Our own thoughts can be both a positive and negative place to be. I believe that psychotherapy, matched with a very warm, welcoming, and beneficial therapeutic relationship, can be a wonderful process in which we are able to see our thoughts in different ways. Through my own experience with therapy, I found that I was able to give my positive thoughts/experiences more room to shine, while also finding different, more beneficial perspectives, in which to view my maladaptive thoughts. This is an experience that I hope to be able to replicate with each and every one of my clients.
I am committed to creating an environment for my clients that helps them to feel welcome, heard, and understood. I aim to develop a trusting and open therapeutic relationship; one that helps us to achieve our therapeutic goals. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, anger, interpersonal relationship difficulties, adjustment difficulties, academic distress, and grief. I utilize CBT, emotion-focused, solution-focused, interpersonal, and psychodynamic approaches in order to address the different difficulties that may arise during the therapeutic session.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Michigan State University in 2018. I then continued my educational journey at Western Michigan University. During my education at WMU, I completed a year-long internship at MSU Counseling and Psychological Services. I am excited to begin working within the community.
