I have been a practicing therapist for almost 30 years. Many have asked me how I do my job - "listening to people's problems all day". For me, it an honor and a privilege to help someone work through a troubling issue and find balance again in their life, providing support and compassion through the process. I work with individuals and couples; male and female; age 5 years and up. My practice is general and broad based. A few specialty areas are children and adolescents; parenting; anxiety; women's issues; depression; working through life changes; grief and loss; coping skills; geriatric issues.

Growing up in a poor neighborhood and being raised by a single mother has shaped my perspective on community mental health empowerment. Some people believe that poverty destroys individuals. However, I witnessed first-hand, how the lack of effective mental health treatment destroys a whole community. Frustrated with the deteriorated mental state of my community, I decided to DO something about it! Opening Evergreen Empowerment Group is my solution to this global community mental health crisis. Together we will explore mindfulness and commitment to value-based living through self exploration and healing.

Reaching out for help can be an overwhelming process that requires you to be courageous and vulnerable. When you are feeling sad, disconnected, hopeless, and uncomfortable in your own skin, the obstacles you face may seem hard to overcome. You have now taken the first step towards wellness and it is no longer out of your reach. I am glad you are here, especially if you may be feeling stressed and trapped in a world that just does not understand.

Going through any change in life is a challenge. It is perfectly normal to have feelings of doubt, uncertainty, and ambivalence. I truly believe that people are the expert on themselves. This allows me the opportunity to learn about each individual's unique experiences and provide an objective perspective. In doing this, it is my goal to assist each person in exploring different future options to help them achieve their best self. My promise to my clients is that I walk alongside them to offer support while making those changes. Ultimately, my hope is to make myself obsolete so that you become your own therapist.

What type of Willoughby Hills 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 Willoughby Hills?
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.
