My Approach to Helping
I believe that the best therapy outcomes are arrived with dialogue between client and therapist using integrative theories of psychotherapy and other methods of therapy that address client's needs as they occur. My clients appreciate that I listen to their concerns and compassionately guide them toward desired change. My philosophy is based on the knowledge that the individual has the skills and tools to achieve desired outcomes, and my role is to help the individual to access, practice and use those skills and tools.
More Info About My Practice
I accept Blue Cross, Highmark, and United Behavioralhealth insurances and am in the process of being able to accept other insurances. I currently offer a sliding scale to assist clients with payment until I am able to accept their insurance. I am aware that financial issues often prevent people from seeking needed counseling. I encourage clients to discuss financial issues with me because good therapy includes financial wellness.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I specialize in depression, anxiety, panic attacks, anger management, ADHD, Autism Spectrum, and difficulties such as difficult break-ups and marriage difficulties. I help people to view issues with increased objectivity, and to learn to develop a strong sense of self which is essential in managing both personal and work relationships. I am also experienced with substance use disorders and sexual addiction problems. Contact me to determine if we can work together on your issue.
