Announcement icon I am offering tele-therapy through video and/or phone to all who want to be seen during this time. I also can meet outside in lawn chairs.
Over the past 20+ years, I have been working with adults, adolescents, and children in individual, couples, and family therapy. I listen closely to my clients to understand their current problems and related symptoms, thoughts, and feelings. I work collaboratively with clients to investigate the history of their struggles and to create a plan for change. Using cognitive, behavioral, and emotion-focused approaches, I aim to facilitate healing, growth, and change. Having spent much of my career as a scientist-practitioner, my clinical work is informed by empirical findings. My treatment approach is reasoned, compassionate, and practical.
I work with individuals struggling with emotional distress (depression, anxiety, anger), health-related problems (eating disorders, weight loss, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity, health anxiety, somatization, and psychosomatic conditions) and relationship difficulties. I am especially sensitive to the unique stresses of being female in today's world.
I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Dartmouth College and Rutgers University, respectively. In addition to practicing as a licensed psychologist, I served on the faculty at Princeton University and continue to serve at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. I have been teaching and writing about doing psychotherapy for over 20 years.
