PERSONAL STATEMENT:

We all need help sometimes in navigating life. Many of the issues or problems we face are resolvable, however there are those moments when we hit roadblocks.

I have been working in the field of mental health services for over twenty years and I know that counseling can be a challenging process to undergo. I can help you work around or through the roadblocks of depression, anxiety and other challenges such as relationship difficulties or sexual problems.

I have doctoral level training in working with sexuality-related concerns, and I was trained as a sex therapist at Widener University. I also work with teens (ages 12 and up) who may have behavioral and/or academic problems.

I use a client-centered approach, where your thoughts and feelings lead the direction of therapy. I often use techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help you change any unhealthy thinking or behavior patterns.

On Friday evenings, I am leading a group for people who have difficulty managing their emotions. In the group I teach strategies from DBT to help you manage your difficult emotions with the support of others in the group. To read more about the DBT group, click here!
