Children, Adolescents, Adults, and Families
In Person and Telehealth
Where do you go to get support when life feels like a struggle and smiling is hard? …When you are worried about your child? …When peacefulness feels like a thing of the past? Whether you are an individual or a family seeking a more harmonious home environment, I strive to create a safe place for healing and growing. Some modalities I use to assist you in progressing toward your goals are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Play Therapy, Mindfulness & Art Therapy. You and I work together from a holistic and growth mindset perspective, meaning we look at all the parts of your life and how they affect you and aim for growth, not perfection. We work on YOUR goals at a pace comfortable to you! I believe therapy should feel like a value add on your life journey. This is your time to address what’s not working, while feeling
respected, safe, and heard. If you are looking to find more peace and purpose in your life, I can help.
I am a Licensed Social Worker, dedicated to assisting others in their pursuit of a more fulfilling life. Both my Bachelor’s in Psychology (1995) and Master’s of Social Work (1998), were earned from the University of Pittsburgh. Since that time, I have worked in a variety of settings with a variety of clients: children, teens, and adults in research, outpatient mental health, residential treatment and independent living programs. Currently, I work with children, teens, and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD,
Autism, family system unrest, couple’s conflicts, and parenting difficulties. I provide parent-coaching and family therapy for those folks wishing to achieve a more harmonious home environment.
When not at work, I enjoy catching up with friends, hearing my kids laugh, gardening, walks with my husband and dog, and volunteering for a local substance prevention coalition.
