Seeking therapy may be a difficult step when ready for change. My role in a therapeutic relationship is to help clients process the variety of barriers with taking action. My techniques consist of developing an empathic understanding, using solution-focused thinking to help excel in problem solving, and reframing our thinking patterns.

My experience includes working with adults, teenagers and children battling depression and thoughts of suicide, trauma from abusive relationships, substance abuse and addiction, grief/loss, and anxiety. I have worked in partial hospital settings, outpatient settings, and Intensive Outpatient Programs.

What I value most is building strong relationships with my clients by creating an atmosphere of freedom of expression without judgment. It is important that my clients have trust to verbalize all thoughts and feelings that are pertinent to their needs. Change is something that is possible for everyone.

I earned my Master's Degree in Community Counseling from Wayne State University. Associations include being a member of the Michigan Mental Health Counselors Association and credited as a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC).
