Life can be a puzzle. Sometimes, pieces seem to be missing; other times, we aren't sure if we have all of the pieces. How do we put the pieces together? Do they fit? I believe the answer lies within you to solve the puzzle. Working together, we can discover the best part of you and the best fit for you. By using resources, knowledge and the therapeutic relationship, my goal is to empower individuals. My intent is to help you find a healthy balance in order to care for yourself and have healthy relationships.
An ideal client would be an individual that finds something missing. If you feel that there's an obstacle that is stopping you from achieving and reaching your goals, my practice can help you figure it out. Whether it's depression, anxiety, stress, family/social pressure, trauma, I use a number of therapeutic approaches to help you work through issues and concerns, develop the tools to cope with future obstacles and achieve your goals. I have strong background in mental health, substance abuse treatment, and physical health so I can provide a well-rounded therapeutic experience.
Life is a series of challenges in different stages, requiring us to find balance in all types of relationships, navigating through various barriers in our environment. Managing it alone can feel overwhelming, stressful, and lonely. These challenges also bring about the discovery of individual strength, self-exploration, and personal growth. Therapy helps and supports the process that you seek. I meet you where you are in life and create a safe space to support your journey.
Each struggle in life brings an opportunity to uncover conflicts and create healing with a deeper exploration in therapy. I meet people where they are in life and begin treatment there. I have hope that healing can occur in everyone if they have motivation. I use a creative arts, integrative, evidence based model to explore patterns, beliefs, and get to the core so we can rebuild where the healing is needed. With children, I use play therapy and creative arts. I use insight, goals, and strengths to create treatments plans. We re-assess every few months to track progress.
I am focused on supporting clients who feel challenged either in a particular phase of their life's journey and want help processing their needs and goals or who are struggling to find peace and want to explore tools and techniques that can help them feel more grounded and discover their inner strengths.
Your anxiety is at an all time high. There are so many layers to it, so much stress, it's hard to concentrate. You may be using substances more to help forget about it all. Your anxiety leads to sadness, or frustration, or anger and it is relentless. If only there was a way to turn off all of the thoughts. It's affecting your relationships, your sleep, and your happiness. You may be thinking that you need to make changes, but you put it off until the next day, and then the next.
Are you struggling with negative, ineffective thought patterns? Possibly you have been challenged with disordered eating for most of your life? Maybe you have experienced a trauma or struggle with an addiction that affects you daily. Or perhaps your relationship is in need of some more effective communication practices. Most often our patterns of behavior are caused by the connection to our thoughts, and in turn, our emotions. Without challenging our mind to think differently, we can end up feeling stuck in a cycle of negativity. We can help you get unstuck, utilizing new skills and living life to its maximum potential.
I have been a licensed psychologist in Pennsylvania since 2003, and practicing in the Bucks County area as a Christian therapist since 1991. I have experience dealing with a wide range of issues and working with children, adolescents, and adults, in addition to teaching at the graduate level. I get tremendous joy from seeing people take their troubling symptoms, the panic attacks, the depressed mood, the self-defeating patterns of relating, and use them to build the self-understanding and character strength necessary to boldly love and experience the kind of intimacy in relationships they never thought possible.
I work with clients in order to help them to find wellness and balance. People often face difficulties with life's challenges, whether it's a temporary struggle or something that has been a long standing problem, I strive to empower my clients to find their own inner resources. We all have our own unique sources of strength and resiliency to deal with difficulties. My goal is to help guide you to your own strength by listening, engaging genuinely, and providing practical tools that you can use in your every day life.
I’ve been in the counseling field for nearly 30 years and continue to feel passionate about helping each person, family or couple. As a faith-based therapist I integrate my clinical experience & training with biblical beliefs in my treatment approach. Healthy relationships are vital to living a satisfying and fulfilling life. The first step in healing is self-awareness. Understanding your emotions and thoughts can guide you in establishing healthy boundaries. Second, grasping the body-mind connection is vital to the transformation process. Lastly, identifying your attachment style can improve your friendships, marriage and family.
Does your child seem angry, sad, or worried? Are these behaviors impacting school, family, or friendships? Therapy is a way to overcome and grow through difficult times. WSCC works with children, teens, and families who are facing a wide range of emotional, behavioral, academic, and relational difficulties.

I've been counseling children and teens for over 10 years. I specialize in treating anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, difficulty managing emotions, and parenting skills. I use art and creative interventions to teach coping skills for children going through life changes such as grief and loss, divorce, and parental addiction. I involve parents in sessions to give them the tools to support their child. I help parents strengthen their relationship with their child and learn new ways to respond to their child's challenging behaviors. I offer a safe and warm space to open up about parenting difficulties.
With seven years in the field, I utilize both empathy and humor to create a comfortable space for my clients. I support my clients by encouraging them to find their voice in order for them to meet their own therapeutic goals and to create a fulfilling life. My therapeutic style includes open and honest communication that provides transparency between my client and myself. I encourage my clients to see that they are resilient beings who can adapt to the changes life may bring.I use various creative techniques and incorporate mindfulness practices, meditation, and spiritual components for those who are interested.

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.
Therapy begins with the relationship and is nurtured with support and non-judgmental feedback during the counseling process. Our work will be genuine and understanding of individual life experiences which will support exploration and healthy changes in your life. I work with a range of clinical issues including trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties and addiction. I am experienced working with diverse ethnic, racial, and socio-economic client populations.
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.
