Therapist Philadelphia

 

Do you feel overwhelmed, plagued with anxiety, worried about what your future might hold? Do you have a hard time understanding why things feel difficult or complicated? Whether you experience sadness, grief, anxiety or irritability, and/or engage in unhealthy coping skills, I use the correct therapeutic tools to assist you in becoming your very own therapist.

In my therapy, I am supportive, compassionate and I will empower you.

When people work with me, they feel understood and hopeful.

I have a multi-faceted approach that caters to your individual needs.

What thoughts do you have throughout the day and how do they make you feel?

I have worked in a wide range of settings doing research and therapy. I have a comprehensive understanding about human behavior and development. I also have training in holistic health. Don't wait another day wondering if things will get better. I look forward to hearing from you.
