My Approach to Helping

Change happens one decision at a time. I am a licensed psychologist located in Wexford. I provide a warm, nonjudgmental, and safe environment for people to explore, learn, and thrive in life. My first meeting with you would involve getting to know your story and your presenting problem. Collaboratively, we discuss and establish concrete goals for therapy and start working on an action plan towards wellness. My approach is tailored to the specific needs of each person. At times, I am direct and provide insight and solutions to the presenting problems; other times, I work with you to discover the best solution to your problems. In general, I use a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, solution focused therapy, and mindfulness based interventions, all of which are research-based approaches. I firmly believe that with all relationships, guidance and problem solving should always come after understanding, validation, and empathy. Therapy within a Christian framework is provided upon request.

Having a good rapport with your therapist is one of the best predictors of successful outcome. It is difficult to develop a good rapport if you don't know anything about the person. Therefore, I'd like to share with you a little about myself. I've been married for 7 years to my wife who is from Pittsburgh. Although I grew up in New York, since meeting my wife, I have become a Steelers fan. In my spare time, I enjoy reading books on marriage and relationships, watching movies, listening to music, dancing, and playing with my three beautiful daughters.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Therapy can be a place where you gain insight, understanding, problem-solving skills, coping strategies, hope, clarity, and action steps in a safe and nonjudgmental environment. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn.
