Are you grieving? Or facing cancer, other health issues, or life after treatment? Or are you tired of feeling anxious, frustrated, overwhelmed, or stressed? Maybe you're dealing with adult child or elderly parent issues, or having relationship problems. Or maybe you long to make changes in your life but feel stuck, unable to move forward. I have training and almost 20 years of experience helping people with these and other issues. I'd like to help you find what you need to experience yourself and your life in a way that feels more centered, confident, and satisfying.

I believe that therapy is a journey- a choice to make a purposeful life change. Together we will develop a plan to meet your needs. From the first session we will work to identify treatment goals that directly relate to what brings you into therapy! Your willingness to change, to have regular and timely attendance, and to bring openness and trust into our time together is valuable. I have worked with families, children and couples in many different settings including residential, in-home, and out-patient. I'm now in a private group practice setting in Portage MI.

Life is a roller coaster isn't it? You must be experiencing a down time to be here looking for a therapist. How do we hang on in the tough times when we feel tired and overwhelmed? I had to learn myself how to manage anxiety, depression, panic attacks, childhood sexual abuse, trauma, and grief. I now consider it a privilege to walk alongside others who are looking to deal with their own concerns. I use traditional behavior therapy models like CBT, DBT, solution-focused and trauma-informed therapy. I also use humor as one of my own coping mechanisms and incorporate it into my counseling strategy. Let's talk and see if I can help.

I am particularly draw to helping people who have experienced trauma, are suffering from mood disorders, eating problems and the challenges of parenting and love relationships.

Hello. I work with late teens, young adults and adults as they meet the challenge of difficult emotions such as: sadness, anxiety, loneliness, frustration, anger, fear, disappointment, grief. Navigating what a full life has to offer can be complicated and at times surprising; relationship problems, school issues, parenting concerns, family conflict, multicultural issues can leave us feeling uncertain and alone. Life transitions can bring their own unique challenges: marriage/partnering, pregnancy, childbirth, medical and/or mental health diagnoses, divorce, blending family, death and dying each can challenge our usual coping skills.

I primarily work with children, adolescents, and families. Many of my clients have struggled with life transitions, symptoms of anxiety, depression symptoms, and social skills. Parents are invited to come to sessions to support skills inside and outside the counseling session. Collaborating with the family supports allows for skill acquisition and client empowerment.

You are unique in all the world! There is no one just like you with your story or life. Your family, pets, friends, community--where you came from--what you have overcome and endured-all these make you the unique person you are. At some time you may wish to turn the page on your story. My therapy involves walking with you while you decide where you want to go from here--who the person is that you want to be--how you want your life and story to change. I will listen and challenge, support and invite you to learn new skills and growth.

I specialize in treating depression and anxiety as well as serious mental illnesses with teens through older adults. Facing life transitions such as adolescence, graduating high school and college, entering the professional world, becoming a new parent, considering a career change, or entering retirement can weigh heavily on one's mind and I'm here to help. In addition to an MSW, I hold an MDiv which equips me to provide a Christian counseling experience for those desiring to have their spirituality incorporated into treatment. I look at and hear the person in front of me, seeking to understand what is said and unsaid.

Ambivalence is what we experience when having mixed feelings about something or someone. Does this describe you? If so, you are in good company. Ambivalence is the reason most people enter into therapy. Many feel torn when it comes to making change, and for good reason. It's hard letting go of familiar relationships or ways of coping- no matter how destructive. If you're yearning to break free of harmful ways, but afraid to embrace the uncertainty of change, you do not have to go it alone.

I believe that although many clients have similarities, each client is different and deserves individualized intervention strategies. I can assist each client in developing their specific box of tools to address their personal issues and to meet their counseling goals. I believe that the best view of therapy is a holistic view. A hammer is an effective tool until a wrench is needed. A toolbox with many diverse tools has the best chance at repairing a multitude of concerns. I will offer evidenced based strategies as well as experimental strategies that are tied to Art & Science.

I have a deep passion for community development, culture diversity and human connection. In my experience my clients know themselves better than anyone, they are their own best resource when it comes to choosing the right treatment for them. I see our time together as a joint venture, our knowledge combined creates the solutions and tools needed to uncover patterns and emotions they may not even be aware of. I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual. My role as a therapist is to support you to make choices that empower you, and help you explore and resolve your current predicaments, or diagnosis.
