I work with adults dealing with anxiety, depression, grief/loss and life transitions.
We all need to be heard. We all need someone who can sit with us and truly hear our story. I believe therapy is a collaborative process in which we work together to address the challenges and changes you may be facing. For 24 years, I have been working with people just like you--people who need someone to listen, support and engage. People who need a dedicated time and safe place to step out of the chaos of life and sort through their stress and struggles. People who are seeking self-awareness and supportive feedback.

In practice since 2007, I work with those who experience symptoms of anxiety, depression, grief, have encountered trauma, engage in substance use, disordered eating, self-harming behaviors and relational conflict.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, it is my goal in partnering with clients in navigating through life's twists and turns, being a guide towards a middle path of acceptance and change. My focus is to empower clients to transform coping strategies into skills of daily living, identify and release themselves from self-destructive patterns that led them to treatment, doing so in an environment that encourages growth and development.

Has depression or anxiety created barriers in your life? As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist I work collaboratively with clients to provide empirically based treatment to improve coping, increase self-awareness, and alleviate symptoms so life can feel more manageable and enjoyable. I believe therapy is not a one size fits all service and for this reason I work closely with individuals to develop their own individualized treatment plans tailored to their specific goals for treatment. I have experience working with individuals across the life span including adolescents, teens, and adults.

From a Person-Centered perspective, I use a variety of approaches with individuals (age 18+) who are experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, life transitions, and more.
Experiencing times when you feel overwhelmed, hurt, or unsure can leave you feeling stuck, hopeless, and alone. When couples feel distant and/or are fighting, communication and connection can seem impossible. Having someone to listen, understand, and support you, someone who has also experienced anxiety, depression, and relationship issues, can be the beginning of your path toward well-being. My goal as your therapist is to get to know you (or you and your partner), provide empathy and compassion in a safe space, and build skills to help you move forward into the life you want.

My specialty is depression/anxiety, but because people who suffer from depression & anxiety usually have an underlying cause, I help people take control of their lives to better meet the challenges, transitions, etc, emphasizing their strengths, not pathology.
You know how often we lose our way in life, like ships blown off course, no longer heading exactly where we want to go now? If you are looking for more out of life, more from yourself, I can help. What I do in my counseling is to help people chart a new course for themselves based on who they are now - a course that will take them where they truly want to go, more effortlessly, more quickly.

Sometimes our child has needs that can effect the entire family system. I focus on providing the child direct care, and provide parents the support to keep going, to keep working toward the potential you know your child has. Specifically, if your child is having ongoing school problems, is showing oppositional behavior, or has difficulty maintaining friendships. Additionally, if your child has been diagnosed, or your questioning whether your child has Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD, AD/HD) and needs "coaching" to cope with this problem, or he/she is showing signs of anxiety or depression, or abusing alcohol or drugs.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Exton. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
