I have worked therapeutically with individuals, couples and groups. My professional background is in chemical dependency, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, as well as, an International Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I hold a Certification in Gestalt Therapy from the Gestalt Institute of Pittsburgh. 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 Masters Program in Counseling Psychology. I trained at the Gestalt Institute of Pittsburgh. 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.
