I am an independently licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) and a Chemical Dependency Counselor Assistant (CDCA) in the state of Ohio. I received my Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling May of 2012 from Bowling Green State University. I treat older teens, college age and adults of all ages.
I believe in respecting my clients for who they are and meeting them where they are WHILE guiding them through the change process to make the emotional, cognitive and/or behavioral changes that they came to therapy for. I also believe that my clients are the experts of themselves while I am the trained and skilled professional of mental health treatment – I trust that we need to bring our expertise together to collaborate on how we are going to help you to move closer to your own goals and values.
I have been in private practice since 2017. Prior to coming to private practice I specialized for over 5 years in the program development, individual therapy and group treatment of Eating Disorders at the higher levels of care.
I also did an undergraduate internship working with adult females at a residential drug and alcohol treatment facility. I was a Victims’ Advocate for a year helping survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, sexual harassment, and/or stalking. I then did my yearlong graduate school internship working with children, adolescents, and their families – doing individual, family, and group therapy at the agencies and through the local schools.
I am experienced and trained in Eating Disorder treatment, Trauma treatment (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Prolonged Exposure for PTSD, and Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, EMDR (level 2 trained) and Drug and Alcohol treatment. I also treat Emotion Regulation issues (both Over-Controlled and Under-Regulated)..
I am trained in and utilize the following evidenced-based treatments, depending on the client’s needs: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Solution-Focused/Strengths-Based Therapy. I provide a non-judgmental and safe environment. I also teach a lot of skills and provide a lot of education.
I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you TRANSFORM and THRIVE!
