I am a social worker and can help you with beating depression and anxiety. I see patients remotely via telemedicine services. I am passionate about mental health, and I am ready to start meeting with you to help you reach your goals.
I grew up in rural Ohio. I have assisted the Akron Fire Departments with the REACH program that helped with linking clients to appropriate services. I am all about helping you figure things out!
In addition to my degree in social work, I have served in the US Army. I have experience working with clients who experience PTSD, depression, bipolar, grief, ADHD, and other mental health conditions. I would like to help my clients reach their goals and help them in finding the right tools to beat their conditions.
My interest in Psychology began by spending time with my stepfather, who was a psychiatrist. I became very interested in schizophrenia in 7th grade, which was a surprise to my teacher. I remember my stepfather helping me figure out how to pronounce medications during a trip to see my grandparents.
In college, in the 1980’s, I volunteered for a domestic violence shelter/suicide hotline. I took every Psychology course offered by my undergraduate university as my electives. I chose Capital University for my nursing bachelor, Master’s degree, and faculty employment, because Capital’s nursing programs are certified by the American Holistic Nurses’ Association. I felt that it was important for nursing students to learn how to incorporate holistic principles into their practice as new nurses.
I am looking forward to using my years of experience in nursing and nursing education to provide the best care I can to my patients at Holistic Wellness Solutions. Please call for your appointment today and I will help you get your life on the right track!
Many professionals who counsel couples hold the idea that a successful marriage depends on teaching couples to increase their level of communication. While this is conventional, couples with poor communication skills may think they will make progress by talking more-but end up making their problems worse. This is a scenario where more is definitely not better!
In her book "Fight Less, Love More," author Laurie Puhn teaches short, 5-minute communication and conversation skills to improve your relationship from the inside out.
The principles are aligned with her background as a mediator and conflict resolution expert, but they are brief and accessible. In the time it takes to finish a cup of coffee, you can take action to change your relationship.
Remember, it's never a bad time to have a good relationship. Happy reading!
