Life can strip you of any shred of self-worth if you let it. They say strength and knowledge comes from hardship, but damn, I wish it was easier sometimes. Whether you are struggling with drugs or alcohol, depression, anxiety, stress, trauma or other addiction or mood issue, my hope is I can help guide you through your difficult time and get you to more solid ground. My passion is to try to find you where you’re at, understand your circumstances and help guide you to a place you believe will better your life.
I am nationally certified as a Master Addiction Counselor (MAC) and National Certified Counselor (NCC) through the National Board Of Certified Counselors and am a Licensed Professional Independent Counselor (LPCC) in Ohio. I am also a Board Certified TeleMental Health Provider (BC-TMH). I received my bachelors degree In Psychology from John Carroll University in Ohio and my Masters Degree in Counseling and Human Development at Walsh University in Ohio.
I’ve been a clinical counselor for over 20 years and currently work in a private practice. I have extensive life and clinical experience with alcohol/drugs and in helping those who are struggling with an addiction to recover. Having struggled myself with both alcohol and mood issues, my goal is to utilize my experience and education to empower and help you navigate anything you feel is holding you back in life. I believe people have the ability to get through adversity, can change and that one approach does not fit all.
My experience includes: private practice, community mental health, crisis intervention and hospitalizations, alcohol and drug recovery rehab, EAP, DOT, domestic violence groups, anger management groups, alcohol/drug recovery groups, group home for troubled youth, case management, shelter for runaway street kids in New York, Harlem and California, hospice floor for AIDS patient, and terminally ill floor for kids.
