About Me

I believe in the restorative power of counseling, and I am passionate about supporting others along their life journey through their stress and struggles toward their desired goals.  It is always my goal to provide an individualized approach with a warm, empathic style.  I seek to build a solid therapeutic relationship in which clients can feel safe, be authentic, and experience personalized growth, all on their own accord.

I am a full-time secondary school counselor in a school district in Central PA, so I naturally specialize in a wide variety of needs facing children and adolescents (and their families). However, I am conversant with the needs of adults and families just the same.
