Specialty Areas: I have been providing mental health services in the Kalamazoo area for over 25 years through a variety of settings. My training in crisis intervention, trauma and recovery has assisted many people in thriving past the challenging events in their lives. I have been trained in Critical Incident Stress Management and utillize those skills in assisting people through the recovery process.

My clinical expertise includes working with individuals who may be experiencing symptoms of a mood disorder, panic/anxiety episodes, life transitional issues, relationship problems and LGBT issues.

My clinical practice provides therapeutic intervention services to individuals and couples (17 years & older).

Treatment Philosophy: Life seems to come at us at times when we are least prepared for the challenge. We try to handle the situations the best that we can, but often can benefit from a trusted neutral person to process our feelings and emotions into a logical path towards action. I truly believe in the resiliency of the human spirit and work towards promoting that in my therapy.

The therapeutic experience can often be a challenging endeavor for most of us. The desire to move past our conflicted life themes isn’t easy, but it is truly a rewarding experience. I believe in each person who enters into the therapeutic relationship with me and feel honored to walk with them along their life path. My goal is to provide each individual with tools to build the quality of life that they are seeking.

Education/Experience: I received a B.L.S. in Psychology from Hillsdale College. I completed a M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Western Michigan Universtiy. I have been registered through the State of Michigan as a Limited Licensed Psychologist since 1987.
