Announcement icon I am willing and able to hold telehealth sessions at this time using video and phone options for all clients.
Brene Brown wrote, "Every time we choose courage, we make everyone around us a little better & the world a little braver." I'm a licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC-S) in Ohio. I obtained my M.Div in 2005 at Western Theological Seminary in Michigan & spent 6 years as an Associate Pastor in Worthington, Ohio. I further obtained my MA in Counseling at Methodist Theological School in Ohio in 2011 & began work in counseling in June 2012 at the Center for Balanced Living in Columbus, Ohio. My therapeutic approach stems from work with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, CBT and Source Therapy. I am also trained in EMDR practice.
I come from a background of work with individuals, couples and extensive group therapy. I bring a specialty in eating disorder/body image treatment but work very broadly with many associated challenges including trauma, depression, anxiety, self-esteem challenges, marital counseling & most other challenges related to mental health.
I provide a safe & non-judgmental environment for my clients as we journey together towards clarity & growth. My goal is the same as what my favorite researcher Brene Brown wrote, "The bottom line: I believe that vulnerability, the willingness to be "all in" even when you know it can mean failing and hurting is brave."

More about this group

Trauma Process Group

For individuals that recognize that the trauma/overwhelm they have had in their childhood (or adulthood) has manifested in ways which challenge their lives. We ALL have trauma in our background. We cope with that trauma by creating "a false self" to manage the overwhelm. The false self then becomes challenging to maintain and then...we medicate. Food, alcohol, drugs, workaholism, co-dependency, avoidance; there are many ways we each choose our way of silencing the noise. The goal of this group is to allow individuals to come with a willingness to do the real work; processing trauma in a supportive and enriching environment.
