Great to meet you!
I have experience working with client's on depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, LGB populations, trauma and women's issues. My professional background includes serving as an Executive Director, a medical social worker and a mental health therapist. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree from Western Michigan University. I am a graduate of Eastern Michigan University with a Master's Degree in Social Work.
A bit about my approach to therapy
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is key in helping clients achieve their goals.
I believe in providing clients with a safe and nonjudgmental environment to explore feelings and address challenges in life. I recognize the importance of working collaboratively to help you achieve your goals. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and the practice of mindfulness.
What you can expect from our first session
It is important for me to create a warm, friendly and accepting environment for clients. I will work with you in examining goals that you would like to achieve. It is my intention to create a working relationship that helps you to feel supported and listened to. I will work to create an environment that supports emotional well being and positive self care.
