For me, the ideal client would be someone who is ready to embark on their journey to find what they need or is missing from their life. Not all people need the same things to feel balanced or happy. Not all people experience the same things. Not all people are looking to get the same things out of therapy. With this information, my goal is to meet you where you are and to support you in building the life you are seeking. To the clients that may be apprehensive or unsure of what you need, that's okay too. I will explore this with you and help you to figure that out.

Is something keeping you from being your best? We all have great value and the ability to achieve great things. Sometimes, the burdens of this life, including past trouble, negative thinking/emotions, difficult circumstances, poor choices and lack of support can hold us back from reaching our potential. I believe my role as a counselor is to help others be more aware of their own strengths and abilities, so they can set and achieve positive goals. I believe in welcoming people with unconditional acceptance and support, and helping them work through difficulty to build and execute a plan to become the best version of themselves.

The nature of psychological services to you will depend on your needs. First and foremost, it is important to see if we can establish a good working relationship as it is the best predictor of a good outcome. Your treatment will involve a collaborative effort and will require active work from both of us. My general orientation is psychodynamic. In brief, this type of work involves seeing how past family of origin and developmental factors might be affecting the issues that bring you into therapy and be impinging on your ability to have a more satisfying life.

Unfortunately, we are living in some disturbing times. It is difficult to know where to turn, especially at a time when misinformation is running rampant. It is crucial that we both understand, and confront, our past in order to move forward.

I believe each of us has a gift of Self to unwrap and embrace along life's journey, especially when we've lived through a life threatening event or a series of chronic traumas. I know first hand how impossible connecting to ourselves can seem afterward. We grieve the loss of a sense of safety and often believe that our identity has changed to what has happened to us. We fear life will always be tarnished and feel set apart by our shame. Through my own life journey and my experiences as a Trauma therapist I have witnessed the reclaiming of Self that arises from the ashes of violence when healing begins to happen!

Have you noticed a change in your child's behavior? Is worry, anger or sadness affecting your family's daily life? Has your child's school expressed concerns? Difficulty coping with change and life's stressors can happen at any age. Without the appropriate skills to communicate their emotions, children often express their feelings through negative behavior. Psychotherapy can be a positive process through which children learn the strategies and skills needed to cope, adjust and effectively communicate their thoughts and feelings. I offer counseling and therapy services to children/families to assist them in this process of change.

Recovering from an eating disorder and/or severe trauma can frequently be difficult. My broad training and extensive experience enables me to work with patients in a variety of ways including traditional therapeutic approaches, the incorporation of art therapy as a component of treatment, and the use of EMDR. I work with each individual patient to determine the type of approach that best matches her personality and therapeutic needs. I have been one of the first psychotherapists to make use of expressive arts and EMDR in the treatment of eating disorders.

What type of Pittsburgh mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Pittsburgh?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
