Genuineness, authenticity, compassion, and uniqueness are characteristics I possess as a counselor. I aim to empower and inspire my clients with genuine respect and show them they are not alone in their journey to restoration. Ensuring the client’s needs are validated and understood, active listening and empathetic understanding is the approach I take to meet the needs and wants of the client to holistic healing.
I am an honors graduate from Central Michigan University with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have experience in counseling children, teenagers, adults, and couples. My specialties include anxiety, depression, anger management, defiance issues, marital conflict, postpartum depression, ADHD, and trauma-related disorders.
Life comes with many challenges, but they don’t have to be challenging alone. I am committed to providing a space of tranquility and peace to those I serve. I practice from an eclectic approach of evidence-based practices to fit the client’s need, whether it be Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, to the integration of Christian concepts, if necessary. My approach to therapy is built upon the principle of respect and compassion through a caring therapeutic relationship. Your mental health and overall wellness are essential, so believing that you have the potential to step over the threshold into your new beginnings is what I strive for in each session.
