Have you been feeling overwhelmed, fearful, irritable, or frustrated with your kids or family, or is your child having difficulty making good choices? Has your family unit recently changed through adoption, foster care, divorce, a new marriage, a new baby, or miscarriage? If any part of these questions resonates with you, please reach out. You'll feel better after just one therapy session. Plus, I have years of experience in helping families get back on track. Clients have said I have a down-to-earth, non-judgmental style that makes them comfortable opening up about their problems. They have also described me as very competent in crises, & non-judgmental. In my free time, you can find me by Lake Michigan with a cup of coffee, on a walk with my family, finding new houseplants, or gardening outside.

Although I specialize in trauma, adoption, & foster care, I value a variety of clientele. I appreciate working with all ages, from children as young as 4 to adults as old as 104. I love helping kids, adults, & families through play therapy, art therapy, sand tray therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, & solution-focused therapy.

I understand that one of the difficult parts of therapy is making the first call. Know that you are the expert on yourself & I am the expert on the situation or challenge. With that in mind, I believe we can be a dream team to help you or your child become the best version of themselves/themselves.
