I pride myself on being friendly and professional. I am a certified Licensed Professional Counselor for the state of Michigan. I am also a Ph.D. candidate and will
finish this doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology in 2015. I regularly attend seminars and conventions to ensure that my work is informed by the most advanced psychotherapuetic methods and
evidenced based treatments.
I have over 8 years of experience as a psychotherapist, counselor, and life coach. I am a client-centered therapist who focuses on client problems and possess a strong medical, counseling, and psychology background. This varied background gives me broader insight for more individualized treatment. Additionally, I advocate Positive Psychology which is based on improving client strengths to improve the client's overall emotional well being and do not focus so much on problems.
I have experience working with a diverse clientele with mental illness, chronic illness, depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD, psychosis, bipolar disorder, and many more. Primary treatments include, Cognitive-behavioral therapy, EMDR, Individual Psychotherapy,Positive psychology coaching improving self-esteem and confidence, and Relaxation techniques. I will also use other treatments should they be required.
I graduated with a Bachelor's degree from California State University in Biology, Master's degree from the University of South Florida in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling, and will graduate from Walden University with a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 2015. I am a Michigan qualified Clinical Supervisor. I am also certified for telehealth. :To understand more about this service please visit this link.
