Welcome! As a therapist I strive to build a warm, trusting therapeutic environment to help each client reach their own personal goals. I am a licensed therapist in the state of Pennsylvania with years of experience in helping clients with a variety of concerns.
I believe each individual has their own unique set of strengths and that therapy can help identify and develop those. As a therapist I understand that an individual's life challenges are personal and can often feel overwhelming. My goal is to help clients develop a "tool kit" of skills and strategies they can use to help manage those challenges.
Improving relationships is something I am passionate about and communication is often key to this improvement. I help my clients develop skills to effectively communicate their wants and needs and also to actively listen to the wants and needs of others. These skills help improve and strengthen life's relationships.
I look forward to hearing from you and working with you as you take the next step toward positive life changes.
Hi! Everyone has their struggles. It's my hope to be able to work collaboratively to help find the strength you already had within yourself to grow to your fullest potential and work through some of life's challenges. Building rapport is essential. I enjoy working with a diverse population. I have worked extensively with young children, preteens, teens, and parents for the past 8 years. I also have experience helping adults suffering from anxiety, depression, and trauma.
My areas of specialty include: Trauma and sexual abuse, depression, anxiety, child & family relational issues, domestic violence, trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, children's behavioral issues, and play therapy for children.
I provide a warm and inviting space for both children and adults. You can find a homelike space that provides a comforting environment for you to work through life's challenges. Children can also find a playful space that allows them to express themselves in a safe and relaxing playroom.
I look forward to hearing from you and being able to help you make mindful changes to a positive recovery.
Hello and Welcome! I am so glad that you are considering taking a step forward on a journey of introspection, growth, and healing for yourself and your relationships. I believe there are times in life in which everyone needs help. I recognize reaching out is not always an easy step. I offer a safe and comfortable environment for you to be yourself without judgement. I have been in the helping profession for over 13 years, working with children/teens, adults, and families.
I completed my education through Millersville University and Liberty University. I am licensed in the state of PA. I consider myself an eclectic therapist, pulling from a variety of models of therapy that best helps you feel successful and meet your goals. Some of these models include, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Dialectical Behavioral therapy, person-centered, and attachment therapy. I specialize in working with individuals who experience depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief and loss, spiritual concerns, relationship stressors, and other traumas. I have advance training in EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) which assists you in reprograming negative cognitions and traumatic memories to significantly reduce symptoms associated with PTSD and other trauma disorders.
In working alongside families, I am certified in ESFT (Ecosystemic Structural Family Therapy). This model of treatment focuses on helping families identify their negative patterns of interacting with one another and coaching the family how to interrupt these patterns to create, new healthy relationships. I strongly believe success in having a healthier family starts with giving every family member an opportunity to have an equal voice. I would like to assist in helping your family learn how to communicate and listen to one another more effectively
Whatever your challenges are, I want to work collaboratively with you to help you succeed in living your best life and having the best relationships.

Hello! There are times in everyone’s life that things can be overwhelming, exhausting, frustrating and sometimes unbearable or hopeless. If you’re here, you’re already considering change and are taking some brave steps toward that. I know how hard and how much courage starting that journey of self-discovery and wellness can be. For those I have the honor of joining on their journey, I will help walk alongside you through the “mud” of life and help you build your life worth living.
My passion is working with adolescents and adults to help them understand themselves more fully, wholeheartedly and bravely. Throughout your journey I will walk alongside you and we will explore how your past life experiences have impacted you. My strengths lie in trauma, relationships and grief and loss.
I received my Masters of Clinical Psychology from Millersville University and am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Pennsylvania. My work over the years has included child/adolescent and adult therapy with high conflict families, mood disorders, relationships and trauma. I have worked with populations from age 5 through adulthood, in individual, group, partial, inpatient, residential and family therapy settings. My treatment focus has supported clients and families working to build emotional intelligence, communication skills, coping strategies to mitigate stressors and improve relational dynamics. In addition to this, I have received advanced training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT-Informed), Collaborative Law, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, TEAM CBT, Therapeutic Crisis Intervention and Sanctuary Model.
