I hold my Limited License Professional Counselor (LLPC) and received my Master of Arts degree in Counselor Education from Western Michigan University. The program is accredited through the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and related Education Programs (CACREP). Additionally, I am a Nationally Board Certified Counselor .
I enjoy working with a variety of clients, including teens and adults of all ages, with whom I offer a safe environment to share one's story and explore steps towards positive processing and change. I seek to be empathetic, personable, non-judgmental and genuine in my interactions. The primary lens I utilize in my counseling is Narrative Therapy, which explores the client's current story and assists with reframing the story in order to bring about a more positive perspective. When we are able to reframe, we are able to become empowered with new ideas, new choices and new ways of looking at our life. In additional to Narrrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems Theory is an approach that I am passionate about as I assist clients in processing multiple relational traumas.
