About Me

I am a counselor licensed in Indiana and Ohio with over 7 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, addiction and recovery, stress management, and family relationships. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive with some humor and sarcasm thrown in for good measure. I believe in treating everyone with respect, compassion, and empathy, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing styles. I will work to tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique needs and goals.

It takes some major courage to seek a more fulfilling, healthier, and happier life. Change is not always easy but the effort can be well worth it. If you are ready to take the next step, I am here to support you.

I look forward to working with you!
