The Following Groups Are Now Forming in My Herndon Office.  Please contact me if you are interested.

  •  A process group for gifted and twice-exceptional teens
  •  A men’s therapy group
  •  A group for teens and young adults working on adulting

My individual and couples work focuses around working with those who are:

  • are gifted and/or exceptionally talented;
  • are exceptionally sensitive to emotions and experiences;
  • feel like nobody else really understands them;
  • struggle with ADHD or executive functioning issues;
  • have mood and anxiety disorders;
  • are twice-exceptional;
  • are facing major life decisions and transitions;
  • love a talented but sometimes difficult spouse or child;
  • are dealing with the continuing aftermath of trauma; and, most of all,
  • want to be happier and more productive.
