I've been working in the counseling field for over 21 years. I am a doctoral level Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Advanced Drug & Alcohol Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I treat a variety of disorders such as depression, anxiety and PTSD.
I have provided counseling in a variety of settings including addictions, veterans and persons who have experienced traumatic events such as First Responders (Fire, LEO, Dispatchers, and Healthcare).. I am a veteran of the U.S. Army with a total of 6 years service. I have come to understand a persons internal struggles with addictions, mental health and post traumatic stress based on my own experiences and my present and previous careers. I recognize that persons in certain professions and struggles want a clinician who understands their walk and trials.
