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 professional training includes cognitive-behavioral and family systems therapy.

Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, a difficult childhood, relationship issues, low self-esteem, or something else, change is possible. Therapy sessions begin with relationship building as you share the concerns that led you to therapy. I want to hear your story and understand the life circumstances that brought you to your current situation. We will then work together to create a plan for therapy that feels right for you.

(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.

Asking for help demonstrates bravery and is an action step toward a new experience in life. I have been helping individuals recover from addiction for over twenty years. 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. Transformation and change are often possible and I am honored to witness this daily.

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.
