Who Am I

A bold free spirit may be how my family and friends describe me.  I attempt to find the positive in every situation, and I am a lover of all the wonderful things life truly has to offer; animals, nature, music, food, and travel are some of the few examples.  I say all of this because I have done the inner healing needed when I was at the lowest point in my life, and it is amazing what you learn about yourself and how much you can grow into your fullest potential.  

 

One of my greatest passions has always been to help other people, and being a therapist allows me to help you help yourself. To guide, encourage, and teach while you find the solutions within you.

 I work with individuals that may have struggles related to anxiety, depression, PTSD, grief/loss and family/relationship conflict who want to challenge themselves by addressing what holds them back so they can achieve self-sufficiency and resiliency

 

My background includes a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Kutztown University, and a license to practice social work.  I have worked with all ages and have experience in many different settings including in-home healthcare, homeless shelters, IBHS(wrap-around services), child welfare, and acute inpatient mental health treatment.
