Y Counseling's mission is to provide personalized, high-quality care on an as-needed or preventative basis.  Options of Counseling or Life Coaching to support clients needs. 

I have been counseling for 19 years.  In private practice for 6 years, I am new to the Altoona area as my family recently moved and the travel to Clearfield, PA from Altoona home turned out to be difficult in our many winter months of Pennsylvania.  With this in mind I have found office space in Altoona and am working to build an active practice in the area to support the mental health of the community.

I work with clients from the age of 18 to 60.  I utilize many therapy styles, based on clients needs including:  Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Sand Tray, and Reality Therapy.  My years as an addictions specific counselor taught me to focus on people's strengths to help them flourish.  I believe each of us is created to become the best version of ourselves.  If you are ready to work on becoming a better version of yourself life coaching is an option.  If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma then you may meet medical necessity criteria to have a 3rd party payer offset costs of counseling.

In 2012 I added the ScreamFree Certification, able to facilitate both parenting and marriage programs.  Change your relationships!

In 2013 I added a certification in Trauma.   This certification allows me to utilize tools for trauma recovery, and supports  my continued education in helping people recover from trauma.  I am humbled to add Certified Clinical Trauma Professional to my credentials.
