Shine Brighter - Shine Brighter!

Ohioans in the Eastern Suburbs of Cleveland: Are you looking for support from a therapist or counselor as you deal with a loss, a setback, a mental health challenge or rapid change?

Do you have a vague sense that there must be more to daily life than you are experiencing?

Does it seem as if symptoms of anxiety, depression, anger, or even trauma are overwhelming to you?

I am a warm, supportive individual who can listen to the problems you have been carrying alone -- and encourage you to achieve a better quality of life.

Perhaps you know that one-size does not fit all in therapy. Miracle-working, sometimes confrontational TV show depictions of robotic psychologists and stuffy psychiatrists run counter to our instincts. A passive helper is not the best choice either. I relate well to women and men of all walks of life, and will customize a treatment approach to fit you and your situation.

The results of therapy emerge from strategic teamwork, trust, mutual learning, and rapport.

I offer a 30-minute, free get-acquainted session -- whether you are seeking counseling, editing, or writing services. Call me at 216-543-4891 and leave a confidential message or email with a short note.

You are worth the investment of therapy, and I will honor your story. You will not leave without at least one idea, a useful strategy, on how to help your words and life shine brighter.

My rates are affordable as I do not work with insurance panels yet want to make therapy accessible to all who wish to work at it and are in need.

Take your next, best step. Call or write..
