I am a fully licensed psychologist in the State of Michigan. Working with children, adolescents, adults, parents, and students, I specialize in employing concepts of cognitive and behavioral therapy and mindfulness to help individuals manage a variety of mental and emotional issues, including Anxiety Disorders, Depressive Disorders, ADHD, Anger, and Behavioral Disorders. Through our work together, my patients learn to be more aware of their thoughts, identify their negative automatic thoughts, and reframe their thoughts such that they are more realistic and positive. Over time, this change in thinking has significant implications for the daily feelings that one experiences.
Using various research based behavioral strategies, I work with my patients to increase activity levels, engage in activities of enjoyment and interest, utilize relaxation and breathing exercises, and establish healthy sleep and eating habits. These initiatives significantly improve one's daily functioning and management of presenting symptoms.
I emphasize mindfulness and self acceptance with my patients. My patients learn how to stay present and "in the moment" rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. They learn how to be observers of their thoughts and feelings, without becoming entangled or distressed by them.
