Specialists in the Treatment of Eating Disorders, Anxiety
and Depression. Counseling for Adults, Teens and Families.
I specialize in the treatment of Eating Disorders, Depression, Anxiety and Life Transitions. I work with Adults, Adolescents, and Families. I utilize effective, solutions-oriented therapy, working interactively to achieve long-term results in the shortest time possible. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most scientifically proven method of treating eating disorders, depression, and anxiety. As a CBT Certified Specialist, I am able to incorporate various interventions and therapeutic modalities along with CBT, and adapt them specifically for the client’s treatment needs.
Bio
I hold a Masters Degrees in both Psychology (Temple University) and in Social Work (Bryn Mawr College). I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) specialist. I received my clinical training at the Renfrew Center for Eating Disorders and at the University of Pennsylvania.
In addition, I have over 12 years of providing Career Counseling and Business Consulting throughout the United States. I am currently the Director of Focus Psychotherapy Associates, a private practice located in the Philadelphia Suburbs.
