About Me

Hi, my name is Ula and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Michigan. I would describe myself as easy-going and down-to-earth with a good sense of humor. My mission is to help others experience being seen, heard, and understood. In doing this, I hope to empower individuals to find ways to grow to their full potential.

In order to provide therapy to others, I attended Siena Heights University to earn a master's degree in community counseling. For about seven years, I have been working with individuals and families with a variety of challenges such as family conflict, trauma, depression and anxiety, stress-related issues, communication challenges, self-esteem, and much more. I utilize an eclectic approach to counseling to meet the unique needs of individuals that support them to work on their mental health goals. These evidence based approaches include Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I truly look forward to helping you!

Written by B.E. on Oct 05, 2021 after therapy with Ula for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and coping with life changes

Ula has been such a great support for me over the last 6 months. I have been able to work through some difficult trauma that has surfaced, as well as trauma I have experienced from my job. She always listens to my concerns and challenges me to look at my reactions/behaviors to certain situations. She’s a wonderful therapist! The best one I’ve worked with!
