Individual Therapy and Wellness Coaching

My Approach

I strive to help my clients do three things: explore how their problems developed (to prevent repetition), identify the changes they would like to make, and then determine how to put those changes into action. As I work collaboratively with my clients using this "insight and action" approach, they frequently report that they feel happier, more peaceful, and more empowered. 

Individual Therapy and Wellness Coaching

I offer individual therapy and wellness coaching for individuals aged 18 and older.  My fee is $140 per session. While I am currently not an in-network provider for health insurance companies, I will gladly assist you in seeking out-of-network benefits.

Group Meditation and Relaxation

Considering giving meditation a try?  Or are you an experienced meditator looking for a group practice? Please join me for a meditation and relaxation practice in the Wellness Center studio!  Feel free to contact me regarding the times and dates of these group practices.  The cost per session is $10. 

Weight Loss Surgery Psychiatric Evaluations

Need a psychiatric evaluation for your upcoming weight loss surgery?  Give me a call!  The cost varies depending on your surgeon's specific evaluation requirements.  Please feel free to contact me for more information. 

Community and Corporate Education

Need a speaker for an upcoming event for your company, church, club, or support group?  Let me help you out!  I truly enjoy going into the community and providing education on mental health-related topics.  My community outreach programs include:

  • Meditation as Medicine:  Using Meditation and Conscious Relaxation to Live Your Healthiest Life
  • Mental Health Question and Answer Session
  • Overcome Emotional Eating Once and for All!
  • The Emotional Side of Weight Loss Surgery:  Set Yourself up for Healthy Coping and Success!

I will also gladly create a community education program tailored to your organization's needs.  Cost is negotiable. 

My Education

I was fortunate to receive exceptional psychotherapy training at Georgetown University, George Washington University, George Mason University, and the University of Delaware; and earned my Ph.D. in clinical psychology with honors in 2003.  I have been practicing for nearly twenty years and have practiced in multiple settings including college and university counseling centers, community mental health centers, and private practices.

Community Outreach

One of my passions is educating the community about eating disorders, the emotional aspects of weight loss surgery, anxiety, depression, and the benefits of meditation and conscious relaxation.  This is a clip from my interview on WGTW Philadelphia's "Joy In Our Town," in which I discuss the emotional aspects of weight loss surgery, and effective treatments for binge eating disorder and bulimia nervosa.
