I am a social worker licensed in the State of Michigan. I have been working in the community mental health field for six years. My everyday job is working with individuals with severe mental illness and individuals with immediate mental health crises. Clients I work with often have a range of concerns such as; anxiety, depression, adjusting to a new culture, Bipolar Disorder, substance abuse, family-related concerns, and individuals with self-harming behaviors or suicidal ideations.
My counseling style is down-to-earth and interactive. I believe that individuals are experts in their own lives and enjoy helping individuals obtain these skills. I believe in treating all individuals with respect and compassion. I look at every interaction as an opportunity to learn from one another. My practice is a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, solution-focused, and teaching healthy coping skills (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.) When working together, I empower individuals to take the lead in their treatment by setting up therapeutic goals that are time-bound, achievable, and measurable.
It takes courage to make a change and leap out of your comfort zone. It takes strength and resilience to implement these changes.
I look forward to helping you make that leap and empowering you to be the happiest and healthiest version of yourself!

Jade is attentive and caring and doesn’t sit back and listen to me complain. She is there to converse with me and help me work through my thoughts and feelings. The best therapist I’ve ever had! She doesn’t make me feel like I’m alone in this to find the answer, she guides me to figure out why I feel some type of way or if there’s a reason why I feel that way and doesn’t understand that yet
