I am a Licensed Social worker, working towards becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I obtained my Master’s degree from Temple University in 2014 where I specialized in mental health. I believe that everyone has the capacity to succeed in life and reach their full potential, but living in a world full of high expectations and pressure can leave you feeling lost and confused in your mind and body. The pain you endure through trauma, loss and grief can cause you questioning the purpose of life and how can you cope.

My ideal client aims to engage in an active partnership to build self-awareness and take action to make a change. I will give you feedback and challenge you, which is not everyone’s cup of tea! I work best with those suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, overwhelm, trauma, or emotional flooding. Many of my clients report that our work helped them shift from survival mode to a sense of thriving. I suggest homework; your progress is based on your willingness to practice. The ideal client for my strengths is someone who wants to learn and shift by discovering tangible skills and techniques they can use in their own lives.

Managing emotional stress related to personal issues, relationships, work, or school can frequently be an overwhelming challenge. As a psychologist with over twenty years of experience I have successfully helped many adults, adolescents, and couples experiencing problems with anxiety, depression, anger, emotional stress, and relationship problems. The goal of counseling is to reduce your emotional stress, help you to feel better, improve your relationships, and to help you develop successful strategies to effectively manage life problems and challenges.

Nobody gets through life without difficult experiences. Some experiences, like living through childhood neglect, abuse, or family dysfunction, make everyday stressors even more difficult. Difficult childhood experiences don’t just “go away” once we become adults. They can impact every aspect of adult life.

TELE-THERAPY, will be available to all as we navigate through these difficult times. As a (CBT) Certified Cognitive Behavior Therapist with over 30 years of experience I understand beginning therapy is not an easy decision to make. When the stress and worries in our lives become insurmountable, it can leave us feeling immobilized and sometimes depressed. We can become tired of talking about making changes in our lives but not know what direction to go. Perhaps circumstances can prevent us from living our best life. Through a collaborative process I can provide you with effective tools and insights that can help,

My passion is working with children, teenagers, young adults, couples and families to process trauma and difficult experiences so they can experience growth and healing within themselves and their relationships. Through my work with individuals and family's I have learned the deep importance of understanding "what has happened" to people rather than viewing people through the lens of "what is wrong with people". Likewise, the importance of understanding family of origin and how this shapes our views of people and the world and impacts how we relate with people and navigate our world.

I perceive my work as a psychotherapist as more privilege than profession. I work with people who need help identifying the obstacles that keep them from evolving and growing. Living with depression and anxiety inhibits a person from feeling emotional fulfillment and interferes with how people relate to themselves and others. We need a safe place in which to look at ourselves without fear of judgment and criticism. Feeling safe and supported leads to self acceptance, and growth. I provide guidance within such an environment.

Every single person is deserving of authentic love and belonging. If our relationships do not exhibit that then we have to work to change it. No couple is perfect, but the happy couple is dedicated, devoted, and committed. Relationships can be challenging and sometimes have a way making us feel lonely or not good enough. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Couples and individual therapy is designed to encourage, uplift, help you create space for your partner and to connect with new skills and tools.

The primary focus of my practice is working with clients who have experienced trauma and/or have experienced issues with substance abuse. Many times, they go hand in hand. This includes people contemplating sobriety, those in early recovery who may need support, those in longer recovery who are ready to tackle some deeper issues as well as those who have been or are negatively impacted by someone else’s substance abuse. This could be a parent, spouse or child. Maybe someone is concerned about your drinking and you aren’t sure you have a problem or not sure you’re ready to stop or are sober and feeling stuck. Reach out for support.

Life is filled with times of transition and times of change. This couldn't be more true than for the life of a child or an adolescent. School stressors, personal identity, family separations, forming healthy friendships, and an overwhelming desire for acceptance are all things that a child or adolescent may deal with regularly. In these moments it is crucial for a young person to feel understood and listened to in order to be helped. Coming alongside a young person in whatever place they may be residing in is where my heart resides. Many times this age group can be overlooked or misunderstood, but their needs still remain.

Attachment-based Therapists

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
