About Me

Hey there, I'm Brandy! I am a clinical social worker licensed in Ohio with nearly 10 years of therapy experience. I have worked with a wide range of diverse clients who desire to make changes in their lives. I have collaborated with clients to center change around anxiety, depression, stress management, relationship issues, family concerns, grief, self-esteem and effects of trauma and sexual assault.

My personal counseling style is warm, relaxed and conversational. I believe in partnering with clients to meet them where they are to work towards most effective change. I believe that no one is beyond help to make changes and that each person deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. I honor the privilege it is to enter into professional relationships with clients and hold space for them that they may not otherwise have in their day-to-day lives. It is important to me that all clients feel cared for and valued while sharing their stories, struggles and successes. My approach combines solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral techniques and motivational interviewing to best reach the desired change. All sessions are tailored to meet client needs and outcomes from the process.

I look forward to meeting with you and working towards rewarding change!
