SPECIALTIES

I work with adolescents and young adults who are experiencing anxiety, mood problems, difficulty in relationships, or struggling with the stresses of school and career.  Successfully managing the transitions of adolescence and young adulthood are crucial to happiness, productivity, and access to creativity.  Similarly, I work with adults to enhance self awareness and skills of relationship and self care, bringing creativity and depth of understanding to the issues of mid-life.  

 

I work with couples to manage conflict and stress around parenting, finances, and the demands of work, and see individuals and families affected by chronic medical conditions or attending to family members with special needs. Receiving support at these crucial junctures can protect mental and physical health, and preserve important relationships.

 

I have a long standing interest in the human-companion animal bond.  I co-lead a pet loss support group and am on the board of the Chester County Gluten Intolerance Group.  I have expertise in medical issues as they affect mood, relationships, and the ability to function in daily life.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

I have an informal, conversational style and provide a safe, confidential place in which people can share their personal circumstances.  We start with what brings you in at this time and discuss personal and family history as they relate to your concerns and goals.  My office is professional and private, but warm and comfortable.

 

I offer an initial appointment as soon as possible, and offer consultations as well as ongoing psychotherapy.  Sessions are 60 minutes long, and frequency of sessions and payment are discussed in the first appointment.

 

POLICIES

Fee: My fee is $140.00 and I offer a sliding fee scale in some circumstances.  I don't participate in most insurance networks, but will provide a statement that you can submit to your health insurer or HSA.  Payment is due at the time of service.

 

Cancellation Policy:  A minimum of 24 hours notice is appreciated should you need to cancell an appointment. 

It is important to me to provide my clients with a warm yet professional office setting.
