I graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration degree and a few years later became licensed in massage therapy. After realizing a desire to expand my career into counseling, I completed my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the Union Institute and University. I now work with Restoring Hope Counseling and Coaching as a Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in working with those who have or are experiencing trauma, infertility, anxiety and grief.
My focus as a massage therapist was women experiencing infertility, pregnancy and postpartum times as well as teaching infant massage. I bring this long history of service with new families to the counseling field. I work with women, couples and families as they deal with struggles and mood disorders. I also work with those experiencing anxiety, struggles with their self-esteem and grief.
As an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Trained Clinician, I assist people in moving from post-traumatic stress to post-traumatic growth. The EMDR process can help individuals unhook the intense emotions from the memory of the experience and reduce the effects of trauma.
