Learning about ourselves is a life-long process. When life’s challenges occur, these can create moments of significant self-discovery and growth. Often, we can find challenges in work, relationships, friendships, and life transitions. These challenges can cause significant anxiety, stress, and uncertainty. Additionally, when have difficulty navigating these challenges it can lead to a feeling of being stuck or unsure what to do next. Sometimes we can find ourselves stuck in the present due to past difficulties. In these moments, therapy can be helpful and beneficial for you to identify how you became stuck and how we can move forward with a life worth living.
I believe that all humans are deserving of compassion and the freedom to be themselves and live a meaningful and enriching life of their own making. My goal is to help those who come see me to identify barriers that are preventing them from living that meaningful life and to help them work towards it. Finally, I specialize in working with women’s and men’s issues and I believe in an accepting approach with validation to help individuals have a more authentic sense of self while addressing any difficulties that may be hindering them from the life they desire.
I am trained in numerous methods and I have a large toolbox of skills and strategies. When you come to see me, I mindfully identify strategies that best suits your needs and goals. I only use evidence-based practices and pride myself in following the newest and strongest research within the field. Finally, I approach therapy with a non-judgmental attitude and treat everyone with compassion and understanding so that therapy is a warm and welcoming environment where you feel safe to work on challenging aspects of your life.

Education / Training
I received my Doctor of Psychology from the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology at Widener University in Pennsylvania. This highly rigorous program is the longest running doctorate of clinical psychology program in the United States. As an integrated program, educational and real-world training elements include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, psychodynamic framework, humanistic theories, and others.
Additionally, I received my Master’s in Education from Widener University where I specialized in intimacy and relationship issues and disorders. The intimacy program at Widener is one of the few accredited intimacy-based programs in the United States. Its aim is to train individuals to work with a myriad of relationship and intimacy issues, relationship difficulties, and other sensitive issues related to coupling and relationships. It focuses on evidence-based practices and the latest research.
