I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and earned my master's degree in counseling from Eastern Michigan University. I have 20+ years of experience working with diverse populations within the human service field. I offer a person-centered approach when helping people cope with grief, trauma, long-term/terminal illnesses, life transitions, and self-worth issues. I consider myself to be an EMDR Therapist instead of viewing EMDR as a tool.

My goal is to create a space of mutual trust and respect, which allows my clients and I to work together to explore their inner most fears, goals, and ultimately what is holding them back from creating the life they want. Each person that enters my office is treated with compassion and kindness. You will not be judged for the path you've taken. My intention is to help you build a healthy relationship with yourself, understanding of what is making it difficult for you, and build on your strengths to help you. You do not have to walk this journey alone, lets do it together.

As I think about how change occurs for a person, I am struck by the recognition that life is full of opportunities for change, for individual growth. Sometimes these opportunities are not clear to the person because the trauma, personal or relational difficulty, fear, depression, or anxiety being experienced can be so overwhelming that one's ability to take action is clouded. In my work, I have become very mindful of the resiliency of the human spirit. I have witnessed this resiliency in times of trauma, pain, and loss. My goal is to provide you with a safe space to address your concerns.

I believe that therapy is a personal journey. I provide clients with a safe and non-judgmental environment that allows them to contemplate and explore all aspects of themselves. This contemplation and exploration allows clients to identify their own strengths and weaknesses. Once these areas are identified clients can work on fostering their strengths and begin to focus on overcoming internal barriers that may be impeding them from reaching their fullest potential.

Difficult life experiences can take away our sense of safety and make us feel detached from the world and others. Examples of these events include involvement with the foster care system, family separation, chronic illnesses, military deployments and readjustment, and sexual trauma/military sexual trauma. I have experience helping individuals and families process these traumatic events to assist them in reducing the negative effects the symptoms of trauma can have on survivors and the people that they love.

By addressing women's issues through feminist theory and humanistic psychology, my practice focuses on the woman's experience. By nurturing connections that can encourage recovery from chronic PTSD, trauma, sexual assault, general burnout, caretaking burnout, generalized anxiety, depression, grief, loss, and hopelessness, I can help you find your Inner badass. The pressure for women to perform at the highest levels in all aspects of their lives is at a breaking point. The emotional costs are very high! It has an impact on all relationships. I can help you say No to the things you feel obligated to do.

Starting therapy can be daunting, but you don’t have to go through it alone. My goal as a therapist is to foster a safe, non-judgmental space that allows you to gain insight into your presenting concerns and facilitates progress towards a healthy, meaningful life. Therapy is not one size fits all. I believe in an integrative collaborative counseling approach, pulling from a variety of evidence based research that tailors treatment to each individual’s preferences, values, and goals.

You can probably come up with 100 reasons why not, but therapy is an investment in you. How long will you be the observer of your life rather than a participant? I use a collaborative approach, which enables clients the necessary skills to better separate feelings from thinking and verbalize emotions versus acting them out. I can provide you a safe, individualized space to express yourself without judgment. Together we will honestly and openly explore past messages that contribute to current behaviors you would like to change. I offer services in Canton, Southfeild & Livonia, the time is now, call today!

Attachment-based Therapists

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
