These days, many of the people with whom I form a therapeutic relationship are those who have been unsatisfied with prior therapy efforts. In addition, I often work with mental health and medical professionals and their families, as well as persons employed in academia. That said, I enjoy sorting out all sorts of relationship difficulties and the underlying personality issues. In terms of patient populations, I work with individual adults and couples, upset teens and young adults. I am a fully trained psychoanalyst, as well, so I am comfortable with very intimate work, often using the couch. Commitment is a two-way street.

As a perfectionist you hold yourself to a high standard in all things. Your attention to detail has gotten you far in life but when things don’t go according to plan it’s hard to adjust and you end up feeling stuck. When you’re an overthinker, you’re running a constant dialogue in your head. You are all too familiar with the “what if” game and spend your time mapping out multiple scenarios but cost you missing out on joy. Being a people-pleaser is exhausting and cost you losing touch with yourself and your own needs. You doubt your own ability to make the “right” choice and worry that others will see through your mask of confidence.

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.

I strongly believe that you are the expert of your own life and that everyone always has the answers and solutions. Sometimes, however, we might need some help finding those answers and solutions for ourselves. My goal as a therapist is to be the guiding post that can help you find your answers, to help you with relationships, and to provide you with the tools you need. As a therapist, I work toward making you feel comfortable, safe, and heard. I focus on validating your experiences, encouraging you to speak your thoughts and to recognize what it is that you want out of your life and what may (or may not) stand in your way.

It's not whats wrong with you, it's whats happened to you. I believe that our past plays a significant role in our present. Genetics, environments we grew up in, and life experiences all have ways of creating patterns of thoughts and behaviors. When people have a safe, nonjudgemental space to explore their thoughts and feelings, they can begin to process the experiences, gain understanding of themselves, and start healing. I pull from CBT, DBT, client centered therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness practices, and psychoeducation to help clients gain awareness, understanding, and tools to move forward from the past.

While every counseling experience is unique, the team at Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute (PPI) seeks to provide an empathetic relationship in which individuals and families can safely and freely discuss their challenges and concerns in a holistic context carefully considering the mind, body, and soul in therapy. This is also a "person-centered" process in which the client determines the areas of exploration and discovery.

There is no shame in struggling. Even the most healthy of people will go through periods of struggle. Sometimes we reach a point in our lives where we realize we have painful experiences from our early life that now need to be resolved and put to rest. We may be tired of an unresolved past disrupting our relationships and life in the present. Finally, sometimes, it's just that life has been thrown at us faster than we can process. This can cause unexpected anxiety or make us feel like things are out of control. Anxiety does not need to be feared. It can be managed and mastered.

**Currently unable to accept new clients at this time.** Have you felt distracted lately at work or at school, feeling this overwhelming sense of dissatisfaction? Do you find you're more distressed than usual over daily stressors, simple chores or minor arguments? And do you find yourself constantly thinking about all the things you want to change? You may know what behaviors you have that are causing you distress or you may lack insight into what it is that is getting in your way. Either way, when you know something has to change, but you don't know how to go about it, therapy may be the answer.

Are you struggling and frustrated with life problems and traditional help is not working? I offer an organic blending of traditional eastern healing practices with western psychotherapy. This work helps you deepen your connection to the answers which are already within you. I just help you "see" them, and assist you in bridging a connection between the healthy self and those parts of you that are struggling to be healthy. I call these dissonant parts. These dissonant parts can create disorder and dysfunction. We work as partners on a path towards unity, health and well-being.

I help people who are confused by their emotions to develop a sense of control and safety in exploring their thoughts, memories and feelings. I work with people who have experienced sexual/physical/emotional abuse in childhood, or assault in adulthood, community violence, gender violence or incarceration; and who find it hard to control anger, sadness, mood swings, stress, to trust themselves, others or have close relationships. I believe that honest, compassionate discussion lets you approach what you might want to ignore, but won’t go away; or explore what might not have space to be said with friends or family.

Imagine searching for 'Therapist Near Me' and and realizing you don't have to leave the comfort of your home for services. If you want to bypass traffic in Pittsburgh, Harrisburg and Philadelphia, please allow me to bring therapy to you. Perhaps you're tired of juggling life's circumstances. Maybe the anxiety is just too much and you wonder if it's actually possible to feel calm, confident and accomplished. Could it be the complications of life are too overwhelming and the pressure to meet everyone's expectations is absolutely exhausting. Imagine if there was a way to begin LIVING life instead of existing and watching it pass by.
