About me

I am a Clinical therapist licensed in Ohio with over 15 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including grief, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is compassionate, non-judgmental and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client centered, mindfulness based cognitive therapy along with grief and humanistic therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I’m almost 60 and have used therapist in my past for various hurdles in my life.
Dina is the best therapist I’ve ever worked with!

I'm so happy I got matched with Dina. She has helped me as I go through a very difficult and challenging time in my life. She asks good questions and makes me think about things from different perspectives.

Excellent analytical skills and you really feel listened to and understood. I need to feel like my therapist is smarter than me, and I know that as long as I’m honest and open, I couldn’t get anything past her. She lets you speak your mind and can pick apart what you communicate in a thorough and understandable, honest and gentle way which is what I value in a therapist. I recommend Dina 100%
