Licensed Professional Counselor (MI)
I have been a counselor for a little over 10 years now, and I absolutely love it! And while I've never been all that great with technology, I have figured it out and dove into the realm of telehealth...and I'm loving that too! It is making it possibly to live a more flexible life and be able to be more available to my 3 young boys.
I provide professional help in the following areas:
>Psychological issues: depression, anxiety, trauma, personality disorders
>Personal concerns: identity issues, sexuality, self-esteem, assertion, family problems, stress management
>Interpersonal issues: communication skills, dating and relationship issues, conflict management
In general, I am available to discuss any important personal concern you may be facing and work to develop new ways of resolving the problem or managing the concern.
And when I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my family doing various things- camping, hiking, fishing, doing crafts of some sort, and reading. Or whatever else sounds fun!
I have worked in a variety of settings including private practice, inpatient psychiatric units, community mental health system, and the jail. These settings have given me experience treating a wide range of issues.
I graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelors degree in Psychology and Masters degree in Professional Counseling. I have been trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Prolonged Exposure by BTech. I have also been trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy by the Beck Institute.
