In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?
As a child at the age of 6 years old. I grew up with a fear of vomiting and sever separation anxiety. I also come from a divorced household which resulted in a blended family. My family dynamics and overcoming struggles had lead me down this path of wanting to help others navigate similar challenges in their own lives. This shaped my experience as a therapist growing up with a large level of support from my parents, community and friends as well as learning coping skills from talking to my own therapist as a child, which I can pass on to my own clients who also suffer from their own mental health challenges. This provides me with lens on how to overcome anxiety and I can truly be empathic and understanding, which helps me build connections with my clients in order to help them make a positive change in their life.
What does a first session with you look like?
In a first session you can expect me to always go over an outline of what to expect which includes. -Going over initial paperwork (HIPPA, Fee, communication with me etc) -Questions around what prompted the client to make the appointment, such as why therapy now? What is the problem you are coming in for? How long as this problem been going on for? What works? What doesn't work? What have you tried? -depending if you are a couple or not I will start to develop a timeline of the relationship and or family history if there is enough time. -scheduling and payment at the end of the session.
What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?
I think my clients would say that I am warm but also direct in my therapy approach. I will provide you with direction, guidance and also want to make my clients feel the most comfortable with me.

After graduating from Thomas Jefferson University as a Couple and Family therapist in 2015 where I worked for several years as an individual and couples therapist at Council for Relationship. Specializing in young adults and couples struggling with life transitions, depression and anxiety. Then for the last 6 years prior to opening up my private practice I worked as a Family based in home therapist at Child Guidance Resource Center. As a family therapist I worked with parents and children/teens in their home, school and community to help support positive relationships and reduce anxiety, depression and behavioral concerns. In my private practice I currently specialize in promoting connections between people working with relationship conflicts, I am hear to help people, couples and families co- discover the unhealthy patterns of interacting that may be so engraved in their lives. I will teach you how to interact with one another in a healthy way, which will result in a reduction of unwanted symptoms such as anxiety, OCD, depression and an increase in connection and understanding of one another. Being able to foster a nurtured & safe environment for people who are struggling and feel helpless is my number one goal as a therapist!
