“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us” – J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Each of us has a choice to make about the kind of life we want to live.  Therapy allows space to explore ourselves and examine our lives.  It can help us better understand what we want our lives to look like and how we can intentionally move in that direction.  It offers awareness of the patterns and beliefs which may be holding us back as well as those that can help us reach our goals.  I firmly believe by bringing awareness and intentionality to our lives, we connect with our true strength and have the opportunity to change our lives for the better. 

As a therapist, my goal is to create a supportive and safe space where you can foster self-awareness, explore those parts of yourself you’ve long rejected or ignored, and connect with your inner strength and sense of self.  Sometimes therapy involves exploring those areas of your life you would normally shy away from and I strive to be a partner as you take those brave steps toward self-discovery.  I cannot do the work for you, but I can travel alongside you on your journey.

I am a graduate of Western Michigan University with my Master’s degree in Social Work with a focus on holistic health and mindfulness.  I love working with adults to address life, work, and relationship stressors, interpersonal communication difficulties, anxiety, depression, and personal growth.  I have completed Level 1 Gottman Method Couples Therapy training and enjoy helping couples improve their communication, grow their bonds of friendship, and work as a team to tackle problem areas.  I will work with you to identify the strengths you already have while introducing practices and concepts from my experience and education to help you craft your own path toward growth.

I am currently accepting new adult clients and would love to meet with you to see if we would be a good fit to work together.  I accept cash payments, with a sliding scale available to those who are uninsured, underinsured, or who do not wish to use their insurance.  I can also accept clients with Blue Cross Complete Medicaid, Meridian Medicaid and McLaren Medicaid insurance.
