I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from The University of Akron in Ohio. I have over 13 years of counseling experience working with a wide range of clients and needs including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. My approach to therapy is solution-focused and goal-oriented, working collaboratively with my clients to help them tackle current struggles and recognize their own resiliency, while improving their self-esteem. I frequently use concepts of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to teach you the connections between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and to find ways of challenging negative thinking.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Eating disorders, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Depression, Coaching, ADHD
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
