Thank you for visiting my web site. I extend a very warm welcome to those who would like to find out more about me and are considering starting therapy.
I received my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University. I am an LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist) and a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and the Pennsylvania Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. I am also a member of ICEEFT – The International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy and the Philadelphia Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy. I have completed my EFT Externship and Core Skills Training.
I am also a member of EMDRIA (International Association of EMDR). I have also completed my Basic training in EMDR Therapy. I am trained to provide couples, individual, group and family therapy.
I am drawn to EFT for couples therapy and EMDR Therapy for individuals for a couple important reasons. First, they are effective and potentially transforming approaches that are supported by extensive research and also yield positive outcomes in clinical settings for many thousands of people. Secondly, they both rely heavily on the therapeutic alliance – the relationship that develops between therapists and their clients. Developing a positive, connected and therapeutic relationship with my clients is one of my greatest strengths, so practicing EFT and EMDR Therapy have come very naturally to me.
I have a private practice in West Chester, PA, in the heart of Chester County.
Give me a call and we can talk about the issues that concern you, discover whether I seem like a good fit for you, and see if the investment in therapy is something you want to pursue.
