About me

I am a children and family therapist licensed in Michigan with experience working as a clinical case manager and therapist. I have worked with at risk youth for 15 years in different capacities with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, ODD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

I earned my certification in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion within the workplace. I was able to Chair a DEI workgroup to address DEI within the workplace.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and trauma focused. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Porsche has been a wonderful coach and therapist. I think that I have grown so much in our weekly sessions!! She’s such a wonderful listener, always makes time to check in with me, and knows my values. She keeps my accountable and I really appreciate that she sees me as a person of color navigating a challenging world. Her background in DEI has been super helpful in our sessions together. I’ve been with Porsche for over 6 mos now and am super happy I’ve found her.

She understands everything, she listens, she is empathetic. She has the solutions and gives you ways to work on your issues, resolve problems and better yourself. She is also very professional

Porsche is amazing — thoughtful, kind, straight to the point. I’m so thrilled I was paired with her.

Porsche has been wonderful to work with. She is knowledgeable and offers advice in a constructive and kind manner. Although I am in another country, she has been punctual to our sessions. Highly recommend her services to anyone

Porsche is amazing. As someone who felt quite averse to therapy, especially online therapy, Porsche gave me immense confidence in our first session. She's personable, understanding, an attentive listener. I feel she really hears what I'm saying and pushes my bounds of thinking in a respectful way. Not only that but as a WOC, Porsche doesn't give solutions that don't make sense to my culture (whilst still putting my mental health first). That's a hard virtue to find in a lot of therapists. Porsche is the reason I stay on BetterHelp.
