"I'm a graduate of Case Western Reserve University with a Master of Science in Social Administration with concentration in Mental Health.
I specialize in treating those with chronic mental health conditions that limit quality of life. I use many evidence based treatment modalities that include DBT and CBT.
I value the individuality of each person I encounter and recognize that no two people are the same. Treatments are centered around the goals that you create with my guidance. You are in control of your own journey...
"My personal journey and experience, is why I am committed to helping you"
I'm so glad you are here and really look forward to working with you. My role is to meet you where you are at in all aspects of life and help you grow to where you want to be. I have had amazing opportunities to work with individuals, couples, and families of all walks of life and in all stages of life. I've worked with family/couple issues, trauma, depression (including maternal), anxiety, criminal justice involvement, and everything in between. I am very LGBTQIA friendly and accept that everyone's journey is different and find value in the diversity we all offer.
I hope to work with you soon. I want to be someone in your life that you walk in the door and say , “Wow. I needed this today.” (I had a client say that a couple months ago and it was the best feeling ever!) The past five years of my career have been spent working with the criminal justice, addictions, mental health, and other high-risk adults. I have obtained my Trauma Informed Care Certification and I am a Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor in Ohio. I am currently working on expanding my eating disorder treatment knowledge.
"I really enjoy my cat naps and chasing the neighbors dogs. I also like to invite strange cats in my home to share my food dish".
No, my owner didn't shave me bald...I was born this way! I love to cuddle in order to stay warm. I'm very needy and need constant attention or a newly folded pile of warm laundry to climb under.
