About

Thinking about therapy? Clients tell me that they wish they had come to therapy years ago and that it is the best thing they ever did for themselves. Maybe you have had experiences that have negatively affected your emotional & mental health; Maybe you aren't sure what to do about a situation or maybe you feel stuck. I will help you find & get rid of those things that are in the way of you getting the life you want. Everyone at some point can use the help of therapy! Most people would say that I am compassionate, creative, respectful, honest, & proactive. I will work hard to understand you and help you accomplish your goals.
Using multiple therapeutic approaches as well as psychological testing when needed, I provide a safe, non-judgmental & confidential place to get help. Therapy is so helpful, I want everyone to have the opportunity, thus I have a pro-rated cost for a 45 min session at $75 and a 30 min at $50. In addition, there is the full hour at $100 and 90 min at $150.00.
I have my own private practice @ Mountain Vista Counseling off M-24 in Lake Orion; near Oxford, Auburn Hills, Rochester and Clarkson. I know that choosing a therapist is not always easy, so I offer a free consultation so we can meet first before you start therapy. I can answer any questions you have and can explain how therapy works if you are new to it.
