[Click here for her Professional Disclosure Statement]

I have always been fascinated by behavior, why people do what they do. So I studied and majored in psychology and started administering psychological assessments to examine behavior. While I enjoyed utilizing tests to answer questions about behavior, I found myself wanting to spend more time talking and engaging with the people I was testing. To this end, I added therapy to my repertoire working in schools with elementary and middle school aged children. I worked with students in Maryland and in Philadelphia. Therapy with children evolved into therapy with older teenagers and then adults.

I approach therapy from a person centered and cognitive behavioral approach while also utilizing other evidenced based interventions that my clients may need. I am also very fond of using humor in therapy as well as a way to make my clients feel more comfortable and at ease.

Fun facts: I am Mom to four girls. I love watching horror movies, especially 80's horror movies, creating mosaic art, and enjoying a good cup of coffee.
