If you are a teenager , young adult, parent, or spouse you may often experience stress in your life. You may feel less connected, misunderstood, and overwhelmed with work or school. Although some stress is healthy, too much stress makes it even more challenging to create solutions and work through problems. Whatever the issue is, you would like to feel more connected and valued in your relationships, improve your ability to manage your stress and solve problems, overcome previous barriers, and have a better sense of who you are.

Are you ready to heal? How does finding relief, internal peace, and gaining skills for you or a loved one that will last a lifetime sound? If you are ready, then you are ready for EMDR. My practice also provides talk therapy. I work with children and adults and have over 20 years of experience managing children and family programs, as well as providing home-based therapy for families. And while working with children and adults each requires different approaches and therapy modalities, my goal remains the same: to facilitate a safe place where individuals, whether big or small, have the opportunity to heal.

I am currently doing teletherapy with all of my clients. Because of that, I can take clients from anywhere in Michigan. I enjoy working with clients who are up for a little work. I have a strong belief in the idea that therapy isn't something that is done to us, rather something we must take an active role in to see any true progress. I view therapy as another way to add more tools to our toolbox in an effort to better ourselves. My goal isn't to have a client for life; it is to teach the skills needed for my client to be their best selves, even after we have finished working together.

If I am not accepting new clients, as a free courtesy, I will offer help in finding someone that is a good fit for you. I believe in supporting and guiding clients to find their own answers, using a holistic, supportive, and integrated approach that encompasses the mind, body, and spirit. Through personal growth and development, we can learn to change our destiny and replenish our positive energy. It is finding our own inner strengths; the power to find our own answers and to rid ourselves of negative self-talk so that we can be at peace with the decisions we make, without unwelcome influence and/or advice.

As a clinician, I believe in meeting clients where they are, identifying their strengths and barriers, in order to assist in developing a personalized plan for treatment and life management. I do not believe in a “cookie-cutter” method, and I am very open to exploring new methods and using multiple approaches to help each client individually. I assist my clients with understanding their behavior patterns and the changes they want to make while in treatment. Being in therapy means some form of change. Change can be different from client to client because each client has unique needs.

I want to help people feel better. You don't have to have extreme TRAUMA to need trauma work. You don't have to be suicidal to know that depression is a part of your life. You don't have to experience a panic attack to be having problems with anxiety. We all experience different levels of these problems in our lives and my goal is to work through these concerns and make a stronger person through a therapeutic relationship.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
