Caring and Skillful Therapy for Difficult Emotions, Behaviors, Relationships and Life Changes


In the late nineties, I co-founded the Center for Mind Body Therapies in Frederick Maryland and then later graduated from the Johns Hopkins School of Community Counseling. I have been a practicing therapist for more than 15 years.

During this time, I have deeply valued spending thousands of hours supporting and guiding individuals, couples and groups as they explore, evolve and recover.

Areas of experience and training include:

Mindfulness, cognitive, behavioral and somatic approaches to anxiety and worry (panic, generalized anxiety, PTSD, OCD, social anxiety, etc.)

– Couples therapy (Gottman and emotionally focused approaches)

– EMDR therapy for anxiety and trauma

– Women’s issues: work/life balance, relationships, self care, divorce

– Mild to moderate depression, anger and life adjustments

– The psychology of cultivating gratitude, resilience and well-being

– Difficulties with self-criticism, perfectionism and shame

Mindfulness Instruction and Groups

I am currently enrolled in year two of The Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program offered by Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield.

I believe that the practice of mindfulness in daily life promotes self-awareness, emotional balance, habit change and improved decision making. It also can lead to being kinder to yourself and to those around you. And, this tends to increase everyone’s sense of worth and well being.

Transforming Your Relations to Anxiety and Worry: How Mindfulness, Self Compassion and Habit Change Can Lead to More Freedom –  This 10-12 week therapy group is for men and women. This confidential group is limited to 10 people and draws upon the cognitive, emotional, somatic and behavioral aspects of contemporary psychology as well as mindfulness and self-compassion attitudes and practices.
