I would like to help my clients on their journey of self-discovery. I feel it is important for one to understand all that makes them who they are and how they function, so that when they make goals, they are able to achieve them. If you are struggling through anxiety, depression, trauma, or low self-worth, then I want to work with you, whether it means working with you and your partner, your family or on your own. When you are able to understand yourself and your needs, then the tools and skills needed to help you are easier to select and be more useful in our counseling together.

I have training in helping people who have experienced trauma or stress in their life, teaching skills to help clients feel more in control of their emotions, and guiding people to learn what coping skills they can use to get through more difficult times in their life!

I offer online counseling to adolescents & young adults (15-35), TGNC+people of any age, & family counseling.
We live in a society that was not made for most of us to survive or thrive in. We are constantly being told by our families, communities and society that we aren't good enough, we are too much, and that we have to change our authentic selves in order to be productive and successful in this world. This can lead to anxiety, stress, depression and other mental health struggles. But we don't have to fall into this. We can be ourselves. We can be happy. Not Like Them is for those people who are done trying to fit in and instead want to embrace their authentic self and live their life for them and them alone.

As a therapist, I pull from several modalities, including emotionally-focused therapy (EFT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), narrative therapy, compassion-focused therapy (CFT), and the internal family systems (IFS) model.
I'm a mental health therapist at Wild Ferns Wellness Center in Lansing, MI. My mission as a therapist is to provide my clients a safe, affirming, accessible environment – to fall apart, to unmask, to take up space. I welcome clients of all backgrounds, but I especially love doing this work with queer, fat, and neurodivergent folks. I center fat liberation, abolition, and social justice in all the work I do. Through everything, I seek to walk alongside my clients and help them cultivate growth and hope.

Welcome! Starting therapy takes courage, but you are worth it! We often get stuck in negative thought patterns, communication breakdown, family conflict, or just need support navigating a difficult stage of life. These can prevent us from moving forward and living the life we desire. I practice from a strength-based, client-centered perspective using evidence-based treatment methods. A client once told me "therapy is like creating a painting of all my experiences, thoughts and feelings. It was then that I could see the beauty and the struggle - my strengths and areas where I needed to grow."

You've tried everything else, why not therapy? You may struggle with panic attacks, racing thoughts, trouble sleeping at night, and an inability to focus. Or, you dread getting out of bed in the morning. Maybe you feel hopeless, helpless, and alone. You struggle to find meaning in life and may even feel suicidal at times. Living with bipolar disorder can feel like a roller coaster. When you’re not depressed, you feel so high you could do anything! But when you’re really elevated, you might do things that cause serious problems after. These issues can affect relationships, work, or family .

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
