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.

There isn’t a one size “fix” all package for mental health. What works for one; may not work for another. I will be the first one to tell you that I am not the expert in your pain, your life, or your journey. You are. I am simply here to walk alongside you and be a resource for your growth. I believe one of the hardest and bravest things you can do for yourself, is to not only understand your story, but to continue growing from it.

Life often teaches many of us that personal growth and change can be a struggle. Oftentimes circumstance finds us taking two steps forward and then one step back. If you're tired of lacking discipline and could benefit from some motivation I can create a partnership with you. I will work with you to increase your self-determination, self-awareness, and self-acceptance. I will help you understand how our current ways of thinking, feeling, behaving, and relating are tied to our family of origin and the programming we received as a child.

It takes a lot of courage to decide to seek help with something that is bothering you or that is a struggle within your life. I find it to be an honor to work alongside my clients in their own journey of healing. Therapy is different for every single person, and an element I have found important, is to operate as a team together with trust and rapport. As a therapist, I am client centered with a focus on building a safe and trusting relationship with my clients, aiding in the ability to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences. I provide alternative views, and often times will encourage continued work outside of session.

Reaching out for help takes courage. It means that you are able to admit that you do not have all the answers and have the strength to acknowledge that you may be struggling. Experiencing personal conflicts can make you feel unsteady, anxious, and unsure about how to move forward. It is during these times, I believe that showing up authentically is the first step in moving forward. I believe that leaning into vulnerability and tuning into yourself is key to a transformative journey. Therapy is a safe place to remember who you are and discover the inherent power you hold to create a life that you will simply enjoy living.

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.
