I believe that every person, no matter their circumstances or struggles, has a valiant mind. Therefore, I believe that each of my clients are the experts of their own life and that my job is to meet each client wherever they currently are on their journey and to walk alongside them in order to help facilitate growth and change. In 2004, I graduated from Chatham University with a Masters in Counseling Psychology and have since gained extensive experience in the treatment of adult and childhood psychological and neurobehavioral disorders. My sessions predominantly use cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, where I help my clients to understand how their thoughts affect their feelings and behaviors. I also use other psychotherapy techniques that provide comprehensive perspectives to my clients and enhance mind, body such as positive psychology, existentialist philosophy, and mindfulness meditation. My goal is to help my clients broaden their awareness, challenge problematic patterns, learn healthy coping skills, live mindfully and confidently, and seek their unique version of joy. Above all, I am committed to creating therapeutic relationships that are built on trust, respect, transparency, empathy, honesty, and equality, and I always counsel from a nonjudgmental place of understanding and compassion.
