My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Ohio. I studied counseling because I wanted to help others maintain their mental wellness and regain their mental health during difficult times. I view mental health as a normal part of life. As such you don’t have to seek my services only when you are struggling. You could come to counseling to discuss issues, feelings, and matters of your everyday life or to organize your ideas or gain clarity about your life or aspects of your life. You can also come to therapy because you are struggling with anxiety or adjusting to a new dynamic or event in your life.
My counseling approach is eclectic. This means I take into consideration my client’s needs, goals, and values and use approaches that would best help my client. I draw from different disciplines that have proven to be effective. Some of them are client-center therapy, existential therapy, expressive arts therapy, relational-cultural therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to name a few. I also used a trauma-informed lens in the work I do. More so now that all of us are processing and still dealing with the effects of the Pandemic.
