About me

I'm a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and licensed behavioral specialist (LBS) in Pa. I've graduated with my Ph.d from Robert Morris University focusing on improving quality of life for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). I received my masters in clinical counseling from Waynesburg University. I've worked with all ages from preschool, school age , young adults and adults. I enjoy supporting individuals transition from childhood to adulthood. I've work directly with coaching parents with behavioral modification with children. In addition, I have worked with adults with history of trauma from abuse/neglect/ptsd.

My counseling style is client centered. I believe everyone has a story to be told and will help you write it. I am grounded in humanistic counseling and pulls from other techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy or dialectical behavioral therapy. I use creative techniques in order to help express oneself. By working together we will create your unique story and develop a healthy future.

I'm committed to working with my clients. I will listen, empower, and support you on your personal journey.

I offer afternoon/lunch time sessions at this time only.
