My Approach to Helping

I understand how difficult it is to come into therapy and which is why it is so important for me to build a safe and trusting relationship with my clients. I take a down-to-earth and genuine therapeutic approach to create a welcoming and healing environment. I am committed to helping my clients become the best version of themselves by tailoring my therapeutic approach to fit the unique needs of each client, couple or family. I have always been passionate about helping others and being a psychotherapist allows me to love what I do every day.

I have extensive training and experience in helping clients work through relational stresses. I specialize in treatment of anxiety and depression and am also passionate about working with couples facing relationship challenges, communication difficulties and helping couples to regain sexual and emotional intimacy.

It is a humbling experience to be a psychotherapist and witness my clients transform into the person they never believed they could be. I am grateful to each of my clients for feeling comfortable sharing their stories with me and work to give each client the safe environment that they deserve.

More Info About My Practice

At The West Chester Therapy Group, we are committed to helping our clients develop a greater quality of life by assisting them to foster a better relationship with themselves and those in their lives. Through individual, family, and relationship therapy, our group of systemically trained therapists are dedicated to providing the best possible therapeutic care to help our clients heal and grow. I do not take insurance, however my fees are reasonably priced.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love building a relationship with my clients that is healing for them. I love to see my clients transform before my eyes into the person they always wanted to be but never believed that they could be. I love to help guide and witness my client's journey into understanding themselves and their relationships more fully and helping them to lead a more fulfilled life. It is a truly humbling experience to be a psychotherapist and to experience the strength in my clients journey as they pull themselves up from their lowest points in their lives. It is inspiring to me both personally and professionally.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I completely understand! It is not easy to open up to a complete stranger. Even though we start out as strangers, I work to gain my clients trust and confidence in order to build a healing therapeutic relationship with them. I work to make each of my clients feel as comfortable as possible in therapy, and let my clients take the lead. I make sure to follow the pace that each client wishes to set for therapy so that they feel as comfortable as possible with me as their clinician.
