I am licensed in Ohio with 16 years of professional work experience. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
Having worked primarily in the fields of aging and hospice, I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with grief and loss, depression, & coping with life changes. However, these are not issues exclusive to those fields.
Stress and anxiety are rampant in our uncertain world. Coping with them take skills that you can learn. Or, build on skills you already have. LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER!
Grief and loss are related to many events outside of the loss of a loved one. Loss of a job, a relationship, or independence due to illness or injury are among the many reasons people grieve. Learning to move through that grief takes a tremendous amount of emotional energy. Supports are so important at this time, but identifying them is not always easy. LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER!
Life changes constantly, and often unexpectedly. Those changes can throw you for a loop, even if they are positive. Learning to navigate change without losing your balance is paramount to a happy life. LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER!
Each person’s story is unique and requires an equally unique approach. I believe that you are the expert of your story and we’ll work to find the best approach for you. LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER!
