- Substance Abuse/Addiction
We all reach times in our lives where we feel overwhelmed, when it feels the dust just will not settle, and we feel stuck. Being able to put a voice to your struggles and finding a neutral space for that voice to land is key; I strive to be that person for everyone that steps foot in my office. My goal as a therapist is to help you realize your potential for positive change in a safe and supportive environment.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Michigan State University, and then went on to obtain my Master of Arts Degree in Counseling, with specialization in Couple and Family Therapy, from Oakland University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor.
I come from a client-centered, insight-oriented approach, incorporating skills from family systems, mindfulness, CBT, and narrative techniques aimed at meeting the client in their present situation. I have a passion for helping couples and individuals, in achieving balance and obtaining life’s goals, within themselves and in their relationships. Additionally, I have a background in aiding LGBTQIPA individuals work through the unique challenges they face, in an accepting and comfortable environment. I am experienced in the areas of anxiety, depression, addiction/substance use, grief/loss, major adjustments and life changes, self-worth, as well as stress related to school, work, and relationships.
