Clients who are seeking to be more confident, powerful, and effective are likely to work well with me. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families from a positive psychology perspective--helping them to use their strengths to improve their moods and their lives. I can help people improve their current relationships and their dating success. My interpersonal style is non-judgmental, encouraging, and solution-oriented.
My background is in positive psychology and substance abuse. Before I started my private practice in Rittenhouse Square, I was the director of the Charles O'Brien Center for Addiction Treatment at the University of Pennsylvania. I am certified in the evidence-based CRAFT approach to treating substance abuse.
