My Approach to Helping

Welcome! I'm here to offer you a warm and supportive space where we can address your challenges together. My goal is to provide the encouragement and validation you need, while also gently guiding you towards growth. Clients often tell me that my genuine, down-to-earth approach makes a big difference. Laughter and connection are key to our work, helping to build a nurturing relationship that empowers you to make meaningful changes and improve your well-being.

I bring my passion for helping individuals, couples, and families, drawing on my teaching experience at Temple, Penn State, and Rutgers. I believe in making changes that truly resonate with you. While some changes can bring quick relief, deeper changes can transform how you see yourself and interact with the world, leading to lasting, meaningful improvements in your life.

In our sessions, I focus on creating new, positive experiences that you can take with you into everyday life. I use a variety of approaches to meet your unique needs and often share additional resources like worksheets, podcasts, and books to reinforce our work together.

With over a decade of experience and advanced degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy and Human Sexuality, I'm here to support you on your journey. Let's work together to create the positive, healthy changes you’re looking for and help you achieve a higher state of well-being.
