About me

I am a family, marriage and individual psychotherapist licensed in Michigan with 25 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, suicidal ideation, relationship issues, and anxiety. In addition, I have expertise in treating veterans and civilians who suffer from both non-combat and combat post traumatic stress disorder, including military sexual trauma.

My approach to psychotherapy is very kind, caring, and direct. I believe in treating everyone equally with respect and honesty. I understand that facing life's challenges can be very difficult and I'm hear to help. I look forward to working with you.

Sean is a great therapist. He listens without judgement and creates a positive environment where it’s safe to discuss any issues and explore solutions.

Sean is a difference maker. He has a great demeanor, perspective and is very easy to talk to. He helped me unpack some things I’ve struggled to make sense of and provided tools necessary to move forward. A difficult but worthwhile journey I will not forget. I’ve recommended him to several people in my orbit who could benefit from his insight.

Written on Nov 24, 2022 after therapy with Sean for 2 months on issues concerning family conflicts

Sean has really helped me unpack and sort out some of the PTSD and trauma I've had to endure. He's intentional about how he approaches problems and I appreciate that. As a female, I found him easy to talk to and I always felt comfortable opening up to him. I definitely recommend him, especially if you need someone to be straightforward with you.
