All of us are faced with challenges at some point in our lives.  Life is unpredictable and we cannot always control situations and events that affect us. I help people deal with life and health challenges, expand their internal resources and make positive adjustments to improve their wellbeing and regain balance in their lives. I work with individuals and couples, provide consultation to health professionals, and do educational workshops and presentations for organizations.

I am a licensed psychologist with a clinical focus on adjustment to medical illness and disability, couples therapy, depression and health psychology. Additional areas of interest include: women's health, caregiving, stress and anger management, grief counseling, life transitions and mindfulness.

I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and have been in practice since 1990. I am a clinical psychologist at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. I have previously worked as a senior staff therapist at Council for Relationships and as a consultant and a staff psychologist at several medical centers in the area.

I am a member of the American Psychological Association and of the Philadelphia Society of Clinical Psychologists. I am trained in PAIRS and EMDR. I am fluent in Spanish.
