About Me


My name is Elly and I am currently working at a licensed therapist in the state of Michigan! I received my Masters in Social Work from Grand Valley State University in 2017 and have been working with people from all different walks of life ever since!

A lot of my experience comes from working with individuals who are starting to take the steps towards addressing their substance use needs. I specialize in addictions related counseling and am qualified as a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC). On top of that, I have experience working with those struggling with low self-esteem, anxiety, feeling lost or hopeless, and many other things. I have worked as both an individual and group counselor with people in many different stages of their journey! During our meetings, we will work to identify any strategies, coping skills, or interventions to help you progress at your own pace.

My goal as a counselor is to walk alongside you providing a holistic, person-centered approach! We will create goals that you would like to work toward while utilizing and celebrating your individual strengths, skills, and progress!

Reaching out is often one of the hardest first steps... I look forward to assisting you through the next ones!
