Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (OH) C.o900048
Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor (OH) 07120
I provide discrete, online or office-based counseling/therapy with a belief that our interactions with others are at the core of a fulfilling life. Whether they are brief or lifelong, chaotic or soothing, they keep us a part of something larger than ourselves and give meaning to our lives. For this reason, I treat clients with an approach that encourages understanding and improvement of one's relationships, throughout the different settings of their being.
My journey started 19 yrs ago, while working with adolescent girls in a long-term, residential behavioral treatment facility. Their unyielding spirit taught me perseverance and excellent crisis deescalation skills. I later worked with individuals suffering from drug addiction across multiple settings. As the deep suffering of both mental health and substance abuse symptoms was revealed, I realized a calling to serve in a greater capacity. Through obtaining a Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Cincinnati, I am now licensed in both my home state of Kentucky, and the neighboring state of Ohio, to provide the services.
I treat clients, within the comfort of a private practice setting, offering a warm, nonjudgemental setting with confidentiality and expertise, while nurturing growth. I am passionate about my work and find it a great privilege to participate in each therapeutic relationship that is formed throughout the counseling process.
