For many of us who have felt different, including those in the LGBTQIA+, we live with the collective trauma of existing in a system that isn’t built for us to thrive as our authentic selves. My hope is that through our collaboration we will be able to explore and identify the experiences and traumas that have led you to seek therapy services, understand how these problem areas don’t impact what is the most obvious, but also understand that sometimes these problems go much deeper, and lastly work through the things we discover to help you push through the discomfort to empower you to live authentically.

I specialize in Psychodynamic Therapy and I offer services to children and adults.
How to be a good parent is one of the most widely searched parenting questions on the web. So many parents are searching for answers to improve their relationship with their child. It can be frustrating to see your child struggling or constantly challenging your every move. You may ask yourself, where did I go wrong? What should I have done differently? The truth is, there is no "one perfect parenting style". You can, however, learn the skills needed to support your child's unique developmental needs and teach your child the necessary skills to communicate his/her needs. It’s never too late to implement change.

As we strive for greater insight into ourselves and our relationships, we often come face to face with our deepest doubts and fears. Finding the courage to achieve lasting personal growth requires a safe and structured space for telling our stories and unraveling the knots that cause us pain. As a therapist with seventeen years of experience, my approach to providing such a space is both integrative and collaborative. I draw on well-established practices of attachment-informed, mindfulness, CBT, and psychodynamic exploration to help clients grow and navigate the challenges in their lives.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Battle Creek, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
