About Dr. Guess
Have a question or just want to get in touch? Message me below!
I’m a Clinical Psychologist based in Ohio and I’ve been helping people improve their mental health since 2012. With a Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology and Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Computer Science, I bring a unique perspective to the table.
My journey to becoming a psychologist started later in life. Before that, I worked as a software engineer in Pittsburgh, PA, and later became a professor of Information Technology for 12 years at Defiance College. Along the way, I also managed to play collegiate basketball at Slippery Rock University (Go Rock!) and completed my Master’s degree in Computer Science at Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
When I’m not working, I’m a proud mother of three amazing children. My oldest is getting married soon, my middle child is always exploring the world, and my youngest is still in high school. Being a mom has taught me so much about patience, resilience, and the importance of building strong relationships. That’s why I’m passionate about providing quality care and support for all my clients on their journey towards better mental health.
