I am an independently licensed social worker (LISW) for the state of Ohio. I have over 10 years of experience working with children, adolescents, families and adults. I have worked in hospital, community, office and school based settings. I began my career working in the inner-city schools with at-risk children. For the next few years my experience focused on working with kids and families related to trauma/abuse and integrated care (mental and physical health). In 2012 I expanded my experience working with adults in a hospital setting to provide psychosocial assessments and group therapy. I started private practice in 2015 and have enjoyed working with children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly.
I utilize a strength-based, solution-focused and collaborative approach. Treatment is tailored to the individual by using a variety of different types of therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Therapy (TFCBT) and more. I believe in increasing awareness, developing cognitive diffusion, identifying values and improving mindfulness for clients to live a rich meaningful life. I am able to use a Christian based approach to counseling for those who are interested.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
