I am a compassionate and experienced therapist who offers a safe space to help you work through your concerns and meet your goals.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Ann Arbor, MI
I have an eclectic approach as a counselor and utilize many techniques and therapy modalities, but the way I understand individuals is through the lens of CBT. I believe that our thoughts and core beliefs inform our choices and impact our emotions and behaviors. In order to better understand who clients are and what they may be struggling with, I believe it is necessary to investigate the relationship between their thoughts and beliefs, emotions, and their behaviors.
I received my initial training in DBT in 2015-2016 while working with veterans in both individual and group therapy. I have continued to utilize further trainings in this method and utilize DBT skills in combination with other therapy approaches
I have three years of training in ACT and use it’s approaches and materials frequently in my treatment, especially with clients who are experiencing anxiety and control issues
