About me

As a Licensed Professional Counselor in Michigan, I have worked for over 19 years with youth of all ages, adults and families in the school, outpatient and crisis shelter setting. The clients I have worked with have been struggling with issues of all types - self-esteem, anxiety, depression, family conflict, adjustment to changes in their lives, grief and LGBT issues. Many of my clients also a have a history of trauma in their lives.

I take a strengths-based and trauma informed approach in my work with clients. I also incorporate techniques from cognitive-behavioral, narrative, rational-emotive and humanistic therapy models. The most important techniques are the ones that will help you reach your goals which is why I do not use a "one size fits all" approach with my clients and tailor our interactions specifically to you.

I believe everyone deserves to be heard and understood. It would be an honor to hear your story and work with you!

Tammy listens and understands my struggles. She works with me to help me understand how to be in better control of my anxiety. She’s been a godsend as I got through a very difficult pregnancy after a loss.
