A perfect blend of warmth, empathy, and supportive learning is the quintessential therapeutic path to gaining the skills and insights into your issues and how you can solve them. At times, I will be the validating support you need to build you up and see the positives in your life. Other times, I will be the accountability and extra push you may need to make changes.
I have heard from numerous current and past clients that I am “real” in the sessions. I think carrying a genuineness to myself helps you grow. Laughter and connection are at the center of healing. Our therapeutic relationship will nurture and empower you to create positive, healthy connections in your life that lead you to feel a higher state of well-being.
My work is informed by interactions that I’ve had with past and current clients, professional training, and my collegiate teaching experiences at Temple University, Penn State University, and Rutgers University. My passion has always been to treat individuals, couples, and families through solace oriented teaching.
I use a variety of different tools that include worksheets, podcasts, books, and anything else I come across that I think would help you get to where you want to go. It’s not unusual for me to reach out between sessions with the latest article I read, or to send you a podcast as I’m halfway through it if I think it would benefit you. I’ve found that layering information (i.e. you hear it from me, you hear it from a podcast, you read it in a book, etc.) helps you to begin to connect to the change that you are seeking and makes it easier to have “aha” moments where things start to click for you.
As a Certified Sex Therapist and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a decade of training and experience, I’m confident that my support and guidance will help you obtain the change you are looking. I received my first Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from La Salle University and my second Masters in Education in Human Sexuality from Widener University. I’m currently working on finishing my Ph.D. in Human Sexuality at Widener University.
