I truly believe that YOU can be your own superhero, and I can help you discover how to empower yourself.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Royal Oak, MI
I am a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC) with the Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals since 2018.
I am trained in the Transition to Independence Process (TIP) Model, which emphasizes youth voice and choice and supports youth and young adults with their transition to adulthood. I have specialized specifically in the teen and young adult population since 2014.
I use MI specifically but not exclusively with substance abuse populations, including addressing ambivalence and meeting a person at the stage of change where they are.
I use Mindfulness to help shift one's relationship to their thoughts and feelings and to create space between a person and their emotions.
I use CBT techniques to help oneself catch, challenge, and change their thought patterns to be more balanced.
