I am a licensed independent social worker who has been practicing in the state of Ohio with over 15 years of experience. My work with clients in a variety of settings in both one on one settings, group settings and hospital based care. I have had specialized training in Dialectic Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavior Therapy and various treatment modalities utilizing our family system as a key component to success.
My clinical experience has allowed me the opportunity to treat individuals with depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, abuse, life changes and family conflict. I believe the client is the expert on themselves and I will only serve as a collaborative and empathetic guide as you discover new parts of yourself that will ultimately allow you to strive. Life is too short to live in a way that is not fulfilling or satisfying.
I hope that you allow me the privilege to come alongside your journey, even just for a while...
