My Approach to Helping

I work with adults who struggle with mental health disorders and guide them to become more of who they want to be. During sessions, I offer a range of therapeutic modalities with many people selecting the use of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). With EMDR, many people can reprocess old memories and begin to see different perspectives for these memories. The new perspectives help them to see the resilience in themselves that helped them to overcome the situation, which allows them freedom from the weight of the uncomfortable emotions linked with their original perspectives.

I believe in people's ability to heal and change. I encourage people to reprocess the past and use their past as a tool for becoming who they believe they were created to be. I have a nurturing and encouraging style that helps people to feel safe and push themselves toward the next steps in their journeys.

More Info About My Practice

I have nine years of experience while working in a couple of agencies. I started my private practice on January 1, 2021. In addition to my private practice, I teach at Grand Valley State University and am earning my DSW from Walden University.

My nurturing and encouraging style might help you to take the next steps toward becoming the person that you were created to be. Please contact me for a free 10-minute phone consultation to learn if my style meets your needs.

My Role as a Therapist

As a therapist, I walk with people while they are on their journey toward healing and growth. I use a person-centered approach that allows me to focus the session on a person's worldview and perspective.
