About this Service

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Behavioral Specialist in the State of Pennsylvania with over 30 years clinical experience. I also am a Board Certified Mental Health Therapist in Pennsylvania. My expertise extends into areas of self esteem and co-dependeny as well as drug and alcohol, and addiction recovery. I have also worked extensively with grief counseling,, children on the Autism Spectrum, domestic violence, and healing from childhood abuse, parental alcoholism (ACOA), and or children of dysfunctional families.

I am an intuitive listener, with excellent assessment skills. I can quickly work with you on a treatment plan for improved mental health. I believe in giving some ‘homework’ assignments (educational enrichment) through either bibliotherapy or U-tube videos. I realize most people are working and don’t always have the time to read a book, in these busy times, My clients easily feel connected to me and are anxious to make improvements in their lives, given the support and skills that they need to do so.

I believe in building new skills, such as improved coping skills, improved communication skills (especially in couples and family therapy), and improved boundary skills.

I have a passion for helping clients achieve the kind of success that translates in well-being as the foundation for everything I do. My sense of humor combined with my natural empathy for others helps me establish a safe environment where people are free to learn and grow into a deeper understanding of who they are and how they function, I have also taught church and community workshops on learning dating skills, the Artist’s Way, and the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
