Hello! My goal is to provide therapy in a relaxed and natural environment that encourages you to be your unique and authentic self.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Annville, PA
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with community mental health experience in the Family Based delivery system. Because of this, I have a strong Strategic Family Therapy influence, as developed by the Philadelphia Child Guidance Center, with significant training time spent with Wayne Jones, PhD. I have also completed trainings focusing on Attachment, Non Directive Play Therapy, Sandtray, Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, and couples counseling.
My Masters level education was steeped in SFBT where I received training from colleagues of Steve DeShazer and Insoo Kim Berg. Although my sessions may not always follow the traditional SF structure, the basis of using strengths to develop goals and work toward a preferred future are at the core of my approach.
Women have been drawn to my strengths based, safe space, approach. As a woman who is open to reflecting on my own journey as wife, daughter, sister, and mother I am prepared to be curious and honor each female clients unique experience.
I tackle anxiety from a neuro psychology based approach. I am able to offer psycho education and help clients manage anxiety/alter responses to their environment.
