Therapist Spotlight


It takes courage and self-awareness to seek help and support, and by doing so you’ve taken the first step toward a more fulfilling and functional life. I am here to act as a guide as you begin your journey to transformation, healing, recovery, and self-discovery and exploration. I recognize the vulnerability that it takes to share one’s feelings and challenges and I hold space with sensitivity and honor. I became a therapist because I truly want to make a difference in other people’s lives. In our sessions, I will tailor my expertise, within evidenced-based practices, to best suit your personality, background, and worldview. I believe that everyone has the ability and strength to heal from within. I offer a unique background and set of skills due to personal and professional experiences that have shaped me to be the therapist and person that I am today. I grew up outside of Pittsburgh, PA, and I come from a hard-working family that values a strong work ethic along with treating others with the utmost dignity, knowing that one person is not of a higher status than another. I carry these principles close to my heart and convey them through my therapeutic practice.
How I work

There is a principle that I have held onto for as long as I can remember, and which I hold close to my heart. The principle is this: we are all equal and deserving no matter what class, status, or upbringing we come from. As a clinician, I like to consider not only how you operate as an individual, but also how you operate within the family, work/school, and community systems, which have shaped you into the person that you are today. I want to empower you to take up as much space as you need to feel your feelings. 
I have extensive experience working with others, whether it be the older adult, adult, or adolescent populations, through trauma-informed care. A gift that I hold is patience, a supportive presence, and the ability to sit with and be present with others that have had challenging experiences. I also have been drawn to certain modalities that I like to integrate into my therapy practice, such as the Relational Cultural Theory, Strengths Based Practice, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Attachment, and Mindfulness. I believe my strengths are my deep compassion, my gravitation toward advocacy for others, and a genuine and authentic disposition. The Mindfulness approach is one that I have personally found successful having practiced yoga for 12 years and adopted many of its principles, such as radical acceptance and diaphragmatic breathing. Having these tools accessible to me has changed and improved my life in moments when things have gotten tough.
