Psychotherapy and Counseling Services
Transitions are hard – and life in Washington DC in particular offers a lot of them. Moving, relationships, career, family – whether you’re dealing with “good” changes or “bad” ones, they can all bog you down.
Whether you're trying to make changes, or are dealing with unwanted changes that happened to you, having someone to talk to and help you work through these changes can be enormously helpful. I'm an experienced and specially trained therapist, who can help you take the overwhelming changes in life, and turn them into changes for the better.
I keep thinking of all the folks I've worked with who tell me when Dad gets old he's going to take himself out back and be done with it. That's not real life. We age, we mature, we get sick, and – yup – we all eventually die.
Think of it this way: You have medical specialists for your various physical needs and conditions. I can be your specialist for the emotional needs that emerge during illness – whether it's a new and scary diagnosis, chronic illness, or approaching death. You don't have to go it alone.
Sometimes the hardest decisions are overwhelming but you also know they're necessary. If you feel scared, threatened, or unsafe in your relationship, there are paths out – and safety, well-being, and success ahead, even if you can't imagine getting there yet.
It makes sense that you’re uncertain, confused, and feeling stuck or paralyzed, but you don’t have to stay in those feelings (or your situation) forever. I can be a trusted, supportive, experienced person who’ll walk with you through the decision, and all that it means. You can do this, with some solid, professional support.
