About me

My Philosophy

I believe that the ability to heal is innate. The process of therapy allows us to connect with this deep ability to heal ourselves. The connection between the therapist and the patient is the most important aspect of the healing process. Therefore it is essential to find a therapist with whom you are comfortable.  The therapy process is different for each patient, but what is universal is that the therapist is a supporter, educator, confidant, and objective listener.  During therapy I utilize principles of mindfulness training and cognitive therapy. I teach patients skills and ways of thinking that help to minimize their suffering and to encourage new ways of examining their problems. For children and adolescents I also use play and art therapy techniques to help find more creative and expressive paths to healing.

My Practice

My psychotherapy private practice is located in Dublin, PA.  I provide individual, family, couples, and group therapy. Therapy is provided to children, adolescents, and adults for anxiety, depression, family, grief and loss, health/medical, and other life or mental health struggles.  I try my best to be flexible for working hours and school schedules. I offer virtual as well as in person sessions, as well as evening and weekend availability.
