Hello, I am a licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Pennsylvania and Connecticut. I specialize in working with Couple's, Grief and Loss, Men's issues, and Young professionals. I enjoy lowering the stigma of therapy, it doesn't have to be intimidating. Together we work on the presenting issues, in a collaborative and supportive approach.

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

Our first session will consist of introductions. I will introduce myself, my background, what to expect with therapy, how to schedule, reschedule, stay in contact between sessions etc. I will then address any initial questions in starting therapy. A lot of questions about background of the client are gathered during the first one or two sessions. It's really important to start to build a relationship and gain insight into the presenting issues, the first few sessions are the focus of this.

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

Being licensed since 2017, my greatest strength as a provider is building relationships with my clients. Once a relationship is established, therapy is that much easier for both client and myself. I enjoy removing the stigma of therapy, and making therapy less intimating for all involved. Therapy can be cool, casual, and I strive at providing that for my clients. Therapy with me is a collaborative, constructive, and supportive environment.

My treatment methods

Christian Counseling

I will help you explore your faith alongside your relationships, emotions, mental health, and physical well-being.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT can help people by giving them tools to challenge the negative thoughts and override them with more realistic and positive thought processes. CBT is also used to help many more psychological problems.

Strength-Based

Strength-based therapy is a type of positive psychotherapy and counseling that focuses on your internal strengths and resourcefulness, rather than on your weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings.
