YOUR JOURNEY IS YOURS TO TELL. It is important to me that your voice is heard when telling your truth. I am a firm believer that you are the expert in your own life. We will work together to create a plan based on your identified needs and goals. I am not here to tell you how to move forward, but rather to join you on your journey of re-inventing yourself as life alters your foundation. I desire to push you out of your comfort zone yet within your safe zone. Your desire to alter your current state of mind will be the driving force through treatment.

I have approximately 9 years of experience in working with individuals who have experienced a traumatic event(s) in their lives, anxiety, depression, sexual and physical abuse, sexually reactive behaviors, crisis response, self-harming behaviors, family relationships, substance abuse, body image, personality disorders, and other life-changing events or symptoms that may follow. I also have experience in family preservation work, advocating for the underserved and underrepresented populations, and supporting families through family therapy.

In working with these life challenges, I use a multitude of approaches determined by your need, CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing, play therapy, TF-CBT, FST (Trauma-Focused - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Therapy). I am a Limited License Professional Counselor through the state of Michigan, which followed my attendance for Spring Arbor University in Spring of 2019 with a Masters of Art in Counseling.

You show great strength in seeking support and I look forward to traveling through your journey side by side with you.
