I am a clinical psychologist, licensed in DC and Maryland. My PhD is from Catholic University in Washington, DC, and I have had-post-doctoral training in family therapy. I am a Diplomate in Couple and Family Psychology of the American Board of Professional Psychology, a Fellow of the American and Maryland Psychological Associations and listed on the National Register of Health Service Psychologists. In the early 1990’s I was President of the DC Psychological Association and, active for many years in professional activities.
What makes your practice special when compared with others in the area?
My specialties include individual therapy with adults, with an emphasis on the addictions and on persons with ADHD; couples and family therapy; psychological assessments of many kinds; and forensic (court-related) services. I also provide services for older adults, their families, their legal representatives, and their caretakers. I collaborate with many other professionals to ensure the best services for my clients, including mental health specialists, physicians, and attorneys. I’m committed to seeing that you get the help you need, even if it’s not from me directly. Why come to me for these services? ● I’ve had years of experience, so I’m not a beginner at this. After 25 years directing a successful clinic that helped over 30,000 people, I simplified my life and opened a solo private practice, offering the skills I’ve honed over the years. I take an active role. I don’t just sit back and nod. I have a sense of humor about this work. If there isn’t a laugh or two somewhere along the line, therapy becomes awfully heavy. My preference is to work intensively on the immediate problems my clients bring to me. Let’s try to help you now. I have developed longer-term relationships with many clients, however, where they view me as “the family therapist”, with the kind of on-going contact they might have with their family physician or primary care doctor. Psychotherapy, in many ways, is a word-of-mouth profession. Many of my clients refer friends, colleagues, and family members to me, so I must be doing something that people find helpful. I'm an amateur jazz drummer, a basketball fanatic, and a happy grandparent.
