I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and received my Masters in Social Work from The University of Pittsburgh. I am a strengths based, solution focused and person-centered therapist. I specialize in treating youth and young adults, however my full treatment population includes youth, young adults and adults.
I believe the therapist/client relationship is essential to successful outcomes. I encourage parental collaboration when working with young children. I create a warm, accepting environment to allow individuals to express themselves freely and openly.
I am a Certified Autism Spectrum Clinical Specialist (CASDCS). As a CASDCS I offer safe, effective strength-based interventions, strategies and approaches to individuals with Autism regardless of age or developmental stage. My experience also includes, but is not limited to ADHD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Depressive Disorders, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, self-esteem issues, social skill deficits, relationship difficulties and self-harm and suicidal ideations.
