I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan with a double major in Psychology and Sociology and Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Wayne State University. I use a Person-Centered approach and pride myself on being down to earth and easy to talk to in what I refer to as my “judgment free zone”. I understand how hard it can be to open up to a stranger with very personal issues. I believe I have a natural ability to make my clients feel comfortable and safe while supporting them to have the courage to share their story with me. I have over 14 years of counseling experience in a wide variety of areas.I counsel adults with severe and persistent mental illness, bi-polar disorder, depression, anxiety, trauma, adjustment issues, grief and loss, women’s issues, self-esteem building and career counseling utilizing cognitive behavioral skills. I have specific training in DBT, CBT, CPT, MI, ACT, and EMDR. I look forward to helping you on your journey towards healing and positive change.
