I am a licensed clinical social worker in the State of Michigan, ASIST Suicide Intervention Master Trainer, LEO Lecturer for the University of Michigan’s School of Social Work, a social researcher, performing and visual artist, and an avid believer in the healing power of creative communication through the arts. 

In my clinical practice, I seek to provide a safe and brave space for wellness, inclusive of individual culture, spirituality, and identity. I specialize in work with those impacted by complex trauma, depression, suicide, anxiety, sexual assault and abuse, substance use, body image, interpersonal relationship challenges, life transitions, education/work/life balance.

As a therapist, I understand that psychological conflict can also emerge through cultural disruption, social injustice, and historical trauma. I employ an Anti-Racist, Trauma‐Informed-Care approach to help clients heal, learn, grow, and thrive. I support treatment goals and objectives based on an honest examination of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors without judgment.

I see myself as a guide along your self‐defined healing journey, nurturing joy, hope, and a healthy sense of self along the way.  I am an active and former member of numerous mental health and social justice-related organizations and initiatives.  

I have been a member and Co-Chair of Tribal Behavioral Health Communication Network, Tribal Representative State of Michigan Behavioral Health Advisory Council, University of Michigan Graduate School of Social Work Alumni Board of Governors, AIHFS Circles of Care Community Advisory Council, and Detroit's Seraphine Collective.

In addressing the concerns of my clients, I wish to meet them where they are and then walk with them through the journey of self-discovery and personal empowerment. Critical to this fluid equation is the cultivation of the therapeutic alliance and a sincere focus on deep, empathic listening.

I apply the basic elements of mindfulness, whole-person perspective, and cognitive behavioral therapy in a series of counseling sessions that aim to guide the client toward their desired goals of healing, balance, and improved inner health.

The pressures of modern life in stressful times or situations can lower a shadow of despair over anyone's sense of well-being. These may manifest as problems with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and/or the inability to maintain positive connections in personal relationships. My goal in therapy is to simply be present with my client in a very real way that assists them as they learn to access their own inner resources and reclaim meaningful equilibrium in their lives.
