My Approach to Helping
I believe that people can change areas of their lives that are not working for them. Therapy can play a pivotal role in providing support, develop strategies and offer the opportunity for better self-understanding. The best way to achieve results in therapy is to understand how these patterns of behavior originated and to learn what keeps you stuck and how to let go of these old beliefs and move forward in achieving your goals.
I graduated from Temple University with a master's degree in counseling therapy. I hold a post-master's certificate from the Malvern, Pennsylvania-based Pennsylvania Gestalt Center. I have practiced for more than 20 years, specializing in changing the behavior of young adults, teens, and children.
I spent the early years of my career at the Children's Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I served as a play therapist. I specialize in helping child and adult clients cope with irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn's disease.
I studied under Dr. Sandra Klos, a leading behavioral therapy specialist. We worked together for over a decade. I am currently an assistant teacher for a three-year court at the Pennsylvania Gestalt Center.
I offer individual therapy to cope with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, life cycle transitions, divorce, and trauma to clients of all ages. I am a kind and loving therapist who respects the goals and needs of my clients. Making the choice to engage in therapy is a brave and meaningful step towards the possibility of change. I am committed to establishing a good rapport with my clients and provide a safe atmosphere to explore painful issues.
