Hello! Congratulations for taking the first step in thinking about entering therapy. Life can throw many curve balls and can be very challenging to even get through the day. Finding the right therapist is the key in developing a stronger YOU!
I am a licensed independent social worker in Ohio with over 25 years of experience. I have received my Masters in Social Work degree from University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Much of my work have been working with individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, anger, parenting issues, relationship issues, LGBTQ identity. I also have experience in working with couples/individuals who are struggling with sexuality within their relationship(s).
My approach to therapy is to provide you a safe and warm place to share your story and to seek ways to help you develop tools to become a stronger YOU. I will be focusing on your strengths and experiences with empathy, compassion and understanding. Each client is unique and has their own story. My therapeutic approach includes cognitive behavioral, solution focused, and trauma-informed theories.
I am also fluent in American Sign Language as 2nd language. I have great knowledge in Deaf Culture and its own dynamics in this hearing world.
I look forward to working with you soon!

I love her and the fact that she offers longer/shorter sessions if needed, she really tries her best to accommodate her patients and tries to focus on your main goals/concerns. She’s very easy to talk to and open up to and always gives you a new way of looking at things
