I am currently working on earning my license in professional counseling under the supervision of Josh Snyder, and I hope to become licensed by 2022. My overall therapeutic approach is genuine and empathetic, with a focus on building a strong therapeutic relationship. In my practice, I commonly integrate person-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and strength-based approaches. I believe in taking a holistic approach, looking at not only mental health but also physical health, spiritual health, intellectual and occupational self, environmental self and the social self.
I have experience working with individuals who struggle with depression, trauma, anxiety, substance use, grief and schizophrenia. I have worked in a partial hospitalization program and outpatient setting. In my sessions, both the therapist and client are the experts. I believe everyone has strengths, talents and skills within themselves that I hope to help bring out and empower everyone that I work with.
I collaborate with clients to set goals that are meaningful to them and feel achievable. I strive to meet each client where they are at when they walk in for our sessions and create a safe environment for them to explore life challenges. I hope that, as a team, my clients and I can strengthen coping skills, problem-solving abilities and create a future that is more inline with their values.
I am a licensed social worker, LSW, in the state of Pennsylvania and I am working towards getting my clinical license, LCSW, while under the supervision of Josh Snyder. I hope to obtain my license by 2022.
I graduated from Bryn Mawr College with my Master of Social Service in May of 2018. My education fostered a critical awareness of diversity and the social and cultural forces that impact individuals, families, organizations, and communities. My experience in providing individual therapy and case management has helped me to understand and apply knowledge of human behavior in multiple social, cultural, and economic contexts.
In October 2018, I eagerly accepted a position as a therapist at an adult partial hospitalization program. I have gained experience working with individuals suffering from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, grief and trauma. I have had the privilege of running process groups and psychoeducation groups with a variety of people. They have taught me how resilient people are and that even the worst traumas can be overcome when you allow yourself to be vulnerable and share your story in a safe environment.
I enjoy teaching others about their attachment styles and how to cultivate self-compassion and heal from codependency. I have a passion for learning and I have completed multiple trainings to further my education regarding the assessment and treatment of trauma.
I have had the opportunity to learn from various supervisors with different theoretical backgrounds including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy, attachment-based therapy, and motivational interviewing. What they have all taught me is the importance of human connection. I know that life can be challenging and sometimes draining, but I hope to provide you with an experience where you feel seen, heard and empowered. I aim to see a person fully and I want to hear their stories and life experiences. I hope to guide you in your journey in growth and healing in a compassionate and non-judgmental environment.
