I grew up as an only child in Canton, Ohio, which allowed me plenty of opportunity to observe the world around me and develop a natural curiosity towards others. I found my way into the field of psychology as a result of my own lived experiences, setting the intention from then on that those I work with will have a voice, feel seen, and feel heard.
I have experience working in a number of settings, to include residential treatment, inpatient psychiatric hospitals, schools, prisons, VA healthcare system, group private practices, and community mental health.
I am adept at treating a variety of presenting concerns, such as depression, anxiety, panic disorder, personality disorders, transition issues, anger management, stress management, suicidal ideation, self-harm, relationship issues, parenting concerns, etc.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, playing video games, going to concerts, binging television shows, working out, meeting up with friends, and spending time with my four fur-children.
