I am a fully licensed Masters Level Social Worker in Michigan with over 8 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues/couples issues, teen issues, parenting problems, career challenges, LGBTQ+, OCD, and ADHD.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines solution-focused, strength based therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
