My ideal clients are couples and individuals who are tired of suffering and want to make positive changes in their lives. My clients don't lay on the couch and vent, but rather are willing to roll their sleeves up and work hard to feel better and change. If you have trauma, we will get to the root of it. No more avoidance. If you're in a relationship with poor communication, broken trust and little intimacy we will fix it. We will equalize the power between you both, and draw healthy boundaries individually, and as a couple.

What would it be like to feel like yourself again? So often in life, we push others away when we feel our worst. The things we enjoy quickly depart with them. We are left engulfed in feelings of hopelessness and despair, losing our sense of self and purpose. Although these issues are our responsibility, we don’t need to address them on our own. Therapy can help.I believe that we are not museums meant to preserve our negative experiences. Our past issues can be resolved. Through resolution of past experiences we are able to enter into a loving relationship with ourselves.

I help people who are feeling depressed, feel less depressed. I understand how uncomfortable it can be to feel stuck in depression. Are you having trouble sleeping, eating too little, or too much? Hiding how you really feel inside, not wanting others to know? Others say you have so much to be thankful for, but you just feel guilty and ashamed that you’re not able to feel that way; forcing a smile, but not feeling it inside? There is always a reason for the way we feel, and I can help you figure out what is really going on inside of you. Together we can figure out some ways to help you feel relief.

One of the early questions I ask a new client is, "where are you hoping this relationship will take you?". For some, the answer to this question is clear. They imagine a life where their anxiety or depressive symptoms no longer get in the way of attending school or work, spending time with friends and enjoying their days. Others hope for a time when they feel physically and emotionally well enough to enjoy each day. Many people struggle with a vision for their future. Often, the path behind us is full of wrong turns or the path ahead feels full of obstacles. Regardless of where you are, I will join with you and support your journey.

“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” Leonard Cohen ******* I believe in the transformative power of psychotherapy to reveal the cracks and to illuminate a path to healing and greater fulfillment. I work from a narrative and relational perspective, understanding that every human story is always evolving, and unfolds in relation to others and also within a greater social/cultural context. My clinical point of view is open-minded and non-pathologizing. All human beings are capable and deserving of healing, deep connection and personal growth.

I will have some openings beginning in February; please email me if you are interested and we can meet for a free video consult. I love working with people who are seeking growth and self-understanding. Therapy is hard work. It pushes us to see things in new ways and to explore feelings and behavior patterns. And, hopefully, it leads to feeling healthier and more connected to ourselves, our needs, and in our relationships. I approach therapy from a holistic and integrative perspective--I believe well-being is influenced and impacted by many factors including physical health, genetics, personality, and life experiences.

These last few years of the pandemic have been very difficult for most people. I have seen a surge in anxiety, depression, loneliness, stress on marriages and family relationships, health issues, and loads of despair and grief. The pandemic has seemed to push some of these issues to the front and center for people and they can no longer be avoided or dismissed. It is a sensitive time for people to begin addressing their need for help. It can be so overwhelming and difficult to know how to begin talking about it - especially with someone who is a stranger such as myself.

My intention is to work with you & help you discover your truths, strengths, & the answers you have within you. Through your willingness to change, it is my hope you can grow, self discover, & release negative patterns that don't serve you. In the context of a safe, supportive, therapeutic relationship you have the opportunity to creatively build and identify coping skills, examine strengths and weaknesses, and enhance your ability to problem solve. We can use art/talk therapy,or a combination of both. I also integrate music, writing, or mindfulness techniques into sessions when appropriate to further self exploration.

What type of Leelanau County mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Leelanau County?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
