"Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional." ~Haruki Murakami.. Interpretations of events throughout our lives plays a fundamental role in our level of satisfaction in life. Understanding perspective, which shapes our view of the world, is essential in the change process. Because of this understanding I use an eclectic approach to counseling with an emphasis on Cognitive Restructuring to help my clients navigate through life's ups and downs. Working in several different areas of mental health including community mental health, substance abuse, and home- based family counseling has given me the opportunity to work with individuals and families from diverse populations and socioeconomic statuses.

We all have innate needs for closeness, connection, and comfort. Sometimes, nothing is more painful or lonely than feeling like we aren't getting the support and investment from others that we desire. I am committed to helping individuals and romantic partners embrace curiosity and compassion – towards themselves, towards their loved ones, and towards their individual and relational patterns. I love helping partners relearn how to be vulnerable with each other, as well as access and own their individual and shared needs for connection.

Currently accepting new clients in 100% virtual sessions. I take a holistic and somatic approach to working with clients that is interwoven with Somatic Experiencing, Attachment Theory, and mindfulness based practices. This format allows the many layers of your experience to unfold organically, and creates space for any emotions that may arise within session. I enjoy working with clients who are interested in exploring current patterns, processing traumatic experiences, and integrating new ways of being.

I had the honor of serving as the director of the counseling center at Columbus College of Art & Design for 10 years before moving into private practice. I especially enjoy working with artists and creatives, queer folks, transgender and non-binary folks, and neurodiverse folks. Some of the treatment areas I've focused on most include PTSD and complex trauma, sexual violence, childhood abuse, dissociation, anxiety and panic, depression, and relationship concerns. I believe in folks’ own natural and innate ability to learn, shift, grow, and heal, and I see myself as a guide or partner in the process. I highly value client feedback.

You know that "thing" you are going through right now? That "thing" that prompted you to look up a therapist? No need to go through that thing alone. Be it adjustment to motherhood, divorce/separation, employment or college strife, work/life balance, difficult family situations, or concern for the future, we can work through this. Interested in enhancing communication skills, developing stronger coping mechanisms, or processing a difficult time in life? I believe in practical, sustainable methods of treatment. My approach is compassionate but honest. Together, we will identify your thought patterns while improving emotional regulation and self awareness.

Creating successful relationships and lives as an adolescent, adult or couple is one of the central challenges we all face. I am a Gestalt based psychotherapist who works to help clients discover their potential and explore the blocks that may be getting in their way. My work starts with the premise that each of us has within us what we need to live grounded and fulfilling lives. My goal with clients is to help them build awareness to what is occurring in the moment as a springboard for potential change. Through process oriented therapy, I believe we all can get through challenges that emerge in life.

My background includes working with clients on a broad spectrum of therapeutic goals — including substance use disorders, anxiety, depression, LGBTQ issues, anger management and more. My counseling philosophy is based on the understanding that no matter what we have experienced, there is an aspect of us all that is whole and complete just as it is. By continually orienting to this ground of wholeness, I believe we can fundamentally alter our relationship to our problems — shifting them from something that defines us to something that simply needs to be met, understood, and resolved.

I believe counseling is about understanding your strengths and what values drive who you are and the decisions you make. Every person has the tools for success inside of them; counseling and wellness are merely the means to learn how to access those tools. I work individually with clients to help them achieve their full potential.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Columbus?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
