About me

I am licensed in Pennsylvania with 3 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, & depression. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. I work with various approaches and theories such as psychodynamic approaches, internal family systems, Gestalt therapy, solution focused therapy, and EMDR for trauma, anxiety, phobias, and more. My passion is finding the core of the issue and working to resolve it so that you feel better for good, not just for a little bit until the symptoms come back. I believe we all hold the solutions to our problems and therapy is meant to help us discover what those solutions are and to use them!

Prior to being a therapist, I worked for over a decade as a paramedic and before that I was a high school band director (only for a few years). I have a vast array of experiences and perspectives that are helpful for my clients to gain insight into their own experiences. I live in western PA and I have a sweet, lovable, and protective dog named Miss Marylin. I enjoy theater, music, reading, and talking with friends in my free time.

If you feel we might be a good fit, I’d love to talk to you and help get you to your goal!
