“Humor is the soul’s last line of defense, and as long as we’re laughing, we’re alive.” -Fredrik Backman, Anxious People
I believe that counseling is meant to provide an opportunity for self-growth, identifying personal strengths, and facing the challenges of life. Through cultivating an inclusive and safe space, I invite people to discuss the stories of their lives, gain self-awareness, and create positive change. I am happy to work with people who strive for self-fulfillment, freedom, and connection. Whether you are dealing with a transition, challenge, or stressful life event, I am prepared to support you in exploring meaning and developing goals for positive, effective change.
As a counselor, I encourage you to be authentic, providing a non-judgmental space in which you can explore yourself and your experiences. I commonly utilize humor, empathy and warmth, developing an understanding of each individuals perspectives, worldview, and beliefs. With an eclectic approach, I tailor my work with each person uniquely to their needs, interests, and goals.
I completed my Master’s degree in Counseling Education, specializing in marriage, couple and family therapy from Western Michigan University. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Saginaw Valley State University. I have completed Gottman Level 1 and Level 2 training in couple’s therapy, as well as training in Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy.
