There is something beautiful and inspiring about participating in another person’s healing journey and growth. I enjoy helping people find new ways of coping with adversity, developing ways to manage intense emotions, build healthier, stronger relationships and participate in activities that make their lives enjoyable and meaningful. Since 2003, I have worked in a variety of clinical treatment settings with adolescents and adults. I have Master’s degrees in Social Work with an emphasis on mental health, and Counseling with an emphasis on career counseling. I am a Certified Advanced Drug and Alcohol Counselor and licensed in the state of Michigan. I have trained extensively and on an ongoing basis in modalities of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Prolonged Exposure, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Somatic Experiencing.
I take an integrative approach to wellness, recognizing that many strategies people use to cope with traumatic situations and overwhelming feelings developed for understandable reasons. When those coping strategies are no longer useful or in fact start to cause other problems, we all have the capacity to learn new ways of coping. I look forward to discussing how we can collaborate to help you reach your goals.
