About

I am a counselor in Michigan with 15+ years of experience providing counseling to families and individuals across the lifespan in-person, on the phone, and online formats. I have worked with clients on a wide range of issues from life adjustments to severe and persistent mental illness. I am a special needs parent, with a young adult son with Autism; and another young adult daughter that is LGBTQ+. Clients often find me to be very relatable because of the combination of my professional and personal experiences.
My therapy style is warm and eclectic. I believe everyone should be given respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I have utilized therapy modalities such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and trauma focused therapy, among others. I tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to best fit your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to live your best life and take steps toward that change. If you are ready to take that first step, I am here to support and encourage you along your journey. I look forward to working with you!
