Life can be complicated. We all need someone in the trenches with us who can truly understand and assist. I have over 20 years of experience helping adults, young to mature, navigate through a variety of problems - relationship difficulties, anxiety and stress, depression, and spiritual struggles to name a few. I believe in collaborative therapy, where we put our heads together to assess the issues and set goals. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Interpersonal Therapy can help resolve the symptoms that affect daily life. When desired, Insight Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy can get to the root of the problem.

My orientation is psychodynamic/ interpersonal and my approach a mixture of insight-oriented, ego-supportive and cognitive behavioral strategies. Insight-oriented therapy focuses on unconscious factors, faulty belief systems and unmet needs which influence a person's perceptions and emotional response patterns. Goals of treatment are to: increase self-awareness, self-acceptance and emotional intelligence; work though past wounds and current fears; identify what is important in one's life and relationships: and, develop new skill-sets and thinking patterns which lead to better choices and outcomes. Life is about challenges and successes, not impossibilities.

My orientation is eclectic, using various disciplines, and skills from psychodynamic, behavioral, systems, and humanistic approaches.
I provide therapy for individuals, couples, families, adults and children. I have worked with many different clients providing the support needed for change. My experience at various social service agencies, at a child and family clinic; and in a college clinic has given me the opportunity to work with many adults, children, adolescents and families. I find my training in marriage and family therapy is particularly helpful for my clients in that it helps individuals better understand their relationships with themselves and others in their life. I regularly look at the systemic process in relationships, and at attachment issues.

Do you feel like you need to walk on eggshells with this person? Many people who have an emotionally immature loved one in their life also struggle with anxiety, depression, and the inability to form close intimate relationships. I work with couples and individuals who want to develop an awareness of what led them to feel anxious, depressed, distant, etc., in their relationships and help them get unstuck.

As a practicing psychologist of more than twenty five years, I enjoy the challenges unique to children and adolescents. Today's youth experience unprecedented academic and social pressure often resulting in feelings of frustration and sadness, anger and isolation. Often these emotions are buried rather than shared which can lead to harmful thoughts and behaviors. By cultivating a collaborative relationship, we work together to identify these thoughts, feelings and behaviors and the reasons behind them. Recognizing and understanding these feelings allows the patient to develop a sense of mastery over complex struggles leading to enhanced relationships while boosting self-esteem and academic performance.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Paoli, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
