I am a licensed clinical Washington DC psychologist and licensed Virginia psychologist practicing in Tysons Corner, VA and the Friendship Heights area of Northwest Washington, DC. I offer expertise in psychotherapy for adults, teenagers and couples. I tailor treatment to individual history and problem areas. Treatment occurs in a safe, supportive and healing environment.
The Relationship Formula Workbook Series consists of 4 brief workbooks (all under 70 pages) designed to help people who struggle with romantic relationships. The workbooks in this series include: Breaking Up & Divorce 5 Steps–How To Heal and Be Comfortable Alone; Building Self-Esteem 5 Steps– How To Feel “Good Enough” About Yourself; Toxic Love 5 Steps–How To Identify Toxic Love Patterns and Find Fulfilling Attachments; Getting Close To Others 5 Steps– How To Develop Intimate Relationships and Still Be True To Yourself. She is also the author of the acclaimed book Having Sex, Wanting Intimacy about why women may settle for one-sided relationships.
I have a long-term interest in the impact of gender and culture on identity, self-esteem and relationship development. I am available for media inquiries, consulting and public speaking on how culture affects female identity, empowering girls for reciprocal relationships, developing healthy self-esteem, and how adult women can develop emotionally intimate, romantic, relationships. I also speak to groups of parents, educators, teens and singles who want to learn more about developing an ‘emotional toolkit’ that fosters the strengths necessary for building mutually, healthy friendship and romantic partnership.
