The therapeutic process doesn’t have to be complicated. With the concierge model—it doesn’t even have to be clinically based. In the first appointment you’ll discuss why you’re seeking the assistance of a licensed mental health professional (now licensed in DC and in FL); you’ll be encouraged to identify strengths and solutions. Treatment options will be covered and you can decide what fits. From cognitive challenges to behavioral methods, using empty chairs, paper, sand or music, from emotive, narrative, or online journaling and file sharing options (and other more creative approaches to help you thrive), the choice is yours. We’ll begin by tackling the problem — and end with a solution — together. My expertise areas are PTSD, Stress and Anxiety, Relationship Counseling and Depression. As an eclectic clinical social worker, serving clients in private practice since 2005, and as a former professor, an author, a professional development trainer, and a consultant to other providers—an array of options to change, heal and thrive exists. Register and schedule here or check availability now (many clients can be seen within 24 hours)! With your goals in mind counseling will be focused. Treatment plans are developed in the first meeting, discussed in our second one, and your time here will be as brief as possible. The goal is to help you do more of what you want: to live life in the absence of therapy. Read more here or click a photo for a topic of interest!

Professional counseling services are provided to DC clients in face to face sessions (conveniently located at the One Metro Center building where metro lines intersect—no walking, no parking). My Florida clients are served digitally online with Clinical hypnosis and rapid resolution services available in Florida (limited to FL to comply with licensing standards).

What do you love most about your job?

I love helping people get better, to see things differently, and to find a stronger and happier sense of themselves. What's most exciting, is when a client hears about their strengths, many times ones they've been minimizing, or loved ones have been overlooking - and then to watch the client take those strengths and thrive. There's nothing quite like being able to build a plan customized to a client's specific request, during their first session, and later to have them agree to it (and sometimes add ideas that they think will enhance it). Watching marriages heal, watching families reconnect, watching individuals look/feel/act more whole and confident - it is an absolute delight! It's cool too, that I'm able to help more clients than many providers in my profession. Why? Because I'm licensed in two jurisdictions and can see people online and in the office and onsite! Finally, as a clinical supervisor (helping others in my business get their supervision hours in) and as a former professor to social work students (training the up and coming providers to be) it is neat to incorporate more and more neuro-scientific paradigms that both support and refute various framework styles. I guess being current in the latest social technology is something that training others requires!

What inspired you to start your own business?

I think the best way to answer this question is to tell you a story (it may be 100% true and it may be a bit made up, just to get the point across to the reaer)....I remember watching a child in a private school I attended get bullied, week after week. The child didn't speak up or retaliate; he withdrew, got more and more quiet and often walked and sat alone. Once I overheard a teacher approach the child during lunch (I wasn't eavesdropping but because of where I was seated I could hear everything). At one point the kid dropped his head, slumped his shoulders and wept, shaking as he did. It was as if the weeks/months/years of bullying all showed up right there. The teacher suggested the guy see a school counselor; the kid agreed. From there, the classmate got called out of classes about once every week and the rumor was that he was seeing a counselor. Within a few weeks, this guy started telling the bullies to stop talking to him, to stop teasing him, to stop being mean and once he looked the all-star of the clique based school leader in the face and told him ----- off! In a matter of a few years, the quiet, withdrawn, bullied, kid went from sitting alone to being on the high school auditorium stage running for the student body president. And you know what? He Won!

Another story to make the point about "what inspired me to start my business" was when a family member of mine was having some serious, serious medical problems. They were the kind that take a life waaayyy too early. My loved one was asked to attend a group of similarly diagnosed peers, along with family members - which is what we did (I was one of the family members). As I sat in the group and watched this counselor lead people, facilitate, and evoke from them everything that was real (liked or not) at 17 years old I remember saying to myself "oh my God, I want his job!"

Why should our clients choose you?

A 24 hour online self scheduling platform is probably one of the main reasons. Why would I say that? Many clients in mental health have told me how they felt pressured by therapists to schedule another session at the end of sessions. Many then would blame the therapist for some faulty outcomes. What I've learned (and I've asked my clients to let me know when and if they want to be seen long before I even used a digital server) is that when the client controls the schedule they are often more motivated to change, grow, and get better. Plus, you know when to go see the MD with a 'green snotty nose' - so I'm certain you know when to go see the therapist when things in the mind are a bit off (you know you best, usually). Also, all of my clients, whether being seen in the office, online, or onsite (depending on what state they are from and when I am available) have access to secure emailing, chatting sessions, video sessions, phone sessions - and office sessions! My best work is in treating couples using a pragmatic experiential modified approach where many are better within just a few sessions; also the successes I've had in treating PTSD has been a total thrill! And, anxiety and depression are complicated to treat as a talk therapist - but seeing these folks heal and change has been something!

Hypnotherapy FAQs

This will vary according to the level of experience and training that the hypnotherapist holds.

Your professional hypnotherapist will be able to advise you on the full range of therapies available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted hypnotherapist today.

Firstly, you'll have a conversation with your therapist to discuss what you hope to achieve and agree on what methods your therapist will use. Afterwards, the hypnotherapist may lead you into a deeply relaxed state using agreed methods to help you towards your goals. For example, suggesting that you don't want to carry out a certain habit gradually bring you out of the trance.

You are fully in control when under hypnosis and don't have to take on the therapist's suggestions if you don't want to. If necessary, you can bring yourself out of the hypnotic state. Most people expect to be put to sleep or to forget what happened afterwards but the opposite is true. You're fully aware the whole time of what is happening.

This is dependent on both your hypnotherapist and your circumstances. One-off services such as smoking cessation or gastric band hypnotherapy can last around two hours, while a general hypnotherapy session will usually take about an hour.

The duration of therapy will really be dependent on your circumstances and issues. Some people may require a longer-term approach with regular weekly sessions. Your hypnotherapist will let you know how many sessions they feel you might need when you start therapy and will be flexible when it comes to decreasing or extending the number of sessions according to your progress and needs.

There are currently no guidelines in place stipulating the training and qualifications a hypnotherapist must have in order to practice. Industry guidelines recommend that individuals should have completed at least an appropriate diploma or have completed a course that involved a minimum of 450 learning hours, of which 120 hours must have been face-to-face.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their hypnotherapy services.

Hypnotherapy has repeatedly and consistently helped patients with a whole host of issues. It can help with anxiety, depression, anxiety, PTSD, obesity, addictions, fear of flying, public speaking, stopping smoking, insomnia, weight loss amongst others. When combined with methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), valuable healing work can begin as quickly as one or two sessions.

You might be surprised to hear that hypnotherapy can be delivered remotely over the phone, through an online video chat platform, or with pre-recorded sessions sent by email.
