As a child, people would describe me as an “old soul.” I like to think this is a result of my ability to listen carefully and consider the worldviews of others. Additional descriptors that people use are loving and thoughtful yet direct. These qualities make me a counselor who can offer compassion, understanding, and encouragement. I hope that we can work together to build a therapeutic relationship of trust to explore the complexities of the experiences bringing you to counseling.
I have worked in classrooms with children placed in special education and the Public Awareness unit at Intellectual disAbility Services in Philadelphia. This experience has taught me to lean into others’ lived experiences of disability. I believe in valuing individuals, no matter our differences, and will make sure you feel this in-session.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies with a specialization in interpersonal communication from Rowan University. That’s just a nerdy way of saying I really like talking to people and understand the power of the stories we hear, as well as the stories we tell ourselves. Now, I’m working on my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Temple University, where I’m focusing on mental health counseling.
Applying the Systems approach of contextualizing our problems and the Narrative approach of rewriting experiences, I can help clients develop a new relationship with their lives. Together, we can work toward a place of understanding, so you can feel yourself leading a meaningful life with confidence. My goal is to help you find strength and motivation within yourself to move through your difficulties and grow beyond them.
