It has been my greatest honor to be a practicing social worker in the mental health profession for more than eight years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Shippensburg University and my Master of Social Work from Marywood University. While attending graduate school, I provided in-home and community-based behavioral health services to children, adolescents, and families (now commonly known as Intensive Behavioral Health Services). Following graduation, within the same agency, my work in the community and in homes became more trauma-focused. I continued my career in helping those who have experienced trauma, with my expertise being children and adolescents. Some of my most passionate work was assisting survivors in navigating the ins and outs of the criminal justice and child advocacy systems as I walked next to them through their healing journeys. Currently, I work with the adolescent population and their families to help stabilize daily functioning and manage acute mental health symptoms related to depression, anxiety and other clinical concerns.
As a now licensed professional, I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families who have sought services for a variety of mental health concerns and difficult life experiences. I have worked with many diverse client populations in individual, family and group settings. I am certified in the TF-CBT model and will be pursuing certification in DBT and EMDR in the future.
As your therapist, I believe it is of the utmost importance to build a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship as that is the foundation needed to be successful in treatment. I approach our work together with compassion and an open heart, from within a safe, non-judgmental environment for those who find themselves in need. As your clinician, my strategies are born from a creative strength-based and trauma-informed lens of holistic treatment to meet you where you are at.
With a person-centered perspective, I offer flexibility in my approach to accomplish the goals that are individualized to each person. Together we can work as a collaborative team, with you as the captain of your own ship on a unique journey to wellness and healing.
