As a transgender woman myself, I understand the unique challenges that face not only trans* clients, but of individuals from all walks of life who are struggling.
It is my personal and professional belief that everyone is capable of discovering their most authentic and successful self, but may occasionally need assistance in their journey to personal enrichment. I have been lucky enough to find those people in my own life, and I consider it an honor to serve that purpose for my clients in a warm, welcoming, yet professional fashion. I respect the individual needs of varying cultural backgrounds, and enjoy finding common ground with varying clientele.

I have doctoral level studies in sexuality, am a certified transgender therapist, and am currently working on a certification in modern treatment methods to reduce trauma and anxiety.
I specialize in working with trauma, stress, anxiety, intimacy issues, women’s sexuality, sexual compulsions and the LGBTQ community. What clients say is most important in their healing process is my holistic and mindful approach to their emotional issues. Neuroscience is now proving that focusing on thoughts and emotions is not enough to bring change when our brains are “jumbled” and we just can’t think our way out of problems. Without awareness of both our total inner and outer worlds we can't get better. So I bring body awareness, sometimes called somatic therapy, into our collaborative work together. This makes a difference!

I am currently doing teletherapy with all of my clients. Because of that, I can take clients from anywhere in Michigan. I enjoy working with clients who are up for a little work. I have a strong belief in the idea that therapy isn't something that is done to us, rather something we must take an active role in to see any true progress. I view therapy as another way to add more tools to our toolbox in an effort to better ourselves. My goal isn't to have a client for life; it is to teach the skills needed for my client to be their best selves, even after we have finished working together.

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.

I believe that clients have within themselves an amazing ability to self-heal, and the role of the counselor is to find and tap into that ability. I also believe it is important to learn about each client's world and to develop a relationship where clients can feel understood and supported while learning about themselves. This creates the space for exploring the choices they have and any changes they may want to make toward more personal fulfillment. Therapy for children may involve consultation with parents who need support meeting their child's challenges. Play therapy is used with children.

Many of my clients come to me with anxiety disorders or closely related OCD or trauma disorders. They find their worlds shrinking as a result of their suffering and aren't sure how to halt the cycle. Likewise, I also see clients troubled by substance use, psychotic disorders, and everyday relationship issues like lack of connection, and they too are dealing with pain that gets in the way of what's important in their lives. No matter the problem, they often feel trapped or stuck and want to find a way through the barriers keeping them from meaning and purpose in their lives.
