**Accepting new clients** Strong people ask for help, knowing that everybody has a story and within each of us lies the ability to examine the past so we can move into the future. I encourage you to ask yourself not "what's wrong with me ?" but rather, "what happened to me?" Stop thinking "I need therapy" and start focusing on "I want therapy." Therapy is not about mental illness - it's about mental health. Focus on the fact that therapy is an experience that is normal, natural and a journey others have navigated. Life presents all of us with challenges but if we meet the challange and learn from it then we also grow from it.

All people should have a safe space where he, she, or they can feel accepted for who they are. Finding that space can be difficult. My goal is to create a warm and welcoming environment for each client. Expressing vulnerability, giving trust, making decisions, and creating goals can be nerve-wreaking. I strive to create a space where you and I can work and grow together. Therapy itself can present in many forms, sometimes we may laugh, cry, reflect, amongst other emotions, all of which are therapeutic. I look forward to helping clients work towards the life he, she, or they want.

We've all been through a lot. How are you feeling? Experiencing prolonged stress, trauma, disappointment or loss can have a negative impact on mood and functioning. It can affect how our brains and nervous systems function. Do you want support while you practice skills for coping, soothing your nervous system or rewiring your brain? Often therapy is a messy and sometimes painful process of feeling expression, problem solving, and learning new ideas for thinking and behavior. The work of therapy starts with receiving support, building trust and then seems to require a certain amount of courage, and resolve...ending in a better YOU!

Often family history and life experiences have taught us unhealthy skills of dealing with the painful events in our lives. You may have found yourself in place where you are reacting in ways you never thought you would and not living the life you want. It's common to not even know why you are feeling the way you do. Exhaustion, frustration, anger and being easily overwhelmed are just a few common indicators there is something going on with your emotional self. If you are struggling know there is a different way.

In my role as a clinical therapist I have found my passion in helping others remember and re-experience their own strengths and courage. I use a combination of several clinical interventions that have a strong solution focused baseline with plenty of room carved out for processing and simply feeling what needs to be felt. In my work I focus heavily on those who are seeking to recover from trauma, the impacts of severe and persistent mental health symptoms, religious trauma, sexual abuse as well as those who face anxiety, depression and ADHD symptoms.

Sometimes life can be challenging, to the point that you might feel overwhelmed with everything that is occurring and finding someone to talk to can be difficult at best. I use Integrative psychotherapy techniques in my work with adolescents, adults, & couples which allows me to consider the individual characteristics, preferences, needs, abilities, spiritual beliefs, & motivation level of each individual client and presenting concern. By combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory & research I aim to be more flexible & inclusive, making therapy something to look forward to.

As an LCSW therapist, I have greatly improved the lives of children and their families by understanding that each family and child is unique. I believe the success of every child begins within the family unit. Prior to becoming an MSW therapist, I worked for 15+ years as a Montessori teacher guiding the development of children.

There are times in our lives when problems can feel overwhelming, painful, and difficult to face alone. Relying on friends and family may not be a viable option. During our sessions, you can expect me to take time to get to know you & provide a safe place for you to express your thoughts, feelings, & reactions that arise in and outside of therapy. You can also expect me to work directly in the present moment re an issue, as well as revisit your past re the issue. Whether it's a challenging situation, or you want to change direction in your life, I look forward to establishing a collaborative relationship to achieve your goals.

What type of Okemos 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Okemos?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
