Welcome! I work to create a non-judgmental safe space to make individuals feel comfortable with opening up and making treatment individual to you. Often, we can lose sight of the things that make our life rich and meaningful because life gets messy. I aim to learn about the unique aspects of yourself that make you who you are in order to best treat you. I adapt components of branches of therapy such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and EMDR to meet your needs and develop new and effective strategies. My ultimate goal is to empower you to meet your goals, connect to your values, and feel you have control back in your life.
I work on building relationships with individuals and families across the lifespan to help them feel safe and move forward through the things that tend to get us stuck. My specializations include eating disorders/disordered eating, body-image/self-worth, trauma, LGBTQ+, anxiety, relationships, grief/loss, depression, boundary setting, and emerging adulthood.
I believe in the healing power of humor, equality, and kindness, all of which I hope you will find sprinkled throughout our sessions. Through your choice to work with me, we will work on developing coping strategies, techniques, and therapeutic goals to restore balance and purpose to your life. My degree includes a Master of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Kent State University.
Areas of expertise
Clinical experience and approach
During my time in grad school at Kent State University, I worked with individuals and couples across the lifespan to gain awareness and personal growth. I began my post-collegiate career in 2015 where I worked in the emergency room at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, which my training allowed me to assist a wide-range of mental health disorders and assist families in times of crisis.
Much of my last 4 years has been spent working in the Eating Disorder clinic at NCH; there, I treated both family and individual treatment models for treating eating disorders, body image issues, and various mood, anxiety, and trauma concerns.
In session, I work to create a non-judgmental space to make individuals feel comfortable with opening up and making treatment individual to you. I am to learn about the unique aspects of yourself that make you who you are in order to best treat you. I adapt components of branches of therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, and solution-focused therapy to meet your needs and develop new and effective strategies. My ultimate goal is to empower you to meet your goals and feel you have control back in your life.
I am an EMDR trained therapist.
