I teach individuals living with anxiety, and experiencing life transitions how to heal themselves through spiritual, cognitive , and energetic practices.
With a holistic approach, I take a look at the mind, body, and spirit. We are multitudinous individuals and we must take into consideration the many elements that make us who we are. Together we work on looking within and finding the root cause of your symptoms in a nonjudgmental space. I offer mindset coaching to take a look at your thought patterns and/or reiki therapy to help relax the nervous system and allow the bodies natural energy to show me what it is holding on to. Together, we will release what no longer serves you and develop the tools to tap into your innate healing abilities.

We use a variety of therapy modalities, including Play Therapy, TF- CBT , EMDR, and Strength-Based Therapy.
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.

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.

Do you struggle with anxiety, depression, stress, relationship problems, anger issues? Negative thoughts or traumatic events, small or large, can shape the way you view yourself and those around you, which can lead to a multitude of mental health issues. These often include depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, substance abuse, relationship difficulties and other mental health problems. Everyone deserves a life worth living. Unresolved trauma or unaddressed mental health issues can prevent that from happening. I work with adult clients.

When a man needs to fix a car, he finds the right tools. But when a man is feeling unwell on the inside, our society says, 'Man up!' – which is never the answer. Men by nature are problem-solvers, but without the right coping tools, you might be stuck. Shame or pride can hold you back, but don’t let it. Most of the men I work with say going to therapy was the best decision they made to truly solve problems, restore hope, and reclaim their lives. Let me help you to drive your relationships toward intention, passion and purpose.

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 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.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
