I am a fully licensed Professional Counselor and I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ), Marriage & Couple’s Counseling, Trauma-Based CBT , Family Systems Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, as well as many other modalities.
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.

My treatment approach is centered in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ) and Person-Centered Therapy to provide unconditional positive regard in the therapeutic relationship and further identify thoughts, feelings, and emotions that may impact current daily behaviors.
Everyone has a story that matters. Through a collaborative approach to therapeutic treatment, we can work to establish a safe, encouraging, and trusting environment to promote personal growth. I believe our counseling relationship can help recognize client strengths, goals, and potential. When exploring current ways of thinking or behaving, we can further identify positive solutions that can be maintained over time. It is an honor to be a steppingstone in your journey to healing and I take responsibility in providing the best care to fit your needs.

I primarily employ Cognitive -Behavioral Therapy and Child-Centered Play Therapy in my sessions, depending on the needs of the client.
My ideal client is one that is struggling but wants to improve. Neurodevelopmental disorders are my JAM! ADHD, Learning Disabilities, and Autism Spectrum Disorders is where I direct much of my clinical experience. It's important to me that my clients (and their parents/families/teachers) understand the uniqueness of their disorder and how to turn a perceived deficit into a SUPERPOWER. All children are wonderful gifts, and I love helping children discover and embrace their best selves. A diagnosis does not define you, your child, or your family.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Kalamazoo or for a Kalamazoo CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
