You look in the mirror and see the "bad" traits. That you're not thin enough, not smart enough, not "good" enough. You realize that these traits were projected there by someone else--a past partner, or maybe even a parent. You want to recover from perhaps a lifetime of emotional pain and narcissistic abuse but you don't know where to begin...I specialize in treating individuals who are adult children of narcissists, and those who may be struggling with disordered eating and body image issues. I can support you in developing your inner strengths so that when you look in the mirror it will be your true self staring back at you.

When working with individuals, I have been successful in helping people struggling with the anxiety that comes with forming their sense of identity through career and intimate relationships. I am also skilled in helping clients explore their sexual orientation. I work with people in recovery from substance dependence and sexual compulsivity. I enjoy helping couples heal from infidelity and improve their efforts to communicate, resolve conflict and feel understood. I work with couples who are considering or coping with the transition to a family of three. Recently my focus has turned to couples who are exploring an open relationship.

In life, it's easy to stay on autopilot. While there are times when being on autopilot works for us, there are other times when it doesn't. Through years of studying and practicing psychotherapy, I have become highly skilled at helping my patients to stop living on autopilot, and, instead, to start making CHOICES. Psychotherapy is a process of getting incrementally more honest with yourself. As therapy unfolds and you begin to know yourself more deeply, you can start to examine whether you are living the life you want, and if not, how you want it to change.

I think of the therapeutic relationship as a workshop where clients can plan, tinker, experiment, test, problem solve, and refine parts of themselves, their relationships, and their lives with my unwavering support. It's a place and time where we can collaborate on what might need to change, what tools are necessary for the task, and on the ways it might begin to unfold. I create and hold a safe place for clients to ponder, practice, and consider change-- especially when they struggle to maintain that space for themselves. As a trauma informed practitioner, I am able to ground and contain stressful affect to help clients feel held.

Are you ever curious about why you do the things you do? How you end up in the same negative relationships or why your adolescent continues to make unhealthy decisions? Through my experience, I’ve learned the importance of the connection that we have to others and how it impacts the healing of an individual. Often times, feelings of depression, anxiety, and difficulties within relationships with others are derived from previous experiences/ traumas that caused us to be “stuck” in unhealthy patterns of living.

You try to control what life circumstances you have been through with food, substances or other behaviors, but you have been left with only more anxiety and depression. Your past still follows you around in your relationships and you can't seem to shake the feeling that it won't ever get better.

My speciality is working with individuals experiencing issues with stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, over-eating, grief and trauma. My approach is to first identify coping strategies to deal with the current stress and emotional strain by focusing on strengths and existing coping mechanisms. Together, we sort out the underlying problems and identify more effective coping strategies to deal with every day stressors and overwhelming emotional reactions to current and past trauma. I think the relationship between therapist and client is really important for growth and change; and do my best to provide a warm, natural, humorous and relaxed atmosphere.

People try everything they can to solve their difficulties on their own before calling a therapist. It's precisely our own personal luggage that disables us from fulfilling our own potential and making the changes we so desire. Finding a therapist who is right for you can help you gain a better understanding of yourself and can be very useful to getting you to where you want to be. What is most important is that you feel free to talk about whatever is currently distressing you the most. For that, you need to ensure that you are a good fit with your therapist.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in City Center West, Philadelphia can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
