Expanded training and certification in working with those that have experienced mental, physical, &/or psychological ( narcissistic ) abuse; religious oppression, deconstruction, and spiritual recovery; experience working with front liners, SOM, MDOC, & high profile careers.
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 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.

Reaching out for help can be difficult and frightening. You deserve commitment to maintaining a non-judgmental and collaborative therapy environment when the time comes. Our tendency as humans is to avoid any contact with painful emotions and disturbing memories. Unfortunately, during traumatic experiences our minds focus on the worst part; so this remains our experience. Much like our bodies, our minds have the potential to heal if given the opportunity and will move to a more adaptive experience. I look forward to sharing in you journey.

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.

Currently, I provide psychotherapy and assessment services to adolescents, adults, couples, and families, with similar challenges, and clients with intellectual disabilities, bipolar disorder, personality disorders , and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
I believe in order to make changes in our lives, we must first examine the impact that past relationships, experiences, and environments have had on us. The therapeutic process allows us to examine and process how things that have happened to us can impact who we are as individuals and integrate the past into who we are in the present. The therapeutic relationship can help us to identify sources of resilience and strength that can help us to overcome past negative experiences. By connecting our past with who we are in the present, we can start the process of change.

Typical focus areas include depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, personality disorders , and problematic behaviors.
There is probably a lot going on in life right now, and you feel overwhelmed or at the end of your rope. Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety or depression, and you find yourself "pushing through" because that is what you have always done. Or you have suffered so long, you cannot remember what it feels like to enjoy life. Perhaps you have even tried therapy in the past but it “just didn't work for me” or “my therapist didn't understand me or how to help me.” If so, it is important to receive counseling from someone qualified and willing to work to understand your specific struggles and develop a plan to accomplish your goals.

My clientele include people who struggle with disordered eating behaviors, personality disorders , substance use, interpersonal relationships, anxiety, and depression/suicidality.
As we age, I can't help but think that our lives may go off the path we originally intended. While life can be full of many positive changes and events, there may also be experiences in which one may develop feelings of shame, guilt, anxiety, and/or depression. It can be hard to recognize life isn't always 'perfect' and to determine how and where to give up control. It can be difficult to embrace the good and bad parts of our lives; but it can be just as empowering to develop the next chapter just as you would like it to be. My goal is to help you leap into the unknown, build more authenticity and awareness, and start living a life with more fulfillment.

What type of Big Rapids 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 Big Rapids?
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.
