I am a clinical licensed therapist in Michigan with over 10 years of experience working with children, teens, families and individuals who have experienced trauma including sexual, physical, spiritual and emotional abuse.
My expertise is in childhood trauma and its impacts on the brains and bodies of human beings as grow. Even as adults, we still hold an image of an inner child deep inside. If we experienced a less than ideal childhood, it can manifest in many ways such as struggles in forming relationships (with our own children, an intimate partner or close friend), trust, safety, anxiety, depression, addiction, self harm and suicidal thoughts.
I use many different types of therapeutic approaches such as Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Rapid Desensitization (EMDR), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Expressive Arts in order to assist you on your healing process. Your experiences are valuable and unique, and your treatment plan should be as well in order to best meet your needs.
Your decision to overcome whatever adversity you have been faced with is courageous. It will not always be easy, but I am honored to walk with you on this important journey.
