When the challenges and struggles of life become to much to handle, you are not alone. Having someone listen and accept you exactly as you are, while helping you change is what I love to do. I strive to build a strong, trusting and accepting relationship with every person that I see. I love helping adolescents and adults work through difficult issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, substance abuse, and overall life satisfaction. I have a sincere desire to help you make the changes that you have been wanting to make in your life.
 
I utilize Reality Therapy, to allow individuals to take control of their life and learn to make the best choices for them at the time. I use CBT and REBT to uncover and change negative thinking patterns. I specialize in treatment of traumatic experiences, receiving specific training in Prolonged Exposure.
 
In addition to Mental Health Counseling, I am able to provide a spiritually based approach to counseling, upon request, to allow each client access to comprehensive mental and spiritual care. I also enjoy providing couples counseling, as many individuals can benefit from learning improved communication skills and conflict resolution in their relationship with their partner.

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.
