About My Clients
Oftentimes, people associate therapy with talking about their hardships and all their stressors. While this is a piece of therapy, my philosophy when working with clients, is that this is a time to celebrate YOU! Your wants, needs, various skills, dreams, accomplishments and your inherent value by just being alive! We all experience struggles and have a desire to change and I am here to assist you in processing these changes in an effective way.
My Background and Approach
I am currently a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Ohio. I received my masters degree in clinical mental health counseling at Xavier University. I have worked with a wide variety of diagnoses, issues, and people from various walks of life. I began my counseling career working with children and families, then transitioned to working with adults. I have experience in working with children and families in the outpatient, school, partial hospitalization, and hospital emergency room/crisis settings. I offer a structured, directive style, balanced with warmth and a nonjudgmental stance. I want each client I work with to feel welcomed, respected, and at ease. I welcome everyone to be their genuine authentic self and promise that I will bring that to every session. I believe many of the answers a person seeks to resolve in therapy already have the answer within them. I’m excited to assist you in creating and achieving a life that feels worth living!
