Integrated therapeutic orientations.  Many therapists rely on only one therapeutic orientation or theoretic framework.  My education at two Ivy League institutions and afterwards (in New York City, Philadelphia, Dallas, and Kansas City), has trained me to use an integrated approach, pulling from several therapeutic models to tailor each session to what you, the client, need at each point in time.  The following are the models I primarily use:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Psychodynamic Therapy
  • Systems Theory
  • Family Therapy
  • Play Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy
  • Brief Solutions Based Therapy


  • Columbia University School of Social Work, New York, NY, Master of Science (MSW, Master of Social Work)
  • University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, Bachelor of Arts
