About Me

Hey there! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Pennsylvania. Born & raised in PA, I graduated with my Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2017. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) who is fully trained & certified in the use of EMDR to help clients struggling with symptoms of trauma (such as flashbacks, nightmares, feeling "on edge," etc.), anxiety, low self-esteem, & many more. I help my clients put the past in the past and learn how to make the most out of the present moment. Outside of being a therapist, I enjoy cuddling with my dogs, reading psychological thriller novels, adventuring in the forest, and spending time with my family & friends.

Education & Experience

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