Hi and welcome! My name is Savannah, and my passion is working with and helping teens and young adults find their inner strength, discover personal resolutions, and cope with life’s ever many changes and difficulties. I enjoy working with clients who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, body image, life transitions/adjustments, relationship challenges, and trauma.
Life can be complicated and challenging at times. Sometimes, an outside perspective or someone to walk along with you through a challenge is needed. I am dedicated to helping empower individuals, couples and families. My approach focuses on developing coping skills, assisting in creating a long-term plan, and getting down in the trenches with you to help find a way out. I am committed to providing a confidential, safe, person centered and nonjudgmental environment where you can openly share your thoughts, feelings, struggles, and goals.
I provide therapy and psychological evaluations (including ADHD testing). I have experience with many types of therapy that research has found to be effective (e.g. cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and motivational interviewing). Having a flexible approach and many tools to choose from helps me find what will be right for you. I also provide supervision.
Life can be challenging and wonderful at the same time. There are so many ups and downs and sometimes you just want someone to listen and remind you that you are going to be okay.

I am a graduate of Loyola University Chicago with a B.S. in Psychology. I am a fully licensed clinical social worker with my Master’s degree from Grand Valley State University.

If you are a teenager, young adult, parent, or spouse you may often experience stress in your life. You may feel less connected, misunderstood, and overwhelmed with work or school. Although some stress is healthy, too much stress makes it even more challenging to create solutions and work through problems. Whatever the issue is, you would like to feel more connected and valued in your relationships, improve your ability to manage your stress and solve problems, overcome previous barriers, and have a better sense of who you are.
Many individual and relational patterns are built from a complex trauma foundation. These patterns keep people cycling through behaviors, emotions, and thinking that feels familiar, however, is no longer working. This can affect people in a variety of ways, such as with a problem behavior, depression, or anxiety. Most people want some sense of control of themselves, the direction of their life, and want fulfilling relationships. The barriers to these needs being met are unique to each individual and once uncovered and understood, can be addressed and overcome.
Congratulations! Just by being here, you are taking the first step towards self-exploration; which takes courage. Finding a therapist can be an anxiety-inducing and overwhelming experience.

I will be an ally and support to you throughout the process of discovery and transformation. I can help you utilize what has worked in the past, as well as teach you new tools to create more peace in your life.
