Often there is hesitation and fear when we take those first steps toward seeking help. Many people envision a therapist as a disconnected observer; however, my clinical approach is very relational and collaborative, meaning you and I both work together toward your healing. Once we've established a foundation of trust, my style tends toward creative and playful, as I feel the role of laughter is often undervalued in the therapeutic process. Our struggles are not silly, but we human beings often are. People typically enter treatment expecting tears, and they often come, but joy is equally powerful and cathartic.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master of Science Degree in Education from Duquesne University. For the past fifteen years, I have worked in multiple settings ranging from private practice, schools, residential treatment programs and non-profit agencies. I am passionate about empowering individuals and families to overcome personal obstacles and improve their interpersonal relationships. My belief is that it is important for a person to be whole, before they can a viable part of any unit. Once clients attain personal healing, they are generally better equipped to appropriately engage with others.

Unfortunately previous negative experiences with counseling can impact one's decision to seek out treatment again. Therapy isn't about walking into a room because of needing to be "fixed". Therapy is a collaborative approach that begin's with me creating a safe, comfortable, and non judgmental environment. I will always recognize the person before the behavior that we are working to change. My hope at the end of each session is to assist with enhancing your strengths to elicit long term change.

My hope for each client is that therapy sessions leave them with curiosities about themselves and others, and a feeling of empowerment and possibility. I believe that families, our environment, and the way that we've grown up continue to affect us throughout life. As an experiential therapist, one of the main goals I have with clients is to work towards congruence; the ability to genuinely express what you think and feel with others and with yourself. In session, I use a variety of mediums depending on client preference, including typical talk-therapy interventions and creative arts.
