About My Clients

I work with individuals who have been impacted by trauma, anxiety, depression, Autism/ASD, ADHD, LGBTQIA+ related issues, and interpersonal issues. Working with autistic adults is my passion, including those who suspect they may be autistic. As someone who is autistic and was diagnosed in my late 20’s, I understand these challenges on a deeper level. For this reason, I am committed to creating spaces to support and empower other autistic folks.

My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in Ohio. I also hold certification as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Board Certified – Telemental Health Provider (BC-TMH). I earned my BA in Psychology at Ohio University in 2013, and my MEd in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Kent State University in 2016. I enjoy using creative interventions to support you in meeting goals we will develop together as a team. I believe that following only one model or approach can limit our work, so you will notice that I integrate many approaches into our work together to ensure we meet your individual needs. Some of the approaches we may utilize together include trauma-informed care, mind-body practices, affirmative therapy, intersectionality theory, neurodiversity and acceptance perspectives.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that the most important part of therapy is creating a safe space for my clients to feel comfortable sharing about their experiences. Without this therapeutic relationship and level of trust, we cannot begin to heal from our experiences. I also believe that our identities and experiences with the world can have a significant impact on our lives, and that we cannot ignore how these factors play into our mental and physical health. I am dedicated to making sure all clients have access to a safe therapy experience that respects and honors who they are in the healing process.
