Are you feeling depressed? Overwhelmed with life? Stuck? Do you feel like you aren't getting enough out of life? These are all common things we can go through.
Life is hard sometimes.
I want to congratulate you on even beginning the search for a therapist. Whether you have been to therapy before or not, it takes courage to admit you want help searching for fulfillment and understanding in life.
Therapy does not have to be a scary thing. I believe we all need therapy at times in our lives. Therapy can help us become more self aware and lead us to a better understanding of who we are and what we need.
Therapy can be an amazing tool. Where else can you express your worries, fears, thoughts and feelings without being judged? Where else can you go and feel 100% accepted? Therapy is not a place to get advice, but a place to explore yourself and have someone walking beside you as you do.

In our work together, we may delve into your past, look at the present as well as prepare for the future. I'm eclectic when it comes to approach. I utilize different approaches including but not limited to Psychodynamic, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as Solution Focused. Ultimately, I'm here for you and together we can find something that works for you!
I'm not originally from Pittsburgh, I grew up in Virginia. I went to the University of Rochester for undergrad where I studied Psychology and American Sign Language. I lived all over the United States working in various capacities with families, couples, children and adults. I moved to Pittsburgh for graduate school and decided to stay after I graduated. I attended Duquesne University for my Master's program in Marriage and Family Counseling. I have been in the field for more than 5 years.

Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.
