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 therapist. I will work hard to understand you & 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. In order to make it available to everyone, 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 other longer options if needed.
I have my own private practice in Auburn Hills, near Oakland University and not far from Lake Orion, Oxford, 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.

I have worked very hard to be ready for anything! I believe that I owe it to any client who walks in my door to be able to successfully help them with anything that is affecting them. Every time I found myself dealing with any new issue, I read and learned all I could on the subject. I believe that was way more valuable even than my formal education.
