Psychotherapy In A Caring, Compassionate, and Accepting Setting

I am passionate about counseling older teens and adults who are struggling with a variety of mood disorders, personality disorders, and life crises. My desire is to provide an environment of unconditional acceptance, compassion, support, sensitivity, and safety for those who are seeking to work through their issues in a non-judgmental setting

All individuals have their own unique belief and value system. While my counseling comes from a Christian perspective, I enjoy working with people from different backgrounds and belief systems, and learning about belief systems that vary from Christianity..

About Us

I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Spring Arbor University in 1988 and a Master of Social Work degree from Michigan State University in 1991. I am a certified Social Worker through the State of Michigan. I completed two practicums while in graduate school: the first at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Battle Creek, Michigan and the second at Hospice of Jackson in Jackson, Michigan.

I was employed as a Resident Technician and a Mental Health Therapist for Eaton, Ingham, and Clinton County Community Mental Health Board from 1988 to 2002. I worked for Psychological Health Systems as a Psychotherapist from 2000 to 2002. I have since been in full time private practice, dealing with teens and adults with a variety of mental health issues.
