I enjoy working with clients of all ages to build safer relationships. This is a place to learn how to communicate well and gain strength through self-care as well as stronger family and community connections. I am also LGBTQ+ identified and celebratory and enjoy supporting individual and family journeys toward greater understanding of sexual and gender identities. I partner to facilitate safer and more joyful spaces with Transgender and Gender Expansive folks (because we deserve it) and am excited to support open, polyamorous, ethically non-monogamous and other multiculturally diverse relationship and identity spaces.

Life can be pretty horrible sometimes, leaving you feeling hopeless, isolated, angry, and afraid. LGBTQ+ persons are at a higher risk for mental health struggles such as depression, anxiety, and suicidality, yet they are less likely to pursue treatment out of fear of rejection. It is my goal to walk beside you through everything life is throwing at you, from mental health concerns, to relational conflicts, to identity exploration, to spirituality questions, providing a safe space for you to face your demons and move towards health. Just by exploring your options, you are already taking a brave first step.

You are struggling to reconcile your past with who you are today. An unaddressed traumatic event. A childhood you wish you could change. A parent whose actions you don't understand. Shame is beginning to control you, and the reality of your past is impacting your relationships and quality of life today. You aren’t confident that therapy could help, but at this point you're willing to try anything. You are deserving of the time and energy it takes to heal. As your therapist, I hope to help you hold in tension the reality of your past, while encouraging you to find hope for your future.

I provide counseling and consultative services. With the help of my colleague, Mark Shively, we also provide training using biofeedback technology. As a counselor, my role is to listen, discern strengths and vulnerabilities, and invite growth/advancement from those placing trust in my care. As a consultant, I strive to provide fair/impartial answers (in the manner of a scientist) to posed questions. Cognitive-behavioral training can address many thought patterns, behaviors and physiological states (such as stress).

"Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we'll ever do." (Brene Brown) Relationships teach us what to believe about ourselves--whether we are lovable, worthy, and good--and what to believe about the world around us--whether it's safe and trustworthy. When the relationships are hurtful, it becomes unsafe to rely on others, and we begin to believe the negative stories we've been told. Asking for help is daunting and courageous, and you're here taking that step! Together, we will dive into your story so you can own the truths and put the falsehoods in their place while learning to love yourself.

Your quarter-life crisis deserves to be met with compassion and understanding. Maybe you feel stuck repeating the same patterns that aren’t working, or you’re not sure whether you want to keep showing up to a relationship, job, or church that doesn’t meet your needs. Maybe you've been feeling isolated from your community because of changes in your life or your beliefs. You just know that you feel overwhelmed and disconnected from what your life is supposed to be like. You want something in your life to feel meaningful and to make sense.

Life is a journey you take toward owning your story. Unfortunately, we often encounter obstacles that distort our perspective and hinder our ability to see ourselves accurately and move toward the things that bring us the most joy and peace. Whether you’ve been derailed by traumatic life events, disordered eating, depression and anxiety, addiction, grief, spiritual abuse, or other life altering transitions, it is my belief that you have the strength and resiliency to find a meaningful life living into the fullest expression of who you are.

Additionally, I have expertise working with transgender teens and young adults, or those questioning gender identity, supporting them wherever they are on their journey.
Are you or your child struggling to cope with anxiety or a difficult life transition that’s creating feelings of hopelessness and overwhelm? Getting support through therapy is a gift that will provide a positive, lasting impact. Therapy fosters connection and attunement, naturally resulting in an increase in self esteem and integration of your authentic self.

The people I work best with appreciate my love of neuroscience and how brains work, along with my sense of humor and lightheartedness. Often, we feel like something is wrong with us but when we explore our experiences, personality, and needs, what we are experiencing begins to make more sense. Once it makes more sense to us, it’s easier to communicate these things to our loved ones. For many people, this means they can leave behind the weight of what they experienced and transform their suffering into connection.

What type of Cleveland 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 Cleveland?
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.
