I think of therapy as a creative and collaborative process that allows for a deeper, more integrated sense of oneself to emerge over time.
Clinical Psychologist in Arlington, VA
I have extensive experience in working with Veterans and active military members. Most of my clinical training was accomplished with VHA and DOD. My heart is fully with those who have sacrificed to serve our country and I have a deep understanding of the issues our heroes often bring home with them. I have intensively treated Veterans and service members with PTSD, addiction issues, serious mental illness, life and role transitions, grief, civilian reintegration, and mood disorders.
Both in my time working with Veterans and in my private practice I have worked with individuals and couples who are navigating the difficulties of relationships. Whether those are marriages, family, friends, or others, going through relational difficulties is often an isolating and lonely experience. You should not have to fear judgement or criticism, nor should you have to walk through those difficulties alone.
During my time in private practice, and prior to my experiences with VA and DOD, I worked in an acute care facility, where I focused largely on the effects and healing from personality disorders. It takes a nuanced approach and deep clinical understanding to be able to align with someone dealing with a personality disorder without judgement or biased. We all deserve to have a fulfilling life and solid relationships, which is often the distressing fallout of these disorders.
