I am an Ohio based Licensed Independent Social Worker with 12 years of experience. I have experience with clients of all ages, from school-aged to older adults and have worked in clinical, community and school settings. I have worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, life transitions, grief, anger and behavioral issues. In my practice I combine a strength based focus with cognitive behavioral and solution focused therapies. I approach therapy from a holistic perspective and will help a client evaluate all areas of their life to determine what is going well and what concerns they have. I am passionate about helping a client reach their goals in an efficient time frame and to build skills to allow clients to navigate life's challenges well beyond our time together. I rely on client feedback to determine what strategies are working and when new strategies may need to be implemented. I believe that no one knows you better than you do and I am committed to helping you find strategies that work and will not waste time on anything you don't believe is helpful. I want to partner with you in building a happy, positive and confident outlook in life and to move beyond any challenges you are facing.
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Compassion fatigue, Aging and Geriatric Issues, Body Image, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Communication Problems, Impulsivity, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Midlife Crisis, Women's Issues, Workplace Issues

Ann is awesome. She’s helped me grow so much over the past year and a half. She’s helped me with my confidence, communication skills, outlook on life/my relationships, and my trust in myself. I don’t know what I would have done without her. Thank you Ann

Ann truly listens to everything I have to say, and I'm always impressed by the teeny tiny details she remembers, weeks and even months after I have mentioned them. I can't believe all the positive changes that have happened in my life as a direct result of our sessions. Thanks for sharing your best tips and tools with me, Ann - you have changed my life!

She was helpful, gave me cues to stop the ruminating and was a great listener
