I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Ohio with 4+ years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including addictions, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and/or emotional abuse.
My therapy style interactive, validating, and welcoming. I believe in treating anyone with kindness, respect, sensitivity, compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing. I tend to be non-directive in my approach and solution focused. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I understand that it takes a lot of courage and strength to make the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
