Growing up in Philadelphia, my life has been shaped by the persistence to accomplish my dreams. The source of this persistence and the meaning of this counseling practice is dedicated to my brother. He taught me to accept growth as a way of life. The journey has taught me this is not possible without the undeniable support is what I would like to share with others. My ability to navigate through life with the desire to learn that life's challenges are also life's gifts. Developing my interest through having dogs and barbering have also helped understand the importance of finding peace in growth.
This belief in me has granted me an education from Shippensburg University. I have a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health. My professional experiences is primarily working with adults (anxiety, depression, anger, mood disorders, and substance abuse). I have experience working on varying levels of treatment ranging from inpatient/Intensive Outpatient/Outpatient (substance abuse/mental health). These experiences has shaped my counseling. I have a person-centered approach with experience in evidence-based treatments to develop coping skills using Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness. These approaches have been successful in my ability to provide an environment of growth.
