I offer therapy to adolescents and adults experiencing anxiety, depression and trauma, as well as individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their family members.
Therapy can be a transformative experience for people facing a multitude of life’s challenges. What I find to be the most important factor for change is understanding the relationship we have with ourselves. When we take the time to learn who we are and where we come from, we see our relationships in a new light. Self-acceptance allows us to navigate the world more freely. My individualized approach integrates person-centered therapy, attachment theory, developmental psychology and mindfulness. I prioritize building a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients to uncover their personal process and what works best for them.

Parenting is hard. Parenting a special needs child is harder. Kids don't come with owner's manuals. If your child happens to have special needs, the situation is often confusing. You want nothing more than to help your child. It's what we do when our children are struggling. Sometimes you just don't know what to do to help. It can leave feeling helpless. You are not alone. I know from personal and professional experience what it takes to make major changes. No matter the nature of his struggle, be it autism , adhd, or some other challenge, you can help your child.

We are BCBA's with a practice limited to ABA Therapy for children with Autism and other Developmental Disorders. We received our BCBA's in 2004 (Donna) and 2005 (myself), expanding on our knowledge/experience in School Psychology and Special Education Supervision. There is a great need for experienced clinicians to serve clients at home and in school/community with Skinner's Analysis of Verbal Behavior, solid contingency management and well-supervised practice of professional behavior therapists. Parents want to see improvement in daily functioning and growth, as this has a direct connection to their future independence.

I specialize in learning disabilities, attention disorders, developmental disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, emotional/behavioral disorders, and giftedness.
Children, adolescents, young adults, and their families may require psychoeducational evaluation for many different reasons. Is your child struggling in school and you're wondering why? Does your child require testing for private school admission? Does your adolescent or young adult require an evaluation for accommodations on SAT, ACT, GRE, or other standardized testing? My goal with every client is to develop a full and complex profile of strengths and weaknesses through psychoeducational evaluation so that their families and schools may provide them with the support and enrichment that they need to meet their potential.

Is it finally time to invest in yourself? There is so much pressure to be strong and handle everything on your own that we forget that we all need support. Asking for help in processing through these challenges shows the strength and courage needed to make real and meaningful changes. While I will always make sure to listen, be empathetic and supportive, I will also be direct and will challenge you to identify the patterns in your life that are contributing to your current distress. I will work collaboratively to help you identify and prioritize the values that are important to you and live more intentionally with these in mind.

What type of West Chester 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 West Chester?
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.
