My Approach to Helping

As a licensed psychologist, a board certified clinical hypnotherapist and medical psychotherapist, I have been in private practice for over 30 years in center city Philadelphia and Chestnut Hill. I am Jungian, feminist, and cognitive/behavioral in orientation, and use a blend of whatever the person and situation calls for. My specialties include relationship issues, depression and anxiety/panic, self-esteem. trauma, and life transitions. I am widely published, formerly on staff at the Belmont Center and on the faculty at Hahnemann/Drexel Medical, Jefferson, and Temple Universities.

Most patients see me once a week,sometimes more with initial abuse/trauma material. Others come less often. For couples,I use an initial 4 session model. I work with conscious (thoughts and actions) and well as unconscious processes, such as dreams and images, to encourage individuation, the freedom to be on one's own path and find personal meaning in life.
