I provide hope, insight, clarity, encouragement, and action steps to those experiencing emotional and psychological distress. I believe that change happens one decision at a time. Coming here is the first step to healing, growth, and wellness. I work with children (ages 11 and up), adolescents, and adults with various issues and challenges. My office is conveniently located in Wexford, PA on route 19.
Most people come see me because they are experiencing some level of stress, depression, anxiety, or relational/marital conflict. Other people see me to gain insight and understanding to a life transition or temporary problem. I provide counseling within a safe, warm, and non-judgmental environment for people to feel validated, understood, encouraged, and hopeful. The techniques I employ are based on each person's specific needs and what I feel would best benefit them. Some of the treatment models I draw from are cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, emotionally focused therapy,Gottman method couples therapy, Imago Dialogue, person centered therapy, positive psychology, and mindfulness. The treatments I use are evidence-based, comprehensive, solution-focused, and goal-directed.
Often, people are reluctant to contact a psychologist because they are unsure of what to expect. During our first session of counseling, I seek to understand you, your needs, and your situation with compassion and empathy. Collaboratively, we discuss treatment goals and I provide insight to your present problem to help you start getting unstuck. At times I am direct and active, other times I listen intently to your areas of concern and difficulty. People leave their first session with hope and a plan of action towards wellness.
I provide treatment for relational/marital distress, depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder/panic attacks, phobias, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), adjustment disorders, addiction, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), difficult life transitions, and anger management.Therapy within a Christian framework is also available upon request. In terms of insurance, I take Highmark and UPMC. Please go to my website, for more information on fees and insurances.
I reside in Pittsburgh with my wife and three daughters. Although I am a native New Yorker, I am a Steeler’s fan, thanks to my wife who is from Pittsburgh. I enjoy reading books on marriage, playing with my daughters, learning, traveling, and dancing. Feel free to contact me for a free consultation and see if I am a good fit for you.
