Everyone should fill out the forms downloaded by clicking on the top button. Then, click on one of the other two based upon whether I will be doing an evaluation on a child or teen (2nd button) or adult (bottom button).

Directions from Rout 81

Bear right at the light, proceeding up the hill and onto South Abington Road. You will soon pass a CVS, which is on your right side. Just past the CVS is Fairview Road; turn right onto it. 1.7 miles later you will hit Maggies Road (a sign for the Applewood Acres apartments is on the right side); take a left onto Maggies (if you go through an 81 underpass you've gone too far on Fairview).

My Private Practice

304 Royal Oaks Dr., Clarks Summit, PA  18411

(570) 587-2273

 

I treat adults, teens and children in individual, marital and family counseling in Northeastern, PA (e.g., Scranton and Wilkes-Barre area). I also provide forensic evaluations. I have three primary goals (1) To create a confidential, safe and caring atmosphere for my clients. (2) To offer services that are informed by research. And, (3) to help my clients reach their goals as quickly and as comfortably as possible.


I place an emphasis on understanding and reflecting back my clients' strengths and not rushing in with recommendations until I have taken enough time to understand the important issues. I also value collaborating with my clients in forming measurable goals and choosing the methods for reaching them.
