My Treatment Approach:

I am dedicated to the psychological growth and well-being of my patients, and I maintain a deep respect for the individual, for his/her needs and abilities. I integrate effective, proven therapy methods into an individual treatment plan for each patient.

Understanding and working with the patient’s strengths, as well as his/her vulnerabilities, enables me to provide comprehensive treatment. My empathic style enables me to provide a safe environment for self-exploration and understanding. My extensive experience and broad knowledge base helps me to develop, along with the patient, a more thorough perspective on my patients’ issues and on the steps that need to be taken for their resolution.


I have been in private practice for 29 years, working with adults, adolescents, and children with a wide variety of issues. I have also worked in college counseling centers, in inpatient settings, and in community mental health centers.

Presentations, Publications, and Workshops

I have lectured and published on the topics of parenting, narcissism, empathy, the therapeutic relationship, Self-Psychology, bereavement, and trauma treatment. Specific titles include:





I have served as a board member of the Philadelphia Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology, the Delaware Valley Group Psychotherapy Society, the Greater Philadelphia Society for Clinical Hypnosis, and the American Mental Health Alliance. I have been a member if the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation and the American Psychological Association.
