I am a licensed professional counselor with years of experience in a wide range of settings - private practice, community mental health, grief support, university counseling centers, schools, and rehabilitation facilities. My approach is holistic, with an awareness of cultural and systemic impacts on mental health, and an intersectional lens.
Areas of expertise include grief and loss, depression, anxiety and stress, self-esteem, family systems, identity exploration, trauma recovery, and interpersonal relationships. I bring a deep sense of empathy, openness, creativity, warmth, compassion, and a sense of humor to the therapeutic relationship. Using modalities of mindfulness practices, insight-based talk therapy, and CBT, we will work together to integrate your experiences that need healing and/or understanding.
Mindfulness, 'awareness with compassion', is a tool I teach in Philadelphia schools and incorporate into my private practice. If you are interested in learning this empowering skill, I am here to offer how you can use this moment-to-moment practice to ease places where you feel stuck, and to bring a mind-body connection to your daily experiences.
Sometimes life can be overwhelming; we can look at what factors are contributing and how to navigate through with more clarity and peace. Change is possible, and talking to a non-judgmental professional in a safe and nurturing space is one avenue to acceptance and momentum. I believe that the therapeutic relationship and process can deeply impact my clients' ability to grow, heal and reach their full potential in this complex world.
Whether you have had therapy in the past, or are curious about starting the process for the first time, please give me a call for a free phone consultation to see if we are a good fit. I look forward to speaking with you!
