Originally trained as a family therapist at Philadelphia Child Guidance Center, I have worked at all levels of mental health with children, adolescents, adults, and families and have been trained in many therapeutic interventions. Through experience I became fascinated by the overlap between cognitive and psychological sciences, particularly what has been discovered in the explosion of brain research in the last decade. My work has taken me to many clinical and educational settings, both public and private. Five years ago I added Executive Functions Coaching and mindfulness to my eclectic repertoire of intervention methods. I love to collaborate with clients of any age to define their needs and life goals, to identify and overcome obstacles, to create greater understanding of themselves and their environment, and to celebrate their successes. Sessions may include insight oriented exploration, goal-setting, learning and practicing new skills, mindfulness, and brain-based games. I have an abiding faith in the human spirit and our ability to change, grow, and find joy. Relieving suffering is always a primary objective, but my ultimate goal for my clients is to increase functioning and to help them find moments when they feel truly connected to themselves, their significant others, and their world––however they define that.
