My experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, mental health counseling. I have experience treating numerous mental health conditions & work with people of all ages. Specializations include anxiety, depression, children & adolescents, family conflict, trauma, & more. I believe in growth, change, and focusing on individual strengths. Individual, family, & couples counseling sessions are available.
My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. I achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, using a variety of therapeutic methods, and working on individual treatment goals.
I promise to be there for you throughout your personal journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
When people are experiencing stress, unhappiness, and conflict they often feel like there is no hope. I help individuals work on identifying and processing, triggers, coping with their pain, and moving forward to reach their life goals. I help children, adults, and families focus on their strengths to be able to live their best lives.
Individuals may need a variety of ways to achieve this. Treatment approaches I focus on include Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused CBT, EMDR, Trauma Art Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Behavioral Therapy. I am gaining education in Play Therapy and hope to be able to provide that service to individuals soon.
My education background includes a M.Ed. in Counseling from Penn State University, an MA in Sociology from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and a BA in Sociology from Berea College. I have been working in the mental health field in various capacities since 2000. I look forward to helping you in overcoming your challenges and moving forward in your life.
