I like to the heart of the matter quickly and then work with my clients to co-creative solutions tailored to their specific needs. My clients describe being in therapy with me as being involved in 'deeper work.' The deeper work may be related to the past, but it also could be doing a deeper dive into your current life and finding healthier ways to cope. I am trained in leadership assessment and coaching. I also consult with family -owned businesses.

Couples with young kiddo are particularly at risk for marriage and family strife because they are so busy, and because there is so much that is new to their brains, emotions and relationship. Figuring out how to be both mom and dad as well as husband and wife is often overwhelming and troubling. Tension builds when the relationship energy gets split between kiddos needs (and there are a lot of them!) and marriage needs (and those are valid as well). The energy to figure out how to integrate all those needs, wants, wishes becomes divided and divisive. Disconnected and discontent brew and relationship trouble stews. What to do?

Sometimes, the reasons why partners become upset with each other run deeper than the present circumstances. When partners persist in doing or saying things that upset each other over and over again, there is often something more at stake than meets the eye. Stop feeling stuck in the same old problem cycle. I have over 30 years helping couples, individuals, and families find new solutions to old problems. I have found my post-graduate training in marriage and family therapy to be a valuable resource in helping others achieve their goals and potential. I have also presented at national conferences.

and master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and have been working with clients for over 27 years.
Looking for a change? Stressed, sad, overwhelmed? Relationship troubles? Feel out of control? Want to feel more confident? Calm and content? At ease in relationships? More balanced? I work with clients in Michigan who feel that things are slowly creeping or rapidly spiraling out of control. I know how difficult it can be to ask for help and try to instill hope and specific, creative strategies for change in a relaxed environment. Therapy is a way to "unstick" the problem areas in your life. I help develop goals and sort out thoughts and challenges that get in the way.

Our lives are stories and we all want them to be stories worth telling, that give us hope. Maybe you long to rewrite the story you are living. I believe everyone has the ability to change their story. Whether you are a couple, a family , or an individual, you can have hope. I desire to walk alongside you in your struggles and help you to forge a new path. Sometimes all it takes is a listening ear; sometimes it takes long, hard work. But you have the choice-to step out in courage and to start writing a new story.

In addition, I strive to provide an environment where diverse identities are welcomed and cherished as we seek to know you better within the context of your family , culture and the wider world.
You have a story, and it makes sense that you feel, believe, act and react as you do. Change and growth rarely occur in anything that resembles a straight line and being mean to yourself really does not help. If you want to believe these statements but are finding it difficult, I would love an opportunity to meet with you. I am a fully licensed psychologist and enjoy working with adolescents and adults with a wide range of concerns. I believe that therapy occurs within a partnership where together we will make educated decisions about how to approach your goals based on your specific life circumstances, needs, values, and strengths.

I utilize interests, abilities, and passions to provide services that are engaging, comfortable, and impactful. I believe that children and adolescents thrive best in therapy when they are allowed to express themselves in the way that is most natural for them.

I am a fully licensed psychologist in the State of Michigan and Dipomate staus is maintained through the American Colege of Forensic examiners, specializing in family forensic issues such as Divoce/Custody of Parental rights issues.
An individual once asked what I did for a living and what it taught me. After a moment, I offered spending time with people that life has stomped on and I learned how resilient people can be. Professional experience has focussed upon treatment and evaluation for those who have faced severe life trauma. This has included combat veterans, abuse victims, as well as medical and environmental catastrophe. A respect for families and children under stress prompted work with issues such as divorce, custody, parental rights and adoption. Experience with militay personel, and others who were resilient under extreme stress fostered work in assessing and develping leadership in roles such as corporate psychology and career development.

I specialize in a family systems style of therapy.
I believe it is a difficult decision to reach out for support from another person. In so doing, therapy not only needs to be a gentle guidance towards a happier lifestyle, but it also needs to incorporate challenges. In working with individuals, couples and families, I enjoy creating a balance of both of these concepts. Shifting our perceptions and changing our behaviors is not a simple process for anyone. I work with parents, teenagers and even our littlest people during stressful life situations including depression, anxiety, anger management, marital issues, women's issues, and processing traumatic events.

Whether the transition is the death or loss of a loved one, workplace or financial stress, the birth of a child, or a challenging relationship/ family dynamic, we can work together to address those overwhelming feelings.
Even though transitions are a part of all of our lives, they sometimes stir up old pain or are just too overwhelming to navigate without some help. You deserve the time and support to work through it and counseling can provide that for you. I believe in a person centered, interpersonal, cognitive behavioral and strength based counseling approach. I have over 14 years of experience using these approaches working with individuals of all ages dealing with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship issues, chronic illnesses and transitions at all stages of life.
