South Park Office Update

We are excited to announce that our South Park office will be undergoing a total transformation in the new year. As a result, the South Park office will be closed starting on January 1, 2024. It is expected that we will be ready to welcome you back to our South Park office in late summer/early fall. All of the staff will be transitioning to either virtual/teletherapy sessions or in person sessions at our McMurray location during the renovation period.   

We will continue to accept new clients who are able to be seen in the McMurray office located at 608 E. McMurray Road Suite 102 McMurray, PA 15317, and new clients who prefer to be seen via virtual visits.

Please note that any inconvenience encountered during the renovation period will only be temporary, and the improvements are all being done with future patient care and comfort in mind. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this time and we look forward to continuing to be with you on your journey throughout 2024.

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 psychologist, 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.  The past few years have been difficult, but you deserve to feel good again.  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, email, or reach out through this website and we'd be honored to try and help!  Our team offers over 200 years of combined experience treating those who wish to improve their mental health.  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 for in person sessions, and we offer virtual sessions also, so let's start this journey together, close to home.
