COUNSELOR BIO

BACKGROUND


I am a licensed marco and clinical social worker. I hold a BA in psychology from St. Mary's College of Orchard Lake and a Masters in Social Work from the University of Michigan. 

I have served on staff with the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office as a counselor, case manager, and supervisor of services to the inmate population providing mental health  and substance counseling, crisis intervention and rehabilitative programming. 

I have served as volunteer broad member to a local domestic violence agency dedicated to providing support, education, and raising awareness about abuse to families suffering from domestic violence.

I am dedicated to social action and community-based needs through local volunteerism.


AREAS OF EXPERTISE


  • Mood Disorders and Generalized Anxiety 
  • Substance abuse and dependency 
  • Cognitive therapies for negative thinking
  • Domestic Violence and relationship problems
  • Stress management and single life problems


PHILOSOPHY


I believe in working closely with people to help them reach their fullest potential through developing goals, creating healthy boundaries, and empowering them for change.

Using evidence-based cognitive behavioral methods, I will help you challenge everyday thinking that keeps you locked in self-destructive or unhealthy patterns, to ultimately improve your quality of life and satisfaction of relationships.

It is crucial for you to understand your issues fully so corrective action and healing may happen. I will meet you where you are in life and incorporate your culture, personal talents and strengths, religion, sexual orientation, and ethnic background into the counseling process for authentic exchange.

Together we can explore what is limiting your quality of life and help you reach your goals for change through the dynamic process of

therapy.
