Are you feeling overwhelmed and worried about the challenges of daily life? You may look confident and happy on the outside, yet feel unfulfilled in relationships with your partner, family, friends, and coworkers. Lately, you’ve been doubting your self-worth and contribution. Life shouldn’t constantly have to feel this stressful.
I earned my Master’s degree from Wayne State University in Social Work in 2013. When you have a visit with me, expect me to be warm, calming, genuine, humorous and collaborative. I will walk with you in noticing your present and past challenges, and together, we will explore ways to move forward and achieve your higher goals. My intent is to help you understand the root causes of problematic patterns and unhelpful thinking while developing stronger awareness and regulation of your emotions through building healthy coping skills.
Two therapeutic philosophies I stand by are the concepts that our mood follows our behavior and that, in order to find balance in our lives, we must learn how to move between accepting reality as it is and changing ourselves in the hopes of better outcomes. My areas of specialization include anxiety, PTSD, depression, stress management, and life transitions.
I believe that the most important component of a working therapeutic relationship is the ability to trust and be honest with your therapist. I aim to create a safe space for you to feel comfortable in exploring your deepest concerns.
It takes courage to pursue therapy and talk about personal life details with a professional. I am happy to speak with you more about the process of therapy, what to expect and how I may be of help. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your personal goals toward feeling well again.
