I am a licensed therapist in Ohio with over 22 years of experience. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including women’s issues, men’s issues, parent-child conflict, depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma, grief/loss, self-esteem, relationship conflict, abuse, stress management, anger management.
My goal is to provide a safe, confidential environment for you to examine the aspects of your life that are not working for you. I will utilize strategies to support you in creating sustainable solutions. My purpose as a counselor is to empower my clients to identify their strengths to face problems and successfully navigate these challenges. I also want to assist you in developing self-awareness and facilitate an environment to help you select more life-affirming choices and to leave negative patterns behind. Together, we can work through your challenges, whether it involves current stressors that interfere with daily life or past events that keep emerging. I want to expand your thoughts on what is possible, to offer you a vision for the future.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and humanism to tailor our dialog and treatment plan. By doing so, I meet your unique and specific needs. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don’t believe in stigmatizing labels.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
