I am a genuine and compassionate counselor. I believe in an approach to care that is centered around you. I work with clients to create care plans that identify and meet their needs using evidenced based practices that help you work toward achieving your goals. I believe in an approach to care that is personalized and specific to the needs of each individual. I am committed to providing a safe, calming, judgement-free setting to help clients work toward overcoming symptoms of mental and behavioral health.
Life comes with its fair share of challenges. 1 in 5 of us live with a mental illness and many of us will experience moderate to severe anxiety or depression at least once in our lives.
I am an eclectic therapist but lean toward Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Strength Based Approaches to help develop awareness and coping strategies. I am also trained in EMDR. It is my belief that it is important to go beyond symptom relief. My aim is to help you improve your life satisfaction and relationships. Goal achievement is key to balance and wellness. Therapy can help.
I graduated from Wayne State University with a Masters of Education in Counseling. I specialize in in working with people who have or are experiencing: trauma, anxiety, stress, depression including remnants of emotional/physical abuse and neglect. My experience also includes working with family systems, relational issues including victims of domestic violence and individuals suffering with addiction challenges.
