More About Me

If you are looking for a therapist, then I assume that you are struggling in one or more areas of your life. I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy, a form of therapy that distinguishes itself through a focus on relationships. When we look at the difficult feelings such as depression or anxiety, often there are conflicts in past or present relationships that are there. I use a combination of techniques that are tailored to the individual, including dynamic, cognitive and behavioral; but I start by working with you to create a warm, non-judgmental environment in which your personal concerns can be discussed in safety.



I am presently on staff in the Geriatric Psychiatry Department at the University of Pennsylvania, and consult to the Department of Psychiatry at Chestnut Hill Hospital. I have been invited to lecture on psychological topics to physicians and residents in primary care and training settings, including the Chestnut Hill Family Practice Residency Program, and the Jefferson University Hospital Pain Clinic.



I am involved at the board level in professional organizations, including as current President of the Philadelphia Society of Psychoanalytic Psychology (PSPP). I have also completed advanced training in psychotherapy at the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia.
