“Being human is hard. I help my clients find the flexibility to make the changes they are looking for.”
— M. A. Miller
You’ve found yourself grappling with pain and suffering, indecision and uncertainty. You know you want to make changes, yet you’re not sure how.
In our work together you will come to understand what triggers your struggles. We will look at the patterns in your life to identify what you do that works well. And we’ll uncover what may be leftover habits that were once very functional, even lifesaving, but are no longer serving you and are keeping you stuck. We’ll find those patterns together and will explore new ways of being and doing so you can be free of old habits and patterns, so you can step into the rest of your life being the person you were born to be.
I have experience helping people facing depression, anxiety, trauma, childhood abuse and neglect, sexual assault and abuse, substance and behavioral addiction concerns, relationships, career transitions, chronic health concerns, and questions of meaning and purpose.
I use a combination of acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, somatic methods, solution focused therapy, and person-centered approaches. My work is trauma-informed and focused on my clients’ overall wellness.
I am a licensed professional counselor in the State of Ohio with a master’s in clinical mental health counseling. In addition to my counseling career, my work in the sciences, medicine, engineering, and business provides me with first-hand experience with many of the challenges you face in your life.
“The solution to uncertainty isn’t certainty. It is acceptance.”

I am licensed as a professional counselor in the state of Ohio where I see clients in person, in Mentor and Cleveland Heights, and via telehealth at Mindfulness Counseling, LLC. I have experience and training in trauma, addictions, working with survivors of sexual abuse, including male-identifying survivors, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), career counseling, and with in-person and telehealth counseling. I have worked with individuals and groups from many cultures and countries from around the world, both as a counselor and in my previous career, which spanned the sciences, medicine, and engineering. My experience working in varied environments provides me with first-hand knowledge of the many challenges and opportunities people encounter in these areas.
While my work has brought me to many places around the world, my home remains in the Great Lakes region. I currently reside near Cleveland, Ohio.
I am a member of the American Counseling Association, the Ohio Counseling Association, the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science, and follow the American Counseling Association Code of Ethics.
I created Meeting Point Counseling as a place to share counseling-related materials and resources. My mission is to create a free, thriving world by bringing people together to connect in integrity and growth. The Meeting Point Counseling logo reflects that mission. It combines the treffpunkt, the international sign for a meeting point, and overlapping circles to represent the intersections of people, cultures, identities, values, and more.
This site houses a number of online tools that counselors and others may find useful. Although virtual work will never fully replace in-person work, adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic has made it especially clear that telehealth is here to stay. As a gift to the counseling community, Meeting Point Counseling makes this collection of custom online tools freely available to support your online work.
If you have an idea for improvements to these tools, would like to use a different set of values cards, are interested in custom tools for your website or practice, or are interested in connecting, please contact me at the address below.
