Welcome to Viaggio Counseling & Wellness!
It’s not easy to find the right therapist, so I hope what I share can make that decision a little bit easier for you.
I am a firm believer in that no matter what we go through in life, it doesn’t have to define us, but it does stick with us. Our past tends to show itself in various ways whether its at work, in relationships, or when you have a child of your own. Whether you have a child that could use someone to talk to, or yourself, now is the perfect time. As a supervisor of a Child & Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program, I get to know many children and really work on relating to them, and acknowledging what it’s like to be a child/teen in these years. I admire the kids I work with so much, because I can reflect back to my child/teen years, and there was no way I was talking to an adult about serious issues!
I am a licensed professional counselor with over 13 years of experience working within many areas of the mental health system. I am licensed in the states of Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Montana, West Virginia, and Delaware. I have worked worked within this program for 7 years. I love that I get to work with children and adults. I feel that it keeps me on my toes and allows me to continuously make connections as to how what happens in childhood can develop into adult issues. My passion for working with women more deeply evolved when I had a daughter of my own.
I am so excited for the new office location and transitioning my online practice, to an in person counseling practice. The office space could not be more perfect for the vision my partner and I dreamed up for years!
I am passionate about providing quality counseling services to my clients, and I do not use one set approach or theoretical orientation. No two people are the same, so my interventions and techniques reflect that. Through my education and experiences, I have an understanding of what may work best for any given symptom or diagnosis, but ultimately you are the expert in your life. I meet each individual where they are at in their life. I believe counseling is a joint process, and I am here to provide guidance, perspective, and I do not judge. Continuing to learn is a passion of mine and I complete in excess of the requirements for maintaining a license.
I hope you make the decision to give counseling a try either for yourself, or for your child. Send me a message with any questions, concerns, or comments and I will reach out ASAP!
