About me

I am a licensed clinical counselor in Ohio. For over fifteen years, I have worked with adults with addiction, anxiety, grief and depression. Many of my clients experienced past trauma, family conflicts, and issues with motivation and self-esteem.

My vision of counseling is to come along side the person who is hurting to offer understanding and encouragement as you share your story so that together we can figure out a plan for moving forward. My counseling techniques emphasize behavioral strategies and interpersonal skills, while drawing on the tenets of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT emphasizes living and engaging in life according to your values so that you make intentional choices and feel better with the choices you make. My overall approach is person-centered, and our interaction will always be underscored by respect and genuine care.

We want our lives to matter, and we want to be important to those we love. Being seen and heard is crucial, and sometimes, just feeling understood for a moment is priceless. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to work with you here in this forum!

Elizabeth helped me navigate some of the most challenging moments of my life. I started working with her during COVID and am so grateful for her guidance and thoughtfulness as I navigated losing my job, moving to a new state and healing my relationship with my parents. She met me where I was and helped me build out the tools I needed to move forward.

She is a top-notch therapist. I’ve never asked for therapy services before but she’s the first that I want to actually continue talking to. A very good listener and very understanding. 10 out of 10.
