If you have experienced sexual violence in the state of Pennsylvania, ask me about ways to assist with covering costs. As a psychotherapist, I enjoy helping clients implement positive change in their lives, whether it's overcoming trauma, decreasing anxiety or depression, finding new meaning after the loss of a loved one, or making a much needed career change. I believe the purpose of therapy is to enable personal growth that leads to the best version of yourself, and I would be honored to join you on your journey to improved well-being.
I work from a humanistic framework and believe in the importance of exploring how you can find meaning and increase well-being in your life. I am also partially trained in EMDR to help address trauma. My previous experiences includes alcohol and drug abuse treatment, residential and community behavioral health, group psychotherapy, and individual counseling.
I am currently accepting individual clients for tele-health sessions and group clients for in-person sessions. I understand how difficult it can be finding a therapist who is a good fit. Feel free to reach out for a free consultation so we can get to know each other. Outside of therapy, you might find me playing music, buying records, or skateboarding.

I believe the effectiveness of therapy comes from the relationship developed between the therapist and the client. Rather than conceptualizing myself as an expert having all the answers, my goal is to join you where you are at, where you direct the focus of the the session based on your needs. I additionally integrate EMDR to help clients further process traumatic experiences.
