Ive worked with parents and teens for over 30 years in Doylestown. My primary focus at this time, while our country is in a teen mental health crisis, is community outreach, business growth and development to meet the current demand, connecting new client callers quickly with the right therapist in our practice or outside of our practice, and continuing to build strong relationships with other healthcare professionals in our community so we can share those resources with our clients..
We are here for the Bucks County community and doing everything we can to adjust and adapt our practice to meet the demand and needs at this challenging tine in history.

I work with adolescents and young adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, body image issues, ADD/ADHD , executive functioning skills, self harm, risky behaviors, and family conflict.

I provide therapeutic services to adolescents and college students who struggle with anxiety, depression, OCD, trauma, self-esteem issues, school avoidance and body image issues. For both parents and teens, adolescence and young adulthood can be a tumultuous time. Teens are individuating and trying to be come into their best selves. This time comes with ups and downs and often conflicts in the parent child relationship. In our practice we work with teens and parents together and separately to stay connected. So often teens shut down and isolate themselves. We can help parents navigate this time.
I create a partnership with my clients and work as a team to identify and reach their therapeutic goals. I use DBT techniques and incorporate mindfulness and skill building that is unique to the client. I help to guide teens and young adults through the therapeutic process that will help to create a life worth living. Tapping into themselves and understanding their behavior is key to navigating their relationships with friend and family during this time of their lives.
