I have been practicing psychotherapy since 2008. With the help of psychotherapy, you can examine the obstacles you have faced in your life and improve self-awareness to live the best version of yourself. In psychotherapy, you can learn the skills to regulate your emotions, change your unconscious habits, and begin to cultivate feelings of self-worth to find direction and satisfaction in your life.

Are you here because you feel tired, stuck, and often at odds with yourself? Because – despite feeling desperate to feel something different – you find yourself in the same old patterns? Replaying the same painful memories, worries, and negative self-talk? Maybe you've tried self-care practices, meditation, or yoga and they helped. But you can't shake the feeling that there's more to explore on your healing path. I'm here for folks looking to heed that wild call to look inward.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a humanistic approach, which means that I deeply value the possibility and uniqueness of every individual. I am passionate about dismantling systemic oppression and white-body supremacy. I believe that healing begins with unconditional positive regard, and so I invite clients to share their unique experience(s), in an environment of openness without judgment and without criticism. From this place, I believe each person can begin to make personal shifts toward discovering and becoming their most authentic self.

Good therapy can be transformative. Why is that? Neuroscience, attachment theory, and real life experience agree: all growth happens in relationships. In the safety and trust of a well-established therapeutic relationship, we can address your deepest problems and help you take control of your life. By working together to re-work relational and emotional patterns, uncover internal conflicts, deepen emotional capacities, and grieve old hurts, we can change your life. As a compassionate and experienced therapist with advanced training, I know how powerful and effective good therapy can be.

Perhaps you are at a crossroads in life and are struggling to find your path. You are a perfectionist with high achieving tendencies however, feel unable to calm your anxiety, depression, or negative self-talk. Your successes are undermined by a voice in your head stating, “I don’t think I’m good enough or I don’t have anything left to give.” You have successfully navigated many of life’s difficult decisions yet, your self-esteem and confidence are holding you back.

You’re tired of feeling like a failure when it comes to your life and you’re ready to nourish yourself. I know this might be hard to believe, but the truth is, our bodies are so wise. I am here to guide you through possibly the most terrifying thing you will ever do, learning to listen to your body and process its experience. I specialize in working with teens and young adults who have experienced childhood or recent sexual trauma. Talk therapy is great, learning to express emotions through art-making and somatic body movement is better. With me, you can do both.

You're doing all the right things for self-care but rarely feel recharged. You may have been to therapy before, and while it was hopefully helpful, you keep finding yourself stuck in the same old patterns. You've been called "sensitive" your whole life and often feel misunderstood. You feel drained and depleted at the end of the day because everyone is always needing something from you, yet you have trouble sleeping. You struggle to show yourself the same empathy and kindness you so easily give others. You frequently feel overwhelmed and worried, are hard on yourself, and feel guilty saying "no" and setting boundaries. I got you.

What type of Royal Oak 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 Royal Oak?
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.
