About

I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PhD) trained at Penn State and the University of Pennsylvania. Though I work with a number of problems, I specialize in personality and sleep disorders. I conduct assessments in these areas as well. I also work with more unusual and rare psychological conditions and problems that have may be difficult to change. A large portion of my practice is also devoted to providing clinical supervision and therapy to other therapists and doctoral students. Through my PSYPACT membership I have the ability to work with people in 33 states.
In addition to my practice, I teach, write, and conduct research. I’ve trained therapists at several different universities and supervised diagnosticians for NIMH-funded grants. I have more than 50 professional publications including three books available through Oxford University Press. I am a frequent professional lecturer in the US and abroad.
When choosing a therapist, it's important to find one who matches your needs, feels comfortable to talk to, and stays up to date with research. They should also respect your freedom to live your life as you see fit. Good therapy is always focused on the patient's needs and never the wishes, personal beliefs, or expectations of the therapist.
