I have been working in the counseling field for over 15 years, educated and trained for with individual, families, couples, and groups.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in two states; PA and TX, A National Certified Counselor (NCC) meeting national standards (an additional step in the field of Counseling) and Certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) and an active member with the American Counseling Association (ACA), National Board of Certified Counselors and EMDRIA (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy International Association .
My Bachelors Degree was awarded from The State University of NY @ Buffalo.
I began my Graduate degree studies, Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology, at Saint Martin's College WA, and completed it through
Chatham University, PA.
My counseling style will focus on your thoughts, behaviors, emotions, and sensations, utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and EMDR.
Both techniques are considered the golden standard in counseling.
I also use various therapy styles that have been proven to be effective.
I believe in empowering my clients and their loved ones reduce the stigma of counseling/mental health and benefits of medication (if needed).
Counseling should be viewed like any other service in the healthcare field.
I've received positive feedback from past clients:
"It is nothing like I expected it would be", "I feel relaxed here", "I don't feel judged", "Each time I leave a session I feel better ", "I am not ashamed anymore",
"I have learned I am more powerful then I realized"
