I am a licensed professional counselor working in MI. I have been in the field for just under 10 years and I graduated with my Masters in Counseling from Oakland University in 2013.
My experience ranges from pregnant mom and young babies/toddlers to older adults and adolescents. I have experience working in a juvenile facility, experience with persons previously incarcerated, experienced past trauma, struggle with depression and anxiety and personality disorders, among other things.
My specific credentials include LPC, CAADC (drug and alcohol) and IMH-E. I am currently a programs supervisor at a Community Mental Health agency, a Trauma Focused CBT supervisor/practitioner as well as an independent LLPC supervisor.
Coming to therapy is a big step and is not often easy. My therapy style consists of several modalities, but it is mainly whatever you need it to be. I'm a big proponent of 'meeting you where you are' in your therapy journey. Everyone has a story and all behavior has meaning-I'm here to help you make sense of both.
I look forward to working with you!
