    Are you struggling with managing stress or the symptoms of anxiety or depression? Are you exhausted trying to find balance among the many roles you must play day-to-day and simultaneously be more present in your life? You deserve to stop “going through the motions,” and you deserve to experience more joy in your life.

    As your therapist, my goal is to help you navigate through life with increased hope and resiliency, as you develop the tools to better manage your symptoms and maintain wellness. I enjoy helping clients build new patterns and insights that help to restore balance and connection to their lives. I also firmly believe that success in therapy is about the relationship you form with your therapist. You are the expert on your life, and my job is to listen and partner with you to uncover your strengths and what makes you. My goal is to provide you with a non-judgmental, collaborative space that meets you where you currently are, in order to help you achieve your goals for wellness as you heal and grow.

    My primary therapeutic approach is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), as I have received extensive training in this area, but I do not believe there is a one-size approach to therapy. Based on your goals and presenting symptoms and challenges, we will work together to determine the course and pace of treatment. I am skilled in incorporating a variety of other therapeutic techniques including dialectical behavior theory (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), strengths-based therapy and use of mindfulness techniques.

    I have experience working in partial and intensive outpatient hospitalization programs as well as substance abuse programs where I worked with adults with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, trauma, personality disorders, oppositional defiant disorder, and family systems. I also have 12 years of experience teaching social-emotional skills to teenagers with serious emotional disturbance as a high school teacher certified in Special Education, English, and Mathematics. In this capacity, I’ve counseled students and teamed with families and service providers, such as behavioral analysts and social workers, to provide wrap-around support for adolescents. As a case manager, I often conducted functional behavior analysis for my students with a proven record in behavior change, which currently aids in my case conceptualization as a therapist. This experience also helped me to realize my passion for helping those afflicted by mental health issues and to decide to work with adolescents and adults struggling with these.

    I have dual master’s degrees- one in special education from Lehigh University and one in school psychology from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM). I am working toward a doctorate at PCOM as well as Pennsylvania licensure as a psychologist, and I am adept in using various psychological and psychoeducational assessment batteries. As an advocate for holistic wellness, I instruct Pilates in my free time and plan to become a certified yoga instructor as well.

    My therapeutic approaches are:

    • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
    • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    • Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
    • Mindfulness


    • Safety-Care Crisis Prevention Training
    • Working towards Pennsylvania certification as a school psychologist


    • American Psychological Association
    • National Association of School Psychologists
