Note from Founder and Executive Director:
Welcome to my practice! In addition to being a native Ohioan, I am proud to be an alum of both St. Ignatius High School (Cleveland) and John Carroll University (JCU. ) After I earned my Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from John Carroll University, I also received post-graduate training from The Wellness Institute in Issaquah, Washington in Clinical Hypnosis. I also received post-graduate training from The Cleveland Center for Cognitive Therapy in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and I am a Level 2 trained Gottman-Method Couples/Marriage Counselor.
It is an honor to have been able to serve clients throughout the Ohio region since I became a State Licensed Clinical Counselor in 2011. I am also grateful to be a frequent regional presenter for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD.)
