My approach to counseling is emotionally focused , integrating mindful awareness of the body, and the opportunity, if you wish, to access deeper aspects of yourself through sandtray therapy, simple artistic expression, and dream work .
More than 25 years of counseling experience have taught me that within each of us is an inherent drive toward emotional health. As your therapist, I want to create a safe and caring relationship in which I serve as your companion on a journey toward self-understanding and healing at the level of heart, mind, body and spirit. I work to help people struggling with anxiety, depression, shame, grief, trauma, difficult life transitions, mid-life issues, and career issues.

I work with a combination of modalities including: Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, Emotionally Focused Family Therapy, Organic Intelligence, Positive Psychology, Psycho-Education, Mindfulness, Dyadic Developmental Therapy, and Sensorimotor Therapy.
In a relationship with a partner that leaves you despairing or giving up? Trying to raise a child who melts down over what seems like nothing? Feeling that parts of yourself won't let you move on and experience life as you'd like? How we connect with others, ourselves, or even our spiritual resources can be life-giving or exasperating. I specialize in attachment---the way we connect with those most important to us. I will meet you where you are. I'll work hard to understand what you are experiencing.

I've completed Level I and II training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an evidence-based treatment for trauma as well as specialized training in two science based couples therapies: Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
When we're faced with adversity, we have two choices: to do nothing and hope that things improve on their own or to engage the problem and transform it. My approach to counseling is focused first on listening and then on helping my clients understand themselves and their ultimate concerns in a deeper way so that they can live fuller, happier lives. My practice uses evidence based treatments whenever possible and my clients' comfort and confidentiality are always my main concern.

I view therapy as a collaborate space where it is safe to share life’s difficulties.

I enjoy working with adults and couples. My primary areas of expertise include treating mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, as well as working with adjustment disorders and substance use disorders. Therapy is about helping people through situational life stressors or relationship conflicts.

Oftentimes, the impacts of past pain leave us feeling drained, overwhelmed and confused about our path forward. We can lack a sense of self-worth, after being hurt by the very people who were supposed to take care of us. I help clients reconnect to their inner power to reparent and restore lost parts of themselves. On this journey, I guide clients in reawakening their naturally empowered, vibrant selves. I specialize in working with adults, couples, teens and families seeking healing, connection, and change both inside of themselves and within their closest relationships.

Therapy is a unique experience between the counselor and the client, unlocking the client's potential to be a more genuine version of themselves. People often seek out counseling services in order to gain new perspectives about a recent or past experience, to understand better where they have been, where they are standing, and where it is they want to go. No one has to ever do anything alone, there is always support; counseling offers that support through being heard, as well as exploring and practicing tools to cope with stress that is a part of life.

If you’re looking for a therapist that just nods and asks: “How do you feel about that?”, then you better keep on looking. I have an interactive no BS and no sugar-coating approach that all my clients state has been extremely refreshing and welcoming to them in the therapeutic process. Self-empowerment, radical acceptance, and authentic human connection will be the cornerstone of our work. I utilize strength based, solution focused, and neuroscientific theory to guide us in your journey. This is about you—your stories, successes, traumas, hopes, and infinite wisdom! Sometimes we’ll laugh. Often, we’ll cry. Onward to self discovery!

**2021 Update: I am very busy and cannot regularly accept new clients. Please check for openings during your availability, or to be put on a waitlist.** To stay true to my specialization, I only accept new clients for relationship counseling purposes (or through a personalized referral). This can be for couples counseling, individual counseling, or family therapy that centers around relationship issues. I am most passionate about my work, and more effective, when focusing on these specializations. I also work with many "nontraditional" relationship structures (LGBTQ, non-monogamy, kink, etc), so those are also welcome as a good fit.

If you've been hoping to make a change in your life, the way you get angry, your use of alcohol or drugs, your relationships, your loneliness , it's probably time to talk with someone about making that change. I am a counselor with over 35 years experience helping people successfully deal with such problems. It is surprising how powerful we are when we accept help, understand our behaviors and learn new ways of doing things. Making the time for yourself is the first step.

Everyone struggles from time to time. Whatever has come your way - depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, emotional conflict or crisis - searching for relief is a courageous first step and a sign of great strength, not weakness. By helping people feel comfortable talking about the struggles in their lives, they can figure out ways to make things better. However, this is not easy, especially when you're overwhelmed. By providing real solutions to your struggles, I strive to help you mobilize your strengths and cope effectively with the life challenges you are facing.

Do you have ADHD or suspect you have ADHD? Has social media, yes TikTok/instagram, lead you to suspect you may have ADHD but don't know where to start. I'm passionate about helping you understand ADHD, how it affects YOU and what you can do with it. ADHD is widely misunderstood as a lack of focus or attention. ADHD is more accurately an issue of regulation which includes emotions, impulsivity, money, attention, sensory sensitivity etc. ADHD looks different for everyone, especially women. I work with clients on managing their ADHD symptoms, and also the anxiety and depression that stem from ADHD.

My goal is to help clients achieve improved functioning as quickly as possible. I believe the most powerful transformation comes from a combination of techniques to understand and reset non-adaptive patterns, including neurofeedback, other forms of biofeedback, such as heart rate variability, emotional freedom technique (EFT), and a personality assessment I use called the Enneagram, combined with behaviorally-based counseling, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The combination of these techniques provide the foundation for holistically examining issues that stand in the way of a fuller life.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Kalamazoo Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
