I have worked therapeutically with individuals, couples and groups for five years. My professional background is in chemical dependency, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have found that my experience in the recovery process applies to many issues people face, and I value the practical aspects of change. Licensure and international certification means that I have met substantive post-graduate and continuing education criteria.
I graduated from Chatham University with a Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology. I trained at the Gestalt Institute of Pittsburgh from 2011-2013. Gestalt Therapy is an expressive, action-based approach to growth, which supports an individual’s ability to notice self in the moment and understand one’s meaning-making process. This is a collaborative process between therapist and client.
Areas of expertise:
Positive Psychology is the study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive. We believe that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play. The Pittsburgh Center for Positive Psychology is dedicated to approaching therapy as a means to becoming an even stronger version of oneself, not just a way to return you to your baseline functioning. We are also committed to utilizing psychological techniques that have been well researched and shown to be effective. Specifically, we draw from a combination of Gestalt Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Interpersonal, and Cognitive Behavior theories.
