About My Clients

I know that there are real difficulties that led you here today, together we can find real relief. I will listen to your story & together we will work to resolve your unique challenges, step by step, at your pace. World events have been disruptive, unsettling, & traumatic, & you may be facing new/intensified problems. I excel in aiding adults & teens who are exhausted, down, overwhelmed, irritable, anxious, survivors of trauma/abuse, and/or have problems relating to others. Walk with me today.

My Background and Approach

Taking the final step to begin therapy is often very difficult. Many folks will stop just short of reaching out to a therapist. Many clients tell me they long delayed starting treatment because they were worried that therapy wouldn’t really help them, or that it will take too much of a time commitment, or because they just didn’t know what to expect, only to quickly realize that therapy can be extremely helpful, that they need, can, and deserve to take this time for themselves, and that they really wish they had reached out and begun treatment sooner! You deserve to be heard, to address your problems, to find relief, to heal. When you are ready, I’m here for you, and I’m looking forward to meeting you. I specialize in treating survivors of abuse and trauma. I am especially clinically skilled & sensitive to the specific needs of survivors of sexual abuse and assault. I recognize the often profound impacts of traumas & my approach to treating them clearly reflects that understanding.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that creating a warm, trusting, and welcoming relationship with each and every one of my clients is critically important for their effective treatment. I genuinely care for the people I treat, and I strive to create a safe, welcoming, empathetic environment for them to heal, grow, and change in pursuit of improving their mental health and overall well-being. I am experienced in and very much enjoy working with clients from diverse racial & cultural backgrounds. I pride myself on providing competent and culturally sensitive care. In particular, I have a strong focus on providing culturally competent psychotherapy services to many members of Pittsburgh’s African American and LQBTQIA communities.
