I want to help you claim your best life! Helping people change has been my life's work for over 20 years. I utilize the best practices that help my clients live the life they want....not to avoid the struggle but to embrace it and triumph. While I have studied various forms of therapy..CBT, DBT, Family systems, etc., what I find most fascinating is the ongoing triumph of the human spirit over adversity. I would love to help you utilize the resources you have to successfully meet your life's challenges. "How can I be Helpful?"

I have a strong comprehension of the challenges that disrupt mainstream middle class individuals, as well as the impact that such challenges place on their family systems.
As a clinician who specializes in relationship issues and self esteem, I am a focused, engaged and passionate helper. I work with my clients to explore self-defeating thoughts that contribute to their life challenges, with the intent of achieving a more balanced (and "fair") interpretation of themselves and their surroundings. As a classically trained cognitive behavioral therapist, I am a firm believer in the notion that past traumas play-out in our adult lives.

I have learned that connection with others and with oneself is a powerful tool to heal the devastating blows life can deliver. Symptomatic patterns often result in people becoming lost or stuck in repetitive patterns that contribute to us not living our full-lives. I embrace a strength-based, relational framework that supports people in interpersonal as well as individual challenges. I incorporate ESFT/family systems work as well as humanistic approaches to support people in creating the best lives for themselves.

My sessions offer help with family systems, behavioral difficulties across settings, and trauma work in a mindful, client centered approach.
My mindfulness based, play therapy training has taught me how to help children that have gone through or may be going through a trauma. A child's language is play. My play room offers a variety of mediums (sandtray, arts, puppets, role play through costumes, legos and many, many toys) that will help a child safely express what they need to in order to heal through their play. My sessions also will partially include the parents, where coping skills and behavioral strategies can be discussed before the play time ensues. I also run a virtual LPC group supervision for those seeking credentialing.

(Not accepting new clients.) People come to me because they are struggling and feel stuck. I specialize in working with adults and children/families who are challenged by anxiety, ADHD, or "Asperger's" but have experience with many different issues. My approach involves providing information about how the brain works, how to use it as your ally instead of an enemy, and how to find strength in the very things that challenge you. (ex: There are so many wonderful things about having ADHD!) I do this in the context of interpersonal relationships where we talk about things like identity and communication/conflict resolution skills.

Now, I assist clients to grow and heal from abuse, neglect, traumas and move through rough patches in life. I recognize the importance of this work, but believe curiosity and laughter can be part of the therapeutic process as well as tears, grief and anger.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in West Chester view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
