Welcome! As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Pennsylvania, I bring a wealth of experience and compassion to my practice. With a Master's degree from Temple University and four years in the field, I specialize in assisting individuals across all age groups – children, adolescents, and adults – as they navigate trauma, PTSD symptoms, anxiety, and challenges with emotional regulation. My mission is to support my clients in their journey toward self-discovery, resilience, and personal growth, empowering them to embody the best versions of themselves.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our initial session, we'll begin with introductions followed by a deep dive into the obstacles you're encountering. Collaboratively, we'll pinpoint your challenges and aspirations, mapping out where you envision your life in the coming months and year. From there, we'll explore potential pathways and techniques to help you achieve those goals. By the session's end, you'll gain clarity on your situation and leave equipped with actionable steps to take immediately. Additionally, we'll maintain an open dialogue for feedback and accountability throughout our journey together.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

As a provider, my greatest strengths lie in my compassionate and empathetic approach to therapy. I am deeply committed to creating a safe and supportive space where clients feel heard, understood, and valued. I prioritize inclusivity, embracing diversity in all its forms, and ensuring that clients from all backgrounds and identities feel respected and validated in therapy. Furthermore, I excel in collaboratively developing treatment plans and setting achievable goals with my clients. By actively involving clients in the therapeutic process, I empower them to take ownership of their healing journey and work towards tangible progress. My ability to listen attentively, offer guidance, and provide practical tools enables clients to overcome obstacles, build resilience, and achieve meaningful growth and transformation.

My treatment methods

Trauma-Focused CBT

Over the years, I've incorporated Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) into my clinical practice, guiding many individuals through the journey of healing from traumatic experiences. This therapeutic approach combines cognitive and behavioral techniques tailored specifically to address the effects of trauma. In my practice, I utilize TF-CBT to help clients process traumatic memories, manage distressing emotions, and rebuild a sense of safety and empowerment. By integrating evidence-based strategies within a supportive therapeutic environment, my goal is to facilitate meaningful and sustainable healing for those impacted by trauma.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

For the past four years, I've integrated CBT techniques into my therapeutic approach, benefiting numerous clients by empowering them to confront persistent thoughts and cope with anxiety. Through CBT, we'll explore the interconnectedness of your thoughts, emotions, and actions, leveraging this understanding to reshape your cognitive patterns. This process aims to equip you with tools to navigate life with reduced anxiety and stress.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

In my professional journey, Mindfulness-Based Therapy (MBT) has been a cornerstone of my practice, witnessing its transformative impact on numerous clients. Through MBT, individuals cultivate a non-judgmental awareness of their present experiences, fostering resilience and promoting mental well-being. In therapy sessions, I guide clients in incorporating mindfulness practices to cultivate self-awareness, cope with distress, and foster emotional regulation. By integrating mindfulness techniques with therapeutic interventions, I aim to empower clients to navigate life's challenges with greater clarity, compassion, and inner peace.

Strength-Based

Throughout my practice, Strength-Based Therapy is a pivotal approach in guiding clients towards growth and resilience. This therapeutic model focuses on harnessing individuals' inherent strengths, talents, and resources to overcome challenges and achieve their goals. By shifting the focus from deficits to assets, Strength-Based Therapy fosters a sense of empowerment and self-efficacy in clients. In my sessions, I work collaboratively with clients to identify and amplify their strengths, encouraging them to leverage these assets in navigating life's complexities. Through this strengths-based lens, my aim is to facilitate meaningful and sustainable positive change, empowering clients to realize their full potential and thrive.
