A Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I received my bachelor's degree from Ohio State University and my master's degree in mental health counseling from Springfield College.
For 12 years I have been providing counseling and coaching to people from diverse backgrounds with a wide variety of issues. Before entering private practice in 2009, I worked in outpatient and residential treatment centers for people with mental health and substance abuse issues. I have seen people with seemingly insurmountable problems overcome their struggles and create meaningful lives. My experience as a therapist has strengthened my faith in the power and resilience of the human spirit!
I have specialized training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and TIR (Trauma Incident Reduction). My therapeutic approach is tailored to each person's unique needs.
In an atmosphere of warmth and trust, I develop a genuine connection with my clients, making sure they feel heard and understood. Together we decide what changes need to be made; whether it be healing from past wounds, learning coping skills to deal with current challenges, or charting a new course in life, my clients receive unconditional respect and support throughout the process.
I am happy to speak with you by phone or connect via email to answer any questions you may have before scheduling an appointment.
I accept many insurance plans and offer affordable rates, including sliding scale fees.
