LMSW - Clinical
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.
LMSW - Clinical
I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Social Work from Wayne State University. I have been working in the field of clinical social work in multiple areas including therapy and crisis intervention. I specialize in trauma, anxiety, depression, and self-esteem. I incorporate both psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy treatment modalities.
I utilize psychodynamic therapy to help clients gain a better understanding of how life experiences can impact current thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps client’s understand ways to shift negative ideas, beliefs, and sense of self that experiences like trauma can produce.
I provide a comfortable environment for clients, free from judgement and where no one leaves feeling criticized. I listen and allow my clients to tell me what they are going through and actively explore thoughts and feelings. I enjoy working with people to help them learn life-long coping mechanisms and interventions to help them thrive and grow on a daily basis. I enjoy being a part of the journey towards greater understanding and accomplishing the goals each sets for their lives.
LLMSW - Clinical
I completed my Master’s in social work through Fordham University, NY and I am licensed through the State of Michigan.
Although I am newly licensed, I am no stranger to serving those in need. For seven years I served as a medic in the Army and had a combat tour in Afghanistan. Upon getting out of the service I wanted to continue to serve. I fulfilled this by pursuing a career in therapy. I also have over a decade of experience working with individuals who have suffered traumatic brain injuries and was a board member for the Brain Injury Association of Michigan.
I work with both families and individuals from all ethnicities, races, religions, sexual orientations, gender expressions, and intersections. However, as a veteran I am most familiar with and always willing to help those in the military community and their families.
I am committed to those I serve in my clinical practice. My clients will be given a judgment-free and safe place in which I will assist them. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Acceptance and Commitment practices with my clients.
By working together and building an honest relationship we will determine which course of treatment is best suited for you and your family.

Being a therapist is more than a job--it reflects a core part of me that enjoys connecting to people on a real level. Clients find my authentic and engaging manner a comforting invitation to explore and relate to themselves in new ways.
