Why I became a therapist

Our identities have been sculpted and influenced by what societal narratives say our lives are "supposed to be". I believe that human struggle and periods of transition are a natural part of life that can oftentimes make us feel as if we are living a life that is out of our control. Through self-exploration, strength identification, coaching, and supportive guidance, therapy can help to transform difficult experiences into rich opportunities for growth, healing, and change.

Background & Experience

I have been working in the Philadelphia Non-Profit sector since moving here in 2010. I have experience managing Corporate and Youth Mentoring programs through Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region, and running a College Access and Success program at Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School. I'm originally from New York, and have been happy to call South Philly my home for the last nine years!
