20 years of experience as a therapist

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Ohio with over 20 years of experience working with individuals and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns not limited to depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I have a strong background in family preservation and educational advocacy. If you are a parent or individual looking for help, I am the therapist for you. My counseling style is open and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and rational-emotive counseling. I believe in working with my clients to identify small life 'tweaks' that result in big outcomes. I will tailor our conversation and treatment to meet your unique and specific needs. Some people believe that a person who seeks treatment is weak. I believe that a person who looks for help is strong because it means that they have already made a decision to improve their life! It takes courage to seek 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. I look forward to working with you!

My name is Sierra and I am the founder of Power Love Self-Control Counseling (PLS Counseling) and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Ohio. I work with those of us that struggle with personal issues of our daily lives and I have specifically worked with individuals dealing with severe mental illness. I received my BA in Psychology from Kent State University in 2014. From there I completed my MA in Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary in 2019. My approach to working with you is to ensure you are making the decisions each step of the way. I will work with you to achieve the goals you set in therapy. We can all use someone to talk to when things are going great but also when we need a little bit more support. Daily life can be stressful enough, it's good to know someone is there to listen to your concerns, share in your success, and provide a safe space to explore your specific situation. In our first session we will get to know one another. I’ll ask you questions to understand your expectations for therapy. I’ll provide more information about myself and answer questions you may have about the process. Follow up sessions will be your time to discuss any issues or concerns and ways to overcome barriers to your success in therapy.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Upper Arlington counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Upper Arlington.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Upper Arlington licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Upper Arlington, Ohio can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you.
