I offer evidence-based therapy services including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, Motivational Interviewing, components of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, CBT for Insomnia and CBT for Pain.
I offer an active, evidence-based treatment style. When an individual comes for treatment, we start with an in-depth assessment and develop a collaborative treatment plan that addresses the individual's personal goals. Many of my clients show significant improvements quickly as I tend to use a short-term therapy model. These rapid improvements are possible because they take an active role in treatment and incorporate interventions outside of sessions. I specialize in anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD and other trauma disorders, chronic pain, sleep issues and coping with chronic health conditions.

My goal is to help you gain more awareness and acceptance of anxiety triggers.
Do you have a hard time quieting your anxious brain or do you experience uncomfortable physical symptoms from anxiety? Anxiety can show up in a lot of different ways and has been on the rise since the pandemic. The good news is that you can learn strategies to tame your anxious brain. You will also learn that not all anxiety messages are bad. However, you can learn what messages you want to listen to and learn to let go of the false alarms that our fear brains send us.

Mindfulness, self-actualization, and acceptance mixed with a little humor are key motivators in the continuum toward empowerment and positive change.
Taking that first step toward positive change is often the most important and the most difficult. The fact that you are reading this is a good sign that you are contemplating making some changes so you are already making progress! It is empowering to see such changes begin to unfold motivating you toward clarity and acceptance . With over 20 years of experience, I have assisted individuals in overcoming barriers that hold them back from becoming their ideal selves. From adjustment to life-altering changes to post-trauma, grief, guilt, hopelessness, severe mental illness, suicidality and self-harm.

Utilizing an eclectic tool kit of resources my clinical approach is grounded in person-centered, strengths-based theory with the use of an array of tools including EMDR, neuroscience, and solution focused with cognitive behavioral approaches.

Our lives can get extraordinarily challenging and burdensome at times, and we may struggle to cope with the things that are being thrown our way. That can lead to various difficulties and affect our ability to enjoy our lives. As a counselor, I try to demystify the counseling process; in that counseling is a process of self-exploration and at times that can be extremely hard as we discuss issues or concerns you find difficulty talking about. But, with time as we work together, my goal is to support you in your process toward healing and growth.

I am often a good fit for clients who want to integrate a spiritual perspective into counseling. By "spiritual" I mean living authentically, finding deep purpose, forgiving oneself and others, seeing the sacred in the ordinary, and having a daily spiritual practice that keeps growth going long after therapy concludes. With individuals and couples I am known for using creative images, humor, and timeless wisdom to support your growth. Each course of therapy is as unique as the individual or couple seeking help. I'll get to know you and together we'll create an an alliance that supports your goals for personal and spiritual growth.

Many people struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and trauma. They can't find relief for their symptoms, and every aspect of their life is affected.

My clients describe me as caring and compassionate but also straightforward and action oriented. I help people find and accentuate their strengths while letting them decide what is best for them. I also work a lot with trauma and am trained in EMDR.

My therapy style is empathetic, insightful, reflective, humorous and goal-affirming. I have always had a "quirky" sense of humor and I love that I can bring that into session with me. Sometimes being able to laugh or to see the absurdity of life shakes loose the obstacles and anxiety. My initial goal is to connect with you and your experiences in your world, ask questions, provide feedback, and use interventions to rebuild and reinforce your sense of self and your place in the universe.

As the result of my work with a wide array of individuals with a variety of presenting mental health needs, I believe true healing must be viewed from an all-encompassing therapeutic approach that considers the whole person. This includes aspects such as their identity/sense of self, upbringing, traumas, interpersonal relationships, personality, as well as their presenting environmental circumstances. Therapeutic goals include helping suffering persons to find meaning/purpose in their lives, develop more effective ways of communicating/connecting with others, and to critically evaluate their beliefs, values, and choices.

So many times we are held back from being the full and true version of ourselves because of negative thought patterns and misguided feelings that we have about ourselves and the world around us. Becoming a healthy and fulfilled version of ourselves free from societal expectations can be scary. What if I lose people? What if I am wrong about what I want? What if my family won't accept me? What if I fail? What if I can't do it? I am seeing clients of all ages and walks of life to help them become the people that they want to be. I want to provide a space where everyone feels safe to be 100% themselves.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Perrysburg will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
