Therapist Philadelphia


Do you ever feel overwhelmed, plagued with anxiety, or 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, irritability and/or engage in unhealthy coping skills, my multi-faceted approach caters to your individual needs. When people work with me they feel safe and understood.

I work collaboratively with my clients to support them in their healing process.


What kind of thoughts do you have throughout the day? How do they make you feel?

With having worked in a wide range of settings doing research and therapy, I have a comprehensive understanding about human behavior and development. Additionally, I am trained in the Complementary and Alternative Medicine modalities of meditation and yoga.

Difficult roads can lead to beautiful destinations.
