I am a licensed clinical psychologist located near Rittenhouse Square. While I have experience with a wide range of issues, I am especially skilled in working with depression, anxiety, loneliness, loss, shame, and sexual and gender identity concerns. My approach to treatment is relational and psychodynamic. This means that I strive to maintain a strong focus on the relationship ⁠—both the therapeutic and real, human relationship ⁠—between the client and me. To this end, I believe that the therapeutic relationship is itself a powerful agent for change and can serve as a foundation for addressing numerous real-world problems.

Each of us comes to psychotherapy for different reasons, and while no two psychotherapy journeys will be alike, we all require the same essential conditions of empathy, acceptance, and supportive encouragement to examine our lives with an attitude of curiosity and a creative vision for change. As a licensed psychologist with a wide-range of training and clinical experience, I am committed to establishing a therapeutic relationship that is dedicated toward understanding the circumstances that have brought you to this point in your life and in drawing upon your strengths and resources for taking your life in a new direction.

I believe in empowering divorcing couples to make informed decisions that work for them and their families.
Despite your best intentions and efforts, do you feel stuck in your personal life, intimate relationships, family relationships or workplace? You may be faced with challenges that are deeply rooted in your early life experiences, your primary attachments, in how you view the world, or due to misunderstanding between you and significant others. Challenges can arise during stressful life transitions, such as divorce or death of loved ones. But they can also arise from positive life experiences, such as marriage or the birth of a child. Left untreated, these challenges can grow into chronic problems that can corrode your sense of self and your relationships.

I offer a safe and supportive space to explore your struggles from the foundation of a trusted relationship .
Life can bring unhappiness, distress, and uncertainty. It can also bring opportunities for satisfaction, connection with others, and meaning. Realizing that something in your life needs to change and seeking support to do so takes courage. Seeking the support of a well-trained, compassionate, and supportive therapist can be helpful—whether you need support during a stressful period, to address broader issues in forming and improving relationships, in adjusting to a loss or life transition—or simply because you know that you’re unhappy and are uncertain how to change.

Do you often worry you’re “not good enough,” perhaps as a mother, partner , student/professional, friend, or family member? Do you struggle to feel confident and secure in your relationships or your work? Do your physical health and emotional needs take a back seat to the demands of your job and family (chosen or otherwise)? When an opportunity arises to take care of yourself or communicate with a loved one, do you find yourself avoiding or shutting down? We all want to feel accepted, loved, appreciated, and heard. I'd love to help you unpack whatever has kept you from feeling or experiencing these things in any areas of your life.

In my practice, I see individuals and couples ; I specialize in the treatment of mood, relationship , and personality difficulties through short- and long-term dynamic psychotherapy.
People seek therapy for wide-ranging and deeply personal reasons. The common theme among these is the desire to improve some aspect of your emotional health. Together, we will work to explore and alleviate those areas of your psychological life which cause distress or limit your happiness. The human condition is complex and rich with meaning at all levels; therefore, my goal is to understand each client as a "whole person," not limiting our work to merely symptom-reduction, but also enhancing self-knowledge and overall wellness to achieve a more balanced and satisfying state of being.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
