Unlike individual therapy sessions, group therapy offers participants the opportunity to interact with others with similar issues in a safe, supportive environment. Participants can try out new behaviors, role play, and engage with others in not only receiving valuable feedback and insight from other group members, but also in giving it.

I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Asbury College (now University), a conservative Christian college.  In 1990, I obtained my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Slippery Rock University.  Although I have worked as a case manager then administrator in foster care, Mobile Therapist, Family Therapist, Behavior Specialist Consultant, was in private practice – including being a consultant/contractor for a local school district – my love is in outpatient therapy.  I have been serving in that capacity with Glade Run Lutheran Services for over 15 years.  During the past 10+ years of that time, I have also been a co-facilitator for Dialectical Behavior Therapy groups.

Although eclectic in my approach to counseling, addressing the needs of the client in this respect, I generally use Cognitive Behavior therapy, and use a Christian-based approach when clients are open to that.  I do not see the role of a therapist as telling you what to do to “fix” your problems.  Rather, I endeavor to help you gain insight into your life, look at things from different perspectives, identify and accept responsibility for those areas over which you have (or can develop) control, form realistic future goals, and to give you the tools and skills to use to get through and improve your life day by day.

I strongly believe that the real work in therapy goes on outside the counseling office.  If you are open to critically examining your life as it is, willing to accept responsibility to change mind-sets and behaviors that are not working for you, and do the difficult, sometimes painful work involved in change, I believe we can help you develop a life worth living.
