Hello! I am a licensed counselor in Ohio with over 20 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns and ages. I have addressed specific clinical concerns such as: anger management, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities, low self esteem, and ADHD. I have also helped many people who have experienced trauma and abuse. I have provided relationship counseling and family support for most of my career.
My counseling style is supportive, empowering and empathic. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dbt, motivational interviewing and reality based counseling. I think the most important part of being a therapist is accepting and meeting someone where they are. I value and appreciate those that are new to counseling and want to take things slowly as well as those that know exactly what needs worked on and want to dig right in.
I value and respect each person that decides to work on themselves. I am blessed to have been a part of many people's journeys. I'd like to be a part of yours!
Years of experience:
Graduated from Wilmington College in Ohio with Bachelors Degrees in both Psychology and Criminal Justice. I graduated from Heidelberg College with a Masters in Clinical Counseling.
