About

I am Humanistic/Spiritual in orientation, client centered. I graduated in 1993 with my Master's Degree in Clinical and Humanistic Psychology from The Michigan School of Psychology in Birmingham Michigan. My thesis was entitled "What is the Experience of Moving Through Self-Doubt. It was recommended for publication. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan and graduated in 1983. I was cited for exceptional accomplishment in Psychology. I am supervised by Ms. Christine Haemmerle, PhD, on a monthly basis as required by the state of Michigan.
My specialties are: Depression, Anxiety/Panic, Bi-Polar Disorder, Personality Disorders, Schizophrenia, Asbergers, ADD/ADHD, Substance Abuse issues, Gay/Lesbian issues, and PTSD. I am certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), for PTSD resolution. I received my Certification in 1995.
I have never had my license suspended nor revoked. I attend workshops at least 2-3 times a year, read current research that is available, and consult with peers to further my education in this field. I am confident and enjoy my work as a therapist/life coach.
