I use several therapeutic approaches including mindfulness, CBT, and ACT to help clients navigate through their issues and do not believe in a one size fits all approach to therapy.
If you are ready to find more joy in your life, I am ready to help guide you! My work as a therapist began as a doula and supporting families through the transition to parenthood continues to be an important part of my work, but the struggles of parenthood go beyond the postpartum period and I'm here for all of it.

Together we will develop new and viable solutions while walking through discomfort toward healing, forgiveness and acceptance .
Accepting NEW clients! We specialize in working with African American/Black, BIPOC adults, couples and teens (14 and up) who press forward despite exhaustion and discomfort; ignore heavy feelings to stop from lashing out or cutting people off; those relied upon by many but supported by few; the “over-analyzers” paralyzed by decision fatigue; the fearful, hopeless and numb; the angry, broken and misunderstood. You are welcome here. We endeavor to help you discover the person hiding beneath the protective layers life has demanded while supporting you in your journey toward thriving, not just surviving.

The evidence based practice approaches that I often utilize are cognitive behavioral therapy, cognitive processing therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
Let’s be honest. People don't care what you know until they know that you care. I have been in your position before. Shuffling through profiles with uncertainty of if I would finally find someone who understands and can help. My empathy derives from being where you are before. We all face stumbling blocks in life. Noticing unhealthy relationship patterns? Interested in coping skills and boundary setting? Have you experienced trauma? Had difficulties moving forward due to grief/loss? Together, we can process concerns and meet realistic goals. There is no time better than now to become a better version of yourself.

Hi, my name is Baylee! I'm a Clinical Therapist Intern studying at Wayne State University. Our thoughts and experiences have so much influence over our behaviors. What if we could work with our thought patterns instead of against them? Life is heavy and emotions can feel out of control at times. I'm here to help! I can teach you ways to cope with those big feelings and live a more authentic life. I pull from several therapeutic approaches including MBCT (mindfulness based cognitive therapy), ACT ( acceptance and commitment therapy), and traditional CBT.

I practice Acceptance and Commitment therapy as an extension of cognitive behavioral therapy to incorporate mindfulness strategies and coping skill development.
As a clinical therapist with over 35 years of experience, I work with adults, families, children, and adolescents. I specialize in treating children and adolescents with anxiety, depression, life transitions, A.D.H.D, as well as family systems issues such as parenting issues and school related issues. Developing social skills and coping skill development is also a focus of my practice. While I integrate a number of clinical approached, my experience as a clinician, researcher, and school social worker has taught me to rely heavily on treatments that have demonstrated effectiveness

Throughout my previous career in the medical field and now as a therapist, the opportunity to help people has always been my passion. If you want to own the direction of your life and address the issues that are keeping you off track, I would love to help. Using multiple approaches to therapy, I have the knowledge, freedom, and flexibility to meet my client where they’re at, rather than applying a standardized, “one size fits all” method.

The modalities I use are Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution-Focus, Dialectical Behavior therapy, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy.
I believe therapy is a great way to help you turn the pain you feel today into the strength you feel tomorrow. My philosophy is simple “I help people become an expert on one subject, themselves”. We as human beings are very complex and often need help to navigate through stress, trauma, and life challenges. I witnessed first hand how therapy can change the trajectory of one’s life. I am committed to working alongside my clients to help them find their inner healing and peace. I have worked with many different cultures, genders, and people from different backgrounds.

Many believe that events, conditions, people and situations cause distress. However, as simple as it may sound, it is our own thoughts, beliefs and perceived meanings of these things that cause distress. I teach individuals how to recognize unhelpful thoughts, behaviors and triggers that maintain undesirable feelings. With added emphasis on problem-solving, acceptance and mindfulness, I assist you in gaining the tools you need to become your own therapist. You've taken at least 2 steps already 1) making the decision to obtain professional support and 2) researching professionals. Why not take the next step and make the call?

My passion and commitment are to help individuals and couples become whole in every area of their life; so they can be the best versions of their selves. I lead each session with empathy, warmth, and focus; so that we can get to the “root" of the problem, which often leads to additional stress, depression, and anxiety. My grounding belief is that we are all broken in different ways and i​n different places, but you do not have to remain broken.

Many of us seek out therapy for different reasons; to gain better insight about ourselves and others, to be able to see the bigger picture more clearly, or to meet specific goals. I aim to offer a space where you can share without holding back, and without judgment, and where we can collaborate in gaining insight into impactful, long-held patterns and beliefs.

Making a choice to attend therapy is never easy. One of the bravest things you can do is to understand your own story, pain, and trauma. I believe many people suffer in silence and I want to be the first person to tell you—I’m ready to listen and walk with you on your journey. My goal is to create a safe space as we collaborate to address your presenting concerns, such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, adjustment concerns, and/or trauma. Life often takes us on a difficult road leading us to find new ways to manage, work through, or create new options.

Do you feel stuck, like your days are playing on repeat? Do you find yourself going through the motions and struggling to find meaning and fulfillment in life? Are you exhausted from the impact of discrimination or prejudice you face daily? Are you a high-functioning achiever, who silently struggles with not feeling good enough? Do you have trouble setting healthy boundaries, and feel repeatedly taken advantage of? Do you struggle opening up to others for fear of judgment? Have you experienced "church hurt" or religious abuse that has left you with trauma? Life is a wild ride filled with amazing moments, and devastating heartbreaks.

What the hell are boundaries?!? If you've ever felt like this...you aren't alone. Craving that balance between work, social life, romantic relationships, family dynamics, and remembering to squeeze in self-care time when you can! But with all of that said...what does it mean to have "healthy boundaries?" Maybe there are events from your past, a breakup, loss, divorce, transition, diagnosis, trauma, etc. Lots of unresolved feelings are creeping in & you're feeling triggered. Where do you even begin? You've developed ways to cope, power through & keep yourself safe over time, but it sounds like it's time to open your toolbox back up!

It's more than worrying. It's more than stress. Anxiety is getting in your way-affecting you at work, at school, or in your relationships. Racing or obsessive thoughts may make it next to impossible to focus or be present in your life. These feelings may cause you to avoid things you love, make you fear your own thoughts, or get in the way of healthy relationships. Your anxiety may cause physical symptoms or a general sense of doom or unease. This can be frustrating or absolutely terrifying. With empathy, honesty, a sense of humor, and respect, I can help you be free of fear!

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Southfield will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
