I work with a broad range of adolescent and adult clients.
I approach treatment as a collaboration between two partners, working together to deepen our understanding of your concerns, and construct alternative ways of thinking, being, relating and feeling. As a relational psychodynamic therapist, I consider our relationship an essential mechanism of change.

I consider multicultural systems and identities in my framework for treating adolescent and adult clients within the contexts that matter most to them.
Welcome! Your courage to work towards a better you is commendable. When starting out in therapy, our focus will be on developing a therapeutic relationship based on trust. I approach sessions with empathy and compassion in a nonjudgmental space where you may ask yourself, "What do I want from this experience?" I can support you through addressing current/past hurt and be present with you as emotions come up. I will be with you as you explore the internalized narratives that influence your functioning and wellbeing. I believe therapy should be an empowering process, in which your strengths are highlighted.

As a trained and experienced child, adolescent and adult psychoanalyst, I am able to offer the deepest form of therapy when this is determined to be the treatment of choice.
I believe in the Talking Cure. Life can be fraught with disappointments, losses, stressors and challenges that feel overwhelming and discouraging. Finding words to describe thoughts, feelings, past and present experiences, in presence of a compassionate and non-judgmental other, affords profound and lasting relief from the emotional discomfort that interferes with the ability to live the life one desires. Undigested emotional pain from the past can interfere with ones ability to live a full and satisfying life in the present. Identifying those emotions whose roots are in the past, frees us to live more fully in the here and now.

Getting started can be difficult, but you got this! Whether you're a parent struggling with how best to relate to your child, a teen who is not sure how to navigate through the trials of adolescence, or an emerging adult struggling with "adulting" stress, you need not go at it alone.
My clients often share that they feel heard, seen, and celebrated as individuals throughout therapy. I apply research-backed, trauma-informed, multi-culturally competent individual therapy to instill hope, self-compassion, and empowerment in young people. Through gentle guidance, developmentally appropriate psychoeducation, and empathic listening, my clients are able to tap into their inner strengths and vulnerabilities, and learn to tolerate discomforts and-- once and for all-- conquer their fears and insecurities.

Has your teen been recently diagnosed with a health issue, and you are unsure how to help? Do you see your teen or young adult child struggling with anxiety on a daily basis? Do you wish you could help them manage their painful emotions, but you keep getting shut out? Have you been putting off getting support? During these growing years, teens and young adults find ways of dealing with painful emotions. Sometimes there has been a life event or trigger. Sometimes it is the pain of growing up in a fast-paced world. Therapy can be a safe place for you or your adolescent to explore patterns and healthy ways of coping.

When working with children and adolescents, I encourage parents to learn to work and communicate with their child or teen .
I work with individuals, couples and families. It doesn't matter how many people are sitting in the office, I view each individual within the context of the systems they live in each day. We are all part of many systems, marital, family, school, community, work. The relationships and importance each of these systems place on individuals can sometimes can lead to breakdowns in communication and mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety. Treating the dysfunction in the relationship often restores the feeling of wholeness in an individual and of course leads to stronger deeper relationships between individuals.

Are you ever curious about why you do the things you do? How you end up in the same negative relationships or why your adolescent continues to make unhealthy decisions? Through our experience, we've learned the importance of the connection that we have to others and how it impacts the healing of an individual. Often times, feelings of depression, anxiety, and difficulties within relationships with others are derived from previous experiences/ traumas that cause us to be “stuck” in unhealthy patterns of living.

People often seek therapy to resolve past experiences and life complexities and the decision to enter therapy may carry feelings of ambivalence and uncertainty. I believe that therapy is most effective when persons are offered an environment that is inviting, attentive, collaborative, affirming, and safe. Subsequently, my goal is to provide a challenging, but non-judgmental and encouraging atmosphere for persons to explore concerns and difficulties as a means of achieving desired change.

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 City Center West, Philadelphia and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
