About

At This Time, My Practice is Full: As a psychotherapist with 38 years of clinical practice, I continue to love what I do. I have a doctorate in Counseling Psychology and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychoanalysis. I work with people who are hurting. My patients wish to go beyond symptom relief and work toward symptom resolution by addressing the core underlying issues. I specialized in treating anxiety/panic attacks, unresolved childhood pain, conflictual relationship issues, heartache, grief, sadness, and trauma. I support individuals finding long-term solutions versus a band-aid approach.
My practice is limited to video therapy sessions via a HiPPA-approved therapy platform. I am also a Psychoanalytic Candidate at the Pennsylvania School of Psychoanalysis. The therapy I offer is from a view of Modern Psychoanalysis. This approach supports patients in resolving issues and pain and enables patients to live in the 'here-and-now.'
I strongly believe psychotherapy is about supporting people to be their authentic selves and supporting them toward a place of inner peace, self-awareness and owning their truth. We human beings are complex, and change does not occur overnight. In therapy, I provide a safe place for you to express your thoughts, feelings, memories, and experiences.
