I have many areas of specialty, which include work with children and adolescents, college students, psycho-educational assessment, substance abuse, and forensic consultation and assessment.
I enjoy working with people who present with a variety of backgrounds and challenges. I believe that the relationship is the most important and powerful part of therapy. Whether I'm involved in play therapy with a child or problem solving with an adult client, I wish for my caring and support to be most evident. I work with children, adolescents and adults dealing with anxiety, depression, learning problems, and substance abuse. I conduct testing and forensic psychology evaluations as well.

I have worked with adults, adolescents, and children.
I am not accepting new clients at this time. Making that call and advocating for ourselves to get the help we need is big step. My aim is to create a safe space that can foster individual change and help you navigate the answers they already have within themselves. I strive to create a personalized environment for people to explore their feelings and do the hard work to create the lives they desire. Therapy can be intimidating for many and I aim to meet people where they are and use the therapeutic relationship to foster growth.

I work with children, adults, couples using a variety of approaches, including psycho-dynamic psychotherapy, play therapy, EMDR and CBT as needed to address individual concerns, hopes, dreams, and goals.
Psychotherapy may address specific concerns and it can also help you to live a richer and fuller life. Individuals often seek the support of a psychologist for many reasons, including stress, depression, anxiety, relationship and family issues, and difficulty with transitions. I try to provide both support and insight to help individuals live a life that is more fulfilling and less difficult. Often, someone may express a concern about a child, a relationship, or work issues. I believe that change occurs within the context of the therapeutic relationship where the client and therapist work together a trusting environment.

Most of us can benefit from a coach from time to time to help us deal with issues such as: relationships, parenting, adolescent struggles, substance misuse, abuse or addiction, anxiety and depression.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Swissvale, PA provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Swissvale build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
