About me

I am a licensed Master’s Clinical Social Worker in Michigan and Nevada with over 20 years of experience working in the field of medicine and social work.
I am a registered yoga teacher so I practice yoga and meditation for personal wellness.
I have worked with clients with a wide range of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, mood and thought disturbances.
I have helped many people who have experienced legal, family, and financial problems.
My therapeutic style is person centered and relationship based.
I believe in treating people with kindness and empathy.
My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing. I believe people have choices; you can choose to take a different path or not. My goal is not to judge you for who you are or who you want to become.
I am a person centered therapist so what that means to you is I allow you to direct the treatment as you deem fit and necessary. I will not force you to do something you don't want to do or talk about. I respect a person's boundaries. I also practice mindfulness so what this to you is I don't always have the answers. I believe thoughts can come and go; they only have meaning unless we give them meaning.
I am educated in addiction medicine.
I have done research on weight issues and mental health.
I have worked with people with substance abuse issues.
I enjoy treating both children, adults and families.
I enjoy happiness in my sessions and I also enjoy music. However if you are struggling, I will be there to support you and provide you a empathetic bedside manner.
My goal is to make you feel better at the end of the session than when you came into it. However, at times that requires your participation and allowing yourself to feel enjoyment through positive communication. My goal is to listen and reflect. I like to keep things simple.
I look forward to our journey! Are you ready to start it?
