I've been a Counselor for 20+ years working primarily in Secondary and Higher Education settings. I have my Masters in Counseling and PA State Certified as a Secondary Education Guidance Counselor and Higher Education Advisor. I opened a private practice one year ago as I found working in the Education setting to be somewhat limiting in the services I could offer my students and their families. I love working individually with my clients to help identify what keeps them from having the best life possible. I've completed multiple continuing education requirements over the last 20 years primarily focused around Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and helping free clients from their past so they are able to create a whole new realm of possibility for their future! Once you get a hold of what we are making things mean - you are free to create whatever you want!
Some of my specialities are stress/anxiety, depression and coping with transition and divorce. I am able to give a diagnosis code if needed for insurance submittal but my counseling philosophy is to steer clear of labels if at all possible. Labels have limits. And we as humans , should not have labels imposed upon us for the sake of getting reimbursed by insurance or to get a prescription.
My services are very individualized and I work on a case by case basis for course of treatment. I love groups for empowering teens or parents that are struggling with a specific issue - divorce, empty nest, college prep, stress to name a few.
I am dedicated to my own self care and personal growth journey and practice everything I preach!
I am an empty nester now after raising two daughters on my own for 16 years. This allows me to spend more time with my clients with the goal of keeping them out of what I call the black hole of self help. I think there are multiple stigmas around the need for Mental Health Counseling and I hope to be able to ease clients into the benefits of having someone in your corner. I think being an online therapist will give those who might not have reached out for help the opportunity to get the guidance they need.
