About

Welcome! Reaching out for support and counseling to make positive changes in your life takes courage. My counseling orientation is mostly Person- centered and Strength- based, however being flexible in therapy to tailor treatment for your individual needs is fundamentally important. I also practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. My style is warm and empowering. I strive to meet you with compassion, empathy, and respect.
My focus throughout my seven years in private practice has been building resiliency to depression and anxiety, integrating wellness for co-occurring disorders, and healing trauma. I am currently licensed in Pennsylvania and have been practicing for five years. HSC also offers low cost counseling for individuals with financial concerns.
Therapy is a collaborative process where you are the expert in your own life experiences and I act a supportive guide throughout your journey. I believe in building authentic therapeutic relationships, utilizing idiosyncratic strengths to achieve goals, and developing individualized treatment for comprehensive care.
