I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Ohio and Kentucky with over 10 years experience providing therapy. I have worked in several settings including outpatient drug and mental health counseling, residential therapy for children and families, school based therapy, psychiatric inpatient and psychiatric emergency room. I have worked with a wide range of issues including addictions, severe childhood abuse/trauma, attachment issues, parent-child issues, PTSD, personality disorders and serious mental illness.
In the outpatient setting, I often worked with families and that work focused a lot of the various dynamics of relationships, including partnerships. Life is hard and stressful and our closest relationships can be the most daunting and difficult to navigate at times. Working on honesty and communication is the beginning of helping a relationship. Sometimes processing the end of a relationship can be necessary part of therapy and I am able to help couples do that with love and respect.
My counseling style is engaging, warm and focused on meeting clients where they are. Having collaboration in the therapeutic relationship is very important to working together and finding solutions. Mutual respect, trust and understanding is the underpinnings of our work together. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy and motivational interviewing in our sessions.
Choosing to better yourself through therapy can be a difficult decision, but I am confident when you make that decision, we can work together to explore and process ways to accomplish your goals. As scary as starting can be, I have found that once you do, its can be a wonderful and helpful process. I truly believe that every person has worth and purpose, which means that we can all improve and better ourselves.
I look forward to working with you!
