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.

Life is full of challenges that test our resilience and leave us questioning or doubting ourselves. Therapy is a place to get the support you need to move forward and discover new meaning, joy, and honesty in your relationships. While I tend to focus on the here and now of life’s obstacles, during therapy, we will likely explore past patterns and incorporate mindfulness to help you feel more in control in the future.

(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.

I work with individuals at all stages of life struggling with anxiety, OCD, and related challenges. Anxiety comes in many “flavors” and looks different on everyone. As a former teacher, I am especially passionate about working with children and adolescents. Parents often report feeling heartbroken and frustrated as they try to figure out ways to help their child. I work with parents to strengthen their relationship with their child while also going beyond temporary fixes to address core issues. I also have a special interest in working with young adults struggling with stress and anxiety.

I enjoy working with adolescents and young adults into their 30's who are struggling with any level of anxiety or depression. As our world attempts to simplify through technology and continues to change, it brings with it a changing culture and way of life that is not always helpful for our mental health. This generation tends to put the world on their shoulders, but forget to care for themselves. The pressure to "be successful" and fit society's expectations is a lot to carry. Rather than just managing this anxiety, we can figure out what goals and mindset are truly your own.

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.
