One of the greatest honors I have in life is to walk with those who are struggling with emotional pain and trauma. I have dedicated my life to helping others, advocating through systems, and empowering individuals to build confidence in order to create positive change. If you or your children are struggling with trauma, overwhelming stress, parenting, grief and loss, or other matters that are interfering with your daily functioning, I commend you for taking the first step in living a more balanced, happier life. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor, LPC in Pennsylvania, who holds a MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a MEd in Adult Education.

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

In our first session together we will explore goals of therapy and determine the best individualized approach to address what is bringing you to therapy and create a plan to address your goals.

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

One of my biggest strengths is being trauma-informed. I have a deep understanding of the impact trauma can have on an individual's mental and emotional well-being. I am well-versed in the various types of trauma and their effects, which creates a safe and supportive environment for clients to explore and heal from their past experiences. My trauma-informed approach ensures that I consider the unique needs and sensitivities of each client, promoting their overall healing and growth. I recognize the importance of building a strong therapeutic relationship with clients. By establishing trust, empathy, and genuine connection, my goal is to create a space where clients feel comfortable sharing thoughts and emotions. I aim to meet clients where they are and provide support and guidance to navigate challenges effectively. We will prioritize your needs, goals, and preferences throughout the therapy process. I encourage clients to be active in their treatment, empowering them to take an active role in their healing journey. This approach ensures that therapy is tailored to the individual, fostering a sense of ownership and agency in their personal growth.

My treatment methods


I use techniques and interventions from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, humanistic therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, and other therapeutic modalities based on what is most appropriate for the client's unique situation and goals. This flexibility allows me to adapt the treatment as needed, incorporating elements from different approaches to best address your concerns. By integrating techniques from multiple theories and approaches, eclectic therapy aims to provide a more comprehensive and holistic treatment that can address a wider range of psychological concerns.
