I am licensed in the state of Ohio to independently practice counseling, and I have training in three different evidence based therapies; EMDR, CBT, and DBT. I have a lengthy history of working with survivors of trauma, and I am able to help clients manage symptoms of anxiety, challenge and test the accuracy of thoughts that maybe causing problems; and help with managing emotions and improving communication. Throughout the course of my counseling sessions, I challenge clients to identify their professional and personal supporters and to not engage in unsafe behaviors. I encourage the clients I work with to learn skills to “fill their toolboxes” with skills so that they can improve their ability to independently manage symptoms and the overcome obstacles they face in life. It is hard work to make changes in your life through counseling and I will challenge you to reach your potential. I will also help you to celebrate your successes when they occur. And they will occur. I look forward to working with you.
