About My Clients

You may feel like you're the only one who can't handle all of life's demands, or everyone else has it together. You're afraid you'll never be able to reveal your true self and be accepted. What if you show up and you're rejected? I want you to know you are worthy of love and happiness, and I care deeply about those who feel they don't fit society's norms. I know you can achieve amazing things, and I'll teach you tools to release anxiety's grip & the inaction of perfectionism.

My Background and Approach

The tools I will give you are the ones I've used over my 20 + years of experience as a counselor. I specialize in Mindful Self-Compassion, which teaches you how to ride the wave of emotions, rather than putting on a band-aid. My goal is for you to have several ways to mindfully manage difficult feelings of overwhelm wherever you are, so you know you can get through any tough moment anywhere. I believe you are the one who knows best what direction your life should take, and it's my role to help you feel empowered to do just that. We'll address what has led to your belief you must be perfect to be loved, and how to tap into parts of your brain that will relieve you from your anxiety and pain. My approach often uses humor and suspension of disbelief, along with gently challenging your stuck points. I'm laid back and want you to share all of those pieces of yourself you may keep under wraps for fear of judgment. Let's make anxiety release its grip from ruling your day to day!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

At my core, I am passionate about helping propel our culture forward to become a more inclusive and aware society. I'm a member of Ohio Counselors for Social Justice, and actively participate in volunteerism locally to advocate for and support the LGBTQIA community and women's issues (including the need to connect with and be more inclusive of women of color in the feminist movement). I am also a huge animal lover, and recognize that the connections we have with our furbabies can be more integral to our well-being than those we have with actual humans. I believe that music can be a huge way to discover what moves you and to commune with others, and seeing it live is my idea of church. I also love to travel, and see my adventures as a way of widening my worldview and creating new bonds. Being in nature is another way to help heal, and I offer walk & talk sessions outdoors if you are so inclined.
