~ Not Currently Taking New Appointments ~
I began my career 20 years ago as a liaison for children with disabilities, facilitating communication between families and schools to ensure that children received the highest level of care possible. From there, I shifted my focus to family systems, incorporating more support for the adults in children’s lives. I found a passion for grief work during my employment at Highmark Caring Place: A center for grieving children, adolescents, and their families. I remain connected to Highmark Caring Place through volunteer work and I am a registered volunteer for the Emotional Support Hotline through the New York State Office of Mental Health.
I studied at the University of Pittsburgh where I earned both a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in education, going on to complete an additional master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
