E. Sterling Boyadzhiev,

I was born and raised in Columbus and attended The Ohio State University for both my undergraduate degree in public health and graduate degree in clinical social work. I enjoy working with children, teens, adults, and families. I specialize in trauma-focused care and believe that every distressing or wounding experience deserves to be given the time and space to heal.

I’m an EMDRIA approved EMDR Therapist and Expressive Arts Therapist, and I use these treatment approaches with integration of other evidence-based modalities to meet each person’s unique needs. Play Therapy is also used in my work with children to address behavioral, social, emotional, and attachment issues.

My intention with each and every person is to create a safe, supportive space where change and healing can occur.
