Life is difficult. I would like to help you learn how to find ways to cope with life's stressors and negative emotional states while increasing your feeling of being connected. Counseling can be a wonderful resource in speaking to someone who supports you and is unbiased in their feedback and suggestions. The purpose of counseling is not just to feel good when you leave, but to feel as though you have the insight and tools you need to improve your life. I will help you do just that.

Welcome to the "Center for Revolutionary Relationships". Inviting clients to hear their own voices and identifying their own strengths, talents, resources and resiliencies is the foundation of my collaborative therapeutic process. We do not exist in isolation. We live in various systems. We are made to influence and be influenced by everyone around us. Therefore, in order to have a healthy "we", one must have a healthy "me". Taking all these influences through a "systemic" lens with children, individuals, couples and families allow for these multiple realities to be integrated harmoniously. Thus creating balance, wholeness and healing within yourself, your relationships and your environment!

When it comes to individuals that are faced with the challenges of anxiety, stress, depression, relationship and self-esteem issues, I find it helpful to incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapies such as reframing our thoughts, practicing radical acceptance, breathing and grounding exercises in addition to mindfulness approaches, and art therapy techniques in order to get a better understanding of the parts of us that are masked by the anxiety, depression, or stress. Together, we will work on identifying the underlining parts of you that may contribute to these overarching feelings.

What type of Akron mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Akron?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
