I have over 10 years of experience working with children, adolescents, families, and young adults. Taking my cues from you and what is brought to the therapy sessions, I focus on finding an approach that works best in response to the struggles that you are facing.

My education includes a Bachelors degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice from the University of Detroit Mercy, and a Masters degree in Psychology specializing in children and adolescents from the University of Detroit Mercy. I have extensive experience working with those suffering from depression, self harmful behavior, anxiety, educational issues, psychosis, adjustment concerns, stress, and behavioral issues. I have specialized training in parenting and trauma.

Deciding to seek therapy is a first step to a better tomorrow. I would be honored to take that journey with you.
