About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Pennsylvania working as a therapist in mental health and substance use disorders. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, substance use disorder, and childhood trauma. I have also helped many teens and adults who experience low self-esteem, and who struggle with body image/self-love.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, strengths-based, and solution focused approaches. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.


I look forward to working with you!

Andrea is incredibly empathetic and a great listener! She has offered great advice and has already begun to really help me in just a few sessions. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great therapist!

Andrea is very understanding, but also helps me to see where I could make some changes. She makes good suggestions and so far, my sessions with her have been really helpful. I would definitely recommend her.
