Upper St. Clair office
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 began my career in the helping field as a Behavior Specialist Consultant and Mobile Therapist working with individuals and their families. Much of my experience has been working as an Outpatient therapist for children and adolescents in a school setting over the past several years.
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.
My experience includes, but is not limited to, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, anxiety, childhood trauma, coping skills, depression, grief, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, self-esteem issues, social skills deficits, and self-harm and suicidal ideations.
