I am a Licensed Social Worker with supervision designation (LISW S), with an additional certification as a transplant social worker (CCTSW). I am a trauma-informed clinician and am LGBTQ friendly. I have a passion for transparency, honesty, and wellness. So often we find ourselves in the trenches of life, overwhelmed by the transitions life brings. Therapy is a partnership between you and I, an opportunity for you to navigate your life with my collaborative support as you seek a sense of peace and wellness in your life.
I have supported countless family’s navigating complex illnesses at Nationwide Children’s Hospital by providing therapeutic support. I have provided grief counseling to patients, parents, and families. I support families in the adjustment to illness and new diagnoses, provide attachment based support as moms and dads adjust to parenthood, and support medical staff navigating secondary trauma. I have also worked in infant mental health and have spent the bulk of my career focused on the wellness of moms and babies. I am also an instructor at The Ohio State University and provide clinical supervision to newer clinicians.
