My clients come to me for a number of reasons. Mostly because they are hurting and in need of intervention and change. I strive to help individuals make positive permanent change through a variety of methods. I practice from a holistic and integrative perspective which includes looking at all facets of the individual’s life and using appropriate interventions to help clients feel better. I focus on anxiety and depression as well as relationships, family conflict, parenting and postpartum. I also have an extensive history working with young adults and college age students.

Through my clinical experience I have noticed that societal pressures, peer pressure and unhealthy dynamics with others in the home, community and school settings have caused youth to rebel, often both internally and externally. Consequences of these behaviors can lead to impaired critical thinking skills, irregulated emotions and a lack of optimism of one’s ability to overcome barriers to a successful future. I utilizes therapeutic interventions to empower clients and encourage them to recognize their untapped potential.

The Affirming Pathways Team is Accepting New Clients! I am Native and a queer identifying therapist and owner of Affirming Pathways. I understand personally and professionally, how important knowledgeable and affirming care is for all. That is why an essential part of my practice is creating a space where you feel welcome, seen, and respected. My goal is to work alongside you in a meaningful therapeutic relationship where you'll feel safe to fully explore areas of difficulty, pain, connection, and growth -without- the strain of not knowing if your therapist acknowledges their privilege or that you'll need to educate on your time.

No matter what our body size, we can find ourselves out of balance with our eating, thoughts, and emotions when we are desperately trying to stay afloat with the demands of life, family, work, and other obligations. Instead of acknowledging what we do well, we may focus on our shortcomings and criticize our abilities and bodies. A vicious cycle of trying to control our weight and eating can lead to further criticism, guilt and disappoinment. At Eating & Behavioral Health Associates, I work with adults of all sizes and body types to find compassion and ease in their life by bringing balance into their thinking, eating and behaviors.

While I have experience working with a range of ages and issues, my speciality is working with teens and young adults struggling with anxiety, depression, and childhood wounds. Many folx who I work with seek therapy wanting to eliminate their anxiety and depression, but often move on with a deeper understanding of where these issues stem from. They rediscover power in their voice and are able to set healthy boundaries. They explore patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors, increasing a sense of self awareness. Folx move on feeling more connected and compassionate within themselves.

Navigating childhood and adolescence can be hard enough for an individual, but it's also tough on parents. There are no manuals that come with being a parent. When one person in the family is struggling, the entire family system struggles. I work with children, teens, and their caregivers on finding the tools to navigate through difficult issues. I am a clinician who is experienced to help with anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, school issues, behavioral challenges, suicidal ideation/self-harm, social challenges, and other mood-related concerns. I believe if the child is thriving, then the family system thrives.

Change, although inevitable, can be difficult and feel ruthless especially when life takes a turn you don't expect. We can start feeling lost, alone and out of touch with ourselves and those around us. Each of us are vulnerable to the pain, grief and the uncertainty of the human condition. In this way, I believe we can each benefit from a safe and non-judgmental space that allows us to put our guard down and encourages us to learn, be flexible and rest more fully into the natural process of simply being ourselves and listening to our own wounds.

Have you always believed you were self-sufficient, able to handle any and all challenges which come your way? Are you usually the person family and friends rely on for advice or directions on how to solve their life issues? But, now you need help resolving issues of your own and your feelings of anxiety, depression and or stress are negatively impacting the relationships in your life. Being able to acknowledge that your life has become overwhelming can be the first and hardest step when beginning a journey of change and healing. The next most challenging step involves trying to determine what to do to get the help you need.

What type of Columbus 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 Columbus?
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.
