I received my degree from Western Michigan University and hold degrees in Sociolgy (BS), Business (MBA) and Counseling Psychology (MA). I have also completed extensive training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I am licensed as an LLP in the state of Michigan to diagnose and treat mental illness as well as perform psychological evaluations, and I receive supervision from a fully licensed psychologist.
I have practiced as a therapist for over 20 years in community mental health programs (Assertive Community Treatment and Case Management) In various counties in Michigan coordinating mental health services with CPS and APS, guardians, probation officers and the Probate Court. My experience has also included working with juvenile detention administrators and alternative education programs. I have primarily worked with individuals who are suicidal, self injure, have complicated trauma, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and who have persistent mental illness. In addition, I enjoy using my training in Applied Behavior Analysis to consult with parents, families, and community supports.
I found my calling as a helping professional and have been honored to work with many people in the pursuit of their dreams, their goals, to help them find relief from their pain, to heal, and to overcome adversity. I’ve learned that when people are stressed or traumatized, it is very common for their lives to change direction. Coping with these circumstances can be very difficult. My passion is to help people find their way to recovery and healing, and to offer them adaptive tools and resources for coping with their unique challenges. I believe that there is no single way for people to heal and recover. As a therapist, I work hard to tailor my services for each one of my clients.
