Background in geriatrics, hospice and end of life care, psychotherapy
I have over 15 years experience in the field. My approach to psychotherapy is both compassionate and empathetic. I believe we all have the ability to grow and change if we have the desire, support, and tools. Through the therapeutic relationship and process, people can improve the quality of their lives in all aspects by gaining a better understanding of themselves. My goal is to help my clients gain courage and self awareness to live life fully. I approach my clients with compassion and a desire to explore their needs collaboratively.
I have extensive experience in couples/relationship issues, illness, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, trauma, women’s issues, postpartum depression, and helping people manage the stressors related to caring for aging parents. I approach my clients from an integrative perspective utilizing elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
I hold a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Temple University in Philadelphia. I have completed a three year post graduate training at the Gestalt Therapy Institute of Philadelphia and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Pennsylvania. I have completed postgraduate training in CBT at Bryn Mawr College and hold a certificate in CBT. I am also certified as a Level I Gottman therapist.
