Current Availability is Limited. Starting therapy is a major life decision! It takes courage even though you may be scared or unsure of what to expect, you are ready to start the process of self-change. I believe in taking a holistic approach to working with each client on an individual level, focusing on their specific needs, wants and goals. I am a direct, honest and straight forward therapist. Accountability is key. I attempt to create a casual and relaxed atmosphere, that is safe, inviting, and makes you comfortable for you to share. I am trained in alternative therapies such as hypnotherapy and EMDR.

The number one “rule” we therapists follow is autonomy for our clients – you lead the sessions, make your decisions, and allow yourself to have space and time to unburden yourself. Of course, we therapists are there to assist you through this journey. Mental health therapy is a journey to explore and become self-aware of the whys of what we do. My goal is to guide you through that journey when you need assistance.

It is my goal to create a warm, safe, non-judgmental space where clients can tell their stories, gain insight into how life events have had an impact on them, and learn healthy ways of coping and walking through life. I believe it is important for an individual to find awareness of the root causes of their issues, learn to manage their emotions, and implement practical solutions into their daily lives. It is amazing to watch people find hope and healing in their lives and relationships, achieve goals, and break cycles of dysfunction. If you will trust the process and do the work, you can find peace and healing.

Let's be honest, starting the journey to self-care and therapy is a major life decision, and it can be scary. I am here to help you on that path in any way I possibly can. I am a Licensed Social Worker (LSW) that's been in the field for over 20 years and am a certified hypnotherapist. After graduating from Wright State University I went on to work as a juvenile probation officer, in a community mental health clinic, at a suicide hotline, and as a counselor. I specialize in treating adults and adolescents who are struggling with substance abuse, anxiety, depression, trauma, anger management, self-esteem, personality disorders & ADHD.

Online Therapists

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
