My understanding of counseling comes from a person-centered background. I believe that each client is unique, and that they bring their own unique experiences into therapy. My job is to work with you as you explore your current concerns. Together, we will look at the challenges you face, and I will help you to figure out how to best work through your current difficulties. My aim is to provide you with an empowering, judgement free counseling experience so that you may feel safe and comfortable during our time together. I use a variety of techniques to aid in my practice such as those found in dialectal behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and mindfulness. These techniques have been shown to be effective in treating depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, and other mental health issues.

I received my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Eastern Michigan University, and bachelors in Psychology with a minor in Communication at Oakland University. My internship was based in a domestic violence shelter where I learned the concepts of power and control and the effects trauma has on the brain. Through my experiences, I have worked with a diverse client population such as children, adolescents, couples, and adults. I am a limited licensed professional counselor (LLPC), and am currently in the process of becoming a certified advanced alcohol and drug counselor (CAADC-DP).
