I am a licensed professional counselor who has years of experience treating children, teens, and young adults (age 10-25). I am passionate about working with adolescent females, in particular those with self-esteem challenges. Through counseling, clients can begin to understand themselves and learn effective strategies to improve their well-being.

I have a particular interest in working with adolescent females and the process of helping them see and feel and advocate for their value in the world.
The teenage years are the most vulnerable, exciting, and growing years of a young person’s life. Self discovery can often yield low self esteem, independence can easily shift to rebellion, and a slow maturation process often creates impulsive decision making. And when a parent’s warnings and worries don’t seem to have an impact on the teenager ’s course, or when it feels too heavy to carry alone, it’s helpful to have another guiding force to help. Through counseling, an adolescent can feel understood, begin to understand themselves, and learn to understand and accept their role in the family and society.

In my professional life, I have concentrated in a number of specialty areas- clients with combined medical and psychological difficulties, addictions, child and adolescent disorders, sexual disorders and sexual abuse, and adoption related issues.
I have been in practice thirty years. I see psychotherapy as a process of increasing self awareness, developing a more realistic and tolerant self esteem, and identifying and working through losses, disappointments and relational conflicts. This process enables reduction in pain, greater self acceptance, and comfort in relationships and family. This process occurs in a collaborative effort between you the client, and myself. The safe environment of the office allows for the full expression and understanding of what you experience, think, and feel. Our work together enables symptom relief, greater personal understanding, growth, responsibility and contentment.

My books include Stop Negotiating with Your Teen : Strategies for Parenting Your Angry, Manipulative, Moody or Depressed Adolescent , & Adolescent Therapy That Works.
Teenagers are my specialty, especially those wanting nothing to do with counseling! (Download my article "Why Teens Hate Therapy" on website.) I help teens (children, too) who are anxious, angry, defiant, withdrawn, moody, self-destructive, inattentive, depressed, doing poorly in school, or having trouble with peers. I work as effectively with boys as with girls, and can help you decide whether the problems you're noticing are a part of "typical" teen behavior or a sign of something more serious. I also offer one session consultations for parents who have questions about their kids or new parenting approaches.

I believe that a keen sense of self and awareness are key elements for any child, adolescent or adult to lead their truest, most fulfilled life.
It is my belief that each and every person is doing the best they can with the resources they have available to them. Oftentimes an unbiased listening ear, some empathy, encouragement, and perhaps a different point of view is all you need as a parent or child to help you feel empowered to take the necessary steps to move forward in a healthy and joyful way. I began my career working with young kids (and their families) in Early Intervention and from there realized the importance of empowering the family system as a whole to face the challenges in our daily lives.

Experience with issues related to grief &loss, sexual trauma & abuse, along with anxiety, depression, communication within marriage and family relationships, and teen & young adulthood issues.
There are seasons in life when direction from a professional can make a difference; in family relationships, peer relationships and marriage relationships. I believe in empowering people to become the best they can be by understanding from where they came. This awareness of your family of origin brings knowledge, and empowers you to work through the past and move forward to a more fulfilled life. Getting to know you and your concerns is the beginning of a therapeutic relationship which will allow me to assist in fostering your personal goals.

We all move from our first breath and this power can be harnessed to create meaningful experiences towards healing. If you are looking for a therapy experience that goes beyond talking and helps you connect to your whole self, Dance/movement therapy could be for you!! If you have tried traditional "talk" therapy and it has not produced the changes you are wanting, a Dance/Movement therapy session will help you make shifts in session (literally!) that you can apply in your everyday life. If you or your child or teen does not like to "talk" about your feelings, DMT is a solution! At my core, I see movement as our path to wellness. Movement connects us to our physiology and psychology to really affect change- we cannot just think our way to change, we need to move it! I use the body, which is never in the past or future, as a tool to help clients become aware of your own physical and emotional states in the present. I strive to connect my clients to your bodies and from there we practice techniques to empower you to embrace living in your bodies and connecting to your whole self.

Are you looking for a therapist for your child or adolescent because they seem down, anxious, or having trouble managing relationships or stress? Being a kid right now is so challenging, and having additional support from a therapist can be invaluable! Maybe you are looking for help for yourself. Maybe you are a parent struggling in that role. Or, maybe you are trying to heal your own wounds from experiences you had early on in life. Maybe you'd like to heal so you can feel better, more present, and less anxious in your here and now.

I will work with you to resolve areas where you may feel misunderstood, confused, or stuck. Studies have shown that we are able to change throughout our lifespan. This means we do not have to be stuck living the same way forever. My approach is psychodynamic psychotherapy where two people work together to understand what is contributing to one’s suffering and to find a path forward, toward recovery. I enjoy working with adults and adolescents looking for a change and a way to experience happiness in life.

I believe that the ability to calm down and solve problems are two of the most crucial skills for success in life! Over the past thirty plus years I have had the honor of having many people from many different backgrounds share their stories of life's victories, challenges, and pain with me. Most individuals have both obvious and hidden strengths that can be called up to help them to move past obstacles. I feel skilled about being able to create the emotional safety for people to truly discover and tap in to their own resources. As clients then learn and become empowered with strong, coping skills, exciting postive changes happen!

I think there are two general paths to your definition of the ideal client. First, you can focus on the types of therapy you do. For example, you could say, “I help individuals with anxiety and depression.” That definition makes it clear what you do--and don’t do. You don’t do group, family, couples, or relationship therapy. Your practice doesn’t directly deal with eating disorders or sexuality issues, except perhaps as they connect with depression and anxiety. You have a process for working through anxiety and depression.It also may suggest you’re open to a less-regular schedule of therapy, as people’s anxiety or depression chang

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Exton and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
