"Progress not perfection."  Everyone’s journey in life looks different and at times can leave us experiencing a variety of emotions. I believe in the importance of validating each individual for who he/she/they are. If you allow me I will walk with you on this journey of self discovery and self love.

I am a life long Pittsburgher with a desire to travel and explore. I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Waynesburg University and my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Duquesne University. I have been fortunate in my career to experience various therapeutic settings and the privilege to work with adolescents, couples, families, and individuals at various levels of care. I have experience with both a mental health and substance use setting which has allowed me to have experience with different struggles such as anxiety, depression, trauma, self- esteem, addictions and sexuality.  I believe in supporting each individual for who he/she/they are and do so through the use of client-centered, solution focused, motivational interviewing along with CBT to address both short term and long term goals. If you allow me I hope to assist with the journey to self discovery and personal growth you are on.
