I have been a clinical psychologist for over 40 years and have assisted people with a wide range of human concerns: depression, anxiety, fear, trauma, relationships, and the ordinary challenges in life's journey. My experience as a child therapist has been useful in supporting parents and grandparents. Whether people seek to know themselves better or are troubled by life's circumstances, our work together is to create the changes sought, and, in the process, make the necessary choices to attain self-sufficiency through emotional understanding and independence; substituting a healthy curiosity for shame, self-judgment and guilt.

Life is often stressful. Modern life keeps moving, even when we might really need a moment to reflect and connect. In my practice, I hope to offer children, adolescents, young adults, and families time to pause and process their experiences. In the pause, we might find new paths and connections to forge. I support clients experiencing anxiety disorders (GAD, OCD, Social Anxiety, etc.), mood disorders (depression, adjustment disorders, etc.), neurodiversity, family conflict, stress management concerns, and aid parents in need of support.

I also treat families and children in crisis, and connecting with angry or difficult to reach children and teens is a specialty.
Every story is unique. My job in session is to listen well and frame a space that invites you to speak freely. I work exclusively through telehealth, and my areas of expertise are in helping people who are grappling with overwhelming emotions, dissociative defenses, or the aftermath of painful experiences to get to a place that's more livable. Integrating the tools of old school psychotherapy with affective neurobiology, relational theories of change, and a horizontal treatment approach, I help you get to the root of the problem as we work in the moment towards equilibrium and a sense of connectedness to yourself and others.

In addition to individual therapy with adults, I also work with children, adolescents and parents.
Being a human being isn't easy. Unfortunately, it seems we are destined at times in our lives to experience pain, fear, confusion, and difficulty. The good news is that it is often through befriending and understanding that which is most painful, frightening, or challenging that we grow and find more enduring freedom and peace. As a therapist, I see my role as offering the nurturing environment within which individuals can better understand themselves and their lives, overcome their challenges, and discover their true potential.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Philadelphia, PA provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Philadelphia build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
