About the Counselor

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor currently practicing in Pittsburgh, PA. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh and earned my Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. In addition to my degrees I have specialized training in mindfulness, cognitive behavioral techniques, motivational interviewing, and sandplay.

I work from a holistic perspective, which incorporates physical, mental, and social wellbeing. I note the importance of complementary treatments alongside counseling services to achieve the best version of self.

I work with a wide range of emotional issues including, but not limited to: Identity, Addiction, Sexual Health, Codependency, Relationship Challenges, Men’s Issues, Veteran’s Issues, Post-Traumatic Stress, Anger Management.

I work from down to earth, holistic approach to help clients energize the emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, and social aspects of their lives. I recognize the interconnection of these different areas as a vital part of living a full life, and as a part of addressing roots of interpersonal issues. I am passionate about helping others achieve their own personal goals through collaboration and support.
