What I do
The majority of my practice involves providing individual treatment to adults and adolescents. My main areas of focus include, but are not limited to, mood (e.g., depression) and anxiety disorders, negative body image and disordered eating, and reproductive concerns (e.g., infertility, miscarriage, etc.). While these are my primary areas of specialty, I am also able and willing to treat problems with adjustment, interpersonal and relationship difficulties, career concerns/transition, sexual assault, and a variety of other concerns. In addition to this work, I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology at Dickinson College. I teach courses in Psychopathology, Clinical Psychology, Community Psychology, and Human Sexuality.
My therapeutic style is mainly interpersonal with humanistic and cognitive behavioral influences. What this means is that I take a nonjudgmental approach to helping you improve your relationships, as well as understanding your thoughts and actions, in order to reduce the current symptoms you are experiencing and create lasting change.
Personally, I bring to my practice strong dedication and integrity. I am someone who approaches her work with energy, creativity, and enthusiasm. As a therapist I have been described as warm, compassionate, and challenging. I will do more than just sit and listen, I will work together with you to develop and achieve your goals. I strive to make clients feel comfortable talking with me and my hope is, after creating a trusting, therapeutic relationship, we can work together to help you find your own solutions.
