I am so glad you are here. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Ohio with 19 years of work experience. I have worked in private practice with individuals, families, and couples. I have also worked in hospitals, schools, community mental health centers, prisons, juvenile detention, nursing homes, and religious organizations. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, family conflicts, relationship issues, substance abuse, teen issues, grief, career counseling, & domestic violence.
I use a warm, open, and non-judgmental approach to counseling. Using cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused therapy, I can help you recognize self-defeating thoughts and make positive changes. I work alongside you to help you take steps to become the best version of yourself, work through hard times, and meet your goals. Our therapeutic relationship is of the utmost importance to me.
We all have our triumphs and struggles. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage! I am here to support you in that process and I look forward to our journey together.
