I enjoy helping clients find a better way. The 'way' being whatever current path you're on that isn't working or bringing you joy, i.e. relationships, marriage, career, feeling stuck, anxious, sad, hauntings from a traumatic past, struggling with a loss or perhaps not liking who you see in the mirror each day. Life is full of challenges and events that bring us up and those that bring us down. Counseling provides the time and space to work through your thoughts and feelings, to change your view of the world, improve your sense of self worth and increase your confidence and ability to cope with all that comes along in life.
I approach these experiences with empathic listening and genuine curiosity, as well as compassion and respect. I understand the courage it takes to delve into issues that feel uncomfortable and sometimes painful. I provide a private office in Farmington Hills where you can feel safe, where honesty is valued and not judged. My approach to our work together also includes asking questions, offering interpretations, providing psycho-education, encouragement, honesty and a splash of humor.
Beyond my training, I bring to therapy my own journey and the lessons that have come from life's bumps as well as the successes. I have experienced the challenges of being a caregiver to a parent with dementia, as well as grieved the loss of a parent. My family members have struggled with cancer and I understand the fear and helplessness that accompanies this disease. I've also experienced the joy of loving relationships and strong friendships. I have been blessed with children on the gifted spectrum, and know as well the stress that comes with their unique view of the world and heightened sensitivities.
Therapy can be a life-changing process, and I feel honored each day when I can share with someone that experience of positive change and re-discovering joy!

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
In addition to obtaining a Masters in Counseling, I completed a specialization in Mental Health.
I have a specific interest in supporting men and women who feel they go through life not being enough. When we struggle with low self worth, everything else in our life also becomes a struggle; relationships, careers, as well as navigating life's changes. Low self esteem can look and feel like sadness, lacking purpose and motivation, feeling insignificant and unheard to the rest of the wold, and sometimes being argumentative. Through the counseling process I help men and women reframe their view of self, regain control of how they think and feel, and reconnect to those parts of themselves that can endure change, and feel joy.
