My approach is empathic, calm, and personalized with a hint of humor to meet each person’s individual needs. Everyone has their own unique life experiences, and with those experiences comes a distinct view of the world. My role is to not place judgment on you or your views, but to treat you with dignity and respect, and help you overcome the obstacles you are currently facing. I care for my clients with a strengths-based approach, which emphasizes individual capabilities and accomplishments.
Over the years, I have gained direct experience working in a variety of settings, with individuals of different ages, races, and ethnicities. Most of my experience has been with adults in the healthcare and criminal justice settings, and I am comfortable working with individuals, families, couples, and groups. During my training at the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, I advocated, counseled, and supported victims/survivors and their families affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, homicide, and human trafficking. In the healthcare setting, I counseled patients and families facing chronic life threatening illnesses, and connected them to community resources to help them get back on their feet. I also helped them manage the anxiety and depression related to their health or a loved ones medical condition, and, when needed, I worked with families enduring the grief and loss of a loved one that had passed away. I have also held support groups for patient’s and caregivers of medically complex patients, specifically lung transplant. Support groups can be an excellent way to connect with others facing some of the same issues that you’re facing, and can be a way for you to help others learn from what you have experienced on your own journey.
I enjoy working with clients that were experiencing some of the following;
difficulty navigating life transitions
I have been and will continue to be a strong ally to the LGBTQ+ community and will continue to advocate and support the community in any way I can. I enjoy creating space for those who at times do not have the space or opportunity to share their voice. It takes courage to begin counseling, especially when times are difficult, but you are not alone on this journey and I am here to help!
