I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Ohio. I have more than 20 years of experience in the field of mental health and substance use services. My expertise includes working with individuals, couples, adolescents, adults, and older adults. I specialize in depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, care-giver stress, and addiction issues. I am experienced in mental health issues, trauma, and dual diagnosis.
I take a client-centered, solution-focused approach utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Systems and Family Theory and many other therapeutic methods. My purpose is to listen to what you would like to get out of therapy and assist you in building the plan to reach that goal. My vision is to gain an understanding of who you are and where you want to be. I will then work with you to develop skills that will assist you in coping with, and/or getting past, your challenges.
