Individual alcohol/drug & mental health counseling

Hello & welcome! I am an alcohol and drug addiction recovery counselor and a clinical mental health counselor in Newark, Ohio, Licking County. I have been practicing counseling for over 20 years and currently have an online private practice. I specialize in alcohol and drug issues, as well as helping clients struggling with issues in the following areas: depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, job-related, spirituality, family/relationship, life transitions, self-esteem, anger and stress.

I am a licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) in the state of Ohio and received my Masters Degree from Walsh University in Counseling and Human Development. I am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Master Addiction Counselor (MAC) certified through the National Board of Certified Counselors.

I have extensive experience helping those who are struggling with alcohol or drugs.

I am an alcohol and drug addiction recovery counselor and a clinical mental health counselor in Newark, Ohio,  Licking County, Ohio.

My personal goal is to learn from each person’s story and keep an open mind. I will not presume to know or judge you because of your struggles or experiences.


It can be intimidating to start therapy, and I will do my best to respect who you are and what goals you are seeking. I believe therapy should be a two-way street, where we work together to decide how to achieve your goals. Your current emotional struggle does not have to define your future. Working together, my hope is for you to become empowered, educated in your options, and hopeful about finding resolution to your struggle.

My clinical approach is eclectic, motivational, and empowering, pulling from many different theories such as cognitive behavioral, motivational interviewing, and reality-based perspectives. For alcohol and drug addiction, my approach is more of a choice-based philosophy. I believe that alcohol or drug abuse can be a symptom of something deeper, and if the underlying emotional struggle is not addressed, recovery (or maintaining sobriety) could be challenging.
