I involve myself with organizations that promote professional skill and depth of understanding like the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, APA, MPA, and the World Professional Association for Transgender Health.
I have a lifelong interest in collaborating with people wanting to grow toward greater engagement with relationship, optimum expression of life purpose, and balancing aspects of Self. Together, we build a safe space for curiosity about self, beginning where you are, and proceeding at your pace. I see a wide range of people including trauma survivors, artists, and LGBTQ+ people. I have experience working with depression/anxiety; grief; PTSD, dissociation; and life transitions. I don't treat substance abuse. I believe daily pot use stifles growth/change capacity, so I have found that therapy is not very useful until you have quit.

I always knew I wanted to be a therapist, and mental health has always been a source of passion and interest to me. I chose the field of social work due to the heavy emphasis on strengths-based approaches, person in environment theory and empowering people. In order to be truly effective, therapy needs to be a comfortable and safe place, and the client needs to be in charge of the path they take. My role is to help provide that comfortable and safe place, and guide clients in finding their path.

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.
