I believe that by working collaboratively, my clients have the capacity to create long-lasting positive change. I pay close attention to patterns and look to understand a person’s full story before examining the “issue” that’s bringing my client into therapy. My theoretical perspective includes relational, systems-based approaches to therapy, allowing me to determine the best fit for my client. I specialize in helping individuals, couples, and families of diverse populations who are experiencing a broad range of problems. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). I completed my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Fairfield University (a COAMFTE accredited program) and earned my Bachelor’s degree from Pennsylvania State University.
My style is active, collaborative, empathetic, and non-judgmental. I believe that once the therapeutic relationship has been built, space is created that allows for learning, understanding, and change. I am a certified Prepare-Enrich counselor with premarital counseling experience.
