Regain authorship of you.
My approach through talk therapy is person centered, holding respect for both your emotions and your moments of deep thought. As a therapist, I tend to think like an artist; if the logical side of our brain gives structure with clear lines, then our emotions are what paint inside with richness. My style of therapy is about respecting the unified picture of your identity, even if you are at odds with yourself, or if you struggle to love what you have to work with. We are all works in progress. My role is all about supporting you as its author and artist.
If you've never had therapy before, I look at it as a space where you can speak unfiltered. There are times where therapy is about letting yourself feel your emotions without the pressure of judgment or criticism. Other times, it is the space for you to witness yourself say things you ordinarily couldn't risk. Ultimately, it is your choice on how to use the space best to fit your needs.
I maintain my license in Pennsylvania as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), and hold a Masters of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from Kutztown University, where I also completed my Bachelor's of Science degree in Psychology.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and for the foreseeable future, all of my sessions are conducted through telehealth, powered by SimplePractice. This software suite works on any personal computer with a webcam and microphone, as well as both iOS and Android devices. Access through Google Chrome is also supported.
You're welcome to contact me by email or phone (text works too!) for more information on session/timeslot availability.
I currently hold my clinical hours from Monday-Thursday, starting at 10 AM, and concluding at 9 PM. If you are looking for a faster response, mornings and mid-afternoons work best!
