Welcome! I am eager to assist you. I hold a Master's Degree in Social Work with a concentration in Mental Illness and Chemical Dependency from Eastern Michigan University. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Michigan. In addition, I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers, and practice under the ethics and principles of this organization. My work settings have included my own private practice for the last six years working with multiple populations- in addition to 10 years at Community Mental Health, as well as providing Behavioral Health Services to children in grades 6th through 12th in a school setting. I have been in practice since 2007. I additionally have experience working with children on the Autism Spectrum. I bring extensive experience and education in the Principles of Behavior, and consider myself to be informed and use some of these principles in my practice.
I often work with individuals, children and families who are experiencing significant life changes such as adjustment to developmental stages or a major life transition. I also work with clients who are struggling with more chronic issues such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. In addition, I have experience working with both adults and children who are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. In 2011 I became fully trained by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to provide Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to children and adolescents who have experienced trauma.

Trudi has been great, she listens to my concerns and issues and talks with me to figure out how to handle issues and plans to make me move forward towards making my life better. I can't get rid of the people that cause some of my issues, I'm learning how to communicate and handle them in a positive and productive manner. I'm learning it's okay to take care of myself.
Calming spirit and a great listening. I wanted to extend my time with Trudi to the maximum allowed. Bless her dearly.
Trudi is very personable and understanding, and I feel very fortunate to have gotten her as a counselor. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with her in the future!
When I started Better Help I was in a really bad place. My anxiety was controlling my life and my wife had asked for a separation. I wasnt sure what to expect since I've never done counseling before, but Trudi was very easy to talk to and understood and was very insightful about my problems. I know at times I made things hard as I was having trouble following the advice I was being given, but she helped me learn how to control my anxiety and cope with things better. I'm in a much better place with my life now and my wife and I are back together and I know that without the help of counseling and my doctor putting me on anxiety medication things wouldve continued to get worse. It was not easy to ask for help, but I'm glad I did and thankful for Trudi's help.
Very easy to open up to. She is genuinely concerned for me
i really appreciate all your kind words and understanding
She has been very helpful and has been very good for me. She is working with me on many things and she has been doing a good job at keeping me busy and working on things.
Trudi has been tremendous at taking the time to explain certainly phenomena and processes. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
If your lucky enough to get Trudi you've got yourself an amazing therapist. She listens and offers helpful advice and her approach to trauma is very patient and she really goes at whatever pace you are comfortable with. I highly highly recommend Trudi.
It’s been awesome counselors mg
This was my first time seeking a professional opinion and so I was definitely skeptical. However, it’s been great working with Trudi. She makes sure you are comfortable and that things aren’t too overwhelming. She’s very thorough and positive in her explanations and thoughts. I thought this app might make it difficult to reach her, but Trudi is really great at responding quickly as well as checking in with you throughout the week. Overall, I’m happy to have been paired with Trudi. She’s been a great and continuous help.
In the few weeks I've been working with Trudi, I feel like I've been able to make such progress and further able to understand where my emotions stem from. She responds quickly to messages and keeps you engaged throughout the session. I would recommend her over and over!
In the short amount of time I have been assigned with Trudi, she has helped me solve so many problems. I am thankful that she listens to understand my situations. She is amazing!
Betterhelp is a great platform and I am enjoying my therapist Trudi. I like having a professional to share my thoughts and problems with so I can get objective thoughts and ideas to help me get through this tough time. I highly recommend!
She is very involved in my care and what’s going on in my life! Always responds to my journal entries which tells me she cares. I’ve told her stuff I haven’t told anyone! Excellent!!
Very helpful, understanding, and amazing to talk to!
