Utilizing Brainspotting , I am able to work with your brain and body to heal deep psychological and ancestral wounds.
Are you tired of caretaking for everyone and feeling like no one cares for you? Do you struggle to give yourself the same kindness & compassion that you so easily give to others? Does guilt get in the way of you saying no and setting boundaries? Most of my clients are impacted by these issues and feel helpless in living an abundant life of self-love. My expertise is working with people to find healing and restoration through empowerment, developing insight, and working with the body. I understand how power, oppression, and trauma can contribute to distress and I work to instill hope.

Lengthy waitlist at this time for general inquiries. I do prioritize perinatal clients. I am only able to respond to contacts for reproductive issues- 1/2023. My ideal client has clear, agreed upon goals and is ready to make transformations in their life and their experience; someone who is ready to do the work to find relief from suffering, not just learning to tolerate suffering. I use innovative approaches to find what works for you to make a change. I consider it an honor to walk with people on their life journey if even for only 45 minutes once a week for some time. You are not alone, you will be well.

We all need help at various times along the life span. We can get stuck and need some assistance along the way. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness but a declaration of awareness. When the road gets uncomfortable we develop a strong urge to change that feeling of discomfort. What's motivating you to take the next steps to living your life authentically? Let's start with a free consultation.

Using Brainspotting , a brain/body mindfulness-based practice, along with other modalities, together we can clear out what's not yours, help you make sense of intense feelings and experiences, help you find greater comfort and ease being yourself, and go from feeling overwhelmed, worried, exhausted and burned out to having more energy, vitality, and ease.
You're doing all the right things for self-care but rarely feel recharged. You may have been to therapy before, and while it was hopefully helpful, you keep finding yourself stuck in the same old patterns. You've been called "sensitive" your whole life and often feel misunderstood. You feel drained and depleted at the end of the day because everyone is always needing something from you, yet you have trouble sleeping. You struggle to show yourself the same empathy and kindness you so easily give others. You frequently feel overwhelmed and worried, are hard on yourself, and feel guilty saying "no" and setting boundaries. I got you.

What type of Ann Arbor mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Ann Arbor?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
