I am a psychotherapist licensed in Ohio with specialty areas in trauma, and serving veterans and their families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, and trauma.
My therapy style is warm, laid back, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical-behavioral, and solution-focused therapy. I will tailor our sessions and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs and goals.
It takes courage to seek treatment and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
