Psychology

  • I have been providing psychological services in the Morgantown and surrounding areas since graduating from WVU. My unique background with training in psychology as well as counseling allows me to holistically assess and treat the specific needs of each client. I am trained using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Family Systems Therapy and see clients for a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, stress management, loss, trauma, divorce, relationship issues, life transitions, and gender/sexual orientation concerns. I provide individual as well as couple's and family therapy. I thoroughly enjoy helping clients make changes they wish to see in their lives. I believe that a trusting, authentic relationship between therapist and client is paramount to healing, therefore collaboration and building rapport with my clients is deeply important. I also utilize an emotional support dog to assist in making the therapeutic experience more relaxing and enjoyable, as well teaching self-care and relationship skills. The office is conveniently located in Westover, with easy access from I79 and/or the downtown area of Morgantown. The location provides ample parking, a private, comfortable setting as well as beautiful views of WVU's downtown campus.
  • "I offer counseling services to couples, individuals, and young adults. I have been a psychologist with over 13 years of experience. I help you draw on your strengths, foster emotional resilience, and reshape your relationships to live more fulfilling. I will help you gain insight into your behavior, origins of your feelings, and break unhealthy habits. Working with couples, I help each person recognize unhealthy patterns and communication skills. I'll then guide both partners to make changes within the marriage so that both partners can thrive and grow together as a whole to have a more fulfilling relationship together. With my encouragement, you'll identify barriers that keep you stuck, release emotions that weigh you down, and make empowering choices that free you from the past and create a promising new future."
  • With over 25 years as a practicing psychologist, I have learned that it is not just the latest techniques that help people change, but being deeply understood in a trusting therapy relationship. My aim is to help you not only to recover from your immediate emotional problems, but to explore the interpersonal blind spots that contributed to their development so that you can find more fulfillment and satisfaction in your life. As a couples therapist, my goal is to help you rebuild friendship and intimacy while learning tools to manage and resolve conflict more effectively. I am committed to understanding the source of your problems so that we can find effective long-term solutions. Within this in-depth approach, I use tools from cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal and mindfulness practices. As a marital therapist, my approach integrates training in object relations therapy & the Gottman's model. I have extensive post doctoral advanced psychotherapy training and have been active in training & education therapists on various faculties.
