I most often work with an individual adult or teen who wants healing and growth: healing from trauma and pain, growth in relationships with others and within self. Most clients have a desire for more connection, truthfulness about themselves and their world, peace, and spiritual life. I also enjoy working with couples and families toward better communication and relational health.

*ONLINE THERAPY AVAILABLE* "My mission in life is not to merely survive, but to thrive and do so with some passion, compassion, some humor, and some style." ~Maya Angelou As women we are usually the last on our list- the order is usually kids, partners, parents, family, jobs, friends... then you. All of this and we're barely making it. Why continue to struggle and merely survive, when you can thrive. Depression doesn't always look like tears and pity parties. It can look like overwhelm, anger, unstable emotions, isolation, and anxiety too! Sound like anyone you know? Is it you girl?

Clients I work with have issues with anxiety, depression, teen and adult ADHD and victims of narcissistic abuse.
When I decided to pursue a career as a therapist I did so because I wanted to make the world a better place, and decided to do that by helping one person at a time . My primary approach to mental health counseling is the Person -Centered approach . This means I believe that no one knows you better than you know yourself. It is my job to help you identify goals , improve communication , strengthen self-esteem and develop solutions and coping skills. During the counseling process you are in the driver's seat, I am just a GPS to help you on the road to better mental health. However, I'm not closed to other counseling approaches.

While I enjoy providing care for all, I am especially passionate about working with millennial women & teen girls that have suffered mental, physical, verbal and spiritual abuse that struggle with depression, anxiety, and mood disorders.
Accepting New Patients!!! Madeline Albright said, "It took a long time for me to develop a voice and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent." If you are looking to develop your voice and sense of self while overcoming the pain of trauma, I am here to help. Many times, we as women don't use our voice for fear of not being believed, heard, or understood. We keep our pain inside, and it's not healthy.

I have several years working with the adolescent population supporting trauma work, effective stress management, coaching on assertive communication skills and teaching healthy coping skills.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I am open to a diverse population ranging in ages and ethnicities. I invite clients to join with me to conquer unhealthy patterns and crutches which create feelings of being stuck, defeated and helpless. In therapy, clients will work towards creating a stronger, more confident and independent self. Treatment goals targeting symptoms of anxiety, depression and addressing conflictual relational patterns will ensure a happy and healthy life. My goal is that all of my clients feel 100% supported and confident that they are reaching their goals.

I specialized in child and adolescent development and mental health needs.
I specialize in working with youth and families who have experienced trauma, have difficulty regulating their emotions, or are having difficulties in school. I understand it can be difficult for a child or adolescent to seek mental health services; I use various techniques including play and art to help engage my clients in the counseling process. I make sure to involve clients in every step of the way to ensure that the treatment plan and interventions meet the client’s unique needs. I also offer tele-counseling if transportation is an issue or you simply want to stay home!

I am currently accepting new clients. Life can be very challenging at times. We often take care of our physical health and other needs, but may not focus on our mental health. We all deserve to take a step back and take care of ourselves. Many times depression, anxiety and stress can become overwhelming. Taking time to focus on issues like these can help move life in a much more positive direction.

I enjoy working with clients who are motivated to make changes in their lives or are at least aware of their need to address their current life situation. I like the challenge of assisting people with their self-limiting beliefs that can create anything less than a fulfilled and happy life. I enjoy helping people with their relationships, marital or otherwise and relish working with couples, helping them redefine their differences, improve communication and rejuvenate their intimacy. I have also written a manual that can help couples who are having sexual issues reconnect and re-establish a healthy sex life.

*Accepting new clients.* Evening/weekend availability. In-person or online. I believe therapy can be a beneficial tool to assist those who are hurting, dissatisfied, or filled with uncertainty. Sometimes we find ourselves struggling in our relationships. We may have persistent sadness or worries that get in the way of life. We may have losses that are too difficult to process on our own. Or we may feel our life has just gotten off track. There are many reasons to seek therapy. Do you want to learn and try new coping skills? Do you want to improve a relationship? Do you want help working through a problem in your life? I can help.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Dayton and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
