Through a trauma informed combination of mindful based practices, dialectical and somatic therapies, we can uncover how your personal experience has shaped the way you make meaning in order to provide relief and initiate change.
My aim and joy as a therapist is to understand you as an expert on your own life. In order to process the complexity of everyday living, we compartmentalize and make generalizations about our experience. Sometimes we hold on to generalizations that may have served us at one point, but no longer apply to current circumstances. I concentrate on listening, non-judgmental questioning, emotional support and holding space for your process. My collaborative approach focuses on adaptation, allowing us to apply the methods that work best, while processing and making space for what does not work.

I have training and experience in using psychodynamic, relational, interpersonal, dialectical , and cognitive-behavioral techniques in therapy.
In therapy, I try to incorporate an understanding of the impact of culture on mental health using an intersectionist framework. Whether looking at the intersection of race and gender or sexual orientation, age, and religion, at the heart of each individual is a nexus of several different social identities, which are associated with different cultural norms. At any given time, one or multiple identities may be made salient. These beliefs and values affect the expression of psychological distress, and therefore should be used to inform treatment.

At times life's struggles can lead to a need to adjust to things thrown your way unexpectedly. In these cases, feelings of anxiety, sadness or adjustments can become overwhelming and require some outside assistance to help us think things through and sort out our choices. Individuals with these concerns may want to find a place to assist them while maintaining their privacy, dignity and respect.

I provide services to adults who are experiencing traumas aftermath. Once you have lived through the trauma the body and mind continue to react as if the trauma is still there. You may be experiencing hypervigilance, emotional overwhelm, intense and out of ordinary reactions to your loved ones, flashbacks, numbness, depression, anxiety, and daily dissociation. The good news is these responses are normal reactions to trauma. I understand they are uncomfortable to live with and this is where our relationship begins. We will work together to calm your body and mind.

What type of Detroit 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 Detroit?
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.

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.
