Let's Connect (717) 925-2825
I work with individuals (ages 14 & up) looking for relief, a change, direction, & for things to not feel so hard anymore. I am licensed to see patients state-wide in CA & PA & have an online teletherapy practice. My treatment style focuses on working to help patients gain a better understanding of what is going on & then teach strategies to lessen intrusive, anxiety & to build confidence. The reason I am able to achieve great results with my patients is that I help them figure out what factors & maladaptive patterns get in the way & teach them strategies to help alter these patterns so they can reach their full potential.
My goal is for you to notice growth by actively involving you in conversations that build effective skills, strategies, & confidence, resulting in changes in behavior & functioning. They are then reinforced by individualized exercises & plans, which are implemented outside of therapy sessions to allow for practice & application of skills & strategies.
When you work with me, you can expect to feel my support & encouragement. I am direct, provide education & challenge you to meet your goals & potential. You can certainly anticipate humor & laughter, to feel hopeful, & have a space to share things you are proud of & that are important to you.

I strive to have patients understand more about aspects of their mental health including what happens in the brain (thoughts/emotions) & the body (physical response). I will teach you tools & strategies to use to help reduce & improve unpleasant thoughts, feelings, & behaviors. I aim to help you learn more about yourself in the process.

I draw heavily from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) & Exposure Response Prevention (ERP). I often break down psychological concepts in easy-to-remember analogies to help for better understanding & application. I am honest. I will push & encourage you when necessary. I will laugh with you. I will point out & celebrate your growth & change. I want therapy to be useful, helpful & enjoyable.
