Each client I work with is different, as is the process of coming up with therapy goals. Some people come to treatment knowing exactly what they are looking for, while others are less certain. I work individually with each person to identify where struggles are, what might be contributing, and the best way to approach the problem from a realistic standpoint.
I am most excited that mental health is starting to become a topic of regular conversation. For so long there has been a stigma surrounding mental illness, seeking therapy of any sort, or talking about struggles. I feel optimistic about the recent shift and the promotion of asking for help and bettering one's self from the inside out.
When I am first meeting with someone I like to start off with a basic conversation what's bringing them to therapy, what their life looks like on a day-to-day basis, and any major life events from the past. Depending on what is shared, I try to develop a basic outline of what therapy might look like and what some of the goals of working together will be.

I am a licensed therapist in Pennsylvania with specializations in addiction and trauma. I have been working in the field since 2012 following my graduation from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Throughout my career I have worked with clients experiencing a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and addictions. My therapeutic approach combines a number of cognitive based approaches with a humanistic, person-centered perspective. Specifically, I combine elements of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy. I believe in a dynamic, flexible approach where I can work collaboratively with my clients.
