Psychologist in Washington, DC
I have worked with many types of trauma and PTSD. I have helped people reclaim agency and confidence in their lives and over their bodies after sexual traumas, medical traumas, and physical injuries. I have also helped people make sense of the confusion in their lives that can arise from the trauma of abusive and neglectful caregivers in early life. Trauma robs you of your sense of self and of a sense of having a future that feels alive; I can help you to reclaim a sense of hope for your life.
I have worked my entire career in the areas of sex and sexuality, specializing in working with LGBTQ concerns. I create a welcoming space in therapy to address the additional challenges that identifying as a sexual and/or gender minority can bring. Together, we can build more resilience and help you to manage your understandable feelings from the stresses of stigma and micro (and macro) aggressions you face.
Anxiety is an every day experience. Learning to manage anxiety is necessary in life since anxiety is expected (and can be helpful). But sometimes, the ways we have learned to cope with life's stresses, or specific ways we've learned to connect with others may perpetuate additional stresses. I can help you to better understand the patterns you engage in that can increase the anxiety you feel in your life. Together, we can learn how to reduce your anxiety and create more empowered ways of living.
