THRIVE.  In this life, you were not meant for the ordinary.  You were not meant to simply survive each day...you were meant to thrive.  As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I am committed to walking beside you as you focus on what is most important to you.  My goal is to help you discover how to live life to the fullest!  I have over twenty years of experience providing services to children, adolescents, and families across a wide range of challenges including anxiety, depression, conflict management, low self-image, divorce, and behavioral issues.
I work from a client-centered perspective.  I believe that relationship is very significant to the counseling process and I work hard to make my clients feel cared for and valued.  I utilize a unique focus for each client that I encounter because each person is an individual with unique needs.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Play Therapy, and Art Therapy are a few of the many approaches that I have utilized when meeting the needs of those I serve.
I completed my graduate studies in counseling from Oakland University in Rochester Hills, MI.  In addition to this degree, I have earned a master's degree in Educational Ministry from Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, MI. As part of my graduate work, I had the opportunity to counsel women challenged by post-partum depression through the Beaumont Hospital system in the Detroit area.  I am also an active member of the Association for Play Therapy. I have received extensive training in telehealth and therapy for anxiety in children through certification courses offered by PESI.
Within a supportive therapeutic environment, I hope that I will help you to discover a renewed perspective on life and greater joy.  Prepare the way for something new!
