As a therapist I enjoy meeting clients where they are and together designing a plan of action that will put their life in line with their goals. I use a strengths based, solution focused perspective. I help my clients learn tactics of cognitive behavioral therapy that they can use comfortably to obtain desired results in their life. I use a variety of family therapy techniques to help my clients understand relationships within a family. From this analysis, the client can safely explore these subjects and work towards resolution of the issue. I hold a Master's Degree in Social Work from The Ohio State University.

I believe in the power of play. My passion is working with children from two through 12 years of age. Since 1992 I have used play therapy to reach clients of all ages. With children, toys are the words, and play is the language. In the playroom, the child has the power to work through life experiences and feelings. Play therapy is foundational in helping clients express feelings freely through drawing, painting, or sand tray without fear. My counseling goal is to connect with clients of all ages, build self-esteem, and find tools they can use each day to overcome life's challenges.
