Everyone has experienced trauma: either "small-t trauma" such as grief/loss, verbal abuse/bullying, injuries/illnesses, or instability in the home or "large-T trauma" such as rape, assault, physical/sexual abuse, or debilitating injury/illness. As a result of trauma, some individuals experience disruptive memories and/or emotional distress from current situations. I assist clients in gaining insight on their situations as well as the development of specific skills and behaviors that will help to reduce emotional distress.

My approach to therapy is person-centered, strengths-based, and culturally sensitive, based primarily in cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing.
We all face problems in living. If you find yourself in a difficult situation that you could be handling better, I'm here to help you process your concerns and ways of addressing them. My goal is to help you manage your problems more effectively or even transcend them by eliciting new possibilities. I can also be helpful when it's not a question of what's going wrong but of what could be better. Most of us use only a portion of our potential and can live much more creatively. If you're feeling like you're just not as effective as you'd like to be, I can help you take advantage of missed opportunities and unused potential.

My years of experience in the mental health field have led me to work with people often drowned by worry, depression, and who feel hopeless about their ability to change. I work to help individuals develop skills aimed at decreasing the power of negative emotions and increasing the presence of other emotions that are often edged out, such as joy.

Motivational Interviewing Therapists
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a method of therapy that works to engage the motivation of clients to change their behavior. Clients are encouraged to explore and confront their ambivalence. Therapists attempt to influence their clients to consider making changes, rather than non-directively explore themselves. Kalamazoo Motivational Interviewing is frequently used in cases of problem drinking or mild addictions. Check these therapists for Motivational Interviewing in Kalamazoo.
