Living life, relating to others, adapting to changing circumstances in a changing world, understanding our needs and desires, communicating those needs and desires to others: these are undertakings that require a degree of self-awareness, self-understanding, and insight into what drives us. It is my hope that I can be of some assistance in your process of self-discovery and self-acceptance. When meeting with me, you will receive friendly, compassionate, and non-judgmental support as you do the work of self-exploration, self-reflection, and reintegration of dissociated or fragmented parts of yourself and/or your experiences so that you may undergo a healing process. You will also receive practical suggestions of ways to cope with difficult emotions as they arise throughout the process. I endeavor to create a safe, sacred space for these experiences to occur as well as to ask questions, provide perspective, and make suggestions at times to encourage action or change.
I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania with over a decade of experience helping individuals cope with parenting and relationship problems, stress, and a variety of mood and emotional difficulties. I employ an integrative and phenomenological approach to psychotherapy that includes interventions from a variety of therapeutic approaches, including person-centered, biopsychosocial, family systems, CBT/DBT, mindfulness, and trauma-informed among others. I look forward to meeting with you and seeing how we can work together to help you attain the healing, growth, and fulfilling life you truly deserve.
