I immigrated from Germany in 2013 and earned my Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University in 2016. I began my career in 2015 in a community mental health center in Savannah, GA. Due to my husband’s career in the US Army, our family had to relocate frequently. We returned to Cleveland the summer of 2022 and are looking forward to making this our forever home. I am eager to begin building a deep connection with this community.

My passion as a therapist is helping my clients resolve deeper problems hidden beneath the surface. I am passionate about exploring your story with you, at your own pace, with the strengths, insights, and spirituality that are important to you. Healing often does not look magical or pretty. It can be exhausting, difficult and painful. I will hold a safe space for you as you embark on your journey. Together we will create a treatment plan which will guide our collective journey to help you accomplish your goals.

My therapy style has a strong focus on EMDR which is not only utilized to treat trauma, but also self-esteem issues, anxiety, depression, stress, anger management and even used to enhance performance. I also tend to favor person centered therapy and draw from CBT as well as DBT in my work.

I am registered with the EMDRIA institute and have been an EMDR trained therapist since 2019. I also completed advanced training in EMDR, including Attachment-Focused EMDR and Ego State Interventions. EMDR can be life changing. As a Certified Clinical Military Counselor, I am also proud to offer specialized services to the veteran population, law enforcement and first responders who face unique challenges.

In alignment with Stella Luna’s vision of incorporating wellness through holistic avenues, I recently completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training after practicing yoga in my personal life for the past 10 years. Though we carry emotional stress in our mind, it also has a way of permeating our physical bodies. Yoga is a mind-body approach with components of mindfulness, breathing and activities through postures which help us manage stress better and promote healing. I look forward to working with you.

Read More About Insurance

We are a private counseling practice, and are working on paneling with insurances at this time. However, we cannot guarantee how long this process will take, or that we will surely be able to panel with your insurance due to the ebb and flow of enrollment. Some of our therapists are currently paneled with  insurances. You can see the updated insurances in each therapist bio, or contact our office for more updated information on where we are in the paneling process. For now, you may be able to utilize your out-of-network benefits for behavioral mental health if you have them. Click for more information and to learn more about this process. You are always welcome to private pay for therapy services. This is beneficial for many reasons, including limiting the amount of disclosure we have to provide to your insurance company about your treatment, and there is no limit to how many sessions you are able to access in a given year.
