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.
I am a Masters Level Counseling student, as well as a Licensed Chemical Dependency 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.

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.

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!

Maya Angelou said, "You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them." Our youth and young adults today are faced with unique challenges their families and loved ones could not have prepared for. Do you or your teen struggle to cope with the events happening in their life? I offer support, tools, and guidance for kids and families that are having difficulty navigating this challenging time. A healthy future can be possible. I also offer EMDR to help with trauma experienced by clients.

Specializing in women & teen girls.
ONLINE & IN PERSON "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?

I also enjoy working with couples and families toward better communication and relational health.

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.

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.
