I conduct couples/marital therapy for couples of any age and at any stage of their relationship (e.g. dating, engaged, married, divorced, or anywhere in between). My therapy approach integrates strategies from the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and mindfulness.

My approach to therapy is flexible, culturally-sensitive, and aimed at helping you live a life that feels consistent with your values and priorities.

I earned my PhD in Clinical Psychology in New York City at The New School for Social Research, which is accredited by the American Psychological Association. While in graduate school, I spent 6 years as part of a research team studying how clients and therapists negotiate racial, ethnic, and cultural differences in psychotherapy. I also spent 5 years as part of a research team examining the psychological impact of breast cancer on lesbian and bisexual women and on Latina women. I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in psychodynamic psychotherapy at The Karen Horney Clinic in New York City. The training program is accredited by the American Psychoanalytic Association and the International Psychoanalytical Association.

In addition to my private practice, I teach undergraduate and graduate-level psychology classes at American University. I also provide professional development workshops for psychologists on cross-racial therapy and working with LGBTQIA+ clients for the DC Psychological Association.
