My Approach to Helping

Women struggle with similar difficulties: depression, anxiety, relationships, stress from chronic multi-tasking., unresolved family of origin issues, which may weigh us down. Our stories may be different, but our emotional experiences are strikingly similar. It has been my joy and privilege to guide women as they navigate their unique set of challenges.
As a University of Pennsylvania trained therapist, I was mentored by experts in the fields of cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and family therapy orientations. My client's needs motivated me to become an expert in Infertility, certified in Sex Therapy, and complete training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
I utilize my 29 years of practice and listen to your unique story through an experienced lens. I process quickly, and by the end of the first session, will give you a summary of what I am hearing, how your current difficulties make sense in the context of your life, and tell you what my vision is of how we might proceed together. I support you in developing your own inner wisdom so that you have a reliable ally we can harness as we uncover your story. I support you in trusting yourself.
I have tremendous compassion for the pain, frustration and anger we have in response to our past and, sometimes, our current circumstances. I also believe, wholeheartedly, in our ability to transcend everything and find joy!

More Info About My Practice

I became an expert in Infertility after going through it myself, and conducted Egg Donor and Gestational Carrier Evaluations for years. Although I no longer do evaluations, I can support and guide you through any Infertility and Adoption journey.
I became a Certified Sex Therapist to address the needs of my women, many of whom do not enjoy sex, either for physical or emotional reasons. My specialty is low sexual desire, which is common and normal for women!
I am immersed in Sue Johnson's Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, have completed training and am working towards certification.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

I believe the most important factor in choosing a therapist is to trust your intuition. An initial phone call will give you a sense of a therapist's warmth and respect of you. A first session should leave you feeling understood, relieved, and with a feeling of compassion from the therapist. If it the therapist thinks you would be better served by a different therapist or a different type of treatment, they should tell you that. Sometimes that is appropriate and the ethical thing to do. If you do not feel the therapist understood you or something doesn't "feel right", you may wish to return for one more visit or move along to someone else. I like having a one-time consultation with all potential new clients to ensure it's a great match. A good therapist match offers the best chance of a wonderful and effective therapeutic experience.
