What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?
I trust that you are the expert on you. I want to ensure that you feel safe in the space we share & that my role is to care for you, not to fix you. I see you as a person, a whole human being--not as a "problem to be fixed." I believe in walking alongside you, & I trust that your whole & resilient self will lead you toward healing. This doesn't mean that I leave you out there to wander alone--I will be there with you, to witness you, to validate you, & to help clear a path through the emotional muck & mire that might be getting in your way.
What does a first session with you look like?
Like most new relationships, ours will begin with curiosity. I am interested in you, so will ask some pretty basic questions, such as what brings you to therapy now? What are your hopes & areas of growth? How do you envision your healing & wellness journey? What does healing & wellness look like for you? And, of course, I invite you to ask me questions, too!

I am a Pennsylvania-licensed professional and nationally certified counselor (LPC, NCC). I have worked with diverse populations that include children, teens, adults, and families in community behavioral health, and adults (18+) in group practice. I have also worked alongside survivors of trauma, co-creating safe spaces and trusting relationships, while bearing witness to their stories, healing, and thriving. I focus not on asking, “What is wrong?” but on “What has happened?” I am inclusive and open to collaborating with folks of all identities and have an especial interest in holding space with members of ethnic diasporas. Currently I offer individual mental health counseling to adults who find themselves struggling with change and transition. Life shifts, however big or small, can bring up a lot of overwhelming thoughts, feelings, and parts of self. By empowering folks to author and (re)claim control of their own narratives, they’ll start to recognize, identify, and utilize their internal capacities and strengths to live their fullest lives. This process can mean learning to name big emotions and understanding how they live in the body; reducing negative self talk and rebuilding self-esteem; challenging negative core beliefs and being guided by self compassion rather than self sabotage; and moving through stuckness to resilience and thriving. Before I became a therapist, I spent 20+ years as a development editor studying, exploring, and shaping content in higher educational publishing, but more important, learning from and being in community with others. To keep this core value continuously engaged, I volunteered and mentored. During this time, I found myself chronically negotiating, rather than traveling, the path toward my true north. So, one day, I did just that—I traveled the path—and all at the midpoint of my life. I eventually earned my MA in clinical mental health counseling, completed my post-graduate supervised clinical experience, and obtained my licensure and certification to become a licensed professional counselor. I have never felt more aligned. It is because of this lived experience that I find myself drawn to those who are also at a point of transition in their lives and are seeking someone to walk alongside them.
