These issues vary widely, but generally include depression, anxiety, stress, marriage /relationship problems and more.
I believe all people generally have the resources to help themselves, yet sometimes simply need a safe, trustworthy professional to help work through issues, identify goals, make healthy decisions and take steps necessary to live life more fully. I use an integrative approach that draws largely from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), solutions-focused and cognitive behavioral theories. I recognize and respect the fact that individuals have widely varying perspectives and needs. Lastly, I am fully virtual and offer either phone or video sessions.

I'm well-acquainted with the pressure life can put on you, your marriage , and your family.
I love helping adolescents and their families! Sounds strange I know, but it's true. I provide a listening ear and create a non-judgmental space for youth ages 11-24 to talk about life, love, friendship, and the challenges associated with transitioning into adulthood. I also work with struggling adults, couples and stressed families, and help individuals deal with things like depression and anxiety. Life puts lots of pressure on individuals, marriages, parents, and families, and I'd love to help you find ways to cope with the pressure and go from surviving to thriving!

I was trained as a Marriage , Couple, and Family Therapist, and have specialized in Systems Theory.
My personal motto is "No mud. No lotus." To me, this means, without suffering there cannot be beauty. My entire life I have been fascinated with resilience- the ability to overcome. What makes people stronger when they they have faced so much adversity? I started my career focused on how to help people become more resilient, and along the way I have learned so much, not just about overcoming obstacles, but also about building up strengths.

If your relationship feels stuck, I will help you identify & change harmful patterns before you feel hopeless. We'll build on your strengths and history. Afraid of replicating your parents' marriage ? We'll explore your fears, improve communication, & work toward more effective solutions. Plan to move in together? Get married? Change jobs? Have a baby? I can help you prepare now for the typical (& your unique) stressors that come with those changes instead of feeling blindsided by them & trying to pick up the broken pieces later. Communication, intimacy, & sexual satisfaction can all be strengthened with some intention & time.

If your marriage has too much conflict, too little togetherness, or it just feels like you've gone in different directions, I can help you get back on the track you want to be on. Some times the patterns that are developed in marriage need a little jolt in order to shift onto a better path. Working on these issues with practical tools in the context of your life in Christ gives you resources that are unavailable simply working on these things yourselves. If you are an individual struggling with anxiety or depression or relational problems, I can also help you with a plan and tools to handle life more effectively.

As a License Marriage and Family Therapist, I provide a safe, confidential, and trustworthy space for you and your loved ones to share your concerns.
Life stages and transitions bring with them many joys, challenges and uncertainties.

Are you familiar with feelings of despair, hopelessness, anxiety, confusion and self-doubt among others? Do your children or adolescents struggle in this way? Are you experiencing a difficult time moving forward? My objective in therapy is to validate your experience as an individual, couple or family. Through practical learnings and education, I will work alongside you to provide hope and help toward healing.

Bad things have happened to you and you wonder if life will ever get better. You desperately want happiness, but it feels out of reach. You can’t stop reliving the past and you feel irritable and overwhelmed by worries. Your relationships have suffered because others just don’t get it. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but you feel like your efforts are never good enough. You wish you could just "get over it", you're frustrated that you can't and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. More than anything you want to feel connected to others and start experiencing a joyful life!

Hi! I’m glad you’re here. Life can be hard and confusing and scary. You may be feeling overwhelmed or you’re struggling with low self-worth and self-doubt. Maybe you’re having difficulty in your relationships with friends, family or partner(s). Perhaps you’re struggling to identify and express your emotions. Add to that, despite all of the positives associated with social media, many people are feeling more isolated and alone than ever. I specialize in treating people struggling with depression, anxiety and trauma as well as life transitions such as navigating college, careers and relationships.

Relationships can be hard! You can put your heart and soul into trying to fix problems and still feel stuck. Maybe you're in an exhausting cycle of never-ending challenges and feeling discouraged because nothing ever changes, or trapped and wondering, "What's the point anyway?" Let's face it, often friends and family mean well, but sometimes they're part of the problem! If you're: feeling misunderstood, worried a lot, easily angered, having trouble sleeping or eating or finding the energy to get through the day, or lacking excitement about doing things that you used to love, then it may be time to get professional help!

What type of Traverse City 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 Traverse City?
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.
