I believe that focusing on your felt-sense and physical experience of life provides a more comprehensive healing approach. Using awareness of the sensation cues our bodies send us can allow us the presence of mind to sit with and move through our current issues and past traumas with our own internal wisdom and gentleness. Approaching yourself with curiosity, sensing, and awareness will allow release, recognition, and a sense of safety moving forward. I approach each session from a body-based perspective, bringing your awareness to what your body remembers alongside the narrative addressed within talk therapy.

You are unique in all the world! There is no one just like you with your story or life. Your family, pets, friends, community--where you came from--what you have overcome and endured-all these make you the unique person you are. At some time you may wish to turn the page on your story. My therapy involves walking with you while you decide where you want to go from here--who the person is that you want to be--how you want your life and story to change. I will listen and challenge, support and invite you to learn new skills and growth.

If you've ever wished you could change your life, the way you behave, or your use of alcohol or drugs, it might be time to talk with someone making the change. I am a counselor with over 20 years experience helping people successfully deal with such problems. It is surprising how powerful we are when we accept help, understand our behaviors and learning new coping skills. Making the time for yourself is the first step.

I have been working in the mental health field for over 20 years and I have worked in a variety of settings including psychiatric hospitals, community mental health, employee assistance, and now private practice. What I love most about what I do is learning and understanding my clients' individual histories and current life situations. Therapy is not a "one size fits all" treatment plan, everyone's story is unique and their story has to be heard. My clients and I work as a team to figure out what the goals of therapy are and to try to reach those goals as best as we can. My job is to guide, not lead, a client on their journey.

We all experience stress, anxiety, frustration and other forms of emotional distress at one point or another in our lives. This distress may be caused by relationships, financial strain, loss, setbacks, or other life stressors that have us feeling stuck or overwhelmed. There are times when we are able to bounce back on our own. Then there are times when we could benefit from a little help. Seeking counseling services is not a sign of weakness, but an investment in your mental wellbeing.

Life is a roller coaster isn't it? You must be experiencing a down time to be here looking for a therapist. How do we hang on in the tough times when we feel tired and overwhelmed? I had to learn myself how to manage anxiety, depression, panic attacks, childhood sexual abuse, trauma, and grief. I now consider it a privilege to walk alongside others who are looking to deal with their own concerns. I use traditional behavior therapy models like CBT, DBT, solution-focused and trauma-informed therapy. I also use humor as one of my own coping mechanisms and incorporate it into my counseling strategy. Let's talk and see if I can help.

My compassion for all beings began long ago and has been the cornerstone of my personal and professional life. It is truly the only reason I practice counseling. I am profoundly aware of the vast amounts of suffering we all experience throughout our lives. Experiencing and releasing this pain is the goal. I believe in the emergence of self knowledge, positive energy and right action as fear and resistance are diminished. I prefer not to label conditions and symptoms ,but strive to fully understand and appreciate the individual sitting before me. * The additional stress of our times cannot be ignored or minimized*

With mindfulness- and compassion-based therapy, I support clients through grief & loss, relationship issues, healing from trauma, and searching for meaning & purpose. So many of the issues that bring people to therapy are natural responses to the challenges we face as human beings. Through the process of therapy, we bring curiosity and compassion to our inner experience; and in the safety of a non-judgmental space, we explore options for understanding and growth.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Kalamazoo Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Kalamazoo.
