Most of us encounter times in our life when we experience difficulties. Counseling helps in these times so that we do not have to face these challenges alone. Taking the first step toward making some healthy changes in your life by sharing with a trained, objective counselor can be one of best first steps you will ever take.
My goal is to provide a safe and confidential atmosphere where clients can explore, grow, and experience healing change. I am priveleged to work alongside my clients and witness significant changes occur in their lives. At times, talk therapy alone does not facilitate enough change, therefore, I incorporate Experiential Therapy as well. Experiential therapy is a creative process that includes talking, art, music, metaphors and psychodrama. We "experience" hurts in our lives, therefore it is important in the therapeutic process to "experience" healing in our growth journey. I also utilize the Internal Family Systems Model. This is a non-pathologizing, client-led appraoch that allows my clients the much needed space to tap into their own curiousity and inner wisdom. For more information on Internal Family Systems visit:
In addition to working at my private practicein Rochester, Michigan, I work at Onsite workshops in Cumberland Furnace, TN. Onsite offers intensive therapeutic workshops. www.onsiteworkshops.com
