Providing Individual, Couple's and Family Therapy in Chester County
One of my specialties is couple’s therapy. Even during the extremely hard times, if you still want to save your relationship, there is still real hope: highly distressed couples, with support, can reconnect and renew their bond.

The model I use most often use with couples is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which was created by Dr. Sue Johnson. This is a highly respected and researched model, with well over 20 years of studies that support it. Results from this research show that a more secure, loving and lasting bond is created in 75% of the distressed couples that go through the EFT process (90% of couples report improvement in their relationship). Additionally, because of the attachment needs that this model is based on are universally experienced, this perspective has been shown to be effective for all couples, regardless of race, gender or nationality.
EMDR Therapy, which was developed on the late 1980s by Francine Shapiro, has been shown, through research and in therapy sessions, to powerfully address these issues. Millions of people have benefitted world-wide. It can dramatically change the way people feel about themselves ~ while putting difficult experiences and trauma in the past, where they belong. Additionally, people can feel much more equipped to handle stress and anxiety in the future. It is hypothesized that EMDR Therapy taps into the brain’s natural healing mechanism, which is why it can make such a significant difference.
I have been frequently inspired by the results that EMDR Therapy has produced for many of my clients. The attunement between therapist and client opens up pathways to healing. In the hands of a well-trained therapist, EMDR therapy can transform lives.
