About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 18 years of experience. I earned my Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan in 1999 and have been providing outpatient counseling services since then. I specialize in helping people who have been affected by trauma and abuse, as well as those struggling with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, self-esteem issues and relationship issues.

I believe in meeting my clients where they are at in their struggles with a warm, welcoming approach. In treatment, I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. I am also DBT-informed and have special training in trauma, marriage counseling, and grief and loss. I am passionate about making connections with people and guiding them through their struggles.

I believe it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help and I hope that I can help you along your journey!
