One of our deepest wishes and most 
profound fears
is to be seen
exactly as we are

Notice regarding COVID-19:


As we move through the ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, our collective safety is a top priority. I am continuously monitoring the recommendations issued by federal and local health authorities including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the DC Department of Health.


Most appointments are currently being conducted with an encrypted tele-mental health platform. In-office appointments will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
