Profile

I received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Georgetown University and obtained my master’s degree in social work (MSW) from Catholic University. I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW-C), and am licensed to practice in Maryland, Washington DC, and Virginia.

I am currently an adult psychotherapist and have been with the Kaiser Permanente behavioral health department since 1998.

My theoretical framework consists of clinical principles consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), positive psychology, mindfulness, and brief therapy. What is very important to me is to provide a nourishing and safe environment where individuals can freely express themselves and feel supported, validated, and heard.

My areas of special interest include crisis intervention, anxiety, depression, men’s issues, and a strong passion to help individuals establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

What My Patients Say

An excellent and supportive therapist. - PS

I was very nervous at first being that this would be my first time taking therapy, but I can assure you that he will make you feel very comfortable and supported. He wants and allows you to be yourself, which made me feel open and welcome to express myself without opinion. He also gives you his undivided attention and a great sense of comfort. He advises without judgment or being bias, which was [a] bonus. Very professional and kindhearted. I left my appointment with a great sense of relief and encouragement. I would highly recommend him. - AT
