About

Welcome! I am a licensed professional counselor in Michigan, specializing in the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, and more. In-person sessions are available in East Lansing, and online therapy is available for all residents of Michigan.

With over 18 years of experience, I specialize in pinpointing the root cause of challenges and equipping you with coping skills to make any situation less overwhelming. Therapy with me is a warm, non-judgmental space where you can recoup from mental health challenges, build self-esteem, move past anxiety, and create healthy habits so you can live a more meaningful life.

Your therapy sessions will focus on solutions as you work toward reaching your potential. It’s important that we work together to identify the challenges you face while also looking at how your own perceptions and behaviors might be part of a larger picture contributing to your troubles. We will develop a personalized plan tailored to you, ensuring that you feel heard and that your needs are fully addressed. My office is a safe space that is free of judgment for those who are looking to grow and develop because everyone deserves to live a fulfilling and meaningful life.

I offer a wide range of services, from emotional and behavioral therapy to career and resolution counseling, as well as specific counseling for anxiety, PTSD, trauma, and depression.

Therapy for everyone

A giant misconception people often have is that therapy is only for those whose lives are in shambles or for those who have had something traumatic happen to them. Therapy is for everyone, no matter how insignificant your issues may seem, because sometimes life becomes too much to handle alone.

Whether you’re in need of assistance with a specific situation or you’re just trying to plot a new, happier, healthier course in your life, I am confident my services will be beneficial as we work toward the future you envision.

Treatment specializations include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Mood Disorders
  • PTSD
  • Sexual Assault
  • Male Sexual Assault Survivors
  • Work and Career Issues
  • Life Transitions (birth of a child, changing jobs, retirement, divorce, and more)
  • Stress Management
  • Conflict Resolution

I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, providing services that span from therapy for depression to grief counseling and beyond. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my client’s individual needs to help them attain the personal growth they’re striving for.

I am trained in the following:

When we work together, I will draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches. Don’t expect a one-size-fits-all therapy approach! We will select approaches that address your experiences and your goals. These may include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • EMDR
  • Humanistic
  • Motivational Interviewing 
  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)


and other modalities to meet your needs and goals.

Education

I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Michigan State University.
