LISW-S, MSSA (Ohio)Therapist
I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with over 25 years of experience in the field of behavioral and mental health. I specialize in treating anxiety, panic, depression and other mood disorders, ADHD, anger management, and trauma.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in social work from Ohio State University and my Masters’ degree in social work from Case Western Reserve University. My training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma Focused Treatment, Crisis Intervention, and EMDR allows me to blend elements from various evidence-based approaches in my practice.
My sessions are client-centered and solutions-driven. I lead with empathy and listen to my clients to understand their stories, family history, and life experiences. Together, we will identify the areas you want to focus on. I will help you build a new toolbox, so you leave each session feeling increasingly empowered and hopeful.
I believe that each person can make positive changes by learning and practicing new skills and strategies to apply in whatever areas of their life they want to improve. I enjoy partnering with individuals, couples, and families to tap into their inner strengths and move forward in the process of achieving their goals. We will take a close look at your situation and your needs and make a clear plan to address them. I look forward to working with you.
