Depression

If you’re here because you’re feeling overwhelmed, unmotivated, or like you’ve hit a wall, then you’ve taken the hardest and most important step just by reaching out. In our work together, I’ll help you notice the things you say to yourself and the beliefs you hold about yourself. We’ll work together to question these beliefs, to bring curiosity to the process, and to discover new meanings and bring balance to your life. 

Anxiety

Anxiety is a necessary response to some situations. Without it we wouldn’t survive. But if your anxiety is feeling overwhelming, if it’s disrupting your sleep or keeping you from doing the things you want to do, I can help you find the space between what triggers your anxiety and how you react to it so that you can choose a response that works for you instead of against you.

Transitions

Transitions are a normal part of life. Whether you’re experiencing a midlife change, a change in your family life or other relationships, a change in your work life, or taking on some other new role, transitions can be disorienting, anxiety-provoking, even paralyzing. I support people in recognizing their response to transition as an opportunity for growth. I collaborate with my clients to help them navigate and adapt to life transitions with curiosity and a shared sense of possibility.

Self-Esteem & Self-Acceptance

Self-esteem is based on how others see you, but what really matters is how you see yourself and how you feel about yourself ~ self-acceptance. Through our work together, you’ll discover what’s getting in the way of self-acceptance and you’ll learn how to bring compassion to the vulnerable parts of you that need it most. Psychologist Carl Rogers said it best: “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”

Licensed Professional Counselor

About Me

I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I have a Master’s degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Chestnut Hill College and my undergraduate degree is in Business Management from Syracuse University. I have been trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS)  Level 1 & 2. Clients connect with the IFS approach because it values and respects each individual's inner system and provides for true collaboration between therapist and client. I offer individual therapy for adults ages 25+ and work with people from diverse backgrounds, customizing my approach according to each client's needs.  

My Approch

My Approach

I help people who are experiencing depression, anxiety, symptoms of trauma and PTSD, life transitions, and self-esteem issues. My approach is non-pathologizing; I don't see people as their problems - I see their resourcefulness and I see how hard they're working to manage their lives.

 

I use a strengths-based perspective based on each person’s natural resilience and inner resources. My empathic, person-centered approach empowers my clients to trust their innate wisdom, and I collaborate with them to help them notice patterns, question their assumptions about themselves, and to bring curiosity and self-compassion to the therapy process and to their lives outside of therapy. 

 

Through our work together, clients gain insight into what’s keeping them stuck and discover how to get what they need from their relationships, their work, and their lives. The words I hear most often from clients when they reflect back on the work we’ve done together are “clarity”, “empowered”, “accompanied”, and “transformative”. It would be my honor to partner with you in this way.

Fee & FAQ

Fee 

My fee is $140 for a 50-minute session

I don't accept insurance, however I can provide you with a Superbill, which is a receipt with the codes you need so that you can  submit it to your insurance company for possible reimbursement if you choose. You may want to check with your insurance company to see if they offer reimbursement for an out-of-network provider.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you seeing clients in-person?

I see fully vaccinated clients in my office in Wyndmoor, PA and offer telehealth appointments via a private, secure online platform for those who prefer them. My license requires that telehealth clients be located in Pennsylvania at time of service.

Do you have evening or weekend appointments?

At this time I only have limited availability for daytime/weekday appointments.

Do you do couples counseling?

I offer individual therapy for adults ages 25+. I don't offer couples counseling.

How often will we have appointments?

I recommend that we start with weekly appointments. This gives us the opportunity to get to know each other, to identify your therapy goals and to work towards them in a consistent way. Some clients transition to every other week when they feel that they've made significant progress towards their goals and wish to meet less frequently. With that said, if there are financial constraints around meeting weekly, we can discuss this and try to find a way that works for you.

 

How long will I need to be in therapy?

This varies depending on your goals and the issues you bring to therapy. Many people experience some relief after a few sessions, and this is a great starting point because it means we've begun to build a strong therapeutic relationship, which is the foundation for a successful therapy experience. Therapy can last anywhere from a few months to a year or more. Discussing progress is an important part of the therapy process. It validates the hard work you've done, it helps us identify anything that I can be doing differently and helps us focus on your changing needs.

Do you offer sliding scale/reduced fee?

I believe that everyone deserves access to mental health care and that finances shouldn't be a barrier. If we’re a good fit to work together but you're unable to pay my full fee, you can tell me what you are able to pay. In most cases I will meet you there, or I will try to help you find other resources for therapy you can afford.

Next Steps

The relationship between a client and their therapist is the number one factor in a healing therapy experience. I invite you to contact me using the form below to schedule an introductory phone call so that you can share a bit about what you're hoping to gain from therapy and I can answer any questions you may have. This will help us decide if we're a good fit to work together. 

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

“Owning our story can be hard, but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky, but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy – the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ~ Brene Brown
