I am an experienced counselor with a concentration in addiction and trauma counseling. I offer a safe and welcoming experience for clients seeking wellness.

I have over a decade of experience as a certified alcohol and drug counselor here in Pennsylvania. Over the years I have developed an ever increasing awareness of the role trauma plays in behavioral and mental health issues. To that end I also have a certification as a trauma professional. I offer my clients a safe place to be themselves and to discover, perhaps for the first time, who they are and where they want to go in life. I believe in empowering my clients to strive to be the better version of themselves.

I believe that everyone is deserving of do-overs, second chances, grace to be human and meaningful connection. I also believe that with connection, real connection, our relationship as therapist-client is boundless. I should say that my clients should not expect me to work harder than they are willing to work on their recovery. I will meet you where you are at help guide you to a better place.

I have developed an excellent reputation in the community and have many connections in a variety of fields. If I can't help you, I know someone who can.
