I am a school social worker in Michigan and have experience working in the school setting with kids for the past several years. Although, I have spent close to a decade working in the community mental health agencies working with the SPMI (Severe and persistent mental illness) working with children, adults and couples. I have experience working with children and parents focusing on PMTO (parent management training - Oregon model) and ways to encourage parents to be positive role models building on respect and safety. I have experience working with trauma, addiction personality and mood disorders. I have training in DBT, CBT, MI and am a certified EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapist. I provide support and validation in my therapy style. The therapeutic relationship is one of the strongest factors to change and growth, the connection is needed. I encourage others to find insight through reflection, discussion and practice. I meet you where you are at and use the time to focus on the goals and objectives that are needed for you to have a fulfilling life and a sense of wellness and a positive mental health.
I look forward to getting an opportunity to meet you and work with along side you!
