More about me
Years in Practice: 0
In life we often experience hurdles that we may find more difficult to overcome or move past. While some are more resilient than others, we all find moments when we're unsure what may be holding us back and we need to discuss and process these moments with an objective, unbiased person.
I thrive on helping those who want to improve their overall well being as well as those who just need an objective sounding board for issues. I feel it's important to build a therapeutic relationship that allows people to feel comfortable with being open, honest and able to share things that may feel frightening, scary and/or uncomfortable. While we cannot change our history, those experiences shape the person we are today and may also be the culprit for unwanted feelings and behaviors. While exploring these things may not always be necessary; a person should feel comfortable with sharing and I strive to create that atmosphere in an unbiased therapeutic relationship.
I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with a Supervisor designation from Ohio. I have worked in mental health with a wide variety of ages and cultures since 2009. Prior to obtaining my Master in Social Work from The University of Cincinnati, I obtained a B.S. from The Ohio State University in Child and Family Relations in Human Development. I have a worked with children and families since 1994 and I am currently employed with the Department of the Army providing mental health services for active duty soldiers.
No matter how big or small the issue, it takes courage to ask for help. I look forward to helping you find the strength and courage to move on and become the optimal person you strive to be.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
