I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (PCC), and I earned my Masters of Education from Xavier University. I have more than 15 years of experience working with children, adolescents, couples and families.

My goal as a counselor is to create a supportive environment in which my clients can begin to understand their struggles, while also discovering what barriers may exist that are affecting their lives. Many of the clients I assist are working through various life challenges, including anxiety, depression or grief. Others need guidance around relationship difficulties, substance abuse or anger.

My approach is warm, non-judgmental, conversational and solution-focused. Using Cognitive Therapy, Reality Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), I focus on the here and now to help my clients find solutions. Clients who visit my office find a very comfortable atmosphere that offers a safe, supportive place to talk. Flexible appointment times are available to address these issues.

I earned my Master of Arts in Agency & Community Counseling from Xavier University, and my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Wittenberg University. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (PCC), and I have worked in the mental health field for nearly 15 years.

I believe that each person has the power to make positive choices and the ability to transform one’s own life. My goal is to facilitate growth through a caring approach that balances processing core issues, exploring feelings and making a plan for change. Therapy is a collaborative process and through hope and hard work, personal goals can be realized.

I have therapeutic experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families. Additionally, I specialize in treating individuals and families attempting to cope with ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, autism spectrum disorders and anxiety. Conflict is common in families, and I focus on helping families improve their pattern of communication and put into practice more effective coping strategies.
