My Approach to Helping
Life's challenges bring us to our knees. At stressful times in our lives, working with a Licensed Professional Counselor, "LPC", helps. Confused, searching for answers, unsure of which way to turn? Call. My Assistant, Elle, answers calls M-F 9-6. Beyond counseling, working with courts, hospitals, and schools is very helpful. I have "been there" -- I "get it". In 1990 as a full-time professional employee of the University of Cincinnati, I earned my Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling (diagnosis & treatment of mental and emotional disorders), then earned my Doctorate (Univ. of Dayton), in my 20s as a full-time UD employee.
