"I have been in therapy myself so I know how challenging the road can be. Having a therapist that you can count on and connect with is critical."

If you’re reading this, more than likely you are considering pursuing therapy. Maybe you want to feel whole and well and need help sorting things out. Maybe you aren’t currently struggling but want to see if you can develop your potential. Whatever the case, I applaud your honesty and courage. It takes a lot to get even this far. I believe every human being is special in many ways. It is my goal to help you develop a deeper relationship with yourself—to learn to love and value yourself. The relationship between therapist and client is at least half the solution. If I can help a client feel safe and comfortable we will make better progress. I believe in goal-focused therapy so that there is a beginning point and an endpoint. When we work together you are always in control of how deep and far you want to go. I get excited when I can help someone find their voice or feel like they matter. To have a client faithfully show up for appointments tells me he/she is committed to emotional recovery and wellness. I have been in therapy myself so I know how challenging the road can be. Having a therapist that you can count on and connect with is critical.

Finding a therapist with a lifetime of experience

I have been a school counselor for 20 plus years, working in elementary, middle and high schools. When it comes to ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), depression, anxiety disorders, struggles with confidence or difficult situations at school I have seen and constructed treatment plans for all ages. My specialties include addiction/recovery, LGBTQ population, mindfulness, and developing healthy coping strategies and social skills. In the course of my career I have been named Counselor of the Year by the WMCA. I received a $10,000 grant from Blue Cross of Michigan to develop a Depression Awareness Program at Sparta High School which included students and families. I also won national recognition for my dedication to the foreign exchange students when I was the counselor at Sparta High School. This is my fourth year in private practice. My focus is child counseling ages 5-17, but I love working with adults as well. If you come to therapy with an open mind and a commitment to work through some hard “stuff” you will be successful. I feel honored and humbled to be able to be such an intimate part of your journey and I take my work very seriously. That doesn’t mean we can’t have fun! I look forward to speaking with you soon.
