In my 22 years as a psychologist I have sought to work collaboratively with individuals in emotional healing and personal growth and decision-making. I have accompanied many people on parts of their journeys toward self-discovery, self-acceptance and empowerment as they have experienced depression, anxiety and confusion. Those who are shy,unsure of themselves or interested in the interplay of psychological, physical, spiritual and cultural influences on their lives are often particularly good matches for my style. I also bring life experience as mother, educator, developer of a cross-cultural youth and family counseling program, and religious leader..

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!

Life’s intense challenges can be overwhelming to deal with on your own. You may fear that acknowledging certain issues or feelings will overwhelm you. And many of us have learned that in order to be accepted, we must suppress our true feelings. This suppression of our real feelings, experiences, challenges may influence our behavior in unpredictable and negative ways and leave us feeling isolated, hopeless and alone. No matter what you’re feeling or facing, you are not alone and there is hope. Working with a skilled therapist leads to healing and growth.

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.

Whether dealing with the effects of trauma, a loss, struggling with anxiety or depression, or coping with a life transition, it can help to explore concerns in a safe and supportive environment. I believe that a therapist’s role is to be a listening ear, provide feedback, offer support, and provide resources as clients explore their concerns, identify solutions, and develop plans of action that best fit their chosen life journeys.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Okemos?
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.
