I received my Bachelors degree in 1990 and my Master degree in 1992 from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. My career began in 1992 working within the community mental health system as a counselor, supervisor and administrator. In 2005 I transitioned to outpatient counseling which has allowed me extensive experience working with youth, adolescence and adults.
For over 20 years I have worked with individuals, couples, families and groups of all ages with a variety of issues. I specialize in therapy for those experiencing depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, adjustment to life challenges, divorce, marital and relationship problems. My therapeutic approach is integrative counseling with a solution focused cognitive-behavioral foundation. I believe that counseling is a collaborative effort between me, the counselor and you the client. The purpose and direction of treatment is realized through prompt intervention with specific and limited goals. We will work together utilizing our combined resources to identify and amplify change.
