At Ohio Addiction Recovery Center, our clinical approach is to provide intensive services in a supportive, welcoming treatment program staffed by experienced, compassionate experts who are dedicated to the success of our clients. Each individual comes to us with their own unique set of strengths and challenges. Our approach builds on those strengths and teaches tools and strategies to navigate and overcome the behaviors and habits that have been holding them back. Our primary goal is to help those we serve to achieve abstinence and long-term recovery from alcoholism and substance abuse. We know that addiction and co-occurring disorders take a heavy toll on the individual. For many of the people we treat, substance abuse has been a way of life for years, often as early as childhood. This leaves them feeling hopeless and demoralized. There is often a belief that the problems they face are insurmountable and that things won’t get better. We aim to help each and every person we work with to move past this hopelessness and into a new life full of possibility. This happens through healing and learning a new way of life.
As clinical director and a practicing clinician, I strive to empower the client to find strength and hope for recovery while inspiring hope and compassion in my coworkers and staff. I discovered a passion for the chemical dependency field during my undergraduate degree and pursued it throughout my education and career with perseverance. After graduating from Tiffin University with a Bachelors of Arts with a certification of Addiction Counseling Education, I earned a Master’s degree in Social Work focusing on clinical practices. Later, I obtained a mental health licensure as Licensed Independent Social worker with Supervisor designation (LISW-S), and a chemical dependency licensure as a Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor (LICDC). My specialties include chemical dependency treatment, assessments and diagnosis, cognitive behavioral therapy, strength based therapy, motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, schema therapy, crisis intervention, individual and group therapy, adults and adolescents, and I have recently started working in Equine Assisted Therapy, Recreational Therapy and EMDR therapy. I have worked in inpatient and outpatient settings working with adolescents, families, and adult individuals. I started with Ohio Addiction Recovery Center in June 2015 as the Clinical Director. Our philosophy focuses on utilizing clinically tested and evidence-based interventions when working directly with clients, as well as maintaining the highest standards of care throughout the entire agency.More
