Counseling and Psychotherapy Services
I specialize in individual psychotherapy for adults (ages 18+). I do work with children, adolescents, couples, or families. My approach to counseling is an integration of psychodynamic and humanistic models that emphasize depth in personal life and relationships. I also incorporate strategies from acceptance and commitment therapy and mindfulness-based stress reduction to assist individuals to improve their coping skills and enhance their sense of well-being. I offer services in English and/or Spanish.
Limitations of practice:
(1) While I may meet with spouses/partners and other family members as part of an individual's counseling process, I do not provide couple's or family counseling. If needed, I will provide a referral for a marriage and family therapist. (2) I often provide referrals for another specialist when substance use disorders are contributing to significant impairment. (3) I am a Senior Staff Psychologist at The Ohio State University and do not maintain a full time private practice. I am available on Thursdays, 6pm - 8pm and Fridays, 9 am - 6pm. I typically meet with clients once per week or less frequently (e.g., every 2-3 weeks, monthly). If you are seeking counseling more than once per week or you need frequent support between visits, I will assist you with a referral to another therapist.
