About me

I have a M.A. in Clinical Psychology. I am dually licensed as a Professional Counselor and a Behavior Specialist in Pennsylvania, and licensed as a Masters Limited License Psychologist in Michigan. I have a decade long career working in the field of mental health, and in that time have worked in outpatient, community, and inpatient settings. I specialize in working with adults seeking treatment for substance use problems, mental health disorders, or coping with chronic pain, as well as children and adolescents with mental and behavioral health needs, and parents needing help with raising children with intellectual or developmental disabilities or behavioral health problems.

I enjoy helping others and providing clients with the opportunity to explore different coping strategies to find out what works best for them. I rely on empirically supported treatments and a welcoming, empathetic style, while making every effort to meet my clients where they are and guide them along the path of recovery to where they want to be.

I am experienced in providing Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). All three treatments fall within the cognitive-behavioral branch of treatment, and are skills-based interventions. CBT explores the relationship between thoughts (cognitions), emotions, and behaviors, and how they affect each other. DBT incorporates mindfulness, of being aware of your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, and beliefs in order to effectively use coping skills when needed. ABA is a behavior intervention therapy in which antecedents, behaviors, consequences, and reinforcers are monitored in order to determine the function of the behaviors displayed in individuals who may not be able to communicate well for themselves, and then uses behavior therapy in order to orchestrate positive life changes. Although ABA is not preferred through the medium of telehealth, I am able to incorporate some aspects of it, preferably for clients who have experience with ABA, and require a refresher on skills already learned.
