10 years of experience
Solution oriented

I’ve worked as an Ohio licensed counselor since 2014. I began working in community mental health in 2012 on a Crisis Stabilization Unit where I received experience in a variety of departments including Prescreening, Emergency Services, Crisis Stabilization, and individual behavioral health counseling. I also have experience facilitating group therapy in the areas of Co-Occurring Disorders and Motivational Interviewing.

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

My job is to help you better understand and define the problems that bring you here for counseling and help you find and employ solutions that work for you.

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

I believe that clients deserve treatment from a counselor who views their work as more than a job; they deserve genuine care, compassion, and respect. I hold the belief that clients should be met where they are and should be encouraged to make positive decisions for themselves in order to promote empowerment and continued motivation for change. I feel that quality and an excellent standard of care should be first and foremost, in addition to continuously improving and seeking additional ways to advance programs and client care.

My treatment methods

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy

I feel that theoretical orientation should be dependent upon the individual’s situation, specific needs, and preferences. That being said, I find that I most commonly employ the principles of Person-Centered Counseling and Rational Emotion Behavior Therapy. Through these theories, individuals can be productive in their own change process. I believe that a counselor should guide individuals throughout the counseling process and should be someone that can provide insight and encouragement. It is also essential to establish rapport and create a sense of openness and safety. The next step would be to explore possible causes for the individual’s symptoms and how they have manifested themselves in the client’s life. The counselor then helps the client develop rational and accurate beliefs about these issues as well as develop skills in therapy that the client can continue to practice after the sessions have ended. I feel that these theories teach the individual skills that will help them view situations in a more productive manner. These theories also involve improving self-esteem as well as a sense of self-competence.
