I have worked as a Licensed Professional Clinic Counselor, in the state of Ohio for about 11 years. I am currently in a private practice providing both group and individual services and I have experience working with adults, adolescents, and young children. I started out my career working with families and the juvenile court system as a Multi-systemic Therapist in order to help people to be more successful in all aspects of their lives. Tackling difficult topics such as anxiety, stress management, relationship issues, self-esteem/self-care , addictions and coping with them, sexual problems and depression are areas I have worked with clients in helping them to overcome these hurdles.
I have provided services in different environments such as hospitals, in the community for an agency and at a private practice. My eclectic experience has helped me to gain knowledge and be a more effective counselor for my clients. When I started out as a young therapist, I began to understand and respect that multiple aspects of my clients' lives need to be considered in order to effectively provide treatment. I really began to embrace the multisystemic approach which addressed a person's environment, family background, behaviors, thoughts and spirituality and the connection between all of them. I love the idea of developing and nurturing supports systems to help guide the person in dealing with their struggles. I also try to incorporate a family systems approach, cognitive-behavioral, reality therapy, and mindfulness. It really depends on meeting the client where they are at and to provide them with an empathetic experience.
Finally, I embrace solution-focused therapy and try to empower my clients to be motivated to follow through utilize strengths to maintain change. Setting goals, providing a treatment plan specific to the individual's needs and passing on tools that can be useful to overcome whatever the struggle are all apart of my approach. I have a lot of energy, love working with people and believe whole heartedly in the process of change and respect how difficult that can be. Making the decision to reach out is courageous and I would like to begin that journey with you in taking steps to make your life healthier and happier!

I highly recommend Bridgett. She’s exceeded every expectation I have.
Bridgett is an outstanding counselor. She is extremely thoughtful and compassionate and offers very valuable insight and recommendations. She is an excellent listener and is very non-judgmental. She is also extremely trustworthy. She has been tremendously helpful to me. I would strongly recommend her to any potential client.
Bridgett is a great support system. She is always thinking ahead for me on ways to help me reach my goals whether it be podcasts or articles that help me continue to grow and find a more balanced life.
Bridgett is amazing. She's been there for me every step of the way, and is very understanding and patient.
She is amazing. She challenges me in the right ways while always being supportive and understanding. She has offered chat times outside of her normal hours for me and I truly felt like she cared. She has solid advice and recommendations, she regularly gives me assignments that are relevant, deep and personal. I wish she was in my city…I'd love to meet with her in person!
Before entering counseling with Bridgett, my confidence in the effectiveness of counseling in general was weak. I had entered counseling with a few counselors throughout my past and left dissatisfied either due to what I perceived to be a lack of insight or desire from my counselor. Bridgett is not only obviously very educated and insightful but she genuinely cares. To say her effort with me has resulted in real life changing results would be to undersell how she has impacted my life and how I’m dealing with my past trauma. I couldn’t recommend Bridgett more if you’re looking for a genuine, highly intelligent, and insightful counselor to help you.
