I have experienced and witnessed that the insights and breakthroughs gained in therapy, coaching, and psychoeducation can change one’s life trajectory in a powerful and life-giving way.  It is because of this that I am passionate about empowering people to take the courageous steps through the process of personal growth and emotional healing.  Whether in therapy, coaching, or teaching, I am committed to the process of helping you understand your past and present experiences so that you are able to gain freedom and thrive.  Believe it or not, the puzzle pieces do finally come together!

TRAUMA & RELATIONSHIP SPECIALIST:  My specialties include relationships, attachment, parenting, addictions, trauma, and couples therapy. I have extra training in psychodynamic approaches based in attachment theory including Emotion Focused Therapy (Associate in EFT) and Developmental and Relational Trauma (DARTT certification). By using these modalities I help individuals, couples, and families deepen self-understanding, improve self-compassion, experience inner healing, and strengthen relationships and family systems.  I am honored to join you in your personal or professional journey.

On a personal note, I am married and have three sons. I value the lessons I have learned through both my failures and successes in marriage and parenting. My interests include faith and spirituality, fitness and sports, music and the arts, travel and calculated adventure! I especially enjoy sharing good times, good food, and laughter with family and friends.

I created Learn2Thrive, a boutique mental health practice in Cincinnati, where we fully customize our approach to meet your needs.  We pursue a positive and collaborative approach to working with clients, business partners, and fellow organizations. We believe in the strength of practicing together as a community of clinicians who seek to provide excellent services in a supportive environment.  As such a community, we strive to create a safe relaxed atmosphere where clients and clinicians alike can learn to thrive.
