As a licensed professional counselor, I have experience working with a diverse group of clients. I enjoy working with families and adult individuals, however, my passion and specialty involve working with children, pre-teens, and teenagers. Over the past five years, I have specialized in working with severely traumatized children and adolescents. These children have suffered distresses ranging from sexual abuse to domestic violence. One of the biggest problems that I am seeing is peer pressure, bullying and social anxiety. Children need tools and I believe in working with their strengths to build up self-esteem and increase their ability to make positive choices.

I specialize in working with children and teens. My goal is to help my young clients live well-adjusted lives to the best of their abilities by teaching problem-solving and social skills to boost self-esteem and decrease stress and anxiety.

Currently, I am Ph.D. ABD, working on my dissertation. I teach undergraduate classes at Geneva College and Waynesburg University. I am finishing my certification in Trauma-Focused CBT Certification. My memberships include the American Counseling Association, The Association for Counselor Education and Supervision, The Pennsylvania Counseling Association, and The North Carolina Counseling Association.
