My Approach to Helping
There may be times when we experience difficulty and the ways we usually cope just aren’t enough. Have you had a challenging time managing stress, anxiety or other concerns? I value clients feeling comfortable during therapy sessions so they will share and work on even the most difficult issues. As we begin our therapy sessions, we'll develop a treatment plan with concrete objectives and a timeline to track progress and outcomes. Let me help you find lasting happiness and improve the quality of your life. In-person therapy in Wilmington Delaware, West Chester Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Pennsylvania, and phone and therapy sessions.
