Therapy is emotionally hard for everyone and most people at some point in their life have seen a therapist or could have benefited from seeing a therapist. The hardest step is the first contact. I believe that the therapeutic relationship between you and your therapist is what helps you make the changes in your life that "you" want to make. My focus is on helping you discover your strengths as a way to live a happier, positive and more meaningful life. I believe in a compassionate, strength-based and client centered approach. Located on bus route 16 or 24 close to Meijer on W. Lake Lansing (Harrison Rd.) Convenient for MSU.

I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space for individuals and couples to have their stories heard, and their thoughts and feelings respected and cared for. I use a person-centered approach that allows people to work on their concerns at their own pace in a supportive space that honors what has meaning to them (past, present, and future). I work with my clients to build a deeper awareness about themselves and their experiences (including their strengths and ability to be resilient and adaptive) in order to foster self-compassion, healing, and change.

Often family history and life experiences have taught us unhealthy skills of dealing with the painful events in our lives. You may have found yourself in place where you are reacting in ways you never thought you would and not living the life you want. It's common to not even know why you are feeling the way you do. Exhaustion, frustration, anger and being easily overwhelmed are just a few common indicators there is something going on with your emotional self. If you are struggling know there is a different way.

Many of the adults/teens that I work with are dealing with anxiety, low self-esteem, and/or PTSD. Others may be struggling in their relationships, or grieving a loss. Some are seeking to learn new coping skills or healthy communication methods, while some are involved in toxic relationships and are looking for support to help process and navigate how to improve their boundaries. These conditions and experiences often leave us living in either the future or the past, affect our relationships, impact how we deal with everyday life, and prevent us from living the lives we wish for ourselves.

When faced with difficult challenges our emotional, physical, and mental health is impacted. The impacts of life transitions, past traumas, and stress can show up in our lives as anger, depression, anxiety, behavioral concerns, and relationship issues. Therapy can be helpful to individuals by allowing space to learn to identify emotions as well as learn tools to manage symptoms. If you're struggling to manage unhelpful thoughts or behaviors centering around anxiety, body image, depression, life changes, self-esteem, self-harm, and stress management I would urge you to consider therapy.

Our goal in life is to be loved. We are remembered for how we make people feel. My goal as a therapist is to help families, couples and individuals with communication, coping and relationship skills to create a life that is this as loving and connected as possible. I have specialized in substance abuse for years. This has given me insight into abandonment issues, the need to escape to create emotional distance in relationships and how these types of patterns play out in relationships. My strengths are helping people to reconnect to their purpose in life and finding meaning in the relationships in their lives and rebuilding trust.

Hi there! I can’t wait to hear from you! Have you been feeling anxious, stressed, worried, or depressed about your life and what’s happening around you? Feeling stuck or that you don’t have control, unsure, or that you are just going through the motions at times. Think to yourself... When was the last time you celebrated a small or big win just because. Or the last time you sat down and said out loud “I’m REALLY proud of myself?” Well, I’m proud of you for putting you first as you begin your therapy journey. Remember you are stronger than you know, don’t be so hard on yourself! Reaching out is a sign of strength.

I have experience helping people with a wide array of challenges, such as depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, trauma, substance abuse, mood disorders, self esteem issues, emotional eating and chronic illness.
Sometimes in life we struggle and feel overwhelmed by our problems or circumstances. During these times, it is beneficial to sit with a compassionate and objective therapist to help identify potential solutions that lead to change, improvement, and growth. Often, people have erroneous thought patterns or long held mistaken beliefs about themselves, which prevent them from achieving the life they want. My approach is to create a sensitive and nonjudgmental environment to assist you in properly identifying the root cause of the problem or to provide the coping skills that make the situation less overwhelming and more tolerable.

Finding good support can be tricky. When others don't understand, it is hard for us to feel validated. I've been there and I understand. I can help you take back your positivity, independence, power, and self-compassion so you can start validating yourself. Through coping, self care, mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and behavior management techniques (etc.) we can discover who you really are, identify how you got there, and apply the compassion you need to heal. All this with a bit of humor to lighten your day.

While navigating through life we are often presented with struggles and challenges that may be difficult to resolve on our own and require guidance and support from someone to successfully push through these challenges with positive outcomes. As a therapist, this is where I come in; I intend to provide individuals (families and couples) a safe haven to explore and work through any area(s) of your life in which you desire to change and/or improve. It is of great importance to me that the client/therapist relationship is established upon openness, candid, with active communication on behalf of both, the client and the therapist.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
