About Me

Hi! I'm a friendly EMDR-trained trauma therapist in Armstrong County, PA (serve clients in Westmoreland & Allegheny counties, too!). I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). I currently offer individual therapy, couple's therapy, & group therapy for young adults struggling with low self-esteem (not EMDR-based). If you would like to schedule an appointment with me, please call my agency's main office to schedule an intake - (724) 543-2941 - & request to be referred to me during the intake. There may be a 2-3 month wait as I currently have a full caseload.

Education & Experience

I have a M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from IUP (2017) & a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh (2015).
