I am a proponent of treating people and not disorders. I take a nonjudgmental approach which I hope is compassionate and respectful. The emphasis is on the creation of an environment where a person feels comfortable processing and exploring the things that need to be addressed. These are key aspects of the humanistic, person-centered approach.
Walk & Talk
Walk & Talk Counseling
Recent research shows that physical exercise can indeed improve mental health. Walk & Talk counseling is an increasingly common approach that takes therapy out of the office and helps to literally and figuratively get the process moving. This method can help to ease some of the pressure of being in an office setting and is especially effective in reducing depressive and anxious symptoms. Walking can also be meditative, people often say that there is just something about the movement that leaves one feeling good after walking and talking.

I offer three options for distance counseling: voice, video, and live text chat. These sessions take place via a free, secure platform. Peer-reviewed research shows that distance counseling is as effective as in-person sessions. I has provided over 5,000 counseling sessions since becoming licensed as a professional counselor in Pennsylvania.
