Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

Welcome to Awareness and Wellness, I am happy you have made it to this point! Though there is a diminishing stigma with seeking mental health treatment, it is still a huge step to decide to seek the help you are needing.
I believe that the most key aspect of a successful treatment is the therapeutic relationship. There must be a level of trust and comfort shared if goals are to be met. In order to help you decide if I am a good fit for you, I’ll tell you a bit about me. I have been counseling for the last four years, with experience in substance use treatment and mental health treatment. I have worked with adults, children, and teens. I particularly have worked with many issues involving:
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • ADHD
  • Emotional regulation issues

I graduated with a specialization in trauma and Christian counseling. I have undergone comprehensive training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and hold licensure as a professional counselor in both Pennsylvania (LPC) and Ohio (LPCC). On a personal level, I have a great love for people, and I consider it an immense blessing and privilege to dedicate my professional life to serving in this capacity.
