Deciding to seek therapy can seem overwhelming and yet could be the most important decision you make for yourself and your loved ones. Facing our fears and recognizing we need help facing life’s challenges is the first step in healing our wounded self or our dysfunctional family interactions. I see this desire to change or get to the root of our difficulties as a sign of mental health, not as weakness or “being broken.” I believe that everyone is doing the best that they can with the tools they have and change happens when we realize our ways of being in the world are no longer working for us.

Sometimes life can be overwhelming. Strong emotions can lead you to do things that get in the way of living the life you want.

I'm here to help and we can create positive change in your life. Just give me a call.

Feeling overwhelmed lately? Can’t shake feeling “stuck” or experiencing internal conflict? Are you ready to overcome a traumatic experience that has been holding you back? These are questions I can help you find answers to. I became a therapist because I believe in change and I believe in supportive environments to promote that change. I know branching out, seeking help or trying to open up and share personal details can feel scary and unsettling and I am here to create a safe, confidential and welcoming environment for you.

Counseling is an avenue for moving ahead in life by solving the problems that block this process. These issues involve many areas of life including relationships, disappointments, thoughts, feelings, behaviors, losses, abuse, failures, transitions, traumas, lifestyles, belief systems, aging, medical problems, addictions, personality disorders, self-esteem, dependency, and addictions. The way to solve these problems involves talking about the real issues and feelings with someone who is accepting and understanding, learning new information, experimenting with new behaviors, taking some risks, and evaluating the results.

Part of our journey through life involves challenges, setbacks, and crossroads. Sometimes, these come in the form of normal life transitions. Other times, it can be in the form of the unpredictable: trauma, loss, cancer. No matter what your current circumstance is, know this: there is hope. You WILL rise again-better and stronger than before and through this rising you will find peace, acceptance and personal growth. You will learn to turn your wishes into outcomes. You have already taken the first step. I look forward to helping you to continue on your path to healing.

** Hi, and welcome to therapy. Choosing to come to therapy I understand can be a serious decision in one's life. Therapy is a way to positively solve issues, like looking at a puzzle and slowly putting the pieces together, so that you as the individual are able to achieve the tools to later take out into the community and apply to your life outside of therapy. The goal of therapy is to not only figure out the puzzles in your life, but to learn emotional tools to use in your life with communicating and interacting with others. listening to client's and humbly understanding what they are going through is so important.

What type of Clarkston 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Clarkston?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