Hi! My goal as a clinician is to build a warm, safe, and trusting relationship to allow individuals, couples, and families space to grow into their fullest potential. I view counseling as an opportunity to identify and build on strengths, with a focus on the whole person: mind, body, and spirit; rather than as a diagnosis or a set of symptoms. I have over 20 years of experience working with people of all ages, with a variety of issues and concerns. I believe that everyone has the potential for health and happiness; my role is to accompany you on that journey.
I am trained to utilize expressive therapies in conjunction with talk therapy to help people find ways to better articulate their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. As a Registered Play Therapy - Supervisor (RPT-S), I have extensive experience utilizing play and sand therapies to address numerous life issues such as trauma, anxiety, and depression.
I completed my PhD at Loyola University of Maryland. My studies helped me to integrate my experience with a strong theoretical orientation in wellness. If you are interested in becoming more mindful and self-compassionate, and would like to learn ways to live a full, purposeful, and joyful life, please contact me. I would love to help you on that path.
Hello! Do you find that you are struggling to find ways to communicate with your child? Do you feel that you just haven’t found a therapist that “clicks” with your child’s and your family’s needs? Or perhaps that daily stress just seems to put a strain on your emotional health? If this sounds too familiar, you might just be in the right place
As a marriage and family therapist, I believe in the importance of relationships and healthy communication. I work on building a friendly, fun, trusting atmosphere with the children, teens, and families that I work with, where you can be creative and uninhibited. I love to play, laugh, and joke with you, as I find that real emotional healing happens when we can be naturally ourselves and feel comfortable in growing and learning how to express ourselves more genuinely.
My approach to therapy is integrative and emotion focused. I have a license in Marriage and Family Therapy and an M.A. in Counseling from Messiah College. I have experience working with all ages and backgrounds and I am most passionate about helping families, teenagers, adolescents and children. I have spent about 6 years working directly in schools and in homes. I have found that I am able to get through to many teens and adolescents who have previously not been very engaged in therapy, and I have experience in helping individuals work through family relational problems, anxiety, depression, ADHD, ODD, trauma, sexual abuse, and Mood Disorders.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you develop happier relationships!
Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here! Life can become overwhelming and at times lead us to feeling lost, drained and hopeless. I believe that self-care is a huge component to navigating life’s stressors. My approach as a therapist is to support you in identifying your strengths and building upon them to find a sense of direction, hope and peace. I am a Licensed Therapist in the state of Pennsylvania and a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. I enjoy helping clients develop skills for achieving goals of change and growth and guide you through this process collaboratively.
I most commonly utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, while adopting other evidenced- based approaches and emphasizing the importance of both self-care and healthy relationships. I specialize in helping individuals with overall stress, anxiety, relationship stressors, disordered eating, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Whatever life has thrown your way, I am here to let you know you don’t have to face it alone
I look forward to meeting you and working with you!
Hello! I strive to establish a welcoming and trusting connection with individuals and families searching for solutions to daily life challenges. I see counseling as a team effort between every unique client and clinician to create goals which treat the whole person, strengthening personal and social skills. I have years of experience in a variety of outpatient settings working with children/adolescents, adults, and families. Each person can benefit from counseling, including the therapist, and I am eager to learn your story so we can create healthy, lasting changes.
I utilize a variety of therapies which focus on addressing thoughts and behaviors together,
typically through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as well as Motivational Interviewing
(MI) strategies to better determine the best course of counseling for individuals experiencing
anxiety, depression, grief and loss, previous trauma, and behavioral challenges. My background
in music has also allowed me to join aspects of artistic expression to therapeutic practices,
supporting a client’s ability to link emotions and internal dialogue to songs, lyrics, and other
forms of art. Additionally, I attempt to weave humor into my therapy as I believe therapy should
be a positive experience that can be an enjoyable part of the week for everyone.
I hold a license in Professional Counseling in Pennsylvania, am recognized as a Nationally
Board Certified Counselor, and have recently gained my Educational Specialist I certificate for
school guidance. I completed my education at Messiah University, earning an MA degree in
Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in School
Counseling. My studies have allowed me to gain a broad understanding of the needs presented
by each client and student, and I thrive on the successes of every individual I can serve.
