There is a path toward greater mental and emotional freedom and well-being in this life. Unpleasant emotions and thoughts can so easily fuel the repetitive loops of critical self-views, anxiety, and depression. Yet the human mind has the incredible capacity to be malleable, adapt, and change for the better.
I utilize elements of mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy in sessions and take a special interest in integrating the full scope of human experience (actions, relationships, thoughts, emotions, etc.). I work with clients to cultivate what is supportive and skillful in their lives and to remove the fuel from the vehicle of their suffering.
There is no wrong reason to seek counseling. Connection, understanding, and support are the antidote to isolation and distress. I value empowerment and supporting clients to work toward their goals and values. Please reach out, I would love to hear from you!

Are you experiencing a difficult time in your life right now? Are you having trouble in your relationships? Maybe you are having difficulty adapting to change or managing your emotions. I want to help you through this difficult or transitional period in your life, so that you can shine brighter and be the best you that you can be. Life can be difficult. It can take you through high and lows, but the most important thing to remember is that you do not have to go through these times alone. My passion is to walk with my clients through the ups and downs of the day, and help guide them through their unique journey so that they can become the best version of themselves.
I am a Limited Licensed Counselor (LLC). I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Sociology and Psychology from Oakland University, and my Masters of Arts in Counseling from Oakland University. I have worked with individuals that suffer from anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, life transitions, and relationship issues. Additionally, I work with the LGBTQ+ population, couples, and families. I approach counseling with a humanistic approach that is centered toward the individual that I am working with, and I use cognitive-behavioral and dialectic-behavioral informed techniques to work through your treatment.

Stories are ways that we connect with our desires. They are opportunities for us to escape our current reality and immerse ourselves into an alternative one with various genres—adventure, romance, fantasy, you name it. However, life is not as simple as a storybook; there is no linear storyline, no frivolous love interest, no secret ingredient to success, and definitely not as predictable as we’d like it to be. Luckily, we are not books. We are much more fluid—we can change the narrative whenever, wherever, or however we would like. When it really comes down to it, we are the author of our own stories. It is up to us to move in a way that will make or break our future.
When we choose ourselves, we choose peace, love, vulnerability, and growth.
I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Psychology from Michigan State University and in the future I will receive my master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Wayne State University. As both my studies and my experiences with clients have taught me, we are the expert of ourselves. We cannot control what happens to us, but we can control how we react to it. By doing this, we then can take charge of the direction that we want our stories to go in. Narrative therapy is a therapeutic technique that I am drawn to because it separates the person from the problem. I believe that our problems do not define us, rather it divines us. Certain events that happen “to” us actually happens for us so that we can gain a lesson, perspective, and growth from then on. What truly defines us is how we go about making the most of what we learn during our experiences in life. I believe that therapy should be a collaborative effort between the client and the therapist. Therapy should not “fix” a person—we are not construction projects. Rather, we are all souls trying to find our way back to ourselves. As the therapist, I will provide my clients with the skills necessary to find their way.
Therapy should be a safe space to express the deepest and most vulnerable parts of ourselves and I will make it my mission to ensure that anyone who walks into my office is given the chance to express themselves freely and privately. With my help, I have hope that anyone who chooses to work with me can change the narrative.

For most people it can be challenging to seek help, and I applaud anyone reading this for doing so. I believe that we all need someone in our lives to talk to and connect with. Having an outside unbiased perspective into your world view makes for an eye-opening experience. This insight can not only allow you to gain deeper understanding into your own self, but also can make you feel seen and heard. I strive to provide a compassionate, respectful and supportive space for everyone to feel safe and comfortable. Mental health is incredibly important and having open dialogue where you can share your thoughts and feelings openly is pivotal.
I like to meet each client with where they're at by using a collaborative approach with the client as the expert in themselves. Everyone has different needs and areas they'd like to work on, and I will often combine different therapeutic theories in order to best serve my clients, so that they feel empowered to utilize effective coping strategies. Not every theory or strategy is going to work for every person, so tailoring my approach to suit your needs is my goal. The counseling approaches I enjoy include Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral, Gestalt, Humanistic, Narrative, and Multicultural counseling.
Areas of Specialty:
I work with adults individually from all backgrounds. I enjoy collaborating with clients on creating goals for working on issues such as generalized anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, codependency, adjustment issues, and grief and loss. I am a proud ally of the LGBTQIA+ community and welcome everyone from all walks of life.
I am a Limited Licensed Counselor (LLC) and received my Master of Arts in Counseling degree from Oakland University. I completed multiple internships in a wide variety of settings, including Gilda's Club in Royal Oak, which is a nonprofit support community focused on helping those battling cancer, in remission, and loved ones that have been impacted by cancer. I completed my school counseling internships in two middle schools, and one of them housed fourth through eighth grade. In addition to my LLC, I have my School Counselor License and understand the stress that goes on in a school.
Throughout my graduate program I worked as a graduate assistant in a career counseling setting, focused on helping traditional college students, non-traditional students, and alumni with resumes, interviewing, job search, and more.
Throughout my counseling practicum course, I had the opportunity to work with adults on various issues such as generalized anxiety, anorexia, depression, grief and loss, and vulnerable narcissism.

The decision to seek therapy can be daunting. My goal is to provide a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental environment for everyone who steps into my office.

Every person who enters my office comes with their own unique history, identity, strengths and therapy goals. With this focus, I employ a variety of therapeutic approaches including existential therapy, emotion focused therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and the Gottman Method so I can tailor our sessions to your needs.
In our sessions, I will use compassion and unconditional positive regard to create a space where you can bring your whole self. I welcome all clients (both couples and individuals).
My specialization is adults dealing with depression, anxiety, and trauma. In our first session, we will go through an intake process where we discuss your presenting issues, your history, your health, my role as a therapist and your goals for therapy. As we continue to work together, we will identify causes, patterns, behaviors, and systems that may be contributing to your issues. We will work together to equip you with the knowledge and self-confidence you need to make changes and develop positive coping strategies to improve your quality of life.
I hold a MA from Oakland University. I am a queer, trans-inclusive intersectional feminist and this ethos underpins my therapeutic practice. I volunteer in my community and believe in the importance of contributing to my community. I also place a great deal of importance on self-care and practice it myself through my love of music, good food, the outdoors, tennis, animals, fantasy novels, ttrpgs and other nerdy pursuits.
