I am a Master's prepared Marriage and Family Therapist who is passionate about helping people overcome anything that stands in the way of developing rich and deeply rewarding relationships. I work with a wide variety of mental health, spiritual, relational, and individual struggles. I am collaborative in my approach and able to adapt to whatever your individual therapeutic needs may be.

In 2021 I left my 17 year career as a Registered Nurse to pursue meeting the mental health needs of the community through therapy. My background in nursing is in ICU and surgical services (PACU). Though my clinical experiences during that time were not primarily mental health, my nursing career has truly paved the way and provided a solid foundation for my transition into the field of marriage and family therapy. In April of2021, just prior to leaving my job at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health, I opened my private practice, CRAVE Therapy and Counseling Services, LLC. CRAVE stands for all the things I am passionate about– Courage, Restoration, Attachment, Vulnerability, and Evolution. Whether you find yourself in a difficult season of life or are looking for ways to enrich and deepen your marriage/family relationships, I would love to meet with you!
