While I approach therapy from an interpersonal perspective, I infuse a variety of techniques into sessions, pulling from psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral, and solution-focused traditions.
I employ a developmental perspective in counseling and enjoy working with clients to deepen their understanding of themselves. I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ clients and enjoy supporting people in living their lives as their most authentic selves. I have worked with clients on issues related to anxiety, depression and other mood disorders, eating disorders, substance use, trauma, grief and loss, and other concerns. I endeavor to provide culturally-responsive services, focusing not only on you as an individual client, but the family, community, and broader systems in which we live.

Using a psychodynamic approach, I help you explore what’s bothering you, identify what you want to do about it, and guide you along your path to a better place.
I specialize in working with adults who are interested in self growth and who want an interactive therapist they can trust. My clients, whether individuals, couples, or family groups, expect me to participate in their treatment and to use my professional skills and wisdom to help them make progress in their struggles. There are many reasons we go to therapy: relationships that aren’t working, loss, grief, life changes, anxiety, trauma, self esteem, spiritual crises, existential angst; the list goes on. My clients may be new to therapy or old pros, but they all want to be seen and heard and helped so life feels good again.

I believe the human capacity for change and growth is incredible. Difficult experiences, negative environments, and challenging relationships can distort our connections with ourselves and others. These disconnections can create problems, and I see relationships as powerful change agents--particularly our relationship with ourselves. When clients are given the opportunity to feel heard and understood, healing and growth are possible. To do this, I believe it is vital for us to establish a strong relationship to support the change you would like to make. I provide culturally sensitive therapy to motivated individuals and couples.

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.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Kalamazoo, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
