My goal in therapy is to educate throughout the process of therapy and offer support to overcome obstacles. I aim to teach long-term coping skills, build insight, motivate self-learning, and encourage independence.

There are times when we feel like we can use extra support in life. Children may feel vulnerable and need their caring adult to help them find this support. For adults, that can come in the form of reaching out to a friend. We don’t always seek support because we feel shame, are too nervous, or are worried about what others might think. Talking to someone outside of your circle, in a non-judgmental environment, can often relieve some of that stress.

I work with children, adolescents, and adults seeking therapeutic treatment and psychological evaluations. The goal of treatment is to assist the individual in actualizing their potential through a strengths-based approach to cognitive behavioral techniques. It's important that each person understands their worth and utilizes the tools learned in therapy in their daily lives. In addition to individual therapy, I am also able to offer diagnostic evaluations and psychological testing as a means to understand complex issues and formulate the most appropriate treatment plan for each individual.

My initial MSW specialization was direct practice work with children, youth and families.
As a licensed clinical social worker with more than 40 years experience of working with families and individuals of all ages, I find that the most effective approach is one that is strengths-based with a strong emphasis on helping clients solve the problems that bring them to me for therapy and also on helping them develop powerful resiliency characteristics that allow for future problem-solving, conflict resolution, goal-attainment, wellness, and life satisfaction. My ideal client is one who likes to learn. Trauma survivors, in particular, do well with this approach.

Maybe, you're feeling stuck or are struggling with a life transition and don't know where to turn? It can be hard to ask for help, but a little help is often what we need in order to connect with our own inner capacity to cope and heal. I have experience helping children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly to manage life's difficulties and work toward health, happiness, and acceptance.

Anxiety is everywhere these days. We're all making our way through a sea of unknowns, and our children are along for the ride. I believe that YOU, a parent or caregiver, have been doing the very best that you can for your child. I also know that with limited resources, a lack of external support or your own mental health strain, supporting a struggling child often feels impossible. If you’ve exhausted a list of ideas to help your child with little progress, let me join you. Together we can redistribute that emotional weight you’re carrying and give your child a big wide space to heal and grow.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Monroeville, PA provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Monroeville build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
