I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW) in Ohio with 4 years of professional work experience and 12 years in the profession. I have experience in helping people with stress and mental health such as anxiety, depression and bipolar disorders in addition to people adjusting to physical health conditions, varying types of grief, low self esteem, self harm, the many grey areas of living from birth to death, people identifying with LGBTQIA, life changes that leave you questioning everything and not sure how to move forward successfully. I also believe that, for many different reasons, people tend to get in their own way. Sometimes, we just need to sit down and practice some humility and things start to look much different. No matter what it is that is causing your pain, seeking answers for how to move toward a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that journey.

Kira has been the best help I could have come across.

You can tell just by talking to Kira that she really cares and she has everything I would be looking for in a therapist where she listens really well and makes sure that the responses she gives are helpful.

Kira is so bright and wonderful. She brings joy (but not superficial joy!) to hard conversations and I always feel heard around her. She truly takes the time to listen, ask questions, and deduce what is important to her patients.

Kira is incredibly kind and empathetic and truly supports those who are in therapy with her. I’ve never felt uncomfortable in therapy with her which is amazing because I’m an extremely uncomfortable human in general. I highly recommend her, she’s divine.

Kira has a special way of connecting with you. She feels like a close friend, a confidant, yet still being professional. She's really good of making sure you know she’s there for you, and she researched many ways and exercises to help you in whatever specific topic you need help with at that moment.
I’m soooo happy I found her!!!
