About Me

Greetings! I'm an experienced EMDR therapist with a passion for healing and growth. Located in beautiful York County, PA, I bring over 50 years of life experience to my practice. Beyond the therapeutic realm, I am a proud cat dad, finding solace and joy in the companionship of my feline friends. My interests extend to exploring the profound narratives within museums, immersing myself in the worlds of both fiction and non-fiction literature, and satisfying my wanderlust through travel. Join me on a journey towards healing and self-discovery, where compassion meets experience.

Education & Experience

I bring nearly a decade of dedicated experience in the human service field, with a focus of over 5 years on the treatment of trauma and addiction. My foundational knowledge stems from earning a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from Temple University, providing me with a comprehensive understanding of social work principles and practices. As an EMDR-certified therapist, I have acquired specialized skills in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, a therapeutic approach renowned for its effectiveness in trauma resolution. My commitment to addressing addiction is underscored by my certification as a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC), reflecting my expertise in substance use disorder treatment. Furthermore, I hold certification as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), demonstrating my dedication to delivering trauma-informed care at the highest standard. Additionally, I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), further enriching my therapeutic toolkit to support individuals facing complex emotional challenges. My multifaceted education and extensive hands-on experience uniquely position me to guide individuals through their healing journey with empathy, expertise, and a commitment to holistic well-being.
