Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am a fully licensed, board certified mental health counselor/therapist in the state of PA with case management experience working in workforce development helping unemployed citizens of Philadelphia achieve their employment goals. I provided individually tailored interventions, such as workshops on job search, resume writing and interviewing skills. I also advocated for those individuals who were at risk and in need of additional support, including those who were experiencing depression and anxiety.
Both education and professional experiences makes me a uniquely qualified as a therapist that will support individuals who are unemployed/under employed to those individuals at top of the corporate ladder.
Deciding to start therapy takes bravery; not because it is something to be ashamed of, but that it is okay to seek guidance. Depression and anxiety almost always follows each other and are symptoms of an underlying issue.
Therapy is not about being labeled crazy.
Therapy is not about not having the ability to fix your problems.
Therapy does not mean that you will have to go forever.
Therapy is a way to have an objective person guiding you towards developing better interactions and behaviors by helping you to process your feelings and live as productively as possible.
Your therapist's job is not to fix you, as you are not broken. Their job is to be that one person that will listen, help you process your feelings and promote successful future decisions. Not knowing where to turn can make us feel as if we no longer recognize ourselves or our surroundings. You will be provided with a listening, empathetic ear in a safe environment.
Your sessions will vary from simple psychoeducation therapy (talk, learn and process) to examining how your symptoms are affecting you physically. You will learn to become self-aware through guided meditation and other relaxation techniques to calm your mind and body.
My main passion is to help everyone to become the best version of themselves. I work with clients to enable themselves to begin the challenging work of self-discovery, growth potential and change through my clinical skills in my therapeutic approach. I provide individual, couples and group therapy to adolescents and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, anger management, loss/grief, relationships, pregnancy/parenting, and life transitions.
