The challenges of dealing with stress and conflict are the source of many personal, family and work-related problems and can result in conditions requiring clinical intervention. Effective clinical counseling can be the key to problem resolution, personal growth, improved relationships and a general sense of well-being.
I am a licensed clinical counselor with supervisory credentials in the state of Ohio. I provide clinical counseling services for individuals with a primary focus on the treatment of depression, anxiety and adult ADD/ADHD. Clinical counseling approaches include cognitive-behavioral therapy and solution-focused therapy.
Clinical counseling that is paid by insurance is driven by the medical model and requires a diagnosis which then must be the focus of treatment. Individuals who do not want to have a mental health diagnosis in their record or who want to explore concerns that do not fit a diagnosis may receive services on a self-pay basis.
I use positive psychology as the basis of my work as developed by Martin Seligman and others at the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania (www.ppc.sas.upenn.edu/). Strategies and techniques used to manage stress, anger, anxiety and depression incorporate techniques developed by the Institute of HeartMath (http://www.heartmath.org/) including use of "Inner Balance" biofeedback. Solution-focused and stress management techniques are helpful with individuals who are diagnosed with adult ADD/ADHD.
I am able to meet with clients at 8:00 in the morning and in the late afternoon/evening until 8:00 p.m. which is optimal for individuals with busy work schedules.

I accept the rates paid by insurance companies for clients covered by insurance. For non-insured clients the standard fee is $120 per one hour session for clinical counseling. I do offer a sliding fee, upon request, with a minimum rate of $80 per hour.
