Great to meet you!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with my licensure being held in the state of Pennsylvania. My primary areas of interest include working with people who have experienced trauma as well as those who have difficulty with boundary setting in various areas of their life.I have a wealth of knowledge working with those who have experienced various forms of abuse, issues with anger management, work-life balance, self-esteem concerns, parent-child relational issues, anxiety, grief, and depression.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My approach to counseling can be described as warm, encouraging, yet challenging. I ascribed to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I am trained in the empirically researched and highly acclaimed EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) technique which I use to help my clients process and heal from various forms of trauma. I also use a motivational coaching approach as needed to address the unique concerns of each client.

What you can expect from our first session

I am able to help others identify how their life experience has made them resilient and prepared for their next phase of life, while giving them the confidence to surmount anything they may be working through in the moment.
