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 also in two convenient locations in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, and one location in Fayette County, so let's start this journey together, close to home.
