Each life stage presents its own unique challenges; perhaps you are feeling “stuck," facing concerns related to a specific problem, or just looking to move towards a greater sense of emotional well-being. With the right support and the right tools to work towards positive change, one can more easily navigate life's challenges. I am passionate about providing clients with effective strategies to work through challenging situations and achieve their behavioral goals.

Additionally, much of my work with clients includes developing coping strategies to deal with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, and separation and divorce.
Are you struggling with day to day activities? I am here to help. Drawing from my experiences with families, individuals, couples and adolescents while working at a Family and Youth Center, an alternative school for teenagers with mental health issues; I have counseled individuals and families from diverse walks of life. Each client is a unique individual needing their own structured support, coping skills and therapy. I will listen and collaborate a treatment plan most effective for you, depending on the context of your life, as we hurdle one obstacle at a time. It is my passion to share this journey with you.
Amidst life’s hardships, therapy is a space just for you. I provide a warm, caring, and nonjudgmental container for you to process your thoughts and emotions. My focus is to create a safe and trusting relationship so that you may express your authentic self and be seen. I firmly believe that the seed of change lies in self-acceptance and will work with you to facilitate deep self-exploration.
I believe strongly in helping people move forward in their lives by recognizing their strengths and helping them solve their problems. I am an action oriented psychologist with both business and healthcare experience. My form of psychology is not to merely listen but identify problems and developing a plan of action. Often problems are based on transitions which are difficult for everyone. By identifying the issues, developing steps and solutions, individuals will move forward in their lives. Transitions are a difficult time for many individuals which may occur with new jobs, changes in life e.g. becoming an empty nester and/or facing retirement
I help adults solve and manage a variety of issues. If you have a problem or concern, I can help you evaluate and decide what, if anything, you want to do about it. I help people who have goals they want to achieve. I also help people who feel they are stuck or dissatisfied with their lives and who want help defining and achieving a more satisfying life.
Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, EdM, LPC, CHHC
I know that change is hard and requires courage, which is why I provide a safe, non-judgmental, and open space to discuss dreams, emotions and goals. I believe that people are resilient and that the work of a therapist is to assist clients in achievement of emotional independence. I help people gain insight into thoughts and feelings, within a supportive relationship, so that they can feel empowered to heal. Through expression, awareness, and accountability individuals connect with themselves, manifest growth and enact change in their lives.

Therapy is a powerful tool of discovery that helps you see yourself, your relationships, and the world through new eyes. It is exercise for the mind that helps us become emotionally flexible and prepared to weather the storms that life inevitably brings. Usually things work, until they don’t. And people come to therapy when things have stopped working. Through careful and gentle inquiry, we can usually unravel what isn’t working, and help build a new way forward. Often the fit between therapist and patient is the big factor in therapy effectiveness. So, how you feel when you talk to the prospective therapist is an important guide.
As a licensed psychologist and certified family therapist for over 36 years in the greater Philadelphia area, I have worked with numerous patients coping with a variety of conflicts, challenges, and circumstances unique to their lives. I am committed to the well being of, and truly care for all my patients and work diligently to help them find the answers they seek. In my work the most important and essential ingredient is a strong therapeutic relationship with my patients.
It is so important to work with a therapist with whom you can trust and feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings. I believe that my relaxed interpersonal style will allow you and/or your child to establish that sense of trust. I use both cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic interventions and tailor the therapy to meet the needs of the individual client. I practice with warmth, respect, and dedication. I am experienced in treating children, adolescents, and adults. My specialized interests include anxiety, depression, stress reduction, separation anxiety, grief, self-esteem issues, and life transitions.
Together, we will navigate through the frustrating, critical or painful patterns in your relationships. Especially the relationship you have with your self. People seek me out to learn how to nurture, connect, empathize and accept. Build the conflict resolution and validation skills that are powerful tools used to improve relationship dynamics. It simply does not need to be this hard, new ways to interact can elicit change. When emotional challenges create too great a struggle, therapy may help. We will discover positive and productive ways to successfully explore life and gain the wisdom to cope more effectively.
My approach involves bringing change about from the inside out. We will work towards understanding how the problems that brought you here developed, what they mean, and the purpose that they serve. This approach goes beyond simply treating symptoms and strives to help you make changes that are deeply-rooted and long-lasting. It has been proven that the therapeutic relationship actually creates healthier connections in your brain.
As a psychologist with over 25 years of clinical experience, I offer compassion, acceptance and support. If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, or stress, together we will work toward a healthy and positive outcome. We will form a collaborative plan and a working alliance. I utilize multiple therapeutic approaches in order to maintain the flexibility for which you, as an individual, will best benefit.
