Therapy involves resource and skill building, identifying longstanding patterns of thought and relationships, and determining what is useful now. It is being present with self, situations, and circumstances and making right decisions.
Our goal is to align mental, physical, and spiritual values so that life is manageable and optimistic. I believe in the infinite wisdom of each person who comes to me for support and guidance. My role is to listen carefully and provide a sounding board to connect people with what they know is true. In my years of practice and continuing education, what I value most is the uniqueness of each person and the trust they instill in me to join them in their journey.
I utilize trauma informed, narrative, and cultural relational approaches to support and assist people managing relationships and life transitions as well as serious mental health issues and addictions. My work is rooted in the integration of body-mind-spirit for whole-person recovery.
My education includes a Master’s degree in Creative Arts Therapy from Hahnemann University and a Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education from State University of New York. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board-Certified Dance/Movement Therapist with over 35 years of professional experience.
I’ve worked in inpatient and other institutional behavioral health settings providing direct service, management and administrative services, for 20 years before starting private practice and consultation to community-based organizations.
I am also an Adjunct Professor at Drexel University, and an Approved Clinical Supervisor providing clinical supervision to graduate students, new professionals, and seasoned providers.
