LCSW

Bridget is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in the state of Pennsylvania. She has experience primarily treating adults in both inpatient and outpatient mental health settings. Most recently, her focus has been providing individual therapy for persons facing a variety of challenges—relationships, self-esteem, life transitions, grief/loss, loneliness, impulsivity, poor coping habits, addictions or addiction history, stress and trauma. Bridget has treated a variety of conditions including depression, anxiety, bipolar, personality disorders, co-occurring and dual diagnosis. She is also familiar with the variety of outside stressors that impact one’s well-being, including economic struggles, limited resources and poor support systems. Bridget understands that taking the step to receive therapy can be a scary one, so she works to meet her clients where they are at in terms of goals and needs while providing a safe and comfortable space. She has also provided services to those recommended or required by their employers, probation officers or other third parties, which can make this step even more challenging. Employing a conversational style, Bridget provides an atmosphere for clients to vent and process current stresses, work towards future goals or explore the past to make connections and obtain clarity or healing. At times, she may offer feedback, reflection and exercises. Bridget uses an eclectic approach that may include cognitive and behavioral techniques, humanistic/strength-based, solution-focused, interpersonal and trauma-informed.
