Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Hamilton, OH
I have lived experience within this community and with that comes education beyond a classroom. I am familiar with alternative lifestyles, alternative relationship structures, and the stressors that accompany these things. I have always been sex-positive and aim to carry that into my therapeutic services. Having someone who understands the dynamics within this community is not only helpful in terms of knowledge, but can also be a relief in regards to not having to teach your therapist.
I worked in a school-based setting for 3 years. I worked with students from 7-18 years old, on academic struggles as well as mental and behavioral issues. Oppositional defiance, intermittent explosive disorder, ADHD, family issues, gender/sexuality exploration, self-esteem, and life skills training are areas I’ve worked heavily in with kiddos. I do utilize a trauma-focused approach with these clients and encourage family participation from a family systems perspective.
I have both professional and personal experience with anxiety. I understand the different faces it has, the physical symptoms, as well as the mental or emotional. I incorporate a lot of mindfulness, relaxation, and cognitive restructuring when working with clients who experience anxiety. I’ve worked with anxiety in many phase of life, specifically children, adolescents, teens, and young adults. I particularly enjoy working with people who have anxiety about the future and life transitions.
