The way I approach therapy
Did you grow up with the idea that therapy has a negative stigma associated with it? Sadly, many of us have. Maybe you are in the process of learning to embrace the power of therapy, or recognizing that you might need a little bit of help. Perhaps you’ve said that you want therapy to ‘fix’ something. Regardless of what brought you here, you aren’t broken! Instead, I invite you to think of therapy (and this whole journey) as a way of working toward becoming the version of yourself that you wish to see. In our therapy sessions, I will help guide you through this journey and meet you where you are to help you grow along the way.
My journey so far
As a child I loved the idea of having a career in which I could help others, but I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted it to be. I initially pursued a double major of Criminal Justice and Psychology at University of New Haven in Connecticut, but even after graduating wasn’t sure which direction to go. After taking a few years to work in the social work field, I returned to school and earned my Master of Social Work from Southern Connecticut State University. Since then, I have worked at a variety of agencies providing intensive therapy to children, adolescents, and families.
Outside of the therapy office, you can find me…
Outdoors! In the warmer months I love exploring hiking trails, camping, lounging in a pool or on the beach, and sitting by a fire under the stars. When snow starts to fall, I trade in my hiking boots for my snowboard boots! One day I hope to check off all 63 National Parks from my bucket list – 24 down, 39 to go! 🙂 When I’m feeling lazy I spend my time reading the latest Colleen Hoover book, doing a puzzle, or scrolling on TikTok.

Therapy with me will be whatever you make of it – you set your goals and decide what you want to work on, and I’m here to help you along the way. Thinking about therapy but not exactly sure why? That’s okay too! We can start by just getting to know you and go from there.
If you think we may be a good fit or you have a few questions first – feel free to reach out for a free 15-minute consultation. I offer online therapy in Pennsylvania and Colorado for teens, young adults, and adults.
