I aim of provide a safe environment for individuals seeking treatment, established from a foundation of strong ethical practice. When working with me, I'd like to believe that you will experience me as honest, genuine, authentic, transparent, and radically compassionate. I support individuals in increasing self-awareness in relation to understanding experiences, navigating their feelings, and emotions, learning their story, identifying their voice, speaking their truth, establishing boundaries for themselves, identifying a life worth living, and implementing the skills necessary to pursue meaningful recovery.
Whatever struggles you are facing, seeking professional help is the first step to a better you. We will work together to define personal challenges, set goals and overcome obstacles to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Through the therapy process, you will push towards creating balance and promoting positive growth for yourself.
Change is something that we can always rely on. It will come into our lives whether welcomed or not. Being able to find inner balance and develop resiliency can help a person move through these changes. The start of this journey to establish inner balance, whether triggered due to illness, depression, anxiety, stress, or something else, can begin with outreach for support. I am drawn to the human spirit and I love working with individuals to fulfill their ultimate potential. I work to create a safe environment that allows for exploration and vulnerability, the emergence of awareness, strength, and resiliency.
Life isn't always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life's more challenging problems. Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. Whether you struggle with anxiety , depression, self esteem, life transitions, or any other problem, you should know that there is hope for a better tomorrow. Please allow me to help guide you through your journey to feeling happier and confident while learning ways to address the issues you face and learn coping strategies to help you both right now and in future.
There are moments when you may feel overwhelmed by past memories or experiences, social issues, life responsibilities, challenging relationships, or mental/emotional struggles. My goal is to provide a space to unpack these challenges and build skills to maintain emotion/thought regulation and a healthy relationship with yourself and others. As your therapist, I will uphold an anti-oppressive lens and normalize resting and nurturing your mind, body, and spirit while existing in a demanding society. Together we'll discover how you can live a healthy, balanced life rooted in self-love.
When I began seeing a therapist, I realized just how much I needed an outlet to process hardships in my life and to feel genuinely heard, and this is exactly what I want to provide to clients who come to see me. As I have advanced in my own self-discovery and identity exploration, I have become interested in helping others in the LGBTQIA+ community on their own journeys. My approach to therapy is helping guide you to bountiful self-compassion, exploring boundaries, and discovering your own passions.
As an experienced clinical social worker specializing in the treatment of persons struggling with substance use, chronic mental illness, and traumatic brain injury my interests include working with adults/young adults 16+ who struggle with anxiety, depression, complex/single incident trauma, relationships, self-esteem, shame/guilt, LGBT issues, etc. I embrace the opportunity to join my client on their journey while using my skills of active listening, empathy, and humor to help guide, but with the knowledge that each individual knows what fits best as well as their ability to steer in the direction of their goals.
"Man is a knot into which relationships are tied". ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Flight to Arras, 1942.
I have been providing Individual and Marriage/Couples Therapy in Bucks County, Pennsylvania for over 20 years. I am a member of the Pennsylvania Psychological Association, Academy of Psychologist Engaged in Private Practice in the Lehigh Valley, and the Philadelphia Society of Clinical Psychologists.
Throughout my work and training, I feel I have relearned the meaning of therapy. I, like most, used to see therapy as only a solution to a problem. Something has to be wrong in order for one to seek therapy. While counselors are certainly here to help with symptoms and adversities, I encourage anyone seeking growth and perspective to consider therapy. We have all heard the phrase, “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.” Why do we have to wait for something to be broken? Reach out for support now, wherever you are in your timeline, because you deserve it and that’s ok.
Are you struggling with feeling stuck? Intrusive thoughts that are racing in your head? Are you feeling more stressed in relationships, work or school? Are you someone that has always been a worrier and would like to change? I’d be happy to help! My objective is to provide you with an immediate welcoming, judgment-free, and safe environment. It is important to me that you have the opportunity to express yourself at your own pace and to be heard. My style is warm and practical with a focus on supporting the development of positive mindsets and improved daily functioning.
Everybody experiences adversity differently. Not only is it is important to get to the core issues that are interfering with your daily functioning, but also to have someone provide understanding about these issues. My job is to focus on the presenting symptoms and work to get to the root of the problem. Whether you need individual or family counseling, I can provide it in a safe and comfortable atmosphere. By working together, you will be able to better identify strategies to help manage your symptoms and improve everyday life.
Accepting New Clients. It is crucial to meet individuals where they are and help guide them to find what they need or are looking for in life. I work with adults and children 10 and older to help cope with depression, anxiety, ADHD, PANDAS, Autism, trauma, relationships, stress, life transitions, and parenting issues. The ultimate goal is to feel happy and fulfilled. I can also help with special education needs and school concerns, including attending school meetings. In addition, I am bilingual and work with Spanish speaking clients.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile! I work with a variety of clients, including those experiencing anxiety or depression, trauma, worry, relationship challenges, and blended family challenges, to name a few. I collaborate with clients to meet their essential, immediate goals, and work to promote long-term wellness by identifying a person's innate strengths and resourcefulness. You know yourself best - I am here to listen, learn, and help.
My approach is to foster a strong relationship built upon a foundation of trust, openness, support, honesty, non-judgment, and on occasion - humor. Working in collaboration with you, I use a strength-based and recovery-oriented approach, coupled with evidence-based interventions to help you develop deeper meaning, increase social connectedness, strengthen coping skills, and help empower you to achieve your therapeutic goals. You are the expert on your life and I will be next to you providing support with my clinical skills along the way. I look forward to working with you on this journey.
Life is hard! I believe that everyone needs someone to walk alongside them at times throughout their life journey. Life Giving Counseling Services (LGCS) is a place to be renewed, refreshed, and to get refueled to withstand life's difficulties and tragedies. The counseling experience should be a safe, compassionate place where your voice gets heard, and your body, mind, and soul get restored. I named my practice LGCS because I believe that counseling should be life-giving to people while so much inside and outside of us is life-draining.
Have you been struggling with self-guilt, a harsh inner critic, feeling like you can never be enough? These are signs that our self-compassion has been weakened through either struggles we faced in the past, trauma, or habits we formed over time. I have a deep understanding of how to activate self-compassion and develop a more loving relationship with our everyday life. I use the tools of meditation, mindfulness, art practice, transpersonal therapy, and connection forming self-work to guide this process. My approach is grounded in connection forming through heightening our awareness of how we give and receive in our life.
Welcome to my practice! I currently have a wait list of 3 months.I work with children from 5 years old to the dear elderly population. I have a specialty in Play Therapy and I am only one of a few Registered Play Therapists in Bucks County. I hold an MSW degree, and have a graduate certificate from Temple University in Play Therapy.Play Therapy can help with behavioral issues, abuse, social skills, school issues, phobias, abandonment, grief, trauma, divorce, crisis, self injurious behaviors, low self-esteem, anxiety, trauma, depression and grief just to mention a few areas.
My objective is to help you identify your strengths to enable better management of on-going difficulties and break free from a sense of "stuckness." I place an emphasis on clients' unique cultural elements to help personalize and maximize treatment efficiency. I want us to incorporate your values as the structure for our work together.
