I am passionate about sharing what I have learned during my journey of helping others. I provide individual and group supervision to clinicians working toward licensure. Licensure supervision is limited to clinicians practicing in PENNSYLVANIA only.
I received my Master of Science in School and Mental Health Counseling from University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. I have experience with individual and group therapy with adults, adolescents, and children treating depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, crisis intervention, trauma, ADHD, ASD, substance use, familial/relational issues, and other cognitive and behavioral issues. Primary treatment modalities include cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and acceptance-commitment therapy.
Fees are as follows:
Individual Supervision: $70 per hour
Group Supervision: $50 per hour
Public Speaking and Workshops
Mental health research and treatment is constantly evolving. I understand that it can be difficult to keep up with the whirlwind of information and that we all need support in navigating these complex waters.
I offer workshops that are customized to fit the needs of each organization or community. Workshops promote understanding of mental health, personal and community wellbeing, and mental health advocacy.
