About Us

Why we’re here

We are a group of committed counselors who have all personally felt the pain and consequences of addiction.

We have worked tirelessly in the traditional environments where policy and punishment often take precedence over the person.

We knew there was a better way. Perhaps you do too, and that’s why you are here.
We are excited to bring healing and a new way forward for our clients, their families, and our communities.

What we stand for


Our practice begins with the connection, trust, and alignment of our team. From there, we provide proven therapies and strategies for our clients to reconnect to themselves and their families. Restoring relationship to self and others is at the heart of our extraordinary results.


We know our clients are not their struggles. We work with people, not their diagnoses. When our clients heal, the world heals.


We believe in our clients until our clients can believe in themselves. No one is broken. No one is beyond healing. We utilize a variety of innovative therapies to get the job done for any willing client.

Our team

We take an integrated approach to recovery in both the therapies we
recommend, and the team members our clients see. Each team member
uses their special gifts to bring deeper awareness and healing.

I believe in taking a compassionate, holistic approach that helps people to connect with themselves and others to heal and grow. I treat trauma, addiction, and other mental health disorders. I like to work together with my clients to help them find their way through life’s difficulties.

I am an EMDR certified licensed professional clinical counselor who specializes in trauma and addiction. I graduated from the University of Toledo with a Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters Degree in Counseling Education. I see both adults and teens. I am also a Certified chief instructor of Choi Kwang Do, and have spent 27 years working with the community promoting awareness, self-empowerment, and mental/physical health.

I believe that by taking a compassionate and holistic approach, we can reconnect with our-selves and others to heal and grow. I am passionate about this work, and I feel so frequently humbled by my clients’ strength and resiliency and I am honored to be a part of their journey.

I received my Masters of Social Work at the University of Toledo in 2019. I am a licensed social worker as well as a licensed independent chemical dependency counselor. I have been trained in EMDR as well as the Flash Technique. I have a passion for human connection and vulnerability. I have a strong belief in the therapeutic alliance between a therapist and the client. It is a team effort and each client has their own individual goals of what they expect to get out of therapy. It is my job to help navigate each one of my clients to make those goals achievable. I use a variety of modalities, depending on the client’s needs. One of the main techniques I use in therapy is mindfulness as I feel it creates a foundation for the client to get to know more about themselves and how to create equilibrium in the mind and body.

The therapeutic experience is different for everyone and each person’s treatment should be treated as such. We are all made up of different stories and qualities that have created who we are today. My goal is to fulfill each person’s expectations of what therapy means to them and accomplish, with them, a successful therapeutic experience.
