Areas of Expertise | Counseling – Coaching Services | Dublin, Ohio

One of the most commonly asked questions by prospective clients is what my clinical areas of expertise are. While I am trained in several techniques and can treat anything from stress management to personality disorders, I do have areas that I would consider my areas of expertise or the main focus of my practice.

Autism Spectrum Disorders:

There is a lot of information out there about Autism and what the causes of it are. I understand how overwhelming all that information can be to a parent of a child on the Autism Spectrum. I believe that it is our job as clinicians to do the research and educate you on the disorder. It is our job to educate you on what we are learning and how we are taking that data to innovate and improve the treatment of clients on the Autism Spectrum…Read More

Anxiety Disorders:

If a clinician is going to work with Anxiety Disorders, they need to understand that Anxiety Disorders are one of the most neurologically based mental health disorders next to Bipolar and Schizophrenia. It is important to help my clients understand this concept because Anxiety Disorders such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety, and Panic Disorders are debilitating and extremely life interfering for clients and their families…Read More

Addiction Disorders:

When I was in graduate school, I was taught that to be a good clinician…you must be able to look in the mirror and acknowledge when you messed up or that what you are doing is not working. I do not think I am being too controversial when I say that the existing treatment models for addiction are not good enough. When we have a 90% relapse rate for meth and heroin…we know we are not doing something right…Read More
