TELEHEALTH PRACTICE. Are you someone whose intrusive thoughts and memories take over at the worst possible moments? Do you feel like you’ve become an outsider to your own life, and you don’t know how to get it back? Often times it can seem like you've tried everything, but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. Difficult experiences can turn our world from a safe place to an environment that feels unpredictable and hopeless.
I believe we all have different struggles and I provide individualized treatment and a safe place to explore the challenges in life. My philosophy is to work with the whole person, mind, body, and spirit to help you release anxiety, depression or stressful feelings that may be caused by unhelpful thoughts and behaviors. My goal is to establish a starting point that is comfortable for you in order to build a collaborative working relationship. Together, we will achieve your goals and increase fulfillment, happiness, and peace in your life.
Hello. I specialize in psycho-educational evaluations in order to help determine educational needs of students who present with learning, behavioral, and/or social/emotional challenges. In addition to my state licensure, I am certified as a school psychologist in Pennsylvania. I have been working over 20 years in school settings and private practice - and I perform initial and independent evaluations (including diagnostic assessments) while helping to resolve difficult cases in a harmonious way. I look forward to working with you and/or your child's school to find an educational program that best fits his/her needs.
I am a seasoned psychotherapist with over 17 years of experience providing assistance to clients with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, life transitions, trauma issues, eating disorders and postpartum depression. I work with children(5 and up), adolescents(ages 11 and up), young adults, couples, families and women. As a licensed clinical social worker I believe in focusing on all aspects of a person's well being; mental, physical, financial and social. I have a Masters degree in Social Work, Certified Shame-Informed Treatment Specialist, and pursuing PhD in Strategic Leadership and Administrative Studies.
My passion is working with young people and their families concerned about the impact of substance use in their lives. I understand that many people have been harmed by one-size-fit-all treatment approaches, so self-empowerment is my focus and my approach is person- and family-centric. There are many paths to wellness. This means that you are in charge of your treatment goals. I understand that any change is difficult so I'll meet you where you're at in the change process to empower you to take the next steps.
Have you been through that cycle of gut-wrenching pain about who you are, harsh and persistent criticisms of yourself, then temporary ways to get relief that you end up hating? Are you feeling hopelessly broken and unsure if anything will ever work because you are permanently damaged? Sometimes it can seem like if so much has gone wrong, then it must be me. Finding someone to actually try to listen to what you have gone through can be extremely difficult and end up feeling the same as it’s felt before, not being heard or seen, and feeling alone.
Trauma does not need to define you. You might not understand why you feel the way you do or know how to cope with the pain, confusion, anxiety, fear, anger and depression people with trauma often experience. You may not be sure how to resolve trauma and PTSD or where to start. Sometimes when we’ve been through difficult experiences, life becomes so overwhelming that we need help figuring it all out. I can help. I can help through support, education about trauma, and treatment that helps you feel better.
I work exclusively with women on an individual basis, to address issues ranging from depression/anxiety to body acceptance. I am a certified Intuitive Eating counselor, as well as a Duke-trained Integrative Health Coach. I work with women to help with life transitions, assisting them with discovering themselves again, whether it is through learning to trust themselves around food, taking the time they don’t think that they have, or helping them to tune into what is behind their self-sabotaging behaviors. Traumatic life events or mental health issues can sometimes hold us back, and I help clients to move forward on their terms.
I approach each client's therapy based on his or her unique goals and needs. You and I work together as a team to identify the patterns that are affecting your life, explore the thoughts and feelings that motivate you, and build the knowledge and skills that will allow you to live a satisfying and fulfilling life.
I specialize in clients who have suffered concussion or traumatic brain injury and those struggling with emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression, ADHD, adjustment and transition difficulties, and bereavement. I am comfortable working with all ages. When working with any client, I believe that a holistic and eclectic approach is vital to reaching each client's therapeutic goals. I feel strongly that a valuable therapeutic relationship is built upon establishment of trust through empathetic support and confidence-building. I believe that warmth, humor, and positivity are essential to working toward the client's goals and desired changes.
You've tried the diets. You've read the self-help books. You've scoured Facebook and Instagram for answers. But, you just haven't been able to find your way out of dieting cycles, binge eating and harsh self-talk that leaves you feeling defeated and like you'll never feel normal around food or your body. I want you to know that healing is possible. That you can relearn how to trust your body and that you can heal from years of shame, blame, trauma and disconnection from yourself.
My approach to therapy is relational. I create a safe environment of collaboration with clients to work toward eliminating unhealthy obstacles to achieving their goals. These behaviors and beliefs are aftereffects of traumas in their pasts. I promote healing by witnessing the client's story and providing feedback including strengths, progress and the causes of clients' pain. I see therapy as an opportunity to experience new ways of relating and coping while developing and appreciation of who they are.
Additional techniques I use as indicated are: cognitive exercises, hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy and sand tray therapy.
These are uncertain times. Do you worry that you're falling into an ever-deepening rut of fear, depression, and misery that is robbing you of inner peace and happiness? Do you find yourself ruminating about the future and unable to sleep restfully? I am a Licensed Psychologist in PA, Board Certified in Clinical Psychology, with over 40 years of experience. I trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at pioneer Dr. Aaron Beck's clinic at Penn, and have since trained many psychologists in these evidence-based methods. I am glad to discuss your unique needs and determine if I can help you.
I have over two decades of experience providing individual, family, and couples therapy to people of all ages and diagnoses. My areas of specialty include adult/adolescent Depression, Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Addiction (All Types), Anger Management, and Asperger's Disorder, for which I utilize my experience and training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, and Mindfulness Practices. In addition, utilizing Evidenced-Based Practices, I work well with families whose children struggle with behavioral and emotional problems, including diagnoses of ADHD, ODD, and Autism.
Looking to work on skills?Looking to find what is working in your life and what is not? Looking to delve deeper into your relationships? Ever wonder if your thinking patterns are healthy or not? I am a trained and licensed therapist. I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and adults who are going through difficult times and have trouble identifying emotions to behaviors. What I love about my work is that although I see people at a low point in their lives, as we work together they find the courage and skills to persevere.
No matter what background we come from life tends to bring its own suffering and difficulties. I view therapy as a place where challenges and painful emotions can be confronted in a safe and caring environment. My personality is warm and empathetic, and I aim to provide a place where clients feel heard, cared for, and listened to. I view clients as being the author of their own lives. Thus, I aim to be collaborative and to help come up with goals that are important and meaningful to you. My style is action oriented, and I try to push clients out of their comfort zones, through the use of mindfulness and behavioral changes.
I earned my Master’s in Counseling from Arcadia University and am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I have over 20 years of experience working with a wide-range of individuals, including both adolescents and adults that struggle with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, trauma, life transitions, and family conflict. I have a passion for helping others find their way through life's biggest challenges. Understanding each family's unique dynamic and applying the appropriate therapeutic technique is my area of expertise
I offer empathic therapy with a focus on trauma informed practices. My approach is collaborative and psychodynamic, and driven by the unique needs of each individual client.
