I received a BA in Child Psychology and a MA in Counseling, from Oakland University. I have been a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional since 2019. I am working on getting my certification as an Autism Specialist.
I am a native and licensed in Michigan with 7 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & depression. I have a devotion to youth, especially youth and adults with special needs. I frequently give presentations to youth about service dogs, and provide insight on what it is like to live with Cerebral Palsy. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
Additional areas of focus: Anger management, Autism and Asperger Syndrome, Intellectual Disability
