Where the Focus is Only on Your Best Self

Many years ago, I was drawn to this field by a strong desire to guide others on a journey of self-exploration and transformation. While each person seeks counseling for their own unique reasons, the pursuit of growth is always fundamental.

I believe that people sometimes carry the weight of unhealed wounds, hindering their ability to reach their full potential. Untreated trauma, loss, and emotional exhaustion can manifest in numerous destructive ways.

In my practice, I take the time to discover what my clients cherish, yearn for, and may feel undeserving of. Together, we explore the origins of counterproductive thoughts and behaviors with the goal of transforming them and freeing you to pursue your life's endeavors.

My therapeutic style is conversational, blending practicality, present focus, and experiential techniques. Emphasizing the strengths, life experiences, and courage of each individual, I guide them on a journey of self-development and personal growth. I draw from a variety of methodologies, tailored to each person, couple, or family.

I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Person-Centered Therapy. The foundation of my practice is the therapeutic relationship; establishing trust is essential for success, and I am committed to creating a warm, supportive atmosphere for relaxation and healing.

I earned a Master's Degree in Professional Counseling from Carlow University in Pittsburgh in 2007 and have dedicated close to two decades to helping relationships. My experience spans private practice, community, and outpatient settings. In 2009, I became licensed as a Professional Counselor (LPC) in Pennsylvania.

Everything can be taken from a man or woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose ones attitude in any given set of circumstances , to choose ones own way.
