I also hold a Master’s degree in Integrated Healthcare with a minor in Policy & Evaluation form University of Michigan, as well as dual Bachelor degrees in Social Work and Psychology from Eastern Michigan University. I enjoy creating an alliance with clients, helping them to feel comfortable, safe and understood. My orientation is strength-based, solutions-focused, and goal-oriented. I am trained in a number of clinical methods of practice and am certified in trauma-based treatment. I strive to have a practice style that is warm and interactive, emphasizing self-discovery, empowerment, and acceptance. My work with clients is person-centered, meeting the client where they are at.
I love working with children, teens, families, and emerging adults. That’s my passion! Past experience includes Michigan Medicine, the University of Michigan Hospital, Prechter Bipolar Research Program, Michigan VA System, and Community Mental Health settings. I have experience working with dual diagnosis, trauma, ADHD, emotion impulsivity and dysregulation, depression, anxiety, behavioral interventions, and a variety of other mental health presentations.
I enjoy gardening and outdoor activities
I spend most mornings with my beloved horse, a Spanish Andalusian named Antares.
