I have experience working in different settings and with different populations, problems, and symptoms including; child/adult anxiety, depression, trauma, marital issues, family conflict, bipolar disorder, BPD, and substance abuse.
I believe big change happens as a result of taking small steps, and by making small needed changes. This allows a person to become "unstuck" from old beliefs, patterns, behaviors, and ways if thinking which are harmful to self and others. I use a primarily solution-focused approach and a systemic lens while working with my clients. I believe life is constantly moving and changing and that it is important, on a journey towards growth and healing, that a person feel supported and equipped to handle life's challenges. Whatever the problem, desire, or goal, I will work to help move you forward in a positive and meaningful direction.

Everyone wants to live a life with self-compassion and strong connections to those they care about most, but sometimes we need some help along the way. Therapy can be intimidating, so my number one priority is to provide an environment of safety and trust. For me, the road to healing begins when we recognize that we are each our own worst critic, and that it is okay to not be perfect all the time. I strongly believe that therapy is a collaborative experience, and my main goal is for you to leave each session feeling uplifted, hopeful and one step closer to reaching your personal goals.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Clarkston?
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.
