Announcement icon 216-543-4891 to talk. I'll listen. Supportive therapist, licensed in Ohio, ready to help you with anxiety, trauma, transitions. 20 mins free
You are as unique as your fingerprint. I am a therapist that will honor you and customize treatment to suit your needs. I will listen deeply, encourage and advise within my scope of practice. You will benefit from: tips on relaxation training, suggestions for deeper relationships, anxiety and depression coping strategies, and support after traumatic events. I have a grasp of the world's religions -- if faith is important to you. With coordination and consent, I can work with the rest of your health care team. My office is accessible to all and filled with books, poems, and music.
I am a therapist with a broad perspective on the world, including multicultural sensitivity. My parents were immigrants after the ravages of World War II in Europe. I have a historical and sociological perspective while using behavioral treatments, positive psychology, and more. My style is warm and encouraging, not distant.
Hope? I believe you can rekindle it in time, despite struggles. You deserve an advocate! A wellness coach! And cost should not stop you. Let's negotiate what you can afford. "Put your mental health first." -- Dr. Abraham Low, Recovery International. Now's the time.

Shine Brighter Writing and Counseling's Groups

Mourning Your Mom

No matter what age you were when you lost your mom, with that loss you "lost part of yourself." This supportive group will allow for mutual listening to stories, shared memories, and honoring the woman -- the real person -- who brought you into this world and/or raised you. Please attend if you are ready to share with others the journey you are on, kindly listen to others, and move forward together.

More about this group

Writing to Heal, Healing to Write

"The pen is mightier than the sword," and sometimes we do need power tools to help us work through changes, losses, and move forward to activate our potential. This group -- which can be divided into subgroups -- is open to any woman in transition. You may be a new mom; you may be a career changer; you may have a chronic illness you are striving to accept. Come to the group to write, to share your writing, to read inspiring writing, and to enjoy support and compassion. We will strive to recharge for the coming week.

Veterans Moving Ahead

There are many resources available to veterans, and this group's uniqueness is its emphasis on positive psychology, goal setting, and moving ahead. I completed internship experiences at a veterans administration facility and feel that affordable coaching and relaxation training should be among the services readily available.
