About me

I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Michigan with 4 years of professional work experience. I am a caring and supportive individual that will help guide you to learn the skills you need, while supporting you through your therapeutic journey. I completed my Master's degree in Social Work at the University of Michigan.

Throughout my career, I have worked with a wide range of individuals. This experience has equipped me with a profound understanding of the challenges and barriers faced by differing individuals. I utilize an array of treatment approaches that include, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and motivational interviewing.

Everyone has their own unique challenges in life. I look forward to walking alongside you on your therapeutic journey, providing guidance, support, and a listening ear every step of the way. Together, you can navigate the challenges that arise in life, schedule an appointment today.
