COVID-19 UPDATE ADDED 5/28/2022

WE CONTINUE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS, BOTH IN PERSON AND VIA VIDEO PLATFORM, 7 DAYS PER WEEK AND OFFER DAY, EVENING AND WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS TO ACCOMMODATE EVEN THE BUSIEST SCHEDULES.  

AS WE NAVIGATE LIFE MORE THAN TWO YEARS AFTER THE PANDEMIC BEGAN, WE CONTINUE TO FACE NEW CHALLENGES RELATED TO BOTH THE CORONAVIRUS AND THE STATE OF THE WORLD TODAY.  ANGER, DEPRESSION, SADNESS, ANXIETY, HOPELESSNESS, LONELINESS, ISOLATION, FRUSTRATION, AND FEAR CONTINUE TO BE PART OF OUR EMOTIONS ON A DAILY BASIS.  THE PROBLEMS THAT YOU ARE FACING ASIDE FROM COVID DON'T HAVE TO GO IGNORED ANY LONGER.  YOU CAN FEEL GOOD AGAIN.  YOU CAN FEEL HOPEFUL.  AND WE WANT TO HELP.  IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS STRUGGLING, GIVE THEM OUR NUMBER.  IF YOU FIND THAT YOU HAVE A SHORTER FUSE THAN YOU DID BEFORE, CALL US.  IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS LONELY, OR PRONE TO DEPRESSION OR ANXIETY, GIVE THEM OUR NUMBER.  IF YOU HAVE BEEN TRAUMATIZED AND CHANGED BY SITUATIONS OF RECENT YEARS, CALL US.  IF YOU ARE FEELING OVERWHELMED, CALL US.  OUR TEAM IS HERE FOR YOU ALL.

STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY AND REACH OUT TO US OR OTHERS IF YOU NEED TO.  IT COULD MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE.

Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, my team and I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

Please call or email for a consultation today. Same day appointments are possible in some cases, and we are open 7 days a week with varying hours each day. We are in two convenient locations in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, so let's start this journey together, close to home.
