I am passionate about helping people achieve greater self understanding, acceptance, and connection with others and lead happier, healthier lives. My therapeutic style balances attentive listening and active engagement while combining insight, emotion and skills-based frameworks. I assist individuals in understanding how their past experiences may be impacting their current functioning, live more fully in the present, and develop ways to cope with life situations that may involve risking new ways of behaving, thinking and feeling. As there is no one size approach to helping, I work thoughtfully and collaboratively with each individual to understand his or her personal struggles and needs and achieve his/her goals.

More Info About My Practice
I have both seen and experienced the value psychotherapy can offer in relieving pain and suffering, cultivating awareness, and helping people risk change. As this is often difficult work, it can be hard to do alone. As Robert Frost so well said, "The best way out is always through." I would be honored to assist you through your journey to health, relief, and self discovery and encourage you to contact me to schedule an appointment if you believe such an approach and partnership can be helpful to you. You are welcome to call for a free 10 minute telephone consultation to help us decide if we might be a good match. I accept UPMC, Highmark, and Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurances as well as private pay ($100/hr). Other insurance companies may reimburse you for seeing me out-of-network.

I have experience working with a range of issues and problem areas, including anxiety/stress, depression, substance use/abuse, eating disorders, interpersonal/relationship issues, grief/loss, identity development, and low self esteem, though generally enjoy working with those who are eager to understanding themselves and willing to risk and accept responsibility for change.
