I work with teens and adults struggling with with addiction, grief, anxiety, depression and maternal mental health issues. In addition, I have experience working with combat veterans. In sessions, I integrate DBT, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and mindfulness techniques. This approach helps clients to identify the core issues contributing to their unwanted behavior while learning and implementing new skills for making changes. In addition, I am trained in EMDR and use it in my work with clients who have experienced trauma. I help my clients identify and develop their strengths, so they feel equipped to handle the difficulties of life and confidence to achieve their goals.
I received my Master’s degree from Michigan State University School of Social Work. I also received certification in addiction and veteran treatment from MSU. Prior to joining New Perspective Counseling, I worked for 3 years at Oakland County Community Mental Health.
