Welcome. In a time of stress and anxiety, life may seem confusing and the future uncertain. It can be difficult and scary to find a counselor who you can connect with to discuss what is happening in your life and to work with on dealing with personal issues. I am happy that you are taking this step forward.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker & Substance Abuse Counselor in both Ohio and Florida, I have worked with people from several walks of life…children, teens, adults, men, women, military, and civilian…who struggle with mental health and/or addiction issues. I have experience working in many settings including jails, outpatient mental health, drug recovery, industry, construction, in other clinics, and outreach centers. Because of this broad background, I quickly connect with my clients. As a Christian, I can provide faith, or nonfaith-based, counseling that is compassionate, supportive, and interactive.
My goal is to understand what you wish to accomplish through our counseling sessions, to encourage you as you examine your thought patterns, feelings, behaviors, and then to provide you with practical approaches for dealing with the issues that you are facing.

Understands my needs and I have learned new things that I haven't learned or even heard of from other therapists in the past and it's only been my 3rd session. Unbelievable therapist and match for me
