Welcome. ​

My web site is the starting point from which you can learn about me and my practice of psychotherapy. I utilize a goal-oriented, relational, creative approach. My practice is guided by intensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), mindfulness, psychodynamics and a lifetime in the creative arts. The above menu provides the information you will need to make an informed decision.

I am licensed in Pennsylvania, California, and New Jersey, and provide online telemedicine sessions. In Philadelphia, my private practice is affiliated with the Philadelphia DBT Associates in Rittenhouse Square. I also provide office hours and DBT skills classes in Linwood, New Jersey.

To set up an initial consultation for in-person or telemedicine sessions, please contact me at (415) 685-3894 or via the form listed under the Contact tab. I look forward to hearing from you.

To be great, be whole: don't exaggerate

                       Or leave out any part of you.

Be complete in each thing. Put all you are

                  Into the least of your acts.​

-Fernando Pessoa, 1933

May what I do flow from me like a river,

no forcing and no holding back,

the way it is with children.

-Rainer Maria Rilke
