Becoming a Marriage & Family Therapist was a second career for me.
My experience in the business world, as a stay at home mom, and, now, a working mom, provides me a wealth of perspective to draw from and understand real family situations.
I’ve always been drawn into conversation with people—even strangers—about their personal lives. When I learned about MFTs I realized this is what I had been doing my whole life. My family systems training brought all the pieces together for me. MFTs systemic approach reflects my core beliefs about life and relationships.
I believe that perfect blend of instinctual empathy and the structured, systemic process, is the perfect balance for this career.
My client base is founded almost entirely on word-of-mouth. The fact that my clients, friends and doctors are the source of virtually all my referrals is something in which I take enormous pride!
I grew up in Bucks County, am a Central Bucks graduate, and currently live in Chalfont. I have been married 29 years this year and have two sons, in college and graduate school. My free time is spent visiting my sons in Washington, DC and New York City and spending time with my four year-old niece and 2 year-old nephew. I also thoroughly enjoy teaching Law & Ethics as an Adjunct Professor in the Master’s Couple & Family Therapy Program at Drexel University.
We are entertained daily by the antics of our cat Cloud and dog Bella. Bella, an Australian Shepherd looks forward to working with me each day. She provides a calm and loving atmosphere to my office and has created her own relationship with each client.
