I am a Master level psychologist (LLP) and have worked in the mental health field for nearly 10 years, with specialized experience and interest in chronic and/or severe mental illness. I earned my M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Western Michigan University and B.A. in Psychology from Central Michigan University. As a psychotherapist, I believe that every therapeutic journey is, and should be, as unique as the individual embarking on it. I consider myself to be an integrative therapist, employing a variety of methods and techniques, though much of my practice is rooted in the psychodynamic tradition. My goal, as your therapist, is to support you in your journey forward by meeting you exactly where you are each session, evaluating your needs and wants, and assisting you in developing and implementing a plan for achieving your goals. Guidance, motivation, exploration, insight, understanding, symptom management, healing; whatever it is you seek from therapy, I can help. I am passionate about the work I do and look forward to walking alongside you, on your therapeutic journey!
