I'm a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Ohio and in the State of Florida. I'm also a Registered Art Therapist. I've been a practicing Counselor for about twenty three years. I know that seeking counseling takes courage and a willingness to be vulnerable. I'm honored to support you on your journey of personal growth.
The focus of my work is humanistic and client-centered. Basically this style emphasizes the importance of being your authentic self in order to lead your most fulfilling life. I work to have an empathic understanding for my clients.
I typically work with clients that have issues with anxiety and depression. The interventions that I use are mindfulness and CBT based. I'm comfortable working with clients that are coping with transitional life issues such as divorce, loss, major illness, career transitions, low self-esteem, family problems, and post partum depression.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I'm married and we have a grown daughter, a cat, and a dog. I also enjoy walking and doing yoga. I'm an avid meditator and I've found this practice both professionally and personally beneficial in my life.
I look forward to supporting you and helping you to feel better.
