About me

Great work! You have done it. You are looking to heal, and are reaching out for support. Taking the first step to find a good match is a huge undertaking. As people we all have struggles from trauma to substance use, relational issues, life transitions, emotional issues and stress. I strive to provide a safe and comfortable space for healing. I believe the therapeutic relationship is sacred, trust is to be earned not given and I will work hard to earn your trust. My motto is love, peace, happiness and growth. Everyone deserves these key components of life. Every day is an opportunity to achieve, learn and heal.

My role as a therapist is to serve as a guide to assist in your healing journey. You are the narrator of your life, and I would be honored to support you on your journey. I have been a practicing therapist since 2011. I believe in healing the mind, body and spirit through multiple approaches. I can assist in finding the right one for you. I am trained in EMDR and use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy informed skills, Motivational Interviewing, and Relapse Prevention Therapy. I am a fully licensed social worker in the State of Michigan as well as a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Addictions Drug Counselor and an Auricular Detox Specialist. Contact me for support.
