“We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand,"
 --Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture.
  I am a clinical counselor and have a Master's Degrees in School Counseling and Sociology from Kutztown University. As I come from a large family myself, I can understand the unique challenges that are involved with parenting and complexity of raising children.
 I will listen to you and offer encouragement as you grow and heal. I can help you to improve your children’s behaviors and gain a better understanding of yourself. I provide a judgement-free atmosphere in which you can make sense of your situation and learn to make healthier life choices. I have spent years doing research on families, child abuse, and how people overcome personal struggles, am now using this knowledge to help others.
  This is often useful for children (ages 3-13) as they often have a hard time expressing themselves, but through play they may begin to express feelings and communicate with their therapist. I also do parent-child sessions in which I can help you improve your relationship with your child/children, and specialize in “women’s issues”.
I enjoy gardening, cooking, have completed several marathons and I have two dogsAs a Clinical Counselor, I specialize in marriage counseling, play therapy, autism spectrum disorders, and believe in providing a judgement-free zone in which people of any age can make sense of their situaion and learn to make healther life choices.

I am a Master’s level therapist who graduated with a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan.  My passion is helping individuals to achieve their greatest self, to find fulfillment in their lives, and to help them achieve their goals. I enjoy working with women, children and adolescents.  I specialize in a variety of areas including depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, self-esteem, and relationship building.

When counseling a client, I focus on being a strong, emotional support to help them feel safe and comfortable.  I encourage clients to speak openly and honestly with me throughout the therapeutic process, as I firmly believe all clients are the key to their own healing and success.  My hope is to empower others to identify and seek the tools, skills, and solutions to achieve their goals and overcome barriers that keep them stuck in the process.  I am here to assist clients in their journey to success and healing as they achieve happier and more fulfilling lives.  I tailor the counseling to best meet their needs. 

During my free time, I love spending time with my family and my chocolate Lab, “Maya”.  I love being outside in nature, hiking, dancing, teaching fitness classes in the community, and coaching a youth field hockey program.
