I believe counseling is a deeply moving and personal experience. One that should be unique for each person. I am honored to walk down the winding path of change with my clients. I have been trained to use multiple evidence based practices in my work, including Mindfulness Based Strategies, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Trauma Informed Care. I have worked with hundreds of families, individuals, and couples over the past decade of service. I have served as an Adjunct Professor in the Integrative and Holistic Health Department of Western Michigan University, a guest lecture on the topic of depression and anxiety in the LGBTQ adolescent population for OutFront, and have done trainings for counselors to ensure cultural competency in dealing with diverse populations. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, Certified Family Therapist, Approved Clinical Supervisor, and I am completing my development plan to become a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I have a doctorate in Counseling and Supervision, a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health, and a post-graduate degree in Marriage, Family and Couples Counseling. I offer individual counseling to those older then 10, family counseling, and couples counseling dealing with a wide range of issues including adjustment issues, depression, anxiety, substance use, identity issues, and more.
