Professional statement

My Bachelor of Arts degree is in Sociology, and my Master of Arts is in Clinical Counseling in Psychology from La Salle University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Additionally, I have a Certification in Gerontology from Gwynedd Mercy University in Pennsylvania.

I am trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy from the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work with a Certificate of Training in Community Care.

I have facilitated and developed Dialectical Behavioral Skills Groups in person and telehealth for Penn Foundation Behavioral Services in Sellersville, Pennsylvania, and Collaborative Care at Harleysville, Pennsylvania, for mood disorders and coping skills for health and wellness goals.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Pennsylvania and Professional Counselor of Mental Health (PCMH) in Delaware, I provide personal telehealth psychotherapy to individuals and groups faced with challenges including, but not limited to, mood disorders, bipolar, depression, anxiety, parenting, ADHD, behavioral issues, self-esteem, grief and loss, relationship issues, and life transitions.


Message to clients

When it comes to treatment, you have individual choices, insights, and beliefs for discussion in therapy. There are many paths to recovery, depending on what is suitable for you.

We will work collaboratively to build upon your strengths and find solutions. Please feel free to call me and ask any questions about therapy so you can embrace change and your health and wellness goals.

Transitions are challenging – I understand. Your first call to me is the beginning of our journey. Our emotions help us learn to change our behaviors. Learning to be present helps us take action in the moment where we can be successful in being our best selves.

I want to help you live your life with insight, acceptance, and positive coping skills for your health and wellness.
