I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Michigan and Texas. Additionally, I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Florida.

I believe that every individual has the necessary tools to enhance their lives and it is my responsibility as a therapist to help my clients learn how to use their tools effectively. I believe that establishing a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients is essential and primary. I believe having a good connection helps to facilitate effective counseling and provides the best outcomes. In therapy, I am supportive, empathetic, compassionate and am present in times of both struggle and success. I believe that therapy must be individualized to meet your needs and strive meet each individual where they are in their therapeutic journey and actively listen and respect where they would like to see themselves in the future as part of the therapeutic process. Collaboration with individuals on their treatment goals is a fundamental priority and I encourage open communication regarding what therapeutic techniques and approaches work best for the person with an emphasis on individual strengths to ensure the best therapeutic experience. My counseling style is individualized strength-based, rooted in cognitive-behavioral and solution focused methodologies. Identifying one's strengths and effective coping skills that can be used to help work through identified treatment issues is an essential component of my therapeutic approach. I believe you are the expert and it is my responsibility to help you realize your full capacity to better navigate life's journey. I truly value and approach each individual therapeutic relationship fully and empathize with the different spectrum of emotions that a client may experience during the course of treatment. I firmly believe each individual has the ability and strength to overcome their struggles, but that sometimes having additional support in the form of therapy can assist one to better identify and recognize the skills, strategies and strengths they already possess. It takes courage in making the first step to creating a healthier and happier you and I would be truly honored to assist you in your journey! I look forward to speaking with you soon!

10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am an addiction specialist based in Michigan. I have been providing intensive group therapy (IOP) for over 10 years to all ages of people who need help learning different habits that do not destroy their lives. In Michigan I have the highest certification and qualifications for this type of counseling called Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor or CAADC. I enjoy getting to know the whole person, their challenges, where they have come from and where they would like to go. Addiction is a disease that takes over your life and starts making all of your decisions. I can help you begin to make the decisions again. Listening and truly hearing what you say is my business. Together we can brainstorm about what you have already tried and other ways we can fight your habits. When I am not counseling, I enjoy northern Michigan, kayaking with mutts, biking with motors and without and exploring our beautiful world.

Hello. I have been working with people as a Licensed Professional Counselor and as an Occupational Therapist for the past 26 years. This means that I not only believe in the healing properties that can be found with sharing thoughts and feelings in a supportive, non-judgmental relationship, but I also strongly believe in the importance of integrating purposeful activity into our work together. I like to foster an environment in which we can work together as a team. YOU are the expert in your life, and therapy can help you to make the best decisions to get your life back on track. To this end, I will often give people assignments to complete between sessions. It might be something to read, an exercise designed to get you thinking, or a task to get you to examine your thoughts or feelings. It all depends on what goals you have chosen to work on during our time together. Some specific areas I can help you with are feelings of depression and anxiety, managing stress, suicidal thoughts, substance abuse concerns, difficulty with your career or relationships, chronic heath issues, caregiver burnout or stress, issues related to a history of abuse, mood swings, low self esteem and grief. I understand how very difficult it can be to reach out for help and am so glad that you have made this positive step for yourself. I would very much like the opportunity to make this journey with you.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Williamston?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Williamston therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Williamston counselor?

Before seeing your Williamston therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Williamston.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Williamston licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Williamston counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Williamston, Michigan can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
