About this pro


I work with women to find balance, feel grounded, be present and comfortable in the skin they’re in, specializing in mindfulness and resolving symptoms of depression and anxiety by adopting appropriate coping strategies and finding peace.

I am dedicated to supporting my clients through life’s transitions and stresses. My person-centered holistic approach allows me to develop individually-tailored treatment plans to support you in reaching your therapy goals.

I’m in network with most insurances and provide a sliding scale for private pay clients and offer teletherapy as needed.

I love working with people who are open to positive change and willing to try new strategies to reach their goals.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I offer a free 20 minute consultation over the phone or in person to see if we are a good fit. If not, I can refer you to a colleague. If we connect, then I will provide you with intake paperwork and schedule you for a session.

I use an answering service, so you will never have to deal with a full mailbox or not getting through when I'm with another client.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I'm a licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist in the state of Michigan with 10+ years of experience.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

I'm in network with most major insurances and prefer to go that route (if available).Private pay cost are $150 for intake, and $100 for a standard 60-min session. If there is a financial need, I am willing to a reduced rate of $75-50 per session depending on the situation.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I only work with women and specialize in anxiety, depression, pregnancy and fertility issues, stress, caregiving, chronic pain, illness, and grief.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Don't get discouraged if it's not the right fit. Finding the right therapist is like finding the right hairdresser - it can take a few bad haircuts to find the right person who "gets you" and your needs. Take the time to find someone you can feel comfortable with that will provide the kind of support you need. Don't be afraid to say, "This isn't working for me."


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

What is most helpful when navigating stressful situations in your life? Do you just need to vent or are you wanting someone to identify choices? Do you prefer to talk it all out and process out loud? Do you need someone to ask deeper questions to get to the root of the issue? Do you want someone to call you on your shit when you're self-sabotaging?

Every therapist is different and knowing what you need will help you find who you want.
