5 years of experience

Greetings! I am a 2020 graduate of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland Ohio with a Masters in Social Sciences Administration. I have my independent license through the Counselor Social Worker Marriage and Family Therapist Board (CSWMFT) in Ohio. I have experience in community mental health where I served as an intake worker diagnosing and treating individuals with many types of mental health diagnosis's. I am trained as a Guardian Ad Litem, Forensic Custody Evaluator, and also do contract work for level II PASRR review where I travel to psychiatric hospitals and psychiatric units to assess patients. I have also worked in private practice as a therapist over the past few years.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I want to help the best I can and in order to do that you can expect an assessment for the first appointment. The assessment consists of my gathering a background of information from you and we come up with treatment plan goals and interventions together.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My greatest strength is to be supportive and normalizing feelings when struggling. It takes a lot to get to this point and to trust someone to hear all the issues that are concerning for you. I appreciate a chance to help!
