Welcome to my practice! I am a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in Washington DC. I provide confidential individual, group and couples therapy to adult and adolescent clients. I have experience working with a diverse clientele and welcome individuals from all racial and ethnic backgrounds. In my practice, I work as a generalist and treat individuals and couples on a wide variety of presenting issues and concerns.
As the effectiveness of therapy relies on forming a collaborative, trusting relationship with your therapist, it is important to find someone who is a good match for you. I invite you to explore my website in order to learn more about me and my practice. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule an initial consultation.
