In a world where our own thoughts, experiences and interactions with the world
can result in strengthening or injuring, at times we may find ourselves struggling. But, every person possesses within what is needed to heal and become stronger.

As a therapist, I am honored and blessed to be able to walk the journey alongside others. A Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I received my graduate degree at the University of Pittsburgh. Through education, training and experience, I have developed a practice secure in addressing anxiety, depression, traumatic stress disorders, mood disorders, grief and loss, and relationship discord, including family and couple’s therapy.

I draw from many therapeutic models, such as Cognitive Behavioral, Internal
Family Systems, Trauma Focused, Empowerment, Couple’s, Family and Strength
Based Therapies. When working with children, whether to cultivate attachment,
better manage emotions or healing from past trauma, parents and other natural
supports are the key components, in concert with Play, Art and Bibliographic
Therapies, to realize success. Last year I completed the necessary basic training in EMDR and am currently working towards certification. I believe in continuing educational growth and skill sets to provide effective, comprehensive client driven therapy.

Rene Descartes (French philosopher from the 1600’s) is known best for saying, “I think, therefore I am”.  I believe our inner thoughts and feelings are the lens we view ourselves, our world, and shape our perceptions.  Today’s lives are so overscheduled, and busy, and at times life can become unmanageable.  I hope to be present with individuals, and to create an understanding, calm, environment, to explore where someone is, where they want to be, and the inconsistencies holding them back, and causing imbalance in life.

My mental health career began with Wraparound Services, where I worked with children and their families who had the diagnoses of:  Autism, intellectual disabilities, Reactive Attachment Disorder, ODD and ADHD.  I worked with these children and families in their homes, schools and within their community.  I also moderated social groups such as:   anxiety, depression anger management and yoga and worked several summers in the Summer Therapeutic Camps (STAP).  After the completion of my Masters in Mental Health Counseling at Geneva College, I worked in addictions and recovery, with individuals who were in all in different places with their substance use and recovery.  In the addictions field I performed evaluations, individual counseling and Intensive outpatient group sessions within the outpatient setting.  I have also worked in a residential facility, with individuals with chronic mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia, Bipolar or Autism.  The individuals in this setting need support to maintain a routine with activities of daily living and to attain life skills in order to live their lives to their fullest potential.

I am constantly looking at what goals individuals are working towards, where they are, and what obstacles or maladaptive behaviors are holding them back.  Using Motivational Interviewing, I help individuals set realistic goals and connect them with community resources to support the shaping of new behaviors.  I also have used techniques of cognitive behavior therapy to reshape perceptions and improve the individual’s outlook on a situation.  With individuals with chronic mental illness, I have used reality therapy to help them live fuller lives, to be more grounded and connected, and to distingush what is a delusion, and what is real.  Finally, when working with children with developmental delays, such as Autism, and behavior diagnoses, I would use play therapy, social stories, and role playing.

I have been very fortunate to have so many diverse experiences from working with preschoolers to geriatric adults in their 80’s, and with a wide range of diagnoses and life circumstances.   Additionally, I have had the privilege of so many individuals sharing their lives and inner thoughts with me, and joining them on their journey to make positive changes to move forward in their lives.
