Are anxiety and depression ruling your life? Is everyday a struggle? I am a licensed counselor with experience who can transform your life for the better. I work with clients facing intimate relationship issues, bereavement, severe anxiety and depression. I am compassionate and possess the tools to create positive change in your life. I come from the perspective that everyone has a story to tell and deserves a place where it can be safely heard. My mission is to work with clients in a highly attuned and deeply caring way. I am also trained in EMDR for clients with trauma to help bring balance to their lives.
I gained clinical experience at St. Joseph Mercy on the Palliative Team. I work with families and individuals in crisis. Issues close to my heart are those suffering with anxiety, facing new life transitions, postpartum depression and caregiver support. I have extensive experience working with bereavement, panic attacks, OCD, sexual abuse and LGBT issues.
My approach to therapy is to investigate the roadblocks that are preventing you from living the life you want to live. I care about your well being and will work hard to help you obtain your goals.
