My focus is on women and women's issues. I am working on my Maternal Mental Health Certification through Postpartum Support International. I am working on getting groups of women together to provide group counseling in the Pittsburgh area. There is certainly strength in numbers when coping with common issues that women face.

If you experience any of the following, please visit my website and reach out!

*Sleep Issues
*Loss of interest in activities
*Difficulty parenting
*Questioning career
*Sexual issues
*Low frustration tolerance
*Lacking patience
*Worry or concern
*Racing thoughts
*Not wanting to do things

I feel that everyone is unique in their needs and experiences in life, so my techniques and interventions vary with each person. There are "core" interventions used for anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc, but each should be tailored to where each person is at in their therapeutic journey. What works for one, may not work for another, so I try to continue educating myself through training and conferences to stay up to date and knowledgeable.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

The thought of going to therapy can bring up many different feelings. Fear, shame, guilt, embarrassment, those are common feelings I hear when I first talk with clients. I want you to put all of that aside and realize there is nothing to be fearful for or embarrassed about. Everyone is the world could find therapy beneficial if they are ready to be open and take the time to reflect on their lives. Therapy should be seen as a really great option to help better your life. The hardest step is reaching out, but I assure you, once you reach out and talk to a therapist, your mind will ease and you'll be feeling good about the decision you made!
