I am a therapist and Certified Eating Disorder Specialist and Supervisor who has provided services in Cincinnati for more than 7 years.
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Cincinnati, OH
I was introduced to ACT approximately 3 years ago and have experience running ACT groups at the higher levels of care. Additionally, I continue to read and research this approach and how to apply interventions to variety of mental health challenges.
CBT is my primary therapeutic approach. I have researched CBT for many years and have successfully integrated this into my daily work with clients at different levels of care.
I have completed DBT training and for more than two years ran DBT groups in the partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient levels of care, focusing primarily on applying interventions to eating disorders. I have integrated DBT into my therapy practice since the beginning of my work seven years ago.
I have been studying eating disorders for more than 20 years and treating these disorders for 7 years at various levels of care. I am a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals and provide supervision to other professionals seeking this certification. I have had the privilege of watching many clients be released from the grip of the eating disorder and regain themselves and their lives.
A majority of the clients with whom I have had the honor of working have struggled with some form of anxiety, including generalized anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and panic disorder. I utilize a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach to assist clients in identifying the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and am currently completing coursework to become a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional.
