Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or a trauma (or many), I believe in creating an environment that feels safe for you; an environment which dismantles shame and turns it into courage, empowering you to live a more fulfilling life.
Mind, Body, and Spirit; all are important aspects of overall well-being and at some point in our lives, we all experience one, two, or all three areas becoming misaligned. The solution then is to find balance once again…and that is where I come in. Whether you are looking to change the thoughts and beliefs you have about yourself (mind), relieve bodily symptoms that have no medical explanation (body), or get connect to your higher self (spirit), I am here to help guide you to realignment. **Email/text are the easiest ways to get ahold of me as I am often in session**

Some of my interests and specializations include anxiety, depression, mindfulness, school and career issues, athletics and performance, life transitions, first responders and first responder families.
Finding a therapist is about building a relationship with someone you can trust. Beginning the process can be overwhelming and intimidating, but in reaching out, your journey has already begun. I believe in an eclectic approach to meet each person’s individual needs, and have trained in art therapy, person centered and cognitive behavioral therapy. Through our work together, my goal is to provide a warm, caring atmosphere infused with a bit of laughter.

In the past, I have worked with clients with ADHD, Autism, anxiety disorders, trauma disorders, conduct disorders, and depressive disorders.
I believe in order to make changes in our lives, we must first examine the impact that past relationships, experiences, and environments have had on us. The therapeutic process allows us to examine and process how things that have happened to us can impact who we are as individuals and integrate the past into who we are in the present. The therapeutic relationship can help us to identify sources of resilience and strength that can help us to overcome past negative experiences. By connecting our past with who we are in the present, we can start the process of change.

My passion is to create space where clients can seek greater wholeness & wellbeing. We often explore how to pursue a healthy relationship with God, ourselves, and others. Inviting God’s grace & truth into our personal struggles can be transformational. Sometimes we get stuck in patterns of thinking & behaving that are shame-based & performance driven. This can fuel anxiety & depressive symptoms, and create a negative view of ourselves, the people we love, and even God. Learning healthy coping strategies, interpersonal boundaries, emotional regulation, and awareness of the mind-body connection are keys to becoming our best selves.

If you are interested in a nurturing & safe space for processing and working through life's natural shifts and unexpected challenges, I would love to meet you! The clients I work with are typically seeking support related to their experiences with trauma, depression, anxiety, and identity issues.
In my work as a therapist, I guide my clients toward a self-awareness journey that is centered in sustained wellness. The majority of my recent work has involved clients whose mental health is impacted by systems of oppression. It is important to me, as a mental health professional, to cultivate deep attunement to the unique needs of individuals who identify themselves as belonging to historically excluded communities. I am committed to staying engaged with liberation efforts that amplify my scope of practice in the interest of consciousness expansion and healing.

I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), an amazingly effective technique for anxiety, trauma and PTSD.
I began as a life coach and became a therapist in 2017 because I wanted to help people in a deeper way. I adjust to your pace: maybe you are coming in with a concern about something that happened recently and you just want another person's insight on it; or maybe you have past trauma that you'd like to finally unhook from. With deeper work, I like to get an idea of your whole picture -- emotionally, psychologically and spiritually -- so I can help you reach whatever goal or resolve whatever issue you come in with.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Kalamazoo anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Kalamazoo.
