With over 25 years of experience, I treat individuals, couples, families and groups. I teach skills to cope with anxiety and depression, and address the underlying causes of the anxiety and depression. Together we build compassion and understanding so that we can bring healing to the underlying causes.

Licensed in PA and FL, I am a board certified Trainer, Educator and Practitioner (TEP) in Psychodrama and Group Psychotherapy. I am also a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist (CIRT). In addition to my online private practice, I am frequently requested to present trainings and supervision nationally and internationally. As online therapy continues to develop, I keep a strong focus on the somatic process, to be sure that feelings and beliefs are embodied, not just cognitive. I integrate Psychodynamic work, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Buddhist mindfulness and Experiential/action techniques such as art and Psychodrama for a powerful, holistic approach to healing.
All behavior makes sense when we connect the dots to the early experiences that created our beliefs. I help you examine dysfunctional behaviors and access the early experiences that created those beliefs that lead to dysfunctional behavior. Healing the old beliefs that keep us stuck in dysfunctional behaviors becomes the core of our work. New beliefs are then able to emerge and your life and relationships begin to become more satisfying. When a couple presents, we have the added benefit of healing ourselves, as well as our partner's dysfunctional beliefs and behaviors. All things are possible when patience, understanding and compassion are applied. Truly exciting work!
