About My Clients

I offer real help for real concerns. Are you ready to transform or is there a story you tell yourself that holds you back? The therapeutic process helps one to edit the story by way of finding a new perspective. I invite you to enter a collaborative, supportive relationship to assist during transitions such as relationship concerns/break-ups/divorce, bereavement, other life transitions, professional and personal growth as well as clinical concerns including ADHD, anxiety and depression.

My Background and Approach

I work from a holistic, person-centered, Gestalt approach. I have several years of training at Cleveland State University and the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland. I have a PhD in Counseling Psychology, am certified as a Gestalt psychotherapist, and licensed as a Professional Clinical Counselor with Supervision status in the State of Ohio. I am a therapist at RnR Therapy and an adjunct professor at Cleveland State University. I am available to serve as an off-site supervisor for counselors working toward their independent licensure as well as providing counseling services. You can expect confidentiality, non-judgmental support, unconditional positive regard, therapy tailored to your specific needs, helpful tools and positive outcomes.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that the therapeutic relationship in itself is healing; the gift of therapy is in the relationship between the therapist and the client. I truly believe in the Gestalt premise: “Change does not take place by trying coercion, or persuasion, or by insight, interpretation, or any other such means. Rather, change can occur when the [client] abandons, at least for the moment, what he would like to become and attempts to be what he is” (Beisser, 1970, p. 77). A large part of my clinical work is to increase ones’ toolbox so they have coping strategies. I believe we are all doing the best we can with the tools we have and are striving to present as our best version of self. While behavioral approaches are helpful in addressing automatic habits, using a Gestalt approach increases self-esteem, self-acceptance, and new ways of being in relationship with one’s environment thereby promoting positive change and wellness.
