I am a licensed independent clinical social worker (LICSW) who offers individual, couple, and family therapy in my Northwest Washington, DC private practice, and I am also licensed in Vermont. As a psychotherapist, I have honed my counseling skills for more than twenty years through ongoing training, and private practice work. I am honored to guide you through your recovery process as an adult child of a narcissistic parent and/or as you navigate working through separating from a person who has a personality disorder.
My training and experience in family systems, parenting, mindfulness, shame resilience, and wholehearted living effectively complement this critical healing work. I have completed the training and am certified in Dr. McBride's, WIEBGE five-step recovery model for treating adult children of narcissistic parents.
Our work together can increase your ability to practice self-compassion (research shows this is key to optimal well-being and mental health), create and maintain healthy boundaries in your relationships, and help you live a more satisfying and full life.
I believe that we are all doing the best we can and that sometimes we just need a little help. I am an experienced and caring clinician who will work with you to create and maintain a life filled with joy, self-compassion, and growth.
