My Approach to Helping
I am a dually licensed Marriage and Family Therapist/Social Worker in Ohio. I have 11 years of experience in mental and behavioral health, where I started as an outpatient therapist in a community mental health setting. I have gathered extensive experience and knowledge regarding issues related to mood disorders, anxiety, trauma-related stress, and substance abuse.
I believe that the cornerstone of any therapeutic progress comes down to the relationship between the client and the therapist. With that in mind, my utmost priority is my clients, and I strive to provide a kind, comforting and non-judgmental environment within my therapeutic scope of practice. My treatment approach revolves around the needs of my clients, as I do believe that treatment should be tailored to the individual in front of me. I strive to work with each client on their goals and treatment plans as I am collaborative in my approach, regardless of modality. I have also begun incorporating aspects of Mindfulness into my sessions to help with emotional regulation.
I am an open-minded person who is adept at listening and providing empathy, compassion, and care. Additionally, I have extensive experience working with couples and families, as that has been the bulk of my training as a Marriage and Family Therapist.
