I am licensed in Pennsylvania with 3 years of professional counseling experience. As an NBCC-certified Licensed Professional Counselor, I help clients with presenting problems such as anxiety, mood and personality disorders, behavioral disorders, relationship dynamics and boundary-setting, self-esteem and self-advocacy, parenting, and stress management. I have worked with individuals of all ages throughout my counseling career, which has helped build my skill set immensely. Ethics are a priority in my practice as a counselor; therefore, I believe that a client-driven, individualized approach is most effective. I believe that you are the expert on your story and that you possess many strengths we can utilize to reach your goals.
I enjoy tailoring my approach to each client’s individual needs, so no two clients will receive the exact same course of treatment. I take pride in my ability to connect with clients on a personal level and have received positive feedback from many that they feel comfortable, supported, and empowered during their sessions. My goal is to create a safe environment where clients can work through their presenting problems while also being challenged to explore new coping strategies, communication skills, and perspectives. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
