Thank you for visiting my website. I am a therapist in private practice in Berwyn, PA. I specialize in evidenced based therapies to treat mood disorders, anxiety disorders, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and OC related disorders (skin picking, nail biting, hair pulling.) I am passionate about helping people change unhelpful thought and behavioral patterns to give them greater control over their life and how they interact with their world.
I utilize Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT,) Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT,) Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP,) Habit Reversal Training (HRT,) Prolonged Exposure (PE) for PTSD to help my patients reduce symptoms, increase functioning and live more meaningful lives. Additionally, I offer SPACE training, a treatment for parents to utilize to reduce accommodation for anxious childhood emotions.

As of August 2021, I am thrilled to welcome Kristen Mackel, LCSW to my practice. Kristen will be doing individual therapy with teens and adults and has a DBT for young adult group.
