As a post-master’s student at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Child Guidance Clinic, I concentrated on structural and strategic family therapy. I received specialized family therapy training at the Kantor Family Institute (Family Solutions Institute) and the Philadelphia Child Guidance Clinic. Additionally, I am a certified step-family counselor trained by the Stepfamily Foundation.
In my practice, I have worked with all sorts of families: nuclear, extended, single-parent, and step-families. The issues I can assist you with include everything from divorce to the death of a child to helping children with disorders.
New Parent Consultation
As a family therapist and the mother of two young children, I have taken a special interest in offering training and support to new mothers and parents. As a consultant, I work with new and expecting parents to help them transition into their new role as parents.
I provide information on the services available for new and expecting parents, working and single mothers, and single fathers. I use my firsthand experience to help new parents determine what is fact and fiction and answer questions about your child's development.
Pre-Teen & Teen Counseling
In addition to family therapy, I offer specialized therapy for adolescents and teenagers. As an adolescent and teen counselor, I offer parents advice on setting limits, and I also help teenagers transition to college and launch into young adulthood.
I work closely with my individual therapy clients to explore and understand their unique experiences. I have worked with individuals of all age groups including adolescents, young adults, middle age, and geriatric adults on issues that range from divorce to grief, to eating disorders, and more.
As a marriage and family therapist, I work with couples to overcome a variety of issues that may affect one's relationship: divorce, separation, infidelity, financial stress, and communication problems. I also offer pre-marital counseling to those couples who are dating or engaged and post-divorce recovery for those couples dealing with visitation rights, re-marriage, and the possibility of having additional children.
