Thank you for being here. Counseling is a journey, and you’ve already taken the first step. It’s my hope that, during our time together, you will find your inner resourcefulness, and feel empowered to make the changes that you desire.

Pronouns: He/Him/His

My approach to counseling is rooted in the humanistic tradition of person-centered therapy. I believe that you are the expert on your own experience, and that my role as a counselor is to sit with you, listen to your story with a compassionate ear, and reflect back what I hear. Together, we will sort through the patterns that keep you from living the quality of life that you want, and develop plans that better meet your needs. I believe that the therapeutic alliance is instrumental in facilitating change, and I look forward to getting to know you as we work together. 
Currently, I’m a second-year master’s candidate enrolled in Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s clinical mental health counseling program. After experiencing a layoff at  the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to take the opportunity to change careers and become a counselor. Throughout my program, I’ve had the opportunity to work with clients in both individual and group settings. It’s an honor to be trusted with your mental health, and I’ll work diligently on your behalf.
