Though I have a limited schedule, and I am only able to meet with clients either through the Live Chat or the phone session formats, I am a very confident, very optimistic and very patient counselor licensed in Pennsylvania, with over 40 years of helping individuals, couples, families and parents. I've helped parents to assist extremely difficult children, both the young ones and the children who are now chronologically adults; I've helped families with conflicts that seem unbearable; I've helped couples with outrageous relational problems; and I've helped individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, substance abuse disorders and frustrations related to problems in reaching vocational, spiritual, relational hopes and dreams. In addition to using an eclectic approach that includes person-centered and solution-focused approaches as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for all clients in need, I use Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) as needed and requested to deal with trauma and upsetting memories, and I enjoy engaging clients who are interested in spirituality either in a form of existential therapy that integrates some of the works of Viktor Frankl and Soren Kierkegaard, a 12 step facilitation to encourage recovery in many areas of life, and/or a form of pastoral counseling for clients who desire to include specifics of their faith in how they make progress toward feeling better about their daily walk with God and/or their relationships and their thoughts about the future. I am also both confident and equipped to assist parents and grandparents with specialized parenting techniques to help children who have various emotional and behavioral concerns, including Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). For those with other specific needs, I am a Certified Advanced Alcohol & Drug Counselor (CAADC), having spent nearly 15 years treating individuals with 12 step facilitation, medication-assisted treatments and co-occurring disorders therapies, and I've worked for more than 10 years helping individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities as well as providing therapeutic support and training for foster and adoptive families. I look forward to speaking with you about your specific concerns.

My goal with every person I serve is to support them in achieving their ideal life, and to use every barrier they encounter as an opportunity to grow.

I have been a therapist for over 16 years. I received my master’s degree in counseling psychology from Seton Hall University, and my Bachelor of Science degree from York College of Pennsylvania. However, this is a career change for me. This change was brought about by a sudden disruption to my life. As a therapist I have experience in treating addictions, anxiety, depression, stress, grief, bipolar disorder, anger management, and more. I employ cognitive behavioral therapy, most of the time. However, depending on the client and their needs I may use short term solution focused therapy or ACT. What is important to me to is for you, the client, to reach your goals and lead a more fulfilling, satisfying life. Let me help you to become a better you.

I am a licensed therapist in the states of New Hampshire, Utah, and Pennsylvania, with 30 years of professional work experience. I have worked extensively with clients experiencing intense depression, stress and anxiety; addictions and other compulsions; trauma and abuse; intense grief and loss; issues related to meaning and purpose; and experiences that would be categorized as unusual or paranormal. At BetterHelp, I would like to limit my services to working with individuals who have had specific life experiences related to things that may not be easy to process - like anomalous, paranormal, and other unusual experiences. There might be apprehension about sharing these experiences with a health care professional, but I am here to help eliminate that apprehension. These types of experiences (like NDE) can be both powerful and enlightening, but also confusing and disturbing. If you have had these types of experiences, and would like to explore them in a safe space, please consider me. Taking steps to explore, process, and integrate these personal experiences takes courage, but can be very therapeutic and healing. I am here to support you in that process.

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a East Lansdowne counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A East Lansdowne licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in East Lansdowne, Pennsylvania can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

East Lansdowne has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey.

Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
