Hello

I am inspired to assist women in living balanced, joyful, successful, and authentic lives. 

My Story

As a woman and mother myself, I understand the complexity that arises when trying to support everyone around you while trying to find yourself.  Some days you feel as if you cannot get anything done and the pressures of everyday life are too overwhelming.  The anxiety can be debilitating and bring you to your knees.  You feel lost, confused, and frustrated.  I am here for you.  

I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh and my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from La Salle University.  I am trained to see clients' experiences from a systems perspective meaning we look at everything that influences you.  That could be your past and present relationships, life experiences, and pressures from society regarding what it means to be a woman or a mother.  After 18 years of working with individuals and families intensely in their homes and in an office setting, it is clear that each woman's struggle is unique. I support my clients throughout their healing with empathy, understanding and compassion.  I will listen as you tell me your story, and we will uncover insights that propel you forward and offer you more clarity.

With my clients I am very practical and down to earth.  In the first session we will discuss what is contributing to your anxiety and stress and get a better understanding of your background.  Throughout our time together we will use practical approaches that help you understand barriers to progress and make small changes to your thoughts and behaviors so you can experience more peace.   I pull from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy to find what works best for you. I am completing the certification process to obtain a Perinatal Mental Health certificate to continue my work with women in the perinatal and postpartum periods of life.  

While not exhaustive, I have experience in the following specialties:

  • Anxiety/Stress

  • ADHD

  • Life Transitions

  • Depression

  • Postpartum Anxiety/Depression

  • Self-Esteem

  • Parenting Struggles

  • Relationship concerns

  • Chronic Illness

  • Chronic Pain

With my help, you will be able to meet the struggles of your daily life with mindfulness and practical solutions.  When the anxiety lessens then space can open up for more positive and enlightening experiences to enter your life. I am passionate about joining your journey, exploring who you are, and identifying your goals and aspirations.  You are not alone.
