About Me

Hello there! Let me take a second and welcome you to Better Help. By exploring this site you will find many different counselors, therapists, social workers and other professionals that are here to support you with whatever you may be going through. By taking this step, you are taking the initiative to help yourself conquer some things that might be bothering you, so you are able to feel more in control. Good job! It is imperative your connection with a professional who can support you with what you are experiencing is someone you are able to feel comfortable with. This allows for you to be completely open and honest with whom you are working with, and be able to explore your feelings without being uncomfortable or feeling judged. Could I be that person who might be able to help you? Let me give you some information about me, so you can determine if my approach and experience might be the right fit for you.

I am a Licensed Master's Social Worker in the state of Michigan. Although I have only been in the field of therapy for about 6 years, I was able to gain my experience from many different opportunities that shaped my practice into what it is today. I have experience working with populations including families, children/adolescents, adults, who suffer from significant mental health concerns. Some of these concerns have included Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, trauma, Schizophrenia, Bi-Polar Disorder, Personality Disorders, Autism, mood disorders and ADHD. I have also provided support to individuals who may not be directly struggling with some of these mental health concerns, but are affected by it from another person they have a relationship with.

While my style of therapy will evolve to fit the needs of the person I am working with, my initial approach remains the same. My style is warm, interactive and non-judgmental. I believe issues you may be facing does not define who you are as a person. Getting to know who you are is my first priority as this allows me to have a better understanding of how I can be helpful to you. Depending on your needs I may use therapy styles such as Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to help provide support to you.

If you feel I might be someone you could form that connection with as you continue this process, please let me know. I would love to begin getting to know you!
