Previous to my current position as Professor of Social Work at Saginaw Valley State University, I worked as a family preservationist, a child/ adolescent therapist, and a substance abuse counselor.
My work as a therapist is finding the treasure that I know is inside of you. I realize that your “gem” is often there, but covered up by years of bad habits, unfortunate events, or mental health issues beyond your control. I believe that you have your own answers to your problems and I am here to help you clarify and find those answers. I take a person-centered approach. I may challenge you, but do so with compassion and understanding that life is a journey with bumps in the road for all of us.

I have at-risk teen groups.
I am a very experienced tele-health provider. I specialize in treating all ages with depression and anxiety, as well as adults, children and families with difficulties in their relationships, difficulties with parenting and problems with school. I use a relaxed personal approach to find the root causes of problems and resolve them at a pace that is comfortable for you. You will not have to add one more place to be to your busy schedule. Telemedicine is a covered benefit for many insurances. Even play therapy can be done online. If you are having unwanted outcomes, I can help you turn that around with Power Counseling.

I also enjoy working with late teen and young adult clients who are going through so many life transitions.
Most of us know that even the healthiest of us need at some point in our lives an outside perspective or guidance into our inner selves to resolve many issues that we have not been able to do on our own. Therapy can take many forms from "personal growth work " (i.e. becoming a better person or reaching personal goals not yet achieved) or in dealing with life crises, wrong choices in the past effecting today, life transitions or mood problems such as depression, grief, anxiety etc. am also helping people deal with covid and all of it's implications.

At this time, you may be struggling with problems in relationships, family, work, or conflicts within yourself. Being so close to the problem, it can be difficult to find the solutions. I believe therapy is an extremely effective process for finding these solutions and creating a fulfilling and satisfying life for yourself. As your therapist, I can guide you to identify patterns of behavior, feelings, and attitudes that are self-defeating or standing in your way. I can help you access your inner wisdom, strengths, and resources that will facilitate the changes you seek.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Ypsilanti and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
