About

******Hello, I am currently not taking any new clients at this time.*******Create the life you want -- let me be your ally. I aim to encourage anyone seeking mental health support to consider therapy. Those looking to make positive changes or better manage life's complexities will benefit from introspection and insight through therapeutic guidance. My clients tend to be busy professionals, often navigating both internal and/or external challenges. I aim to offer goal-oriented, open minded mental health support for those dealing with complex issues and stresses of all kinds.
Located in the heart of Pittsburgh, I offer telehealth sessions that are client-driven, conversational, and change-oriented. With a non-judgemental approach, I emphasize changing thought patterns and creating coping skills so that patients may to better manage the complex challenges that life brings.
As a Certified Sex Therapist and Sex Therapy Supervisor, as well as a Breast Cancer survivor, I operate from an empathetic and holistic perspective. I take integrity seriously as I walk with clients through their lives. I strive to demonstrate support, assistance, trust, safety and inclusion for all of those who are seeking guidance.
