My Services

What kind of therapy do I provide?

Good question!  I am a therapist in Fairfax, Virginia.  If you are an adult seeking help with relationship issues, anxiety, feelings of isolation, or a traumatic experience (or numerous ones) and you are motivated to make a change, I can help you.  I work a bit differently than many therapists.  From the minute you walk in, we will begin working on what is making life hard for you, in a structured but caring way.   I don’t analyze or interpret what is going on with you, but I do pay careful attention to what YOUR concerns are, and as we look at them, you will find that you are able to work through them so that they are less painful and less anxiety-provoking.   Sessions are typically about 60 minutes long, but targeted trauma sessions may run longer.  As we work together, I will tailor a plan that works specifically for YOU.  

I am trained in TIR (Traumatic Incident Recovery) , a targeted therapy for healing trauma.  If you are troubled by past incidents that seem to get in the way of your living life more fully, this may be the treatment for you.  Please contact me for more information.

I am also trained in LSR (Life Stress Reduction), a way to work through your worries together with me, so that YOU can find relief.

How do I pay you?

I take credit cards, cash, or checks. During COVID-19, I am seeing clients through a secure online platform for sessions for everyone’s safety and well-being, and during this time I am processing electronic payments through a secure online method.  

I don’t take insurance, but if you request it, I am happy to provide you with a Superbill that you can then submit to your insurance for any Out-of-Network benefits you may be eligible for.  

What else do you offer?

I offer a blog newsletter that you can view and even subscribe to. In it, I offer insights and strategies for coping with life stress of all kinds. 

And finally you can access my Facebook Page for Videos on stress reduction, my work, and more inspiration.

How do I know you can help me?

That’s another good question.  I realize that you don’t know me yet, and I have to earn your trust.  If you are looking at my page, chances are you have been thinking about therapy for awhile now, and you want help from someone who can be caring but not judgmental. You need to feel safe and understood.  Know that I am experienced in what I do, and I am equipped to handle whatever it is you need to tell me. 


Helping you find the calm within you.
