Sasha earned her B.A. in Psychology from West Chester University of Pennsylvania and is currently finishing her M.S. in Mental Health Counseling at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Sasha has experience working in acute inpatient hospital settings providing services to individuals struggling with substance abuse, depression, anxiety, trauma, and self-harm, among others. Sasha is also interested in helping people manage struggles related to ADHD, grief/loss, and life transitions. Sasha draws from cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, positive psychology, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, existentialism, and creative arts to help her clients achieve wellness.
To achieve personal goals, Sasha helps her clients identify their unique strengths, empowering them to develop an increased sense of self-esteem and confidence. Sasha believes that self-care is a diverse topic that can include personal hygiene, daily routines, organizational skills, time-management, rich personal relationships, playing with pets, physical activity, creative expression, but most importantly self-respect.
Sasha has an informal, playful, and honest interpersonal style that allows her to genuinely connect with others and she encourages this same sense of freedom in her clients. At her core, Sasha believes that every person has the tools within themselves to achieve the life they want to live and she is simply here to help her clients access that potential.
Sasha is currently available most weekdays and has flexible evening and weekend hours available by appointment.
