Thank you for visiting our site. I received a Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Spring Arbor University, where I received a Bachelor in Social Work. I have worked for 20 years for agencies serving children and families. I opened this private practice in 2014.
I continued to gain valuable lessons from the adults and children I partnered with. I specialize in work with anxiety and depression, family therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and early childhood behavior issues. I also am a certified auricular acupuncturist. That is ear acupuncture in a five point protocol for relief of symptoms of PTSD, depression, addictions, and anxiety.
As your counselor, you honor me by sharing your life and growth with me. I will not hide myself behind silence or position and will have high regard for you as a person. I will bring the best that I know from my study and experience. I will bring you the highest of my insight, and wisdom. I will keep a holistic perspective in our work together because I believe that the Physical, Spiritual, and Soul (mind, will, emotions) all work together to form the wholly healthy person.
I will keep our work confidential between you and me. I do have clinical supervisor and sometime, I will ask for case consultation. You can expect truth from me even when you may not want to hear it and I am willing to hear the truth from you. I will always have compassion and empathy for you in all that we do. I value you as a person in need of care. I will do my best to honor your innate ability to reach your best life.
