Coping with life’s challenges can feel overwhelming. I am someone who can help listen and guide you to achieve balance in life’s struggles. Whatever you are struggling with, you are not alone. As your therapist, I can help you to make positive changes in your daily life and bring hope to the future. It is my goal to bring the most supportive, nonjudgmental, and ethical practice in my work. I enjoy working with adults with a variety of issues.
Life these days comes with enough challenges. Having someone to listen without judgement shouldn’t be one of those. That is where I come in as your therapist.
Together, we will work on strategies that allow you to address and overcome past and present obstacles in your life. I am committed to helping people overcome addictions and learn ways to manage their depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, trauma, anger and other stressors that may affect your daily life.
I graduated from Waynesburg University with a Master’s of Arts Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Fairmont State University with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Psychology. I have spent over 10 years working with children, adolescents, and adults in various inpatient and outpatient settings working through a variety of mental health and substance use disorders. My background has provided me with a variety of techniques and therapeutic approaches from Reality Therapy to Dialectical Behavior Therapy to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and everything else in between. My theory is that when people have hope and can learn to challenge and replace irrational thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes, people are free to experience change. My goal is to provide individualized treatment to help you gain insight, self-awareness, and self-control in your life.
There are times in life when we all need help. When things get hard, you are not alone. I am here to listen, and provide a non-judgmental, compassionate and accepting environment. I will work to meet you exactly where you are in your journey, to help you find strength and hope. We will work together to meet your personal goals, tackling the changes you have been wanting to make. I am experienced in treating anxiety, Depression, Substance Use Disorder, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, parenting, coping with major life changes, traumatic stress and stress management.
I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral techniques, Reality therapy, and Person Centered techniques, to assist in improving coping skills, change ways of thinking that have been keeping you stuck, and developing behaviors to meet your needs.
I am currently accepting college age and adults, for individual and couples counseling.
I am a graduate of Waynesburg University, obtaining a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling in 2015. I am currently being supervised by Esther Ervin, MA, LPC, ALPS
