The decision to seek help for issues impacting your mental health is not an easy one to make. However, when you do make that decision, you need a therapist who can connect with you as a person. I keep my caseload very small so that everyone gets the individual attention that they deserve because no one likes to feel like a "number." As a registered nurse, nurse practitioner, and master certified health education specialist, we focus on your concerns from a holistic perspective. This is the optimal approach to address most problems as very few challenges in life are "simple."

My approach is comprehensive and focuses on you as an individual. In addition to being a psychologist, I am also a Pennsylvania state-licensed and board-certified psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) and provide medication management as indicated. Our work is primarily counseling in nature but may include medications- ONLY if appropriate. I also work with those who are already receiving medication management services from other providers. Please note that I do not use benzodiazepines in my practice.
