Depression can seem scary and lonely. Anxiety may prevent you from having new experiences. Your past trauma may be impacting your ability to trust others. It may be hard for you to convey your emotions or thoughts. My goal is to help individuals not fear past experiences and current emotional states but rather learn from them. Struggling with mental health can be isolating and I would like to provide you with a nonjudgmental, safe-space to help you overcome your struggles while learning tools to help you grow and heal. I also have experience helping couples to communicate more effectively and reestablish intimacy.

Is your child always moving? Trouble focusing? Outbursts when told no? Trouble in school & relationships? Trauma can impact a child’s ability to successfully function in daily life. A trauma focused occupational therapist (OT) works with children exposed to substances or high stress in utero, witness to substance use, high stress environments, neglect, medical trauma, and exposure to abuse or community violence in early childhood. A Trauma Specialized OT works to address the physical responses to trauma both independently and in partnership with individual trauma therapy to address both brain and body aspects of trauma healing.

Therapy is a wonderful opportunity to gently witness, learn, and grow upon your own individual path. Often times, the circumstances leading someone to seek a healing relationship are both difficult and hopeful. Within the counseling relationship, we are able to identify and honor patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors from a place of understanding and empowerment. The healing transformation is able to occur naturally and gently from this gentle place of self compassion.

It’s hard to tell someone else your deepest secrets. The truth about your gender, your desires, your struggling relationship. A well of shame has pooled up inside, brought on by years of trying to squeeze yourself into the narrow definitions of sexuality forced on you by society. You’re left feeling alienated and unsure if you will ever find the kind of true connection that you crave. You know deep inside that sexuality is meant to be wonderful…but something is holding you back. Fear of rejection. Fear of judgement. Fear of not being enough. Fear of not knowing what to do. Fear of being alone.

Growing up as a designated scapegoat with a narcissistic or abusive parent has long lasting negative impacts on someone's life. If you are struggling with your adult life now and had a parent with a personality disorder, substance abuse or other serious condition, you might have some of these symptoms: Second guessing yourself. Fear of attacks or criticism. Fear of relationships and being hurt. Recreating past painful relationships with people like your parents. Feelings of anxiety. Feeling easily defeated. Bottled up feelings that come out inappropriately. Ruminating about past hurts. Feeling no one hears you.

I have experience with issues from adoption/attachment, to sexual trauma, to depression/anxiety, and/or substance abuse. I am LGBTQ+ affirming. Clients who are ready to make a change in their lives or their way of thinking will find the most success working with me. Changing what you think or how you live is scary but if the way you've been isn't serving you then let's create a new picture of it the way you want it to be. Change might be scary but the only thing worse is staying unhappy in your life.

What type of Sterling Heights 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 Sterling Heights?
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.
