I have a strong comprehension of the challenges that disrupt mainstream middle class individuals, as well as the impact that such challenges place on their family systems .
As a clinician who specializes in relationship issues and self esteem, I am a focused, engaged and passionate helper. I work with my clients to explore self-defeating thoughts that contribute to their life challenges, with the intent of achieving a more balanced (and "fair") interpretation of themselves and their surroundings. As a classically trained cognitive behavioral therapist, I am a firm believer in the notion that past traumas play-out in our adult lives.

My sessions offer help with family systems , behavioral difficulties across settings, and trauma work in a mindful, client centered approach.
My mindfulness based, play therapy training has taught me how to help children that have gone through or may be going through a trauma. A child's language is play. My play room offers a variety of mediums (sandtray, arts, puppets, role play through costumes, legos and many, many toys) that will help a child safely express what they need to in order to heal through their play. My sessions also will partially include the parents, where coping skills and behavioral strategies can be discussed before the play time ensues. I also run a virtual LPC group supervision for those seeking credentialing.

My professional training includes cognitive-behavioral and family systems therapy.
.Are life's pressures wearing you down? Have you lost energy for people or activities you once enjoyed? Are you feeling stuck and unsure of how to change your current life situation? Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, a difficult childhood, relationship issues, low self-esteem, or something else, change is possible. Therapy sessions begin with relationship building as you share the concerns that led you to therapy. I want to hear your story and understand the life circumstances that brought you to your current situation. We will then work together to create a plan for therapy that feels right for you.

(Not accepting new clients.) People come to me because they are struggling and feel stuck. I specialize in working with adults and children/families who are challenged by anxiety, ADHD, or "Asperger's" but have experience with many different issues. My approach involves providing information about how the brain works, how to use it as your ally instead of an enemy, and how to find strength in the very things that challenge you. (ex: There are so many wonderful things about having ADHD!) I do this in the context of interpersonal relationships where we talk about things like identity and communication/conflict resolution skills.

In today's hectic society, families often struggle to manage responsibilities and maintain satisfying relationships. I work with couples, parents and adolescents on respectful interaction skills using effective communication, conflict resolution, and boundary-setting tools. Many of my clients are teens experiencing anxiety and depression and feeling overwhelmed by school pressures, demanding schedules and relationship issues. I coach young adults to identify and eliminate obstacles blocking their transition into adulthood. We explore values, self-esteem issues, personality traits, interests, and personal and career goals.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in West Chester view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
