My passion is helping people discover the goodness, strength, and wisdom that is already within them, and them helping them to grow those strengths so that eventually they can “be their own therapist.” I received my BS in Psychology from Central Michigan University and my MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Western Michigan University. I have also had special training in various mindfulness-based interventions, such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Mindful Self-Compassion, and DBT, among others. I have experience working with adults of all ages seeking help with depression, anxiety, compulsive or emotional eating, self-esteem issues, grief, anger management, substance use, trauma, life transitions, and assertiveness skills. My goal is to offer a warm, empathetic, non-judgmental space where we can collaboratively explore your needs and goals. We will walk this journey together! Together, we will develop a toolbox of skills for making sense of your life, developing wisdom and compassion, and “growing the good,” based in positive psychology, mindfulness, compassion-oriented approaches, and CBT. I want to help you achieve the happiness you deserve, to stop getting down yourself, and to take back YOU!
