I have found meaning in working with adult individuals who are experiencing difficulties in their relationships (family, friends, romantic partners, co-workers, etc.) and/or challenges in adjusting to life transitions. I have had success in helping people work through the anxiety and depressive symptoms that often come up for us during these specific times. I also enjoy working with emerging adults who might be struggling to adjust to newfound responsibilities, independence, and life decisions. In our work together we will not only navigate immediate challenges but also find new insights and a deeper self-awareness that will help you develop a healthier relationship with yourself and others. I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. Since earning my Master's degree from Eastern University in 2014, I have worked in a variety of settings including schools, community behavioral health centers, and a group practice. In these settings I have worked with adolescents and adults experiencing a variety of challenges including depression, anxiety, anger, grief, and the impact of psychological trauma.


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

In our first session I will have questions about your history and your current life but following that first session I think about our time together as your time. That means my goal is to create a therapeutic space where you feel comfortable talking about whatever it is that you may need to talk about on any given day. I don't typically come to our sessions with an agenda. My job is to listen and to reflect - to hold up a "mirror" in an effort to help you gain insight and self-awareness that can be used for change.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

The foundation for my work is simply the belief that all of us were built for relationships. As a result, the relationship between therapist and person-in-therapy is the vehicle for change. You will find that my work includes a Client-Centered approach to building therapeutic rapport and incorporates several different models for change. I often draw from Cognitive Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and most prominently from a Psychodynamic approach.

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

I take pride in being able to quickly establish therapeutic rapport, which really just involves providing a warm, inviting space where you feel comfortable talking about yourself with some assurance that you will be heard and that I will be an empathetic, objective, non-judgmental presence. Creating and establishing this rapport allows us to begin working on the challenges that brought you to therapy in an effective way and provides opportunities for growth in ways that you may not have even considered before.
