I have extensive experience in crisis and advocacy work and I have gained experience providing both psychotherapeutic services and counseling to children, adolescents, and adults survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.
Reaching out for therapy is a sign of courage, it is not easy to ask for help. If you are ready to start your healing journey, I would be honored to help contribute in your journey! I create a welcoming, relaxing, and non-judgmental environment for you to feel safe and comfortable to process the ups and downs life brings us. I have an eclectic approach when working with clients. I focus on empowering those I work with and meeting the client “where they are at.” I also have in session with me my Cavapoo dog, Harper, she is working towards becoming a therapy dog. If you do not like dogs, I can accommodate that as well.

It takes a great deal of courage to seek out psychological services. I admire anyone who seeks out services with me. I wholeheartedly believe that if I had the same biology and the same life experiences, I would be in the exact same position. While I offer general psychotherapy in my office on the grounds of Marywood University where I am an Assistant Professor, I specialize in treatment of intimate partner violence; a pervasive and destructive force in our culture. It is my passion to treat both offenders and those who have been impacted by violence.

My approach to counseling is from a humanistic perspective which places importance on looking at the whole person. By creating an atmosphere of safety and security, I assist the person in examining current difficulties, reconnecting to forgotten strengths and discovering their full potential. I believe that this is best achieved through understanding an individual's relationship to persons, places, things and events and how those relationships affect the person mentally, emotionally and physically.

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.

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.

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

I currently have a limited amount of availability for new clients that can meet during the day (ie: before 4pm). I believe that effective therapy can promote happiness and renewed sense of self-worth and understanding through supported self-discovery. My counseling style is non-judgmental, collaborative, caring and inclusive. I am an active listener and seek to provide an unbiased perspective in a confidential and safe environment.

Everyday life often brings about many joys but also presents us with many obstacles, challenges, and disappointments that sometimes feel unbearable and lead us feeling overwhelmed, sad, and hopeless. The way we think and process these events lead to how we feel about ourselves in relation to the world. I use a cognitive behavioral approach to treat disorders related to anxiety, depression, grief, anger, obsessions, and compulsions. I assist individuals with developing the tools and skills necessary to make cognitive and behavioral changes that can open doors of opportunity for change, growth and personal fulfillment.

As a young adult I sought out counseling to help me navigate my life's issues. It felt most beneficial when a therapist, by listening and understanding me, in a nonjudgmental, supportive and educational way, seemed to meet me where I was at both emotionally and mentally- giving me hope, the tools, the time and the motivation I needed to heal.These healing experiences gave me the desire to help others. Thus following their positive examples, I have approached everyone's treatment on an individual basis- knowing everyone is different emotionally and mentally, and are coming from different life experiences.

Your pain deserves space to breathe and be heard. Your authentic self deserves tending to. Being human is hard work. In the limited time we exist, we have countless choices to make as we shape the direction and purpose of our lives. In our struggles, perhaps we may feel phony, unsure of ourself, pressured to hide or distort our feelings and thoughts. We may feel paralyzed when trying to make the “right” decisions. We may feel deeply isolated, unable to sustain relationships where we are cherished exactly as we are. We may be haunted by past traumas and unable to forgive. Or we may wonder about our life's meaning.
