Pronouns: He, Him, His
I am a licensed psychologist and clinical supervisor for psychologists-in-training. I graduated from The George Washington University PsyD Program and completed my predoctoral internship at the State University of New York—College at Old Westbury, where I worked with incredible students and studied postmodern psychotherapies.
More recently, I worked in private practice in Wheaton, Maryland while completing an intensive one-year postdoctoral program at The George Washington University Center Clinic, which is a community mental health clinic that offers sliding scale services for individuals in downtown Washington, DC and neighboring areas.
As a therapist, my aim is to help you think about and get beyond the specific challenges in your life using methods that have proven efficacy. My therapeutic approach is primarily influenced by psychodynamic, existential, and humanistic theories. I work collaboratively in setting goals, solving problems, and uncovering the factors that drive your feelings, thoughts, or behaviors.
In sessions, I value explorations of your personal history, experiences with primary caregivers, and relational patterns, in addition to concerns you might have about mortality, meaning in life, and personal responsibility. At the same time, however, I firmly believe that flexibility in approach and conversation—tailored to your unique identities, personality, and needs—is essential for a successful treatment.
I am warm, validating, and guided by a deep-seated respect and appreciation for all individuals. I consider you the expert on your experiences and the predicaments in which you find yourself. I invite you to reach out if you feel that we would be a good fit.
