I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who graduated with my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Kutztown University in 2016. My experience consists of working with children, teens, and adults, of varying presenting issues. During my career, I have also worked with individuals struggling with substance abuse in both outpatient and inpatient settings. I consider my therapeutic approach to be well-rounded, as I utilize the approach that I feel best meets the needs of the individual, family, or couple, to aid them in accomplishing their treatment goals.

Choosing to work through one's past, relationships, or current challenges can be a tough and bold decision toward empowerment. I believe we all hold the insight and strength we need and that it may take time to figure how to access these tools. It is my goal to work alongside you in this process. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space to allow exploration, connection and creativity in therapy.

Working at a small practice like Alternative Choices allows me to use all of my training to help a variety of clients with many types of concerns and challenges. I work with individuals, families, couples or groups, from middle school age through adulthood, to address issues related to learning disabilities, attention-deficit disorder, autism spectrum, depression, anxiety, social skills, and others. I incorporate mindfulness techniques and strategies into more conventional modes of therapy to help my clients confront, tolerate, accept, and ultimately embrace difficult emotions and moods, in order to improve the quality of their lives and relationships.

My ideal client is ready for lasting change and is actively engaging in their therapeutic journey. They're open to discussing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. These clients may be looking for understanding and support without judgment. A client who is committed to meaningful goals and willing to invest time and effort into personal growth is awesome to work with. An ideal client may seek guidance on coping with their own challenges or personal decisions but is open to embracing new perspectives. An ideal client of mine is willing to invest time and effort into their own personal growth.

We are often impacted by our past experiences in both known unknown ways, and these experiences can dictate how we form relationships with ourselves and others. Symptoms such as anxiety, depression, dissociation, difficultly forming lasting relationships, eatings struggles - just to name a few - are signals that something else, something deeper, needs to be addressed. My goal is to collaborate on creating a secure therapeutic relationship where we can be curious about your present and past, and create longer lasting change and symptom relief.

On the outside looking in it seems like you have it all together. But really you're in survival mode, wondering why it seems easier to everyone else. You are constantly looking out for the needs of others, to the point where you neglect your own basic needs. You have no idea where your illness ends and where you start. Each day feels like you are battling different parts in your own mind, struggling to get even the bare minimum done. But each day you push through, hoping for relief. Allow me to tell you that you are not alone, and you don't have to navigate this alone.
