I am a licensed clinical counselor in Ohio with 20 years of professional work experience. I specialize in working with children, teens, and families. My experience includes, but is not limited to, depression, adoption, school/social anxiety, effects of social media on mental health, trauma, parenting, and relationships. I gained this experience through my work in community mental health centers, foster and adoption agency, in the school setting, and intensive home-based counseling with families of at risk youth. Although my identified client base has typically been children and teens, I also did a lot of work with the parents, and other family members, of those youth, as the mental well being of children is dependent on the well being of the parents.
Having worked in the foster care system for more than 15 years, I have extensive training in identifying and treating trauma. Our mind and body's response to trauma is fascinating and the studies are ever evolving, as we continue to understand the healing capabilities through treatment.
My approach to the counseling process is very individualized to the client, as I understand that no one approach works for every person or situation. I work with my clients to identify their strengths and needs. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
