Welcome to My Practice
I am a counseling psychologist with extensive experience working with children and teens, as well as adults, couples, and families. I offer expert evaluation and solution-focused counseling for:
Anger and defiant behavior
All anxiety issues and OCD
All forms of ADHD
Sadness and depression
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Survivors of trauma
High Impact Strategies
Unlike some other counseling approaches, I provide transparent solutions for creating positive behaviors and healthy interactions. Significant improvements are typically noticed within 4 to 6 counseling sessions.
I continuously update my skills in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Exposure & Response Prevention Therapy, Mindfulness, Substance Use Disorder Interventions, Trauma-oriented therapies, Play Therapy, Couples Therapy, and Positive Psychology.
I have been a keynote speaker for the Pennsylvania Psychology Association. I frequently present at conferences for school counselors and mental health professionals. In addition, I conduct seminars to parent organizations. Recent presentations include Foundations Behavioral Health, Philadelphia Society of Clinical Psychologists, West Chester School District, and Unionville Chadds Ford School District.
The topics I present include all forms of anxiety, depression, ADHD, anger and explosive behaviors, defiance, parenting strategies, and healthy communication strategies in intimate relationships.
Published Author of Noted Self-Help Books
Being an author on important child, teen, family, and couples issues has deepened my knowledge and solution-based skills as a clinician. As an expert in the field of child/teen counseling, parenting, and couples therapy, I have published five books along with a therapeutic card deck widely used by other mental health professionals and the public.

I am a member in good standing of the Pennsylvania Psychological Association since 1992.
