I earned my nursing degree from the University of Toledo, experiencing 25+ years in the field. I more recently have pursued my Master's Degree is Social Work with a counseling focus from Cleveland State University. My clinical interests include, but are not limited to: grief, loss and bereavement, mood and anxiety problems, relationships including romantic, familial and platonic, self-esteem, body image concerns, alcohol, and drug abuse.
I prefer humanistic, person-centered approaches when working with clients and I favor Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution Focused, Narrative and Play Therapies tailoring treatment approaches based on individual client needs and presenting issue(s).
