Hello All. I am a former English teacher/tutor turned licensed therapist. I love listening to stories and helping people figure out their strengths, abilities and goals. I specialized in trauma while I was in school and have worked with both children and adults. I have worked with the amazing Northern Michigan Children’s Assessment Center in Roscommon as well as with Adult Services and the wonderful people at DHHS. My background is well rounded, and while I tend to lean toward the Marvel Universe v. DC, I can talk a mean game of basketball and enjoy Sunday football with the family. I look forward to hearing your stories and needs.

I eventually moved back to the West Branch community and gained experience working with individuals experiencing trauma, substance use, and severe mental illness. I obtained my Master's degree in Social Work from Michigan State in 2019.

I have a special interest in working with women in the prenatal, postpartum and early parenting stages of their relationship with their children as well as supporting a parent's own changing identity.
Are you a new parent or preparing for a new baby and wondering how you are going to adjust to the new normal with your worries or depressed mood? Do you currently struggle with anxiety or depression and wonder how the new baby's arrival might impact your moods and well-being? Are you struggling to feel connected with your little one? Do you feel more irritable, frustrated and unhappy more than you thought you would feel during this phase of your life?

I work with people in many walks of life, and specialize in working with women , mothers of young children, and older teens/young adults, and would love to help you on your journey of healing and self-discovery.
“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.”-Rumi. You matter. What you think and feel matters. How you are treated matters. What you have been through matters. Perhaps you are a new mom, feeling overwhelmed and scared to admit things aren’t picture perfect. Perhaps you’re going though a hard transition, and feeling alone, lost, or confused. Maybe you’re no longer sure a relationship, or a job, is right for you, and are tired of not feeling seen or heard, valued or understood. Maybe constant worrying, or a hurtful past, is keeping you from living your life the way you want-with laughter, love, and hope.

**California, Michigan and Delaware licensed. ** Psychotherapy is a journey of discovery. It is a walk toward the self. The purpose of psychotherapy is to assist the patient with knowing the Self: their intrinsic goodness, wisdom and strength found within. For women and couples, this requires a setting aside of assumptions about the self and others in order for curiosity to emerge. In psychotherapy, we explore what brings meaning to life and what creates value. We ask, “Do my actions bring me closer to the person I want to be?” As I assist the patient with shoring up coping skills we also explore the wondrous road back to the Self.

As a mental health therapist with over ten years of experience, I offer outpatient therapy services to children, families and women .
Life can just be downright hard as we are thrown challenges that we must maneuver in life. Discovering the source of the challenge and recognizing it is the first step. Then the journey begins. I like to refer to the journey as a river. Life can be smooth at times and calm and peaceful, but at other times you may feel like you are on a whitewater rapid. It is in those times, when you may feel like you are losing control that it is helpful to have someone help you navigate the waters. Together we can create a plan to break down barriers, maneuver the rapids or high current times and strive to meet the desired outcome.

I look forward to supporting other Black women , children, and other folks on the margins (LGBTQIA, disability, neurodivergence) as they work to navigate American society. I'm delighted to offer mental health care that speaks to concerns of marginalization, racism, sexism, and navigating late capitalism. I want to support folks who are told they don't matter, their work isn't important, and that they are their own problems. We will work together to dismantle the baked in -isms that are so harmful to our mental health. I am here to support you through depression and anxiety, suicidality, and life transitions, writ large.

I especially enjoy helping women discover their worth and develop their potential.
Everyone who takes the risk to try counseling needs to be listened to and their unique story heard. During counseling sessions you will feel valued, supported, and equipped to face the struggles of life. Together we'll figure out how you can move forward, if you feel stuck, and reach your goals. We'll use your strengths to overcome what may be holding you back, and holistic strategies for healing and growth. Whether dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulty, or some other issue, we can work together to develop solutions. As a therapist I offer you a fresh perspective, some new skills, guidance, and hope.

I provide specialized therapy to individuals/adults, children, adolescents, as well as women during the pregnancy and postpartum period.
Welcome. I am so happy you are here. As humans we are extremely resilient and adaptive to our surroundings. At times, this can be a gift and it can also lead us on a path that is no longer serving us. Therapy has the potential to change the quality of our lives, as well as for those around us, for generations to come. I specialize in guiding people back to themselves, while setting the conditions for healing to take place. Given the right conditions our bodies and minds can heal. You already carry everything you need from within. My approach is rooted in authenticity, compassion, and client empowerment.

Hello! I primarily offer video/phone sessions with no set up needed. With just the click of a link I provide, we are face to face and it is often just as engaging as in person. My areas of focus are stress, anxiety, grief and loss, veterans, parents of teens and younger (we have raised 5 and fostered), teens 15 and up, women with intimacy/sexuality concerns (drive, guilt, shame, no desire) and those looking for life coaching. If this meets your need and you are looking for a counselor/coach who is down to earth, fun and not very conventional, you are in the right place. Check out my short video to see if I seem right for you.

I am a woman of color who understands how mental health is stigmatized.
“At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can” -Frida Kahlo. This quote has helped myself and others realize that we’re able to handle more than we believe we can. However, this doesn’t mean you have to do it alone or feel as if you are failure for reaching out for help. Therapy is creating a safe space where you can focus on your personal needs. It is a place where you can practice selfcare and be the positive change you aim to be. Therapy allows you to be open and honest with yourself. Finally, it is a place where you can be selfish and heard without any judgment or misunderstanding. Let's fight the stigma!

As a transgender woman myself, providing a space to explore, grow, and/or cope with related concerns is of interest to me.
There’s such a unique opportunity that therapy provides. I’m really proud of you for even considering it, because for most people vulnerability is not easy. And in my opinion, vulnerability is necessary, both from the therapist and yourself. The way that I approach therapy is not just as a means to relieve your concerns, but as an opportunity to practice wellness going forward. After all, our needs are changing all the time, so having the skills, or knowledge, or validation that helps you navigate whatever challenges might come, both in and out of therapy, is important.

What type of Houghton Lake 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 Houghton Lake?
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.
