Hi! I am a licensed independent social worker from Cincinnati, OH. I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2018 with my Master's in Social Work.
I'm currently working in addiction/ mental health services. My focus right now is on addiction, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and overall self-love and self-esteem.
I decided to become a social worker to provide others with what I wish I had growing up. I didn't have much support and had to figure everything out on my own. Sometimes, all people need is someone to talk to and a little therapy to give them a push in the right direction. I want to guide you and give you the necessary tools to set you up for success. I am very straight forward in my approach while still being understanding and showing compassion. I'm looking forward to working with you!
Additional areas of focus: Stress, Anxiety, Trauma and abuse, Anger management, Self esteem, Depression, Compassion fatigue, Abandonment, Codependency, Communication Problems, Drug and Alcohol Addiction, Impulsivity, Self-Love
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy
