I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist in the state of Pennsylvania (License # PS017415) and hold a Clinical Associate Faculty appointment in The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. I provide psychotherapy and testing services to adolescents and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, artistic expression, questions of identity and existential/spiritual concerns. In addition, I work with couples to help clarify relationship goals and improve communication.
My initial interest in psychotherapy was sparked by studies in history, music, visual art, and the major world religions. These seemingly disparate interests helped me understand individual narratives in the context of our larger collective history. We all have a sense of who we are and how the world works based on years of lived experience. By deepening the understanding of our personal narrative we prepare the way for a sense of meaning and purpose that can impact our lives and those around us in profound ways.
I continue my own studies in music and the visual arts. Visit www.oldorchardproductions.com for more information.
