Hello, and thanks for viewing my profile! I have been practicing as a therapist for 7 years and am a Licensed Professional Counselor. My primary areas of expertise include: Depression, Anxiety, Obsessions and Compulsions, Guilt, Grief and Loss, Trauma, Relationship Issues, Oppositional & Defiant behaviors, Life Coaching, Career Counseling, Vocational Discernment, and Christian Counseling.
I received my Master's in Counseling from Franciscan University of Steubenville, and have worked in a variety of settings. These have included working at a trauma center, on a college campus, in client's homes, in the community, in schools and in more traditional outpatient settings. My treatment methods include but are not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, EMDR, Trauma Reprocessing, Guided Visualization and Motivational Interviewing.
My goal in working with you is to instill a sense of hope, even in the midst of the pain and difficulty we all experience dealing with life's hurts and disappointments. I would like to help you to work on improving your life in the here and now and if necessary process past hurts and traumas that may be contributing to your current struggles. I look at each client as a unique individual who requires tailor made and personal treatment. This means that each person I work with receives individualized treatment designed specifically for them and their unique circumstances and history.
I accept clients of all ages for individual and couples counseling. I do ask that clients under 12 years old have a parent or guardian present and participate fully in the therapy process.
