I enjoy working with adults seeking treatment for anxiety, depression, substance abuse concerns, interpersonal and relationship issues, anger management, parenting, and problems stemming from stress management and life transitions. I have primarily worked with adults involved in the criminal justice system, which has afforded me the opportunity to work with individuals from all walks of life and with a wide range of treatment needs. I have struggled with an anxiety disorder in the past, which has provided me with insight into the challenges some of my clients face.

As a licensed clinical social worker, I have dedicated my entire nearly 30-year career to working with older adults and their loved ones. My passion is helping our elders work through the many life transitions that are often associated with growing older. While this phase of life is often met with dread and despair, I strive to help individuals realize their potential to live a meaningful, joyful life, regardless of age, disability, or losses. I do this through an eclectic, supportive therapeutic approach.

I see the children, adolescents and adults I work with gaining self awareness and understanding through the treatment process Through openness, honesty and self respect all people have the ability to improve their circumstances and happiness.
I believe that the power of therapy comes through the understanding of how self defeating patterns of behavior interfere with our ability to have a happy and productive life. I believe that focusing and building on our strengths will enhance our functioning. Examining our behavior is critical to developing healthy options for ourselves and in our relationships. Through an open and respectful process we will examine the areas in your life that have interfered with your ability to make positive, forward thinking choices. As you develop different coping strategies the hope of change will support healing and growth.

I work with older adolescents (17+) and adults who suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety, trichotillomania (compulsive hair pulling), compulsive skin picking, body dysmorphic disorder, and depression.
Are you anxious or depressed? Is anxiety or depression interfering with your life? Anxiety and depression can be paralyzing and may prevent you from living the kind of life that you seek. Typical coping strategies may provide limited but not lasting relief. I can help you to identify, modify, eliminate or manage the behaviors and beliefs that fuel anxiety and mood disorders. By learning a new set of skills, you can pursue the life you desire free from the burdens that have held you back.

I see adults in Congruent Counseling’s Millersville office (and via telehealth!) Please reach out to our front desk team by phone or through our website to schedule an appointment.
Whether you’re looking to address a specific concern, bring big changes to your life, or feel more present in the life you’ve already built, counseling is a great resource. I enjoy helping individuals with anxiety and OCD get back to - or create - the life they want to be living.  I also have a special interest in anxiety and distress about environmental and climate-related concerns, so we can talk about worry, fear, dread, and the discomfort of the unknown in many different shapes and sizes.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
