We are a couple and a couple of counselors that decided to branch out into private practice after the pandemic left us feeling like the work at our agencies wasn't reaching the people that we were called to help. This is a journey for us just as much as it is for our clients and we cannot wait to get started in helping you to achieve your goals.
At Calibrations Counseling you will find warmth, comfort that you can sink into in order to do the deeper work that therapy calls for. We hope that you find solace in knowing that we are human too and just like you have the life experience that makes us question ourselves.
After my own childhood experiences, I became a therapist because I wanted to help people know that they aren’t alone; there are people that care about them. I’m a licensed professional clinical counselor supervisor (LPCC-S) and graduated from the University of Akron with a master’s of education. I’ve often been told that I’m not a “typical therapist”. I’ve been a geek my whole life and I often bring that into sessions with various fandoms and movie quotes. I’m down to earth and thrive on letting you steer therapy while riding alongside so you’re not alone in your journey. I don’t come in with a preconceived agenda and instead work to meet you where you are at and discover what you truly want from life. I provide an unbiased space for you to be yourself and I like to use humor when appropriate. When I’m not in my office, I can be found hiking or going on fun day adventures, playing video games (Mass Effect is the best game of all time), watching the original Star Wars trilogy and Lord of the Rings, spending time with my wife and our pets, or going to a good old renaissance festival.
You're sitting on the couch trying to motivate yourself to get up and moving. You have so much to do and all of it important but you just... can't. You feel overwhelmed and you don't know where to start. You're exhausted and it's time for a change.
You want to get through your day without becoming overwhelmed and shutting down. You'd like to tackle your day to day tasks without that little voice in the back of your head being so critical. You think it would also feel wonderful to actually enjoy life and take time for yourself without feeling guilty or selfish. I can help you get there.
I have experience working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, life transitions, and substance use. I provide a comfortable and calming space for you to come as you are, without judgement. I enjoy getting to know you and ensure that you are not just listened to, but truly heard. I am an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist.
I am a licensed professional clinical counselor supervisor (LPCC-S), DBT Certified, and graduated from the University of Akron with a master’s of education. I enjoy getting to know you and ensure that you are not just listened to, but truly heard. You are important and what you want and need matters. Sessions with me are laid back and move at your pace. Therapy is not a one size fits all experience and everyone’s needs are different. I get on your level in order to help you figure out what you need and what will work best for you.
When I’m not in my office, I can be found building and painting miniatures, playing D&D or video games, going out for karaoke, spending time with my husband and our pets, or watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the 1,000th time.
