My role is to help you feel heard, uninterrupted, deeply listened to, and to be understood.

Worked in areas of HIV, LGBTQ , employment issues, child welfare.
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.

Are you going through a significant life event or change? Or are you ready to work through past distressing memories or traumatic events? Embarking on the therapeutic journey takes courage, as well as finding the right therapist. I specialize in helping those going through significant life events and discernment, individuals who experience depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD, as well as those who identify as LGBTQIA . I prefer to view therapeutic foci through an Adaptive Information Processing Model, rather than through a pathological lens. So many presenting symptoms are actually trauma-related, and that is where healing can start.

For many of us who have felt different, including those in the LGBTQIA +, we live with the collective trauma of existing in a system that isn’t built for us to thrive as our authentic selves. My hope is that through our collaboration we will be able to explore and identify the experiences and traumas that have led you to seek therapy services, understand how these problem areas don’t impact what is the most obvious, but also understand that sometimes these problems go much deeper, and lastly work through the things we discover to help you push through the discomfort to empower you to live authentically.

I am a LGBTQIA + affirming therapist with more than a decade in this field; I’ve had the opportunity to assist a wide variety of people and I have learned so much.
My approach to therapy is built upon a deep belief that the therapeutic relationship itself is a powerful vehicle for change. Our minds and hearts are profoundly intuitive tools that gauge safety and connection in each moment; when our basic needs are disrupted, that can impact our lives in challenging and persistent ways. Finding a therapist who can hold a warm, inviting space for processing will open doors to incredible insight and growth. My work centers the agency and wisdom of my clients, while acknowledging the impacts of cultural conditioning, systemic injustice, and existential issues.

I have extensive experience working with the LGBTQ community in providing individual, family, and couples therapy.
My role is to help those who are seeking out their paths and to manage the difficulties that life can present. I was told early on in my education that "life is a series of losses and a therapist's role is to help folks manage these losses." Loss does not just include the death of a loved one but it could represent other forms of loss such as identity. I provide support and validation for these losses that may have originally been invalidated by being told "just get over it" or "pull yourself up by the boot straps."

You are the expert of your life, and my goal is to meet you where you are at. Together, we can find which road works best for you and I will walk beside you on your journey of self-discovery. It is my belief that everyone has tremendous potential and that we all have something unique to give to ourselves, our loved ones and the world as a whole.

As a LGBTQ + member of the community and survivor of past trauma, severe depression, and challenges with substances, my sensitivity to gender related issues along with a deep-rooted personal understanding positions me to be a powerful mental health partner to my clients.
Are you faced with challenges that are overwhelming or goals that just seem out of reach? Do you feel depressed, sad, anxious or wonder why you are not able to move forward in your life? Do you just want to feel better? Are alcohol or other drugs part of the picture that may be impacting your life? My focus is to help people build a framework for success for those wishing to break free of addictions, stigma, past traumas, depression, anxiety, and resolve conflict in relationships. “I love empowering others and supporting them in creating hope and realizing their dreams.” Anything is possible.

I enjoy working with clients who are LGBTQ , seniors, women, artists, people in the midst of divorce, those in grief & people who have experienced complex relational trauma.
You are not broken, you are deeply hurt. It is easy to find yourself in unhelpful patterns & ways of being. This might be due to your nervous system being flooded with anger, fear & despair. In a creative way to survive, you have found self-protection strategies. Unfortunately, these strategies are likely no longer helpful. Part of our work together will be unraveling this muscle memory to reveal how you can live a life that is true to you. YOU become the place of self-awareness, peaceful acceptance & intentional action. As a certified trauma professional & art therapist, I integrate these tools into our therapeutic work.
