As part of my practice, I offer comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations for people with neurological conditions including Alzheimer's Disease, MS, and other forms of dementia .
Many people ask themselves, "Is it all in my head? Do I need help?" Parents often ask, "Is there something wrong with my child, or am I just worrying too much?" I specialize in the evaluation and treatment, as well as comprehensive psychological testing, of children, adolescents, and adults experiencing behavioral, emotional and developmental challenges. As a psychologist in private practice, I work with my clients, be they adults or children and their parents, to identify areas of concern, develop specific goals and plans to address them, and to enhance the strengths and resources families already possess to improve relationships, reduce stress, and increase success.

How does the "talking cure" help? It might have even been called the "listening cure." Having a helpful and supportive ear is something many people find they need at various transition points in their lives. Having a safe place to talk, in a warm and supportive environment, is crucial. The tool of our work is the relationship and, as research has shown, is the most important predictor of success in psychotherapy. I enjoy working with my patients as they seek to find their way to a richer and more fulfilling life.

My patients all want a happier and more fulfilling life. Some know where to start while others do not. In turn, I believe most people are doing their best, with the tools they have, for themselves and those they care about. The will is there - we just have to figure out the way. This may mean adapting old tools, acquiring new ones, or both. We do that with a mixture of Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) and Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) therapy. Along the way, we identify each person's values that give their life meaning and purpose. These inform big decisions but also moment-to-moment actions.

We all have our own unique stories. Within them lie challenges and obstacles to work with. I liken it to each of us being in the middle of a tornado; in the middle, we can't see clearly everything that's zipping chaotically around us; we just know we're in the thick of it. Therapy helps us be able to step back from the tornado, so that we can see what's actually going on around us. If you are here, then you desire some type of shift in the way life has been operating with you. You might have a clear understanding of the blockage, or you may not yet. Wherever you are in your journey, we will meet where you are and move forward.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Philadelphia?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
