I am a licensed Social Worker in Ohio. I am passionate about helping others and using my experience and skills to assist others through their unique struggles. I help others through a variety of approaches including a holistic approach. I believe in looking at all aspects of your life: mind, body, and spirit. I received my master’s degree in Social Work from Walden University and got my undergraduate degree from Bowling Green State University. I have been practicing in the field since 2018. I have faced various struggles in my own life and am here to help you navigate your life and reach your full potential! I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, and the purpose is to guide you to increase self-awareness, gain new perspectives, decrease symptoms, and increase personal strengths to have a more meaningful life experience. My approach is to provide support, without judgment, to help you effectively address your personal life challenges. I believe that growth and healing can happen in those “aha” moments and through processing difficulties in a meaningful way. I utilize treatment modalities such as CBT, Solution-Focused therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction therapy (MBSR), Strengths-Based approaches, and Trauma-Focused CBT.
Spirituality is another passion of mine, and I can incorporate that for individuals looking for a spiritual/mindful therapeutic approach.
I have experience prior experience working with adolescents and adults with substance use, grief, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. I enjoy working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and cultures including members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
I believe that everyone’s life can get better! It may take some time, work, and dedication, but it is ABSOLUTELY possible, and I am here to help you achieve your goals.
