I help people identify and understand their personal strengths and use those skills to help themselves feel ready to make changes and take action. In a supportive space, I get to know you and how your brain works. I think we need to accept ourselves, forgive ourselves for past mistakes, and embrace our current stressors as challenges to navigate and move through. I believe that we need to understand our thought processes to answer the following questions: Why do we think the way we do? Why do we hyper-focus on some things but then have trouble focusing on other tasks? Why can't we quiet our minds and tune out from our worries?

Do you desire to move past issues related to food and body, fear and disconnection? To heal the depression and anxiety that is getting in your way of the life you want? Are you ready to begin understanding your mind body connection and how it can be used to deepen your connection with yourself and others? I specialize in traditional psychotherapy as well as yoga therapy to facilitate healing from eating disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship distress, and more. When appropriate, I utilize yogic philosophy and technique, such as breathing practices, meditation and asana (physical forms), to provide a body centered, whole-self experience of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing. Yoga can be integrated into regular psychotherapy or as an adjunct treatment to recovery.

Parenting is one of life's greatest adventures. Amid the numerous books, experts, and voices out there it can be difficult to determine what to do when faced with a challenge. Parents of spirited, high-energy, rigid, anxious, or disruptive children or of those who carry diagnoses may feel alone with their challenges. As your psychologist, I offer empathy, support and a collaborative approach for fostering goodness-of-fit parenting in your family. That is, I help you to discover the most effective ways for you to parent your unique child.

My clients are dreaming of a better world but feel stuck in a world that is causing them great pain. They are passionate about change, both for themself and for the world around them, but might not know where or how to start. If this sounds like you, I want to offer you support in figuring out what change can even look like and how to reach towards it. I can't offer you "the answers" but I can offer you my belief in your ability to change yourself and your world, if you choose it. I view this change process as starting with self, connecting with community, and finally engaging in systems change.

The goal of therapy is to develop a connected relationship with an empathic professional that helps alleviate any issues that the client wants to work on. A client should expect a respectful and creative environment in which they can safely explore their needs and wants. Some people believe that they are not worthy of help or are ashamed of what seeking help means about themselves. Therapy is there for anyone who wants to use it, from people who just need a boost through a troubled time to people seeking long term work examining patterns and habits that interfere with their hope and happiness.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist. I've also practiced meditation in the Zen tradition for about 20 years, so I specialize in counseling couples and individuals who want to incorporate a more mindful way of being in life. We do this by exploring the present moment: looking at what is happening in the body, the mind, and the spirit--right here, right now. I help clients unlock old, painful patterns, and together we look at what is truly informing the emotional reactions and thought patterns governing our lives, so that a more awake and more joyful life can be lived.

You'll feel welcome with me, and we'll work to translate that into the rest of your life.

What type of Philadelphia mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Philadelphia?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
