​​
Services provided:

I provide consultation; supervision;

individual, family, and group therapy; and DOT-SAP assessments
 in my West Chester, PA office. 
 

I am a trauma-informed therapist and work

 with adolescents, young adults, and adults wrestling with mental health and
substance abuse issues. 

I especially enjoy working with 
recovering professionals, folks with dual-diagnoses, 
and families of adolescents and young adults. 

I also provide drug and alcohol evaluations for school or legal purposes.

For more than 26 years, I've been helping individuals and families
learn about substance abuse and mental health diagnoses, end

self-destructive behavior patterns, reduce PTSD symptoms,
and develop more effective communication
and coping skills. 

I save clients time and money by providing
a thorough assessment of needs and developing 
a clear plan to achieve goals in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Confidentiality:

Confidentiality is an essential element of therapy.
 I am morally, ethically, and legally obligated to maintain strict
confidentiality of client information. Without written consent, I cannot
release any information about clients, including their presense in therapy.
However, all therapists are legally mandated to make sure clients and others are safe.
There are a few very specific safety exceptions to confidentiality laws.
Please see my practice guidelines and HIPAA form for
more information about confidentiality in therapy.
