My priority is the wellness and safety of your child, all of our families, and the general public. Currently, I am conducting sessions by secure video conference and phone.
Welcome to my website. I am happy to share with you information about my practice. We will collaborate and partner with each other as we evaluate the issues that bring you to therapy. I draw from therapeutic models that are appropriate to your goals. Our work together will aim to increase self-awareness, build support, strengthen relationships, learn and practice skills, and make meaningful life changes. I balance acceptance, compassion and empathy with a results-oriented approach. I believe the process supports the outcome.
With children and adolescents it is especially important to be authentic and relatable, and to help parents navigate parenting through challenging times. I specialize in individual, family, child, adolescent, couple and group therapy. I have worked for over twenty four years as a psychotherapist and on multi-disciplinary teams in schools, community health, and social service agencies.
My treatment specialties include:
-Couple and Family Therapy
I also offer:
- Teen Personal Growth Group - see groups page
- Ongoing Personal Growth Group at The Gestalt Institute of Cleveland since 2001

Working with children and adolescents requires an up-to-date understanding of school-related issues. I give back to my profession and learn from other social workers by providing general and school social work training supervision.
As a native Clevelander, I am deeply committed to providing sound and effective treatment in the communities I serve.
Collaboration and communication are critical to good care and I believe wholeheartedly in a team approach. I work to keep the lines of communication open with parents, teachers, school personnel, and other providers.
My office is located inside a re-purposed original Shaker Heights school building in a quiet residential neighborhood. Please note the entrance to the building is on Falmouth Road.
