We all encounter moments in our lives when things can feel heavy, confusing and overwhelming. As a Strengths Based and Solutions Focused therapist, my aim is to help you develop the tools necessary to meet your goals and live the kind of life you envision for yourself. I will accompany you in developing new insight and creating a personal narrative that feels comforting and encouraging. I believe that therapy is a collaborative journey, one where your own internal resources and my clinical expertise join to make way for a better today and tomorrow.

I received my Masters Degree in Social Work from Temple University in 2012, and have 10 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have had extensive training in both Individual and Family Therapy. My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to: depression, anxiety, adjustment, family conflict, parenting, grief and loss, self-esteem, organization, and trauma.
