Practicing in Grandville
It is an honor and privilege to walk along side you during this therapeutic journey. Your effort at personal growth takes courage and is amazing. Life is challenging but there are solutions and pathways to healing. I am here for support and will compassionately yet firmly nudge you when needed. Together we will establish a strong therapeutic alliance and an atmosphere of safety and healing. If you trust the process, self-observe, and be curious, you will build effective coping skills to feel and do better.

I am a LLPC and earned a Master of Arts degree in Integrated Recovery for Co-Occurring Disorders from Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School.

Additional certifications include CADC and CCJP, and I’m certified to facilitate Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), domestic violence-specific MRT, and DBT-informed therapy.
