I am a clinical social worker and intuitive practitioner in Northeast Ohio offering individual and group support, consultation, and healing interventions. I have experience working with adults of all ages with a variety of mental health diagnoses, and has worked in a variety of settings, including almost 10 years in inpatient psychiatric care. I’ve been enjoying private practice since early 2016.
My passion lies in using all of the skills I have gathered throughout my years of training and experience to give my clients permission to do the hard work of caring for themselves through telling and transforming their healing stories. I strongly support self tending, healthy boundaries, ongoing reflection, continuous learning, and processing of feelings and experiences in order to move through each chapter of those stories. I’m honored to witness each client’s work and validate each milestone while also recognizing where my own story is shaped by each opportunity to be witness to another person.
My approach is eclectic, using multiple theories and approaches to fit each client, and my intuitive framework is shaped by a grounded and respectful approach to engaging in practices that honor my spiritual foundation while carefully avoiding cultural theft.
