I believe that therapy is a healthy tool when used to help a person recognize the individual's strengths he/she possesses and can serve to empower the person to use those strengths in everyday life. In some situations, it can be helpful for individuals to take a break from their lives and reflect on what thoughts, feelings, and experiences may be causing stress and holding them back from being their best self. Also, in family situations, I believe that taking the time to work on improving relationships will serve to decrease stress in the individual family members lives and create a healthier and nurturing home environment.

More Info About My Practice

I enjoy working with a diverse group of people to achieve positive outcomes. I am passionate about and embrace the work that I do. I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Miami University in Ohio and my Master's in Counseling from Indiana University. I enjoy spending time outdoors whenever possible, which includes running, walking, and swimming. I also love traveling and experiencing different cultures.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have vast experience working with families who come in with concerns such as general communication, marital conflict, school challenges, and substance use. I also have experience working with adults on an individual basis to discuss the challenges within the family and anxiety or mood disorders that they are managing themselves. In addition, I have a background working with adolescents who are experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, past trauma, and substance use.

My Role as a Therapist

I feel that the most impactful experiences of my career path have been through the training I received as a Brief Strategic Family Therapist. I was able to learn family therapy techniques, and also was able to learn many skills that have allowed me to practice as a strong clinician with a highly effective, and evidenced-based skill set. I have had the opportunity to work with both adolescents and adults in family therapy and this has helped me understand what is necessary to achieve positive outcomes with both populations. Through the supervision and mentoring that I have been fortunate to receive, I have become more self-aware of how others may perceive me. Because of this, I have been able to become more assertive and effective with certain guests. I believe that a therapist needs to be genuine, nonjudgmental, and show guests positive regard, but I also believe that part of being genuine is sharing honest reactions with guests.
