Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

We all are hard-wired for connection and nothing can be more satisfying than being in a close, committed, and happy relationship. Let me help you and your partner renew trust and intimacy and find the deep emotional connection you have been longing for.


My Approach

Individual, Couples & Sex Therapy 

I am a licensed Couple and Sex Therapist in Washington, D.C. I am passionate about helping people create loving, supportive, and affirming relationships. Building strong relational foundations with a current or future partner requires laying bricks and each person must be willing to work on resolving lingering pain from the past. With love and compassion, I help individuals and couples heal past hurts as they move towards emotional connection and enhanced sexual intimacy. 

I spent over seventeen years as a family law attorney before entering the counseling field. Watching the devastating impacts of people going through the divorce process propelled me to help relationships heal. I obtained a master's in Marriage and Family Therapy at LaSalle University, and a post master’s certificate in Sex Therapy at the Council for Relationships. Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate in Couple and Family Therapy at Drexel University, where my research addresses the unique needs of couples of color. Additionally, I teach master’s level students in the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Virginia Tech University.
