Originally from the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA, I obtained my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Boston University. After working for several years at an inpatient psychiatric facility for adolescents, I moved back to Pennsylvania to pursue a Master's in Social Work from West Chester University. Upon graduating, I began working with adult violent offenders recently released from prison, while also facilitating Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills groups at an inpatient facility for members of the Catholic clergy. In 2016 I helped develop a private practice that specialized in providing Comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy for adolescents and young adults struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and severe suicidal behaviors. It was through these various experiences that I developed my nonjudgmental, acceptance-based therapeutic approach. I see each of my clients as strong, unique individuals who - with the proper support - are capable of creating the lives they want to live.
In 2018, I decided to take all of my clinical experiences - along with any belongings that would fit in my Mini Cooper - and follow my own advice: live the life I wanted to live by moving across the country to beautiful Park City, UT. When I am not providing therapy, you may see me out exploring the trails, walking my dog Milkshake, or purchasing more books than I have time to read.
