From a young age, I knew I wanted to be a psychotherapist. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Villanova University and a Master of Social Work degree from Boston University. I find my work incredibly rewarding and feel privileged to be invited into client's lives to help facilitate personal growth and a more satisfying life.
I have a warm, empathic, interactive, and down-to-earth style that helps clients feel comfortable, supported, and understood. Creating a trusting relationship and providing a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment where clients can express themselves and explore their personal challenges is of great importance to me, as it is through a strong therapeutic relationship that growth and change for clients can occur.
I work with adolescents, adults, couples and families. I have over 12 years of experience and have worked in medical, school, and outpatient settings. I view our work together as a partnership and will work with you to explore your personal challenges, discover and harness your strengths and resources, and set and achieve satisfying goals. I am active in sessions, asking probing questions and providing practical feedback. I utilize a range of treatment approaches tailored to the specific needs and personal style of each client. Typically, my approach is a combination of cognitive-behavioral (CBT), psychodynamic/insight-oriented, mind/body, family systems, and dialectical behavior (DBT) therapies.
