Hello and thank you for reaching out to ask for help. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Ohio with over 20 years of experience working in community and hospital settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, parenting special needs children, and managing the struggles of being a caregiver to the geriatric and chronically ill population.
My therapy style is casual, warm and interactive. I believe in treating every client with respect, sensitivity, and kindness. My approach combines solution-focused and cognitive-behavioral theories to best help the client. I have helped clients who have had emotional and physical trauma in the past. I will adapt our sessions and create a treatment plan that focuses on your identified needs.
It takes courage to reach out and take the first step to make your life more fulfilling. If you are prepared to take the first step, I am ready to provide support and empowerment to you.
I look forward to meeting you!
