Online Counseling for Mental Health & Wellness

Teens | Adults | Couples | Groups

Whether you feel stuck, detoured by a life crisis or transition, or just know that life could be more fulfilling, I will work with you to explore, define, and reclaim your path.

COVID-19 and Our Mental Health

The novel coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic is spreading, with impacts beyond just illness including anxiety, fear, panic, uncertainty. The life-threating virus is an invisible threat with all of the right triggers for the primitive emotional centers of our brains. Whether your health or livelihood is at stake, we are all dealing with some level of anxiety, fear, isolation, and very real changes to daily life. As each of us is affected by the outcomes and downstream effects, everyone in our community is impacted.

Online Counseling Can Help

Reclaim Your Path offers technology-assisted online counseling as an opportunity to bring attention and awareness to your mental state, from the comfort of your home.  We can work together over secure video to practice grounding techniques, cultivate presence, and develop skills to process your experiences. Rather than reacting to events impulsively or with extreme emotions, you can become more responsive with mindful choices in the face of these uncertain and frightening times.

Feeling stuck

Your life on paper (or social media) seems to check all the boxes. But deep inside, something is missing. Stuck, you’re struggling to build the life you truly want. Maybe you’ve been coping with unbelievable stress at work or school, relationship issues, anxiety, or depression.

Life detours

Perhaps life has thrown you an unexpected detour, like a job loss or the end of a significant relationship.  Whether expected or a complete surprise, these difficult cycles of life still mean grieving the loss and finding hope for what’s ahead.

Growth mindset

You aren’t the type of person that waits for the car engine to breakdown before you take your car in for a tune-up, so why would something as important as your life be treated differently?  Things might even be going really well, but you know you have the potential for more.

Sometimes it’s difficult to find hope or break free from learned patterns of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that hold us back.  But no matter what, you have an intuition you can’t ignore; a voice inside telling you life could be more fulfilling.

If any of this sounds familiar, I can help.

Online counseling services with soul

Based in Columbus, Ohio, I offer online counseling services with soul.  I value collaborative, therapeutic relationships built on mutual trust, vulnerability, curiosity, honesty, and humor.  I am passionate about providing an inclusive, supportive, non-judgmental space where you can feel understood.

The change process will draw upon your unique resources, strengths, experiences, culture, and background. I’ll work with you to develop a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan designed to meet your goals. 

 My approach to online therapy

Effective counseling relationships are a combination of art and science, built on a foundation of empathy, trust, and hope while supported by evidence-based theories and techniques.

The Art

The relationship alliance we build is one of the primary vehicles of change.  In fact, research tells us that relationship factors or the client-counselor “fit” influences therapy outcomes even more than theory or specific interventions.  I offer a free 15-minute consultation you can schedule right now to discover if there’s potential for a productive alliance.

The Science

My integrative approach takes advantage of evidence-based strengths while also validating your experience, engaging in the meaning-making process, and empowering your autonomy and well-being.  My evidence-based “toolkit” is based on a meaning-focused Existential Therapy orientation and modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based Therapies, and Solution-Focused Therapy.  I am trained in EMDR Therapy.

Existential Therapy

Focuses on concepts that are universally applicable to human existence including death, freedom, responsibility, and the meaning of life

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors to improve mental health

N

Solution-Focused Therapy

A goal-directed, collaborative approach to change that focuses on achieving a desired future state where identified problems are resolved or effectively managed

,

EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. It is extensively researched, with demonstrated effectiveness for trauma.

Mindfulness-Based Therapies

Mindfulness and meditative practices to reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, and pain

Integrative, collaborative online therapy tailored to your goals

Technology for online counseling

I offer all of my Ohio-based clients the option to conduct online counseling sessions. Sometimes it can be difficult to get across town or find a window of time in an already-packed schedule. Often, clients are seeking counseling because they are overwhelmed and counseling can seem like another to-do on the endless list.

Let’s use a HIPAA-secure, cross-platform, encrypted video conferencing platform to make it easier to meet from your phone, tablet, or laptop with just a few clicks.
