I am a Licensed Professional Counselor from Michigan with over 8 years experience working in outpatient therapy and crisis. I have worked with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, lgbt issues, self-harm, and bariatric patients, and bipolar disorder. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating others with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I have a great sense of humor and I am open to hearing about your quirks. 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.
