*Currently Not taking new clients* I work as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, also a wife, mom, & student of life.
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor in Toledo, OH
As a trauma informed clinician I have worked with a number of people who have experienced trauma in their lives better understand and manage the symptoms with the goal to heal.
Using a variety of cognitive based approaches I have supported many clients as they gain control over their anxiety symptoms.
Change can be challenging for anyone. Using narrative, cognitive, and mindful approaches can help clients to manage even the most distressing changes in their life and increase their overall well-being.
Trauma informed therapy allows us to evaluate your history and understand how it may be effecting you now. We can talk through the details of the trauma if needed, or we can evaluate just the connectivity of the trauma to today without rehashing the details of your past. We use the therapy tools best suited for you.
I have a masters certificate in mindfulness and have been practicing mindfulness on my own and in groups for about 25 years. I use what I call an "adapted American approach" with the goal of teaching techniques that fit well into the busy "American" lifestyle. I also utilize MCBT and MBSR approaches to manage a number of mental health symptoms from ADHD, anxiety and depression to sexual dysfunction.
I am certified and well versed in CBT where clients learn that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors all influence the others- and that We have the power to resolve them when they are causing distress in their lives.
Whether it is school, job, end of key relationships, kids leaving the home, even retirement, these big change bring their own unique feelings. Let's face it, transitions are challenging on many levels. We will use a strengths based approach to reduce and or manage the distress big life changes can bring.
I use a variety of trauma informed techniques to help the survivor move forward and find themselves again.
