My approach is based upon finding a mutual language that we both understand & incorporating therapeutic interventions into terms you already know. I believe that those who are this far in seeking out support (you are reading an “about me” from a therapist), already have an idea of what they want to improve, be better at, &/or overcome, but might not fully know where to start or how to reach the end goal. I work collaboratively with my clients, to encourage & empower them to manage their own lives.

The voice in the head has a life of its own. Most people are at the mercy of that voice; they are possessed by thought & by the mind. Since the mind is conditioned by the past, you are then forced to reenact the past again and again. This quote by Eckart Tolle is at the core of my belief in what troubles most of us. We live in our minds, incessantly thinking about our fears, failings, troubled relationships, losses, & shortcomings. We spend too much time inside the mind. The trouble is that when we treat our thoughts and feelings as facts, we allow anxiety, doubt, sadness, hopelessness & self-loathing can take hold and thrive.

Entering therapy for the first time can initially feel stressful or overwhelming until the process unfolds and you realize that you made the right choice; to take care of yourself. Something doesn't feel quite right; maybe your relationships lack fulfillment, you have no goals, you dread your future, or maybe you stopped looking forward to waking up and facing the day. Therapy is a step by step process that requires time and hard work. Together we will explore the mystery that surrounds you as you accept the challenge that is necessary to develop a new sense of health and well-being.

Life can be so unpredictable without the right roadmap to navigate. Sometimes we are left feeling depleted, anxious, alone, and depressed. Through life’s trial and tribulations, we often feel an uncertainty of the future and find ourselves unsure of what to do next. Sometimes we find ourselves feeling as if we are living a life that we did not want, or being stuck in a repeated cycle of unhealthy patterns. If this sounds like you, then you are most certainly not alone. Together, we can help you release yourself from the negative patterns and heal core wounds while you learn to move forward and gain control over your life.

I work with those who are hard on themselves and are burdened with unprecedented responsibility right now. High responsibilities often lead to isolation as we try to hide our fears, doubts, and sadness from those that rely on us. Isolating can increase negative coping skills, like over or under eating/drinking/sleeping. Therapy should become a place to process your inner thoughts and concerns, find balance, and find some new tools to feeling more grounded. If you're are a first responder, medical/MH worker, or care giver, you are being pulled in so many directions with less resources and time to engage in self care than ever before

Anxious? Depressed? Lacking motivation or direction? You're not alone. I believe that each of us possesses the ability to change, grow and live happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives. Sometimes we just need a little help along the way. I work with persons of all ages and incorporate a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities into my practice, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all model for counseling and take special care to honor the unique lived experiences of those I work with.

Challenge is inevitable in our lives and our relationships. At times we may not know how to cope with or manage all that life brings. My approach to therapy involves warmth, compassion, and unconditional acceptance. Providing a safe space for personal and relational exploration to help clients understand, honor, and respect their deepest needs. Healing is a journey and I provide a space to be open and authentic, to feel what needs to be felt, and to move toward what matters most in your personal life and relationships.

What type of Scranton 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Scranton?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
