While I wanted to become a therapist since my adolescent years, I took the scenic route to get here and fell into administrative work. I found this work unfulfilling and in 2003, I made a drastic change. I became a rape crisis counselor and a juvenile court victim advocate where I provided crisis response and supportive counseling. After two years, this experience confirmed my intuition that this was my path. I returned to school and earned my Master’s degree at Bryn Mawr School of Social Work in 2008 becoming a therapist in the Philadelphia area and fulfilling my dreams of what I wanted to be ‘when I grew up.’
During my internships, I further enhanced my knowledge of facilitating group therapy along with individual therapy using various approaches and techniques. Since this time I have participated in numerous trainings to stay up to date and current with proven ways I can best serve my clients. Additionally, I engaged in a three-year post-graduate program at the Pennsylvania Gestalt Center and in 2017 became a Certified Gestalt Therapist. In 2018 I became a Certified Hypnotherapist. I have been in private practice since 2010 where I continue to find it an honor and privilege to be able to partner with people on their unique journeys toward finding peace and achieving their personal goals.
