About Me

I know how infuriating it can be to find a therapist you can connect with as I have personally fired 6 out of 7 of my own therapists. It’s important to note that I’m not your “typical therapist” (I dye my hair bright colors, will curse with you during sessions, and powerlift). ​ Sometimes traumatic childhood experiences can cause long-term anxiety and even PTSD. Having suffered from some of my own trauma as a child, I knew I needed to heal myself first before I could effectively help others. It is through my own work and healing, that I have come to a place of strength and grace. And it is from this place, that I have a genuine desire to help others who are trying to recover from difficult life circumstances. I believe that any strong therapeutic relationship is built on collaboration, honesty, and the belief that change is possible. My work is rooted in shared humor, truth without judgment, a holistic approach with the mind/body connection, and building on individual strengths. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Trained EMDR Therapist (will be certified by March 2022). I graduated from Kutztown University in 2014 with my Master’s in Social Work and have worked in numerous settings over the years as a therapist and clinical supervisor: schools, in-home family therapy, homeless shelter for youth, outpatient clinic, and residential facility for adults with​ Traumatic Brain Injuries.
