Hello & Welcome!
I am committed to assisting clients to discover pathways to healing and wholeness, while learning to live lives that are fulfilling, meaningful, purposeful, abundant and balanced. I received my academic training from College of Mount Saint Joseph on the Ohio and Xavier University and am licensed as both a Professional Clinical Counselor – Supervisor, Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor – Clinical Supervisor. I am also trained as an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapist and am a Traditional Usui Reiki Master. My goal is to help you understand the unhealthy patterns in your life, so you can face life with a sense of curiosity rather than fear.
I draw from both personal and professional experiences to connect with people in an authentic way. I have a passion for helping people, and have received training in some of the most effective therapy techniques available for one reason: to help people heal. My intuitive approach to counseling is gentle, warm, lighthearted, practical and creative. I can be best described as genuine, nonjudgmental, grounded, supportive, direct and honest with my feedback and observations. Whether working with you, you and your partner, or your child, I will honor your unique personality and values. It is important to me that both youth and adults feel respected and understood when they are in my office.
I am trained in traditional models of therapy, including cognitive or solution focused therapy, motivational interviewing and dialectical behavioral therapy. However, as a continual life learner, I have also been drawn to forms of therapy that compliment traditional psychotherapy and address the entire person--mind, body, emotions, creativity and spirit. I find that mindfulness practices, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Reiki powerfully unite these pieces of the healing puzzle. I will help you to become aware of irrational thoughts or mistaken beliefs in order to stay centered within difficult situations, increase your awareness of the dynamics of family-social-work -relationships, and guide you toward making your own empowered decisions. As you tap into your inner wisdom and innate abilities, you will begin to create the kind of life you really want! Whether you prefer a traditional or more holistic approach, I will tailor strategies to meet your individual needs.
