily from a psychodynamic perspective, I incorporate Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) and Dialectical-Behavioral (DBT) therapeutic techniques when clinically appropriate. I earned my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The George Washington University and have worked at various hospitals, schools, college counseling centers, and mental health clinics.
Whether it be with individuals, couples, groups, or families, I strive to facilitate a deepening of the relationship with self and other.
Additionally, I offer consultations, presentations and workshops geared toward integrating physical and emotional health and wellness practices. Please inquire if interested to learn more.
