When life becomes difficult, I understand the courage one possesses in order to reach out for help. With empathy, warmth, and humor, I strive to create a safe and nurturing therapeutic environment in which I help develop more preferred ways of experiencing life as well as to increase vulnerability within themselves.
Through a systemic framework, I work with individuals, families, and couples broaden and transform their communication with themselves, their partners, their families, and the world around them. In addition, I help clients recognize how their past hurts may influence their intimate relationships and how they walk through life.
In 2014, I graduated from La Salle University with a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Following my time at La Salle, I have worked with a variety of families, couples, children, and adolescents who experienced a variety of issues not limited to depression, anxiety, behavioral issues, family conflict, and relationship stress. In addition, I enjoyed working with men who struggled with unrealistic and damaging gender expectations, which often created unhealthy relationships with others. From a position of social justice, my work also extends into recognizing how the intersection of gender identity, sexual identity, race and culture, age, and ability may influence the way one walks through the world.
Additionally, I have experience working with families who have children on the Autism Spectrum. I enjoy working alongside families through the process of accepting an autism diagnosis as well as to identify how autism is experienced within the family system.
As a therapist, I am invariably humbled by the strength and resiliency I witness in others. My hope is that I can help others recognize that same strength and resiliency within themselves.
