In my practice I provide individual and group counseling and psychotherapy and facilitate workshops on stress reduction, mindfulness, and career planning. I work with teenagers, adults, and older adults in the areas of depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, eating disorders, insomnia, and adjustment to life transitions.
My therapeutic approach includes support as well as cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and mindfulness approaches. My style is warm, genuine, and collaborative. I believe that a strong working relationship between therapist and client is essential. My clients often say that they appreciate my helping them identify and stay focused on working toward treatment goals.
One specialty that sets me apart from many other therapists is my career counseling work. Career counseling helps people achieve a satisfying and rewarding career that fits their interests and talents. Individual career counseling is collaborative, tailored to a client’s unique needs and goals, and may include testing, such as an interest assessment.
In addition, having experience on college campuses, I am skilled in working with the personal, educational, and career concerns of college students. I help students manage life transitions including adjustment to college or graduate school, needing to change majors, anticipating graduation and entering the world of work. I also help recent graduates and young adults who are stuck or underachieving.
I really enjoy giving presentations and workshops. I have presented locally, nationally, and internationally on topics including mindfulness, stress reduction, counselor training, career development, multicultural diversity, and workplace change. Recently I co-facilitated “Mindfulness for Our Clients and Ourselves: Concepts, Benefits and Practices,” a continuing education workshop sponsored by The Delaware Psychological Association.
