Pleasant Hills office
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in PA, and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Ohio, with experience in helping children, teens, adults, and families. I have helped my clients address issues related to (but not limited to) stress, behavior modification, addiction, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, grief, loss, stage of life changes, trauma, family dynamics, and self-esteem/image. I have also helped men address issues related to confidence, masculinity, and self-worth.
I am a native Pittsburgher, and earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Youngstown State University in Ohio. I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings, as well as homes and schools, and have worked with individuals, families, and both small and large groups. I have also provided professional consultation to families, schools, employers, and legal and judiciary bodies.
I aim to be supportive, engaging, and accepting, and will be appropriately challenging when needed. My style involves all five senses, cognitive processes, verbal and self-talk aspects, spiritual principals, physical release, and relationships with others. As my client, I’ll work with you to identify problems, strengths, and weaknesses, overcome obstacles, and help you to monitor and manage your improved outcomes on your own. We’re on this journey and in this world together, and I’ll assist you in managing the messy times.
