Practice Description: As a therapist, I am easy to talk to, I love to use humor when appropriate, and I encourage my clients to be the best they can through perseverance and self-determination. I know it can be uncomfortable sharing with a stranger, so I attempt to make it as easy as possible. It can be challenging to participate in therapy. I work to create a safe, supportive, and productive environment to address the issues that are challenging for you. I believe in the process and have seen amazing changes in my clients when they are willing to step outside of their comfort zone and try something new.


I primarily use Existential-Humanistic Psychotherapy which celebrates the uniqueness of each of us as human beings. It acknowledges that we are aware of ourselves and our world. It also acknowledges that we can change our existence by exploring in depth how we have formed our view of ourselves and the world. Then, we have the choice to keep what supports our fuller living and let go of what inhibits our fuller living.
Existential-Humanistic Psychotherapy also involves the exploration of certain universal themes of existence. These include ideas that we all grapple with, such as:

engaging in life while knowing we all die

finding meaning when confronting emptiness

needing to be in relationship and needing to be alone

wanting freedom while having responsibility

Principles of Existential-Humanistic Psychotherapy:

Supports the exploration of what it means to exist, and what it means to be human.

Supports the sovereignty of each individual’s unique subjective experience.

Supports the intuitive and irrational so we can move into balance with the rational and methodical.

Supports the attitude of being open to include the full spectrum of feelings and thoughts of which human beings are capable.

Supports Maslow’s higher values of being human such as Truth, Beauty and Justice.

Supports people to be more fully alive and vital.

Supports one’s capacity to actualize in their lives fully.

Supports the belief that human beings, if supported to be their authentic selves, will ultimately act in the best interests of themselves, of each other, of their community, and of the planet as a whole.


I provide psychotherapy for the treatment of a variety of issues including: anxiety, depression, issues with addiction, self-harm, family dysfunction, teen counseling and many other challenging life transitions. My areas of specialization include helping individuals, couples, and families cope with substance abuse, anxiety grief and loss, and other health concerns that are having a negative impact in their lives. I have extensive experience working with adolescents as well as substance abuse, and co-occurring disorders.


I hold a masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Holy Names University, and she is a firm believer in a tradition that tends to mind, body, and spirit as equally essential components of our lives. It is an in-depth psychological approach, where we work together to find the root sources of suffering, rather than temporarily treating the symptoms. I strive to encourage my clients to be their authentic selves in order to get to the core of what is driving dysfunctional, unhealthy coping mechanisms.

One of the goals will be to first determine and articulate where in your life you are struggling--interpersonal, work, school, family, marriage--and then to develop steps to relieve distress, create better boundaries, and learn healthier alternatives to your current choices.
