About My Clients

Are you feeling burned out? Do you have a demanding job that has left you feeling overwhelmed? Are you a college or graduate student drowning in work and feeling uncertain about the path you have chosen? While you may appear to “have it all together” on the outside, on the inside are you silently suffering with feelings of stress, anxiety and depression? I am here to help you learn to overcome this distress and feel more successful personally, professionally, and academically.

My Background and Approach

Therapy is an investment in yourself, and you are worth it! I view psychotherapy as an opportunity for personal growth. This is your life journey, and I will help empower you to become your best self, while working collaboratively with you to develop a treatment plan to meet your specific goals. Therapy is an investment of time and money and I want you to get the most out of our time together; therefore, I use treatments that have been scientifically proven to reduce anxiety and depression, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I also incorporate mental health education to help you have a deeper understanding of your overall emotional wellness. By the end of treatment, you will have new coping skills that you can use in the future. Education: Ph.D. in 1999 from Drexel University (previously Hahnemann University)

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Therapy is an investment in yourself, and you are worth it! Along with my education and clinical training, my lived experience of pursuing education and a career, juggling the demands of life while raising kids, and living in a culturally diverse community, have influenced my work as a therapist. I’m aware that your lived experiences may be different from mine and are affected by many qualities including your age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, culture, religion, and socioeconomic status. I’m committed to work with you to understand how your unique experiences are different from my own and how your experiences impact your life. I truly love the work I do, but I strive to have balance in my life. When I’m not helping clients, I like to stay active by hiking and biking, cooking, gardening and relaxing with friends and family at the beach. I look forward to supporting you in your journey towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life!
