As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Clinical Social Worker in Gerontology, I aim to help adults and older adults stop struggling with difficult emotions and start living a life that aligns with their values.
Prior to becoming a Clinical Social Worker, I received my Master’s in Social Work from Edinboro University. During my graduate degree I worked as an Admissions Coordinator for a group of outpatient mental health and substance abuse facilities. I interned with a substance abuse outpatient program, an adolescent outpatient program, an eating disorder outpatient program, and then finally with a hospice. I loved hospice and decided to make that my career following graduation. While working as a Hospice Social Worker I obtained my clinical license and decided to switch gears to focus on clients one-on-one. I enjoyed working with older adults so much that I obtained a Clinical Social Worker in Gerontology certification.
Though I enjoy working with older adults, I also love helping younger adults reach their goals as well. I have experience with helping those who struggle with eating disorders, body image issues, substance abuse, LGBTQI+ issues, and more. I utilize Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with elements of other approaches. I take a non-judgmental stance and am sensitive to all lived experiences. I offer a safe place to work through difficult thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
